Your very own lakefront sanctuary, all for a fraction of the price.​

Many people find they only spend at least four to six weeks at their vacation home every year. Why not only pay for the time you will actually use the property?


Imagine having your own private sanctuary with luxurious amenities and sweeping views of Lake Michigan, all for a fraction of the price of a typical vacation home. That’s the secret – LeBear is anything but typical.


LeBear Resort is a Private Residence Club (PRC) that offers opportunities for affordable fractional ownership and rentals. As an owner, you’ll retain one-eighth undivided deeded interest in a fully-furnished residence, which can be sold, exchanged, or placed in a trust.

Fractional ownership is a method in which several unrelated parties can share in the ownership of a LeBear residence. One of the main motivators for a fractional purchase is the ability to share the costs of maintaining a residence that will not be used full-time by one owner.

The main distinction between timeshare and fractional ownership is that with a timeshare you buy the right to use a property, but with fractional ownership, you are buying real estate. You get a deeded piece of your LeBear residence, just not for the entire property.

Fractional ownership divides a property into more affordable segments for individuals and also matches an individual's ownership time to their actual usage time. A one-eighth fractional share gives the owners certain privileges, including six weeks each year when they can use the property.

A key aspect for any fractional owner is to understand their usage rights and the reservation plans. If you are interested in owning a residence at LeBear, please reach out to us with any questions.
