Perfect location, impecabbly maintained, gorgeous views, and comfort with all the amenities.
"My husband and I visited Glenbear cottage with our 12 and 5 year-old sons and had a wonderful experience. The property is even better in person than the pictures show. The wooded area and gorgeous pine trees provide peace and privacy with the serenity of Glen Lake, yet you are a short drive from shops, restaurants, bicycling, Lake Michigan and, of course, the Dunes. The interior of the home is VERY clean, with newer, comfortable furnishings. It's a perfect mix of a cabin feel with modern furnishings and amenities. We grilled out, roasted marshmallows, cooked breakfast and enjoyed the deck, beach and dock areas. Our five-year-old loved playing in the sand on the beach. The beds were comfortable and the two bathrooms made it very convenient for our family of four. My husband and I loved hanging out in the sunroom while the boys played outside or in the living room. Since we were new to the area, the info and recommendations the owners provided made our stay more enjoyable (especially the tucked-away breakfast joint). We rented a boat a couple of days and enjoyed the Caribbean-like waters of Glen Lake. We also rented bikes and cycled through the beautiful forest to the Dunes and back to Glen Arbor. Our family really looks forward to our summer vacations and we are very picky about the accommodations we choose. Glenbear cottage met all of our expectations and then some. I cannot rave enough about this property and the area itself. The owners are responsive and extremely helpful. Their pride of ownership and attention to detail made our stay delightful. We will most certainly be back. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We have great memories."

"South Seas had everything! The kitchen was the best stocked of any rental house in which we have ever stayed. The dishes and glassware were extra nice; with more flatware than you could ever need. The bed was extremely comfortable; the master bathroom and closet were spacious. The house was clean, well maintained, the furniture was comfortable, the decor beautiful, and the location of Emerald Shores is central to everything. Booking was easy and convenient. Everything about the house was perfect, which is why we will be back next year! It's just a shame there were only two of us to enjoy that big, lovely house!"

"We enjoyed a weeks stay here following Christmas this year. We made a last minute decision to travel from NC for this week and don't regret staying here one bit. The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with. The location was perfect for exploring the island of Anna Maria. Walking distance to breakfast spots and chain restaurants were a quick trip by car. I would recommend for a week or a couple months. Very nice pool area and screened porch to sit on."
