Wonderful beach vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our two adult kids with their spouses, and our two grandchildren truly enjoyed the warmth and coziness of this beautiful 'cottage'. The open feel of the common living space worked so well for us, yet there were spots where one could get away for some quiet time if desired. We enjoyed the screened in porch, the outside deck and fire pit where we roasted marshmallows for samores, as well as the game room area and 'den' space on the lower level. Thanks for sharing the bikes and beach toys, too! The beautiful decor and fully stocked kitchen made it fun to cook our meals together. The three bathrooms worked out wonderfully, too!!!

We loved our short walk to the beach and saw so many beautiful deer at all times of day. The grandchildren got to ride ponies at the nearby stable, as well as ride go-karts and bumper boats at a spot about 15 min. away. Several nights we drove into town for some good food at local restaurants Most of all we savored the Michigan sunsets after dinner each night. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Like staying at your best friend's beach house

  • 5 of 5

We 5 sisters just returned from a lovely long weekend at Dancing Bear Cottage and we all agree that we've never felt more welcome at a home rental. Everything about the place is inviting, right down to a refrigertor stocked with all those things you might have forgotten. Everything a family could want is right there - enough bikes for a family, beach chairs on a cart, games in the house, firewood for the fire pit, and very accommodating deer who like to hang out in the back yard. As a grandma, I wa impressed by the layout...a private master suite, two additional bedrooms with a shared bath, and the downstairs den with full bath. Plenty of room for us, our 2 kids, and their children, with all of us having some private space. Highly recommended.

Last fall was our first stay at the Dancing Bear Cottage...we are going back this fall...we loved it that much! The home is everything the pictures show and more! It was very clean and well maintained and has everything you might need! The atmosphere in the house and the area is fantastic...it is warm, cozy and one of the most relaxing places I have ever stayed...there is plenty to do in the area...or just stay at the house and relax...the beach is a short walk from the house (about 1 1/2 blocks)...think this may become a yearly trip!

the owners are very easy to communicate with and very helpful with questions...

The best part of the whole weekend was coming back one evening and finding 2 deer in the front yard...
