Cozy Winter Getaway
We loved our stay at the Dancing Bear cabin! the location is beautiful, the cabin was clean and as advertised. The fireplace was amazing and added the perfect ambiance to this cozy little retreat. Bill was an excellent and communicative host and the only small issue we had regarding firewood was quickly addressed. we enjoyed winter hiking at two of the local nature preserves and Petoskey state park, and had fun exploring downtown Harbor Springs and Petoskey. We would definitely stay again.

Snowflakes of love
We had our honeymoon at the Dancing Bear Cabin and it could not have been more perfect. There was all of the cabin essentials we needed and we were blessed with a fresh snow fall. It was a wonderful time and experience.

Perfect cabin!
My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful stay in the cabin this past weekend. If you’re looking for a peaceful, relaxing weekend away this is the perfect place to unwind. The only thing missing from the cabin would be some wood for the fire place; we eventually found some after checking a couple gas stations, but it would have been nice if it were stocked.
