Glen Arbor house description

The property offers a great rustic vacation experience on Big Glen Lake. Designed by Tom Halberg and built by Kieft and Dorsey in 1969, this wooded lakeshore A Frame with a bedroom wing was designed as a cottage in the woods with open vistas to a private sand beach and lake beyond. A large wrap-arround deck provides access from each room. Clear clean water provides shallow areas perfect for children to play close to home. The cottage provides a maximum of 8 persons with 3 bedrooms and a loft. Dining area seats 8. The kitchen has the usual large and small appliances for meal preparation. A complete laundry room with sink comes in handy. The front patio and lake deck offer places to relax and watch and listen to the wildlife. Easterly offshore breezes offer comfortable conditions on cooler days and Westerly breezes cool on hotter days. For panoramic views and magnificent sunsets you just can't beat this spot. It's hard to leave the beach when the dinner bell rings.
