Property description

Hal-Sea-On House is perfectly located and can accommodate a group; the home is situated on a private road in the village of Glen Arbor and shares a private beach on Lake Michigan.

With its two living rooms, two kitchens, three-season porch and deck the home easily handles an extended family, a wedding group, or families who traditionally vacation together. The main dining area seats 14. New stainless steel appliances were installed in the main kitchen winter of 2016. For added convenience when returning from the beach, there is a fully enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold running water and a separate foot wash; the shower is located steps from the back door.

The home is located on a private road that ends at Lake Michigan providing picturesque views of the lake and Manitou islands, stunning sunsets, and a 1 minute direct walk to the private beach. During the summer season the light is visible from the South Manitou lighthouse and large freighters are often seen travelling through the Manitou passage. There are no bluffs or stairs to reach the beach; the beach is fine white sand as is the gently sloping lake bottom. (Lake Michigan is constantly changing; occasionally there may be several feet of small smooth stones at the edge of the lake.) Four kayaks and accompanying life vests are available for your enjoyment. New basketball backstop in the driveway installed spring of 2016.

Walk in the opposite direction from the lake and 3 minutes brings you into the heart of quaint Glen Arbor to enjoy locally-owned restaurants that range from casual to fine dining, organic to gourmet pizza. The new Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail is a 3 minute bike ride from your front door; bicycles can be rented in Glen Arbor. Galleries featuring local artists, specialty shops, mini golf, kayaking the lazy Crystal River, bicycle rental, tennis courts, a winery, legendary Art’s Tavern, and Cherry Republic - the world’s largest retailer of American cherry products - are all steps from your front door.

Several golf courses are within a 15 minute drive, as is downhill and cross country skiing. There are 24 wineries located throughout the Leelanau Peninsula for tours and tastings, as well as a casino (30 min), 140-year-old Leland Fishtown for fresh and smoked Lake Michigan fish and accompanying fare (20 min), a historic lighthouse at the tip of the peninsula in the Leelanau State Park (45 min), and a restored Coast Guard station and lighthouse in Glen Haven (5 min).

A 10 min. drive will bring you to marinas on Glen Lake where you can rent a boat and tour the beautiful Glen Lakes.

Festivals, celebrations and tours occur throughout the year in Glen Arbor and surrounding communities including the Empire Asparagus Festival, the Glen Arbor 4th of July Parade, the Leland Food and Wine Festival, the Lake Leelanau Blues Festival, the Glen Arbor Chili Cook-off and Perch Fishing Contest, the Empire Polar Dip, bicycle races, running events and numerous art and music events.

Glen Arbor is in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Park which provides opportunities for hiking on your own or hikes guided by the National Park Service or the Leelanau Conservancy. The National Park Service provides snow-shoe lessons and free snow-shoe rentals during the winter. Snowshoes and cross country skis and supplies are available in Glen Arbor for winter sports along the new Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail.

The 400 foot Sleeping Bear Dune is easily accessible and offers magnificent views of the bay. Visit the dune climb and climb the face of a 150 foot dune located 5 minutes from Glen Arbor.

Every season is a wonder in this National Park from the cherry blossoms and fresh produce in the spring, the miles of white sand beaches and outdoor activities in the summer, the majestic colors and festivals in the fall, and the softness and beauty of wintertime.

While all the activities and amenities in Glen Arbor are just around the corner from your front door at Hal-Sea-On House, the home’s location is secluded and away from the hustle and bustle of town. The only sounds are the waves lapping the shore, the breeze in the pines, and the laughter of guests enjoying their vacation “up north”.

And, if you’re wondering, why the funny name? It’s our version of “halcyon” which means happy, peaceful and calm.
