Property description

Another great home from Yellow Bird Vacations!

If interested in seeing reviews of this property or any of the other 60 homes we manage in Southwest Michigan, please visit us on the internet at Yellow Bird Vacations in Union Pier, Michigan.

Welcome to Bear Down! This great 5 bedroom 5 bathroom house is designed to be the perfect vacation getaway for you and your family! It is located on a quiet side street and is only a short 1/2 mile walk to the harbert road beach access point(you may also drive and park there). There is a huge grassy front yard, and the house itself is newly painted and outfitted for rental.

Five Bedrooms means plenty of space for everyone. The upstairs master bedroom suite includes an en-suite bathroom and king bed. The room exits to a deck with a staircase down to the the hot tub area. The interior staircase is a metal spiral leading up from the game room. There is also a family room with a pull out sofa and fireplace located immediately outside the upper level Master. The lower level master bedroom suite has an en-suite bathroom as well as a sliding door out to the at lower level deck. The other three bedrooms are off the central hallway. Two have queen beds and the third a full futon bed and a twin futon bed.

There are two large living areas, each located at opposite ends of the house. The living area at the eastern end of the house is attached to the kitchen and dining area, and is perfect for gathering the family for cooking and meals. The western living area is amazing - it has a huge elevated lounge area surrounding a flatscreen tv that is perfect for watching the bears game(but don't get too rowdy), a wet bar, a pool table, and a poker table.

The back of the house has a great elevated deck for barbecuing, dining and sunbathing, as well as a built in hot tub for those great michigan summer nights. There is also a half basketball court, a fire pit and of course a gas grill.
