              Location

              You'll simply love our Beach House location . . . It truly is the perfect spot: On the beach (Lake Michigan), on a private road, in the forest and in town (Glen Arbor). Walk down the beach to Blu (The Restaurant & Bar) to watch sunset or walk/ride to town for many options, the National Lakeshore or any one of a hundred 'bucket list' sites in and around the area. Our favorite is the riding The Heritage Trail through the National Lakeshore for a family bike ride . . . or to the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes for a 'dune climb' and/or picnic.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: We fell in love with Glen Arbor and the Sleeping Bear Bay beachfront on Lake Michigan during our first family vacation in the area in 1995. We purchased a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo on that vacation and purchased this fabulous, four bedroom beach house in May, 2012.

              Why the Owner Chose Glen Arbor:
              Lake Michigan beach front, views of the big lake, the Manitou Islands, sunsets, beach fires and a comfy, beachy home to accomodate friends and family. Sleep well and stay cool in our air conditioning when we have those occassional hot, humid summer days and nights.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Sunsets, beach walks, beach fires, swimming, kayaking, hiking, biking, 5 minute walk to downtown Glen Arbor, easy access to The Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail and National Park, day trips to Leland, Suttons Bay, Empire, Traverse City.
