Step away from the busy city and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where time seems to have stood still. Bear Cottage at Brevort Lake offers days of simple, comfortable living to renew your spirit. The combination of quiet lake life and local entertainment provides wonderful opportunities to unwind, regenerate and create family memories.
Brevort Lake is a pristine, spring-fed lake that welcomes swimmers, boaters, fishermen and water-lovers. It's the sixth largest lake in the Upper Pensinsula, and 80% of the shoreline is federal or state forest. The result is a truly 'Northern' escape that will become part of your family history and your soul.
Adventure around the lake in your canoe or kayak, seeing wildlife along the shore. Take the kids by short boat ride or hike along the shore to climb the sand dune. Test your skill at catching walleye, perch and Northern Pike.
Take a variety of day trips, to nearby St. Ignace, to Grand Hotel and the fort on Mackinac Island, Tahquamenon Falls or Sault Ste. Marie and the Soo Locks. Tryyour luck at Kewadin Casino. Enjoy a day full of activity, then watch the sunset from Bear Cottage while you grill dinner on the beach.
After dark around the campfire, the Universe will take your breath away with galaxies, planets and constellations stretching across the sky. If you're lucky, you'll experience the thrill of shooting stars or the mesmerizing beauty of the Northern Lights.
Some days or evenings, you may prefer to nestle indoors with board games, cards, books or satellite TV.
And you will be amazed how deeply you can sleep in Nature's quiet.
Play hard all day, sleep deeply all night!
