We were extremely surprised by how great this resort is. The spaciousness and amenities in the unit were first class with an incredible water view. We enjoyed watching the eagles from the wide expanse of living room windows. The room is very lovely and comfortable with fireplace, plenty of seating and open to the large gourmet kitchen. Our unit also... More

From the second of pulling into the courtyard, the staff was extremely friendly and willing to help from loading our luggage to answering any questions we had. The grounds were kept up like nowhere else I have ever stayed. From the ground floor up to our extremely spacious and breathtakingly beautiful condo the upkeep was admiral. Oh by the way,... More

I surprised my husband with a stay at LeBear as a gift for his 40th birthday and I can honestly say it was the most incredible weekend trip we've ever had. The resort was gorgeous, the staff exceptional and the views - AH-mazing. (Unfortunately, I think I'm now completely spoiled.) Every detail was attended to - including a "sweet" surprise... More

LeBear is truly in a class of it's own. It is an incredible vacation experience. It boasts of beachfront, pools, sauna, hot tub, steam showers, game room, workout room and much more. Just one visit and we were hooked.

You may not think that being in Glen Arbor can get any better, that is until you stay at LeBear. We were SO happy with the incredible condo for the week; well worth the splurge. It was like a home away from home, except better....stainless high-end kitchen, warm wood floors and beautiful lighting throughout, walk-in steam shower...I could go on... More

LeBear enjoys a perfect location, a short walk to the heart of the commercial area with shops, restaurants and everything the city of Glen Arbor Michigan has to offer and also with perfect location on a gorgeous beach of pristine Lake Michigan with beautiful views of the Manitou islands and Bear Dunes National Park. Tons of nearby outdoor recreation. Meticulously... More

LeBear offers the most luxurious accomodations and guest services in the most beautiful spot in America - Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. I've captured the most dazzling sunset pictures from our porch overlooking Lake Michigan each of the 3 times we've stayed here. Lots to do in the area - boating, wineries, biking, hiking. Can't wait to return!

This is the nicest resort I have ever stayed in. Better than a Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton!! Very luxurious, large (2,200-2,500sf) condos directly on Lake Michigan with both an indoor and outdoor pool!! - both heated. Bonfires on the beach, a fantastic restaurant attached and you can walk to the downtown which includes a great grocery store. Cook in... More
