Great all sports lake with warm water in the summer. Beautiful sunset views from the cottage and deck. Fifteen minutes from incredible, non-crowded Lake Michigan beaches. 15-20 minutes from quaint shopping areas in Manistee, Onekama, Frankfort, and Crystal Lake. Crystal Mtn Ski resort is about 20min as well. Little River Casino just North of Manistee. One Hour from Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: Owner grew up in Manistee and spent summers on Bear Lake. We live in Grand Rapids now and love to go back to visit. Love the area and enjoy windsurfing, water-skiing, sailing, swimming, sunsets, etc etc etc!!! Kids have great fun swimming etc and we don't have to worry about them getting into deep water because it gets deep gradually.

Why Bear Lake:
Great location and nice sandy bottom for swimming.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Few cottages on Bear Lake are right on the water and have a sunset view. This cottage was recently renovated and does not require any updating.
