We go to Powderhorn every year, and we were so thankful to be able to rent Bear Necessities - only wish we could get it again!

“Heaven in the Snow”
Reviewed March 19, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I have rented this condo for many years and found it to be the best lodging at Big Powderhorn in Bessemer, MI. This is a beautiful Ski In Ski Out Condo which sleeps ten women very comfortably. Would not stay anywhere else!

Liked best: location on the hill and size and lay out of condo
Liked least: it has an in-door hot tub and i would rather have an out-door hot tub
