Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We have been vacationing in the Pier Port area since 1967. We have some family in the area.

Why the Owner Chose Bear Lake, MI, USA:
There is very little traffic on the road near the house, very quiet, short walk to Lake Michigan. If you get up early, you will have a chance to see deer, and wild turkeys. You are a short distance from Manistee, Frankfort, Traverse City. with plenty of things to do in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Near Lake Michigan, Quiet, nicely appointed house, feels like home
