“Staying at the Bear Cove Inn is like staying with family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2009

Greatest people we ever stayed with on vacation. Very unique rooms, that are cozy and creative. Love the breakfast in the morning. Service is always the greatest just like last year when we came. I usually like to try new things and places but I have never felt so comfortable and Welcome anywhere else. We recomend everyone we know and guarantee satisfaction at the Bear Cove Inn. We appreciate your hospitality, and will definetly see you again shortly!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bear Cove Inn. It was an enjoyable experience all the way around. Our room was beautiful and so unique! Everything was extremely clean and so comfortable. Bob and Elaine were great hosts and helped us find some really fun places to visit. If we ever come this way again, we aren't looking anywhere else to stay and plan to recommed the Bear Cove Inn to all our friends and family.

You gotta stay here to believe this place! The hosts have done the most magnificent job decorating this place, the handcrafted wood touches are fabulous.

Booking could be made easier with an online booking system, but my mum was able to call and make the reservation with no problems. Would be difficult for me, being overseas, to do this. Check in was fun, with the very friendly and chatty hosts welcoming us warmly.

We stayed in the Fishing room, which was quaint and comfortable. It was nice and quiet in the hotel, and we had a good night's rest on comfy beds. The hosts were very helpful with information on local dining and attractions.

The breakfast in the morning is very good, with lots of options served up with friendly conversation.

Would recommend this place to anyone looking for an interesting and charming local experience. You won't be disappointed.

On our 5 days of snowmobiling in the UP, the Bear Cove Inn was one of our many stops. Had we known how comfortable the beds, accommodations, and hospitality were going to be, we would have considered rearranging our schedule to stay in St. Ignace longer. We enjoyed both the Tree House Suite and the King Suite at the Inn. The decor is so unique and brings the outdoors in. We love nature and enjoying the outdoors so the themed rooms fit perfectly into what we were looking for. The hosts of this establishment couldn't have been more informative, engaging, and kind. We were greeted on the snowmobile trail, escorted to the Inn, and treated to superb hospitality. The breakfast that was offered was more than continental with various breads, cereals, fruits, and beverages. Due to our 1 night stay while snowmobiling, we are extending our sled trip next year and planning an ATV trip in the Summer! Looking forward to new adventures while staying at a comfortable location!

Our stay at the Bear Cove Inn was unforgettable! It was my parents' 72nd wedding anniversary. When we arrived, Elaine and Bob (the owners) had a surprise waiting for them. On the table in their room was a gift of chocolates and sparkling non-alcoholic wine with a beautiful card wishing them well. We were speechless. This would never happen in a "normal" hotel. Our whole experience there was like coming home. Beds were comfortable and our hosts were welcoming.

I recently stayed at Bear Cove Inn. The hospitality was great. The rooms were phenominal!!! They were very unique and cozy. I have never seen such fun designs in a hotel room. I would highly reccomend this hotel to anyone. The casino's are very close and convenient.

We arrived early and was able to check in, the hosts were very gracious and accomodating. The rooms were very large, and had all the comforts of home. The price very affordable and the closest place to stay near the casino. Shuttle service to the casino was easy to arrange to save on our own gas costs.
The breakfast nook was very cozy and and clean. You can pay more, but you will not get the amazing service that this Inn gives you and yours!
We have already booked for next years trip upnorth, this is the best secret in saint ignace and we are looking forward to going again.
