Tucked in the woods on Shetland Creek near a quiet private residence. 'Creekside' is just down the road from Glen Arbor, Leland and Sleeping Bear National Park.

Great place to stay, well equipped and well maintained. Good base location for a number of day trips we took. Would have no reservation to stay again at Creekside.

Great location, extremely clean

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here last week for 4 nights. It contains all the amenities you need for your visit. It is very clean inside and out and close to many attractions in the area. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the area. We also appreciated that it was pet friendly.

Cozy Place

  • 5 of 5

Great, cozy place to stay. It is well maintained and has all you need. It's in driving range to all the great wineries, downtown Traverse, and the sand dunes. Yet, at the end of the day you can relax in peace.

The perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We were able to book Creekside as a last minute extension to our trip and so glad we did! The location is quiet but easy to find and right in the middle of everything we wanted to do. The house was very clean and roomy for the two of us, we wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the grill and firepit!

Home away from home for our family of five

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the creekside cottage was wonderful. It was clean and cozy and we had everything we needed. We enjoyed roasting marshmallows in the fire ring and the bbq was great for grilling dinner. This is our second time staying here and we look forward to coming back every summer. Thank you Ed & Dawn for such a beautiful place to stay at on our summer family vacation's.

Family Vacation for Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at Creekside for a Sleeping Bear Dunes getaway. It was a last minute trip we planned to surprise our kids, 9 and 7. The guest house was clean, cozy and we were able to bring our dog. The upstairs living area was so welcoming. The kids had their own room that they shared and my husband and I were right next to them. We played a game of Monopoly that lasted the four days (the 9 year old beat us pretty good!). At night you could open the balcony door and hear Shetland creek. Very relaxing.

We cooked our own meals and ate at the dinning table. It was nice to have the kitchen and dining room close. The decor of the kitchen made us excited for the summer to come. The kitchen had all the kitchen tools needed for a home cooked meal.

There is a fire ring in the front and we had two fires at night for s'mores.

We would highly, highly recommend staying at Ed and Dawn's place for anyone who wants to go to the Dunes or just to get away.

Thank you for sharing your guest house with us!!!!
