                                                        Sue from WIWisconsin

                                                        We were at Glen Lake Cottages in August, continuing a family tradition of many years. This year the bike/walking path between Empire and Glen Arbor was up and available, right across the road and easily accessible. We hope next year to get three generations together as one of the little ones who has grown up vacationing here now has a little one of her own.

                                                        Great vacation, comfortable lodging and a beautiful place.

                                                        We loved our stay here. It is a great place for a family vacation and the water is excellent for our young kids. I'd recommend this for anyone who wants a cottage vacation!!
