Bear Cottage.....Return to your childhood vacation

Accommodations: Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 3-6)

Nestled on the shores of Lake Huron, Bear Cottage will rekindle childhood memories of an 'Up North' vacation. This is a 1600 square foot cottage, recently updated and professionally decorated. Each over-sized room provides an ever changing view of the big lake. The cottage has a separate lake facing living and dinning room and an additional 16x18 rear facing family room. The family room with a queen sized futon is easily converted to a third bedroom. Enjoy an early morning walk along the beach as animal friends return to their forest homes.

Additional Location Information

The property is located on Lake Huron approximately 2 miles East of US 23. Nightly the solitude of the location is interrupted by the local train as it trundles along. By its faint muffled sound you will know its 11pm.....and time to throw another log on the fire. The train is about a mile away. The local cottages are family owned with many being passed down from generation to generation. Some are old and rustic, some updated and others recently constructed. My home has been enlarged and updated in traditional notty pine fashion. Everyone is friendly. Except for the most ardent polar bears , the lake rarely warms until August.

Outdoor actives are many.

Open windows, sea breezes and a visit to the hot tub will invite restful sleep.

Should a more active day be in store, visit Loggers Trace or White Pine National golf course. Both courses are reasonably priced less than 50 dollars. The courses are both playable and of very high quality with White Pine being an all bent grass arrangement. Catch a dinner trout from nearby ponds. Bike to nearby locales on a recently repaved and widened US 23. Visit the acclaimed NOAA shipwreck or Besser museum in nearby Alpena. You could even dive these wrecks or kayak to nearby islands. Test your appetite on a 'Mountain Burger' from the nearby Mountain Inn pub. Visit Negwegon....the longest undeveloped beachfront in the Lower Peninsula. Play tennis on the nearby Harrisville municipal courts.

So......turn the cellphone off. Quiet your mind. Return to your childhood. Fully experience nature. Visit Bear Cottage.

Please note my favorite month at Bear Cottage is September. They days are still very warm but the early chill of approaching Autumn provides for excellent sleeping.

No smoking please.

Hot tub use limited to adults only.

Bedding and linens to be provided by renter
