Northern Michigan vacations are not about staying in one place, they are about the journey, the adventure, and the exploring. Only a 5-minute drive from Bear Lake Bed and Breakfast to enjoy the fresh water of Lake Michigan softly hitting your feet as you venture along the lakeshore hunting for Petoskey stones. Or maybe travel up M-22 to uncover the legend of the Sleeping Bear Dunes in Glen Arbor where you can climb to the highest dune and see for miles.
