Nestled on the shores of Lake Huron, Bear Cottage will rekindle childhood memories of an 'Up North' vacation. Each over-sized room provides an ever changing view of the big lake. Enjoy an early morning walk along the beach as animal friends return to their forest homes. Scrabble away the day with a glass of Chardonnay as birds visit numerous lakeside feeding stations. Conclude the day roasting hot dogs over a beach-side fire.
Open windows and sea breezes will invite restful sleep.
Should a more active day be in store, visit Loggers Trace or White Pine National golf course. Catch a dinner trout from nearby ponds. Bike to nearby locales on a recently repaved and widened US 23. Visit the acclaimed NOAA shipwreck or Besser museum in nearby Alpena. You could even dive these wrecks or kayak to nearby islands. Test your appetite on a 'Mountain Burger' from the nearby The Mountain restaurant and pub.
So......turn the cellphone off. Quiet your mind. Return to your childhood. Fully experience nature. Visit Bear Cottage.
Please note my favorite month at Bear Cottage is September. They days are still very warm but the early chill of approaching Autumn provides for excellent sleeping.
No smoking please.

About Linda Suneson Rental Agent
Reared in Motown, I left some 30 years ago, returning to an area I had vacationed at as a child. I am now retired splitting my time between Bear Cottage and Sarasota Florida. I hope you can create many fond memories of this place. I have.
Linda Suneson Rental Agent purchased this Cottage in 1985
Why Linda Suneson Rental Agent chose Alcona Township
This area of the Lower Peninsula is most unique. Many islands dot the big lake. The variety of wildlife is extensive. Eagles frequent the point on which Bear cottage is located. Please be aware that only the month of August is suitable for swimming. Although we have a beautiful sandy beach suitable for sunbathing, volleyball and animal viewing our Lakepoint is very rocky in the water. Either side of us you will find sand beach and sand bottom and our neighbors are most amenable to use of the beach. However if you must have a more private beach and you are anticipating an August vacation I would encourage you to look at some nearby Sturgeon Point listings.
What makes this Cottage unique
The house is 1600 square feet. All rooms are over-sized with separate sitting areas in each bedroom. The house has been updated while retaining its knotty pine charm. Enjoy my library of books accumulated over a lifetime. The lakeside living room is separate from the roadside family room. Television viewing in the family room will not disturb living room tranquility. The 16 x 18 family room may also be used as a third bedroom as it has a queen-sized futon.

Great Time, Great Cottage
We had exactly the vacation we were hoping for, peace, quite and relaxing. No issues with this cottage at all, very spacious and only a few yards from lake Huron. When we arrived it was clean and ready for us. This place is worth checking out! We will definetly consider returning again in the furture. Thank you Linda.
Everything was perfect and clean and comfortable.
The view is spectacular and the area is quiet and peaceful.
Amazing little spot on Lake Huron!! Miss those sunrises

Great Lakefront Cottage
Needed somewhere close to family that lives nearby. Cottage was great location with great amenities. Enjoyed the beach and had plenty of space to spread out. Would definitely rent again.
Clean and Bright
My extended family stayed at Bear cottage this July on the shores of Lake Huron. The cottage was clean, open, and had plenty of room for a large family. In addition to the beautiful setting and location, we found the home owners to be accommodating and easy to contact with questions. We would not hesitate to reserve Bear Cottage for future trips to the Sunrise Side!
The lakeside location of Bear cottage provides many opportunities for viewing wildlife and birds. The sandy beach is wide and deep and is suitable for sun bathing, volleyball, and nightly fires. Our property is located on a rocky point and requires water shoes to enter the water. For those where swimming is a priority we suggest you either seek an inland lake location or at a minimum seek another nearby August rental. Except for polar bears, expectations of in-water activities in other than August are unrealistic.
