Bear Lake house description

Three Bears Lodge - Not Your Average Rental


Three Bears Lodge offers the best of both worlds! Traditional Michigan cottage charm with all the bells and whistles you expect from a NEW home. Features include 100 feet of frontage on beautiful Bear Lake, large dock, expansive yard/lawn (great for outdoor games!), firepit, professionally-designed, exposed aggregate patios and covered porches and OUTDOOR HOT TUB.

Bear Lake is a well kept secret: close to everything while offering the seclusion of being in the middle of nowhere! It's a terrific spot for a family gathering or golf getaway. The lake features 1,800 acres with a sandy bottom and little boat traffic, making it great for fishing, skiing, sailing and swimming. This cottage is extremely clean and well-kept with everything you will need to make your vacation enjoyable. Sorry no pets or smokers please.

We offer the cottage for rent for a limited number of weeks each summer. We enjoy nice properties while we travel and strive to keep our cottage up to the highest standards. This is not your typical rental....it's more like a high end bed and breakfast, but you provide the breakfast! You'll find wonderful mattresses, down comforters with duvets, featherbeds on the queen beds, etc. Please read the comments from those who have stayed with us!

The interior features extensive hardwood flooring, vaulted ceilings, loads of knotty pine, solid surface and granite countertops, new appliances, ceiling fans, luxury linens, multiple TVs, surround sound stereo, and charming decor throughout. The lower level rec room features large screen home theater and sleeping nook. We also provide wireless internet, private desk with executive leather chair (for those who can't leave the office!), cable TV with free movie channels and cable music through the whole house stereo system.

Please see our calendar below, select weeks are available. Also, see the link to Photobucket for additional pictures.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: This is our second home on Bear Lake. We have been coming to the area for over 15 years. We are an active family and enjoy all the water sports and outdoor activities the area affords. We cherish the special family time and countless memories we have created here with friends and family.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bear Lake:
                  After spending two years exploring almost every Northern Michigan lake, we kept coming back to Bear Lake. At 1800 acres, Bear Lake is big enough without being too big for our children to safely explore. The lake warms quickly as it is only 30 feet deep at its deepest point and most importantly the bottom is sandy and the water crystal clean. The swimming can't be beat as there are few to no weeds. The bays on the lake provide excellent fishing. Bear Lake remains somewhat undiscovered (shh!) and boat traffic is minimal. We love our North Shore location, the large expansive lakeside yard for lawn games and the amazing lakefront views.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  When we completed construction of the cottage we were transferred out of state. Rather than sell, we decided to rent the cottage. It was a great experience and we loved sharing our special place with other families. Now that we are back in state, we continue to rent the cottage a few weeks a year when we can't be there. We have the cottage equipped the way we like it (very nice!) so you'll find this is not a typical rental!
