"We had a very nice time staying in this condo. The location is perfect - less than 100ft to the beach and walking distance to Glen Arbor. The unit was very clean and well stocked. We had a great stay and will definitely be coming back in the future. The owners are terrific and clearly want their guests (renters) to have a good experience. I would recommend with no qualifications."

"The Little Red Boat House has to be the cutest and cleanest rental ever. The property looks out onto the lake which is incredibly serene. It is more than adequately furnished. Everywhere you look you find charming details. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay with hopes to return."

"I would recommend this property for any family looking to stay in the Empire / Glen Arbor area. The property is very clean, well maintained and up to date with very nice furniture and fixtures. This property truly felt like our own home and the entire family felt comfortable here. It has every amenity you would want or look for and it is kept very clean, like your own home.
The property is close to the local Empire beach, which is great for children and a relaxing day outside. It is a short drive up M-22 to Sleeping Bear National Park, which includes the scenic drive and dune climb. It is a short drive to Glen Arbor where there is more shopping and many restaurants to choose from. Traverse City is only about 20-25 minutes away. This really was a great location to set as your jumping off point and return point for all things in this area.
The only issues I would recommend for the owner is to put up some shades or drapes over the living room windows for some privacy and temperature control and key the front and back door to the same key to make it possible to enter and leave from either the front or rear door. Otherwise, this house is absolutely perfect."

Most immaculate property we have ever rented! Honestly advertised. This is a wonderful home!
"Our family has rented many vacation properties, some came as advertised, others were rather unpleasant surprises. Uncle Warren's is by far the cleanest, most guest friendly home we have ever rented. The owners have thought of everything from the wall mounted blow dryer in the bathroom to the carefully labeled drawers and light switches, they have bent over backwards to make sure that each guest feels completely at home and doesn't waste precious vacation time looking for things. They also have an endless water heater so you won't run out of water no matter how many showers and Jacuzzi's the family takes. We have stayed here twice, the first time was great, but this time we could tell that improvements had been made. A new couch and chair and flat screen tv made the living room even nicer than before. The washer and dryer are an added bonus. They also provide plenty of magazines with information about all the things to do in the area and a generous welcome gift of locally made candy, soda, coffee and wine. This house is 1/2 a block from Cherry Republic and just a block farther to Art's Tavern and the center of town. We walked everywhere and only used the car to go to the Pierce Stocking Drive and Leland. If you want to be in the heart of Glen Arbor, this truly is a wonderful place to enjoy as the home base for an unforgettable family vacation. The best part was that we didn't have to leave our pup at home. He loved Uncle Warren's and Glen Arbor as much as we did."
