Was It Bigfoot?

I used to spend time with Grandparents at their lake house in the UP of Mich. This was late 70s and before I had ever heard of a Bigfoot. I was sleeping one night with cousin as he was also visiting when I awoke to something pulling down our covers. I was startled but figured that my cousin had kicked them down. I pulled them back up but as I was drifting back to sleep I realized that there was a strong nasty stink. I pulled hard to pull the covers up over my head and started hitting cousin. I couldn't awake him and then I felt the covers get yanked down to my ankles again . I was so scared to open my eyes but I did peek. I saw a small hairy man. It looked right at me and I found voice. I started screaming and beating my cousin to wake up. My grandfather came in in a panic and cousin was dazed. I tried to tell them but they told me I was only dreaming. As hard as I tried I couldn't sleep again that night and would never sleep in that room again. In fact, I would make my grandmother sleep with for years after when I visited. They always said it was a dream but I did hear my grandfather saying the next morning how bad it stunk in our room when he came in.
Later I saw stuff about Bigfoot and read several things from the library about him (before Internet and cable tv) the more I read, the more I have come to believe that it was a adolescent Bigfoot.
