We arrived to the hotel after midnight, so the owner left the lights on in our room so we could easily find it and go right in and hit the hay! You really feel like you're in the forest and each of the trees in the rooms have been made by hand - leaf by leaf. Continental breakfast is available... More

We wish we had had the time to stay a week. Great location, charming rooms, attentive hostess, & modest cost. We look forward to returning there more than a few times in 2017. It's located at the end of the town & is therefore very quiet.

Third visit to the economical and beautiful themed cabin style rooms..technically Evergreen Shores..about 2 miles north of St Ignace proper. Pass up the chain hotels in Mackinaw for real UP experience with friendly hosts. Quiet walk to the beach for bonfire and a drink. Great times.

We had the pleasure of staying in this motel July 31 2016. We stayed in the King room and it was just adorably decorated and the bed was so comfortable. It is at the end of the business loop but well worth the extra drive. The owner was not only incredibly helpful but so nice. All my friends who are... More

The Bear Cove Inn was such a wonderful place, we stayed in the fishing room and words cannot express enough how cool this place is. We can't wait to go back and try some of the other rooms. It was only a weekend trip but was a trip to remember.

Super friendly staff and a great value. My husband does the Pt Huron to Mackinac race and the boys and I always stay here before meeting him on the island. The themed rooms are amazing and the hotel is situated far enough from the rest of the business down the street to be quiet but convenient.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bear Cove Inn. A small hotel, with forest-themed rooms, we loved the "Waterfall Room". The room and bath were very clean, the bed comfortable and the bathroom had nice amenities. The room had a microwave and frig. We enjoyed talking to the owners during our two days there. Breakfast was good, with freshly... More

The staff is extremely friendly. The price was very reasonable. The "fisherman" themed room was cozy. There was an in-room microwave and fridge which was great. There is no closet but that was OK as there were hooks on the wall. The bathroom did not have a vent so the aroma was a little overpowering at times. I'd stay here... More
