Why Sarah Dudek chose Kalkaska

Northern Michigan and Bear Lake are the perfect vacation locales. We love this home and are happy to share our special place. This is the perfect vacation home for families or couples. You can walk right out the door to your own private beach.

Kalkaska and Grayling are both 15 minutes away from the house. Great spots to grab a bite to eat or pick up groceries and anything else you might need.

What makes this cottage unique

This home is private, right on the lake, and tucked back on a private drive with plenty of space. You will feel like you are on your own private space here.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Where to start? The cabin, the lake, the location, the owners, the neighbors ... absolutely wonderful. The description and information sent by the owners were spot on. We could not have asked for a better week away from it all. From the moment we arrived until departure, the entire family (6 yr. old, 3 yr. old, 8 month old) enjoyed its time on Bear Lake. The cabin is cozy and clean with everything one could need; linens, kitchen essentials, games, movies, toys, candles, washer/dryer. The lake is pristine, quiet, clear with beachfront and good-sized dock. The neighbors gave us a ride on their pontoon. Ordered pizza one night. Local restaurant was great. Took a day trip to Mackinaw. Nights were very quiet. We plan on returning.

Perfect spot for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the cabin with our girls and were greeted by a view through the glass doors overlooking Bear Lake. We quickly settled in and started our week of relaxation! The cabin was stocked with everything you could possibly think of, kitchen, bath, linens, and lots of games! The water was clear and shallow up to the end of the dock, which was great for our daughters to swim and splash the days away. Evenings were spent fishing off the dock, catching lots of bluegill, rock bass and small mouth, no big ones to keep, but kept everyone busy reeling in most nights.

The cabin is situated about 15 minutes away from Grayling and Kalkaska. There are great playgrounds at both sites, grocery shopping, and restaurants are also available.

We had a great time, appreciated the prompt response to questions and the open communication that we received. The cabin was great for our family and we are looking forward to renting again in the future!

Northern Michigan is a perfect place to vacation. Swimming and fishing right out of your front door. Great area for walking or cycling in the neighborhood. Plenty of trails right out back to hike. Minutes away from local tennis courts, gyms, grocery stores and restaurants. Several beautiful golf courses and award winning fly fishing on both the Ausable and Manistee Rivers. Hartwick Pines is a short drive away in Grayling. Take a tour or bring your bike and ride their trails. Or just enjoy your relaxing stay on beautiful Bear Lake.
