About Jamie Beach
Ever since we married in 2009, my wife and I have had a dream of owning an 'up north' lake house. We made that dream a reality in 2017. We love vacationing up north and this house is perfect for our large extended families. With young kids we look forward to years of memories on Little Bear Lake. We are happy to continue the tradition of this home by opening our doors to other families to enjoy as well. We are confident you will love this home as much as we do. You will find the home well appointed with all the comforts you would expect from a resort. The kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you will need to cook for the whole family. The 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms will allow the family to have their own space. The water is only steps from the house so you can watch the little ones from the full length deck or next level down as you sit in the sand around the fire pit or play a game of horse shoes. The kids will love the sandy bottom of the lake and the 100 feet of lake front. Hours will be spent jumping off the private dock and playing on the swimming platform. Adults and kids alike will enjoy the paddle boat and 4 kayaks. You wont get views like this anywhere else, but Little Bear Lake. One of the cleanest lakes in Michigan with crystal clear water with water colors from deep blue to turquoise. If you love nature you will love spending hours sitting on the deck watching the Baltimore Orioles and Grosbeak birds coming to eat out of the feeders. You can watch the squirrels and chipmunks running around or the ducks and geese on the lake. On occasion you will see the bald eagle circling from above. For those rainy days the kids can escape to the game room for air hockey, foosball and a Nintendo Wii U game console. Help yourself to all the board games and DVDs at the house. If you are looking for adventures there are tons of opportunities in the area for day trips. You can hike, bike, kayak, shop, fish, ride ATV or snowmobiles and much more.
Jamie Beach purchased this House in 2017
Why Jamie Beach chose Johannesburg
We chose to purchase this property because we rented it for a week 3 years ago and fell in love with the house, the water and the area. It's close to Gaylord and Lewiston and only a day trip from the big waters of the Great Lakes, Petoskey, or Mackinaw City. We hope you love the house as much as we do
What makes this House unique
We come from a perspective of hospitality. Having worked for 10 years in the hospitality industry managing hotels, hospitality is at the heart of what we do. The views from the house are truly unique. There is no other lake that gives you the color tones that Little Bear Lake does. Make sure to take the photo op with our own 'Little Bear' and share pictures with us.

Great fun for the whole family
We had a great time at Little Bear Lake. The cottage is really nice and well stocked with game broads, water toys, fire pit, etc. We had a wonderful time.
Thank you for the great review Tom. I welcome you and your group back anytime.
We had a wonderful week!
Our family of 11 gathered from 3 states to enjoy a wonderful week on Little Bear Lake. There were a few hiccups, but the weather was spectacular, the lake was crystal clear and the fish were caught! We enjoyed this property, it allowed us to really spread out and had just about everything we needed. If you are looking for a quiet lake house with a great waterfront, this is your house. From early morning walks on the quiet road to late night fires with s'mores, we had full days of family fun. Great communication with the owner. Thank you for sharing!
We love reading reviews like this. One of the best things about the house is the ability to accommodate many people which means extended families are able to come together to make wonderful memories. Thanks for allowing us to work through the hiccups and get them resolved quickly for you. You are welcome back anytime.
Family fun place
Nice house with great porch. You can enter the lake right from the property which has a sandy bottom or you can enter from the dock. Gaylord is very easy to get to from the house. If you are a golfer, they have several reasonably priced and very nice courses with a 30 min drive. Definitely a place I would recommend.
Thank you for choosing to stay at Little Bear Lake Hideaway. We appreciate the recommendation and hope to see you and your family again.
