Keywords: Cozy, Sunset Cottage on Private Lake
We have been apart of Great Bear Lake for a long time now, as our children grow older, less time can be spent here. It is perfect for the smaller family, it has a ton of personality and faces west for the the most beautiful sunsets, we love it just how it is. Quiet is the word, no trains, planes or automobiles.....(lawn mowers and boats though!) This is not your average rental. This is our year round family get-away that we enjoy greatly with our 2 young children and extended relatives and friends. We hope you'll find it as relaxing as we do.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 1996
Could not resist this place....
If a trendy cafe around the corner is your thing than this is not the place for you. This is quiet, lake side fires, hanging on a raft kind of place, fishing, etc.. Turn off the cell phone and relax, bring the dog and watch the sun set till past 9pm Michigan time.......
We loved your cottage on Great Bear Lake!
Your place is better than anything we’ve rented in the past 10 years - it’s sooooo perfect!!! I loved that you’ve preserved much of the vintage 40’s cottage style, it reminded me of the cottages I stayed in with my family when I was growing up. Your attention to detail is what makes your cottage stand out above all the rest, you’ve done an excellent job.
What a charming cottage with a great view of the lake. Very quiet, peaceful place to unwind for a couple of days. Unfortunately our stay was dampened by rain, but we made the best of it and enjoyed just hanging out and listening to the rain. I highly recommend this charming cottage. Barb and Dan were very accommodating with us making plans at the last minute and were a pleasure to talk too. Would love to come and stay again.
I would like to start with saying that Barbara is a dream to deal with. She was very helpful, accommodative and a joy to speak with. We all LOVED the cottage. Late October was a perfect time for our peaceful stay. It was still warm enough to enjoy the outdoors and have fun by the lake, canoeing, take bike rides, and sit by the fire at night. The cottage was clean, well equipped with a lovely view and very appreciated fireplace. We would love to visit again!
We stayed at the cottage with our two young sons during a long weekend in October. As soon as we got there, our boys took over the canoe and the boat house full of beach toys. They were so excited! The cottage is very cozy, spacious and just plain fun! We had a wonderful time taking little trips on the lake, playing at the sandy beach, making s'mores in the evening, taking a bike ride at the fabulous Kal Haven bike trail, visiting South Haven and the Harvest Moon Acres Farm in nearby Gobles that has a huge corn maze and lots of other stuff for the whole family. We were lucky that the weather was so mild but there is so much to do in the area during any season. The property is as pictured, clean and comfortable. The owners were a pleasure to communicate with. We are hoping to visit again!
We spent a week at Sunset Cottage and loved it! The location of the house and beach was perfect for our family. Lots of swimming, floating, digging, and bonfires. There was everything we needed for the beach and in the kitchen too! It was a wonderful quiet week to reconnect with our kids without any schedule. South Haven was close enough for a trip to Shermans for ice cream and to the movies. Thank you so much for a great summer get-away!
My family and I stayed for a long weekend in mid-October. My wife and I have three boys all at 5 years or younger. The cottage is well-kept and very clean. New appliances and many of the amenities for those of us that don't want to completely "rough it." The property is just big enough for the kids to run around and have fun. Although we we're able to get in the lake due to the season, the boys loved the beach to dig in the sand and we had a few canoe rides to check out the lake and the wildlife. We tried fishing but I think they have headed for deeper water due to the time of the year. We had a nice fire going for most of the evenings either in the cottage or on the deck near the beach. My wife and I had a chance to relax over the weekend and the boys had a blast. Stopped in South Haven on the way home for lunch and drove along the scenic route down the lake on our way back. I would definitely recommend this property for a family looking to get away for a long weekend or more, especially in the summer when there's more to do outside with the weather.
If you are looking for a place to get away with family and friends this is the place. The house is very nice and clean with all the amenities you would ever need and the lake front is amazing. They converted the boathouse into a small bar to provide the prefect tropical atmosphere. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place to spend time with the family and friends.
South Haven is 15 miles east of our plalce; that is where the shopping, restaurants, movie theather are
