Cozy 2 bedroom 1 bathroom House on Bear Lake
About Sarah Dudek
Sarah is a Northern Michigan native and Rock grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, but spent his summers vacationing in the area. When we met in NYC we knew that we would have to find a place back where our favorite summers were always spent. Now we live in the area and are happy to share our home with guests looking to enjoy what we think is the most perfect place to relax.
Sarah Dudek purchased this House in 2012
Why Sarah Dudek chose Kalkaska
Bear Lake is considered one of the clearest lakes in the state of Michigan. Pull a chair up on the new dock and catch some rays or fish. This is also the perfect place to swim or float. You will find the house conveniently located just 15 minutes from Kalkaska and Grayling, MI. We are about 45 minutes from Traverse City.
What makes this House unique
Enjoy your own private driveway and yard with 100 feet of beach and waterfront. We are one of a handful of houses on the lake that step directly out to the beach and do not require stairs.

Great, Cozy stay
We had a great time staying here. Has all the amenities you'd want, and they make the effort to make you feel welcome. Soap and shampoo, S'More materials for the kids, etc. Location is close to several up north destinations and cities.
Want this view everyday!
My husband and I stayed here with our one-year old over the summer. Sarah had lots of things for the baby - high chair, beach toys, sand box and books! It was super convenient, and the house was so cute. Sarah was very responsive throughtot and before our stay. The house was clean, the water and view of the lake were BEAUTIFUL and the area is peaceful. We can’t wait to go back!
Perfect slice of Heaven
Brought our family of 4 (kids10 &4) to the cabin on Bear Lake. The property is well maintained and furnished with everything we needed. There were books and games for adults and kids as well as a smart tv with Netflix. The WiFi was strong and allowed us to get some work done. The high water level washed out the beach, but they provided a sandbox and toys for the kids to play. The water was sandy and shallow all the way to the dock. Beds were more comfortable than anticipated. The cabin stayed cool all day and evening, even with high 80 degree days! Lots of fans provided as well. Our favorite spot was sitting in the screened in porch. We definitely recommend this cabin!! Thanks Sarah and Rock!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the lake! Such a perfect place for adults and kids to enjoy the summer. Thank you for being such great guests. We hope you will be able to visit again!
Relaxing Family Fun
We are so happy that we found this Bear Lake getaway. We are a young family with two small children that loved playing along the sandy shores of the lake. The location was quiet and the water was clear. The owners kindly set out toys for our children, making them feel welcome. The house was clean and offered great views of the water! We loved the screened in porch, it was a great place for our family meals. This is a place that we will gladly go back to each summer and enjoy making family memories.
We loved Bear Lake Escape! The location was perfect. I loved seeing the lake through the windows when we pulled in. It was very clean and had everything we needed. It was close to Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes. If you wanted to just stay close, Bear Lake is crystal clear and beautiful! Good restaurants in both Kalkaska and Grayling.
Sarah responded to questions quickly as well. We had a great time!
Great little lake cottage.
The owners go out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable experience. Great place for a quiet getaway for four people.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you so much for being such wonderful and courteous guests. We'd love to have you back any time!
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.
