About Chris & Julie Jones
Our family has owned a cottage on Big Bear Lake since 1970.
Chris & Julie Jones purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Chris & Julie Jones chose Johannesburg
Big Bear is a special lake and the Johannesburg area is very appealing to us. We enjoy being away from it all and still have access to so many activities throughout the year as well as great places to eat.
What makes this Cottage unique
Big Bear Lake is a 350 acre all sports lake containing a variety of fish (Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Rock Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Sunfish, Walleye and Yellow Perch) and home to interesting wildlife (Loons, Ducks, Turtles, etc). Perfect size lake for all boating activities. The Birchwood property is located on a 5 acre wooded lot with extra space for trailer parking.

Great stay! We visit up north yearly for our family snowmobile trip. This was a great location. The trails were very close, we had access to ride on the lake and our friends were even able to ice fish. We also found some great hills to take the kids sledding. The house had everything we could need. There was a fully stocked kitchen, a pool table to entertain us at night and good WiFi service. The owners were great with communication and always responded. We enjoyed our stay very much!
Annual hunting trip
Once again it filled all our needs and everyone had a great time. Can't wait for next year.
This property was just as pictured. Has plenty of space for a large party and everything you would need for a weekend or week away. The colors were changing when we were here so the lake was just gorgeous with the fall foliage. It is nice and secluded. You can barely see the houses next to it, and we didn't see anyone the whole time. We unfortunately had rain so we couldn't make use of the firepit or canoe or pedal boat. Thank goodness for the wood burning fireplace inside! It was cold! Love that there is Netflix and the like for streaming. Pool table is a nice addition as well. Two full bathrooms is a huge plus. Loved cooking in the kitchen with the beautiful view of the lake as well. Nice hot showers, despite mineral smell, but you'll get that with well water, so no biggie. We drove an hour into Petoskey where we also enjoyed a day there. Husband loved the rustic, woodsy cabin feel of the this place. Would definitely recommend! Owners were great about answering my beforehand questions also and check in was a breeze! Thanks for opening your beautiful home!
Excellent Place to Stay!
Everything was to our liking and the surrounding area had plenty to do!
Beautiful location and property! Plenty of room for our family! We drove around in the evening and were able to see some wild elk after looking at the DNR maps! It was amazing!
