Why the Owner Chose Glen Arbor, MI, USA:
We have been coming up to Glen Arbor for years and kept looking for that perfect place for our second home. The place we envisioned just didn't seem to exist so we finally built it! Based on the floor plans of great resorts that we have stayed at, Bearberry House allows for all guests to have their own space (and bathroom) as well as ample inside and outside areas for everyone to gather together. We planned for good - and not so good - weather by having a large screened-in porch as well as an even larger two-tiered deck - both with seating for everyone. Our location is quiet enough to see and hear the wildlife, yet close enough to be able to walk to the grocery store ... and pretty much everything else in town!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walkable to everything in Glen Arbor: Shops, Galleries, Cherry Republic, Crystal River Kayaking, Glen Arbor Park and Tennis Courts, Art's Tavern, Western Avenue Grill, Boonedocks, Blu, Lake Michigan Beach, Alligator Hill Hiking/X-country Ski trails, biking, hiking and more!
