Property description

Look no farther. This rental is not like others on Glen Lake. It was built as a second home on the property and is a truly great architecturally designed and comfortable home with all the amenities you would expect, year round in your own home. Located slightly to the south-east behind the main house, the home for rent is situated on the most sought after side of Big Glen with sandy bottoms and sunsets to die for. It has generous views of the lake, koi pond with waterfall, and professionally landscaped gardens. It also has 100 ft of private lake frontage with a fire pit, a dock, an anchored buoy for those that have or want to rent a boat, and a 19' trampoline tube to swim out to. The 1st floor great room has a pool table, family room with TV - stereo system - fireplace, a full kitchen, a dining area that seats 11, windows galore, and a full bathroom with shower. The 2nd floor has an additional sitting area off the 3 bedrooms with a kitchenette, a 50' plasma TV, a walk out deck, and a full bath room with a 2 person jacuzzi tub. The Master Bedroom is equipped with a TV and has a private sun deck. Wi-Fi is also available.

If you're not familiar with Glen Lake and its many surrounding attractions, you're in for something special. Just to start with, only 4 miles away (a great bike ride), Glen Arbor is a quaint, active small village nestled among tall deep green pines and fresh air breezes while situated amid the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Lakeshore Park on three incredibly beautiful bodies of water: Lake Michigan with capturing awesome views of the Manitou Islands and Pyramid Point, the exceptionally scenic Glen Lakes ranked among the most beautiful lakes in the world, and the meandering Crystal River with sparkling clear flowing waters which truly live up to the river's name, a must canoe/kayak trip. In the Village there are restaurants, galleries, design studios, boutiques, grocery stores, shopping, canoe-kayak liveries, unique clothing stores and more. A village post office, a gas station and the local 'watering hole', too. All of Leelanau County is breathtaking and boast acres and acres of Sleeping Bear Dunes spanning from the town of Empire all the way North to the town of Northport. The shopping, wineries, restaurants, sightseeing, hiking, golfing, biking, tennis, water skiing, sailing, fishing, Lake Michigan beaches, dune climbs, galleries, sunset concerts,Fall Colors, Downhill or cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and close to anything you'd be up for are endless and are the best anywhere. One of the things that is remarkable in this day and age is that the area has not been inhabited by corporate chains such as McDonands, Starbucks, Holiday Inn, etc. A true Up-North local grown paradise. Although a quick 20 mile scenic drive to Traverse City will accommodate your city needs. A trip worth taking.

Rest assured your stay will be memorable. The home for rent is available year round and very private with woods on either side of the property all the way to the water. Whether you're active or laid back, this rental is the one for you. Renters return year after year and we're sure you will to. Reserve your vacation today.
