Located on the 'third most beautiful lake in the world' --according to National Geographic Magazine! Completely renovated during the summer of 2015. Everything from top to bottom is new: roof, siding, windows, flooring, kitchen cabinets, countertops, beds, mattresses, comforters, bathrooms...everything! This A-frame chalet has direct, private frontage on Little Glen Lake and is located less than 5 minutes from the Village of Glen Arbor. Glen Lake's famous sandy bottom stays shallow for a long distance, making it the ideal lake for small children. The North Shore of Little Glen is kissed by sunshine all day and showcases breathtaking sunsets over the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes each night. Also visible from this location is the familiar Glen Lake Narrows Bridge. This mid-sized chalet is perfect for family fun or "just getting away from it all." There is a deck for private picnicking with plenty of seating for everyone, and a charcoal grill. A dock is available for you to bring your own water toys or you can rent a pontoon boat and enjoy a lazy day on the water! Do you have a larger group and want to be next to each other? No problem! Mama Bear chalet is located right next door (VRBO/HomeAway#4087809). Completely renovated in 2015 as well, this smaller A-frame chalet sleeps 5. Rent both and make memories you will cherish for a lifetime! During your stay you will want to take advantage of all the Glen Arbor village amenities: dining, art galleries, shopping, boat rentals, kayak and bike rentals, fresh farm markets, golf courses, a gym and more. Just outside the village you can enjoy the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Pierce Stocking Dr., voted best vacation destination in 2011! Nearby towns include Glen Haven, the Village of Empire, Leland, Traverse City, and Suttons Bay. Take a day trip and enjoy one of the many summer festivals, including the nationally recognized Cherry Festival (early July), and the Traverse City Film Festival (late July). There are wineries throughout Leelanau County and the Old Mission Peninsula, as well as local breweries and dozens of amazing eateries. Don't forget to take the famous "M-22 Scenic Highway". Whatever direction you head, you're in for spectacular scenery and a great adventure! Once you're done for the day, relax by the campfire and enjoy s'mores as you take in the beautiful Glen Lake sunsets. This truly amazing vacation destination is waiting just for you!

Baby Bear was the perfect getaway we needed! We visited Traverse City last year, which was our first visit to MI. We decided this time to look for a cabin on the shoreline of one of the many gorgeous lakes throughout Michigan. The house was quaint , clean and the PERFECT setting so close to Glen Lake. We couldn’t ask for a more perfect setting for our much needed getaway. The only thing I regret is that we couldn’t get it for longer than we did. The sandy Beach area and the fire pit , a picnic table, the lounge chairs and BBQ made cooking and eating convenient and the view a plus. S’mores every night lake side by the fire pit watching the sunset and listening to the water. The book that is in the cabin is very helpful if you’ve not been to the area of Empire and Glen Arbour. We ventured out to Elk Rapids, just north of Traverse City. We found a very secluded conservation area off of the road side that had maintained wooden steps down to an amazing beach! There was no one there, we brought our lunch and looked for Petoskey Stones all day (with success!!). We would definitely return to this property for any future trips or recommend it to anyone who asks us.

We had a great time at Baby Bear. It had everything we needed in a perfect location. We’d like to come back next year with more family and rent both Baby and Mama Bear cottages. The lake is shallow and sandy, the dock is nice, and it’s a beautiful shady spot. The cottage is small, especially the bathroom, but it’s very well-appointed and easy to live in. We had a great week!

Quaint and comfortable cabin right on an inviting lake. The lake was an opportunity for all of to unplug and focus on the relaxing natural beauty that surrounds the cabin. The lake is terrific for kayaking and paddle boarding. The shallow depth keeps the water warmer. It’s shallow for nearly a 100 yards out which makes it easy and safe for you g kids to play. The town of Glen Arbor is only a few short minutes away for groceries and other commercial outings. We enjoyed several hiking trails and the heritage bike trail. Truly a magical stay.

Loved the lake views, outside spaces and dock. We rented a pontoon boat from a marina we could walk to from the cottages, floated on tubes and brought our kayaks. Lake is shallow and was fun for young kids. Cottages were well stocked.

Nice view and comfortable cabin Everything was really nice. We had crappy weather but the fireplace helped take the dampness out and made the stay much nicer. Driveway is a little difficult to find as the address is not separately listed.
