Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Empire, MI, USA:
Four generations of our family have enjoyed all seasons in the Glen Lake, Leelanau County area. Some of our best memories are of sharing time with family, such as listening to the waves and children's delight while sitting on the swing or watching the sun set over the sand dunes at the camp fire.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Cottage is very clean, uncluttered and comfortable. Peacefully quiet among private homes.
