Property description

SINGING MOON LODGE and LITTLE BEAR COTTAGE together welcome up to 12 guests. The 2 separate cottages were built side-by-side with a common wall, so that they can be independent or opened into a single large cottage. SINGING MOON (welcomes 8 guests) is an updated version of the Old Michigan cabin experience, with rustic Canadian pine beam construction and open floor plan with 1BR+2 loft BRs/2Bth. LITTLE BEAR (welcomes 4 guests) is a traditional ranch-style home with 2 BR/1Bth. Either are perfect for-- morning coffee while viewing the Dunes and turquoise waters of Little Glen Lake, sing-alongs at the piano, rest after a full day of swimming, water-skiing (boat and equipment rentals a short walk away), kayaking, canoeing, hiking, biking, golfing, antiquing, wine tasting, birding, beach combing and autumn leaf watching----your home base for exploring the National Lakeshore, Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Park, Glen Arbor, Empire, and the Leelanau Penninsula.

Set sail in 'The Loft'--- Expansive open sleeping decks with a sky-lit bath (sunken tub, walk-in shower, bidet, toilet, lavatory) and an additional lavatory/vanity area. 1 queen bed (wake up each morning to lakeviews) on the upper deck, 1 double bed and 1 double futon on the lower deck.
'Glenda's Room'--- View her namesake from the 1st floor queen bed, decorated with a nod to Michigan's golden age of Victorian tourism. The full bath (shower stall) is a few steps away.
Singing Moon's open floor plan includes a piano nook, wet bar area, chef's kitchen, dining area and sunken living room with direct Lake and Dune views.

AMENITIES: Fully equipped kitchen, coffeemaker, microwave, dishwasher, VCR/DVD player, cable TV, phone with 800-acess long distance, washer/dryer, sprawling docks, 325 feet of lake shore, boat moorings, community campfire, the commons (a large yard perfect for kick-ball games!), the enchanting Dunes reflected in the turquoise crystal of sand bottom Little Glen Lake.

You will bring bed linens, kitchen linens and towels, paper goods. (Pillows, comforter and blankets are provided).

ACTIVITIES: There is something for everyone-For 'Tourists' Glen Arbor and nearby Leland, Northport and Sutton's Bay have great shopping and restaurants. Leelanau is dotted with wineries offering tours and tastings. Interlochen's concert schedule may fit your bill. For those seeking 'battery recharge', sit awhile on the dock, spread a blanket on Empire beach for the sunset, or curl up with a good book. For 'Info-seekers', the Leelanau School's and the Homestead's community programs for all ages will interest you. For 'Adventurers', the National Park trails lead to grand views of Lake Michigan. Kayaking, canoeing, boating, biking, fishing opportunities abound, with equipment rentals nearby. Golfers can enjoy a number of nearby courses. If anyone suffers urban withdrawal, Traverse City is 35 mins away, with a Zoo, museums, huge mall and many rainy-day options. While our list could go on, keep in mind that the best thing to do at Glen Lake is nothing at all!

We have fallen in love with this beautiful area of our great country and are eager to share its wonders with others, especially children--- your heart will delight as they scramble up the mountainous Dunes and splash in the warm, clear, shallow water of Little Glen. As happened to us, this may become your family's annual Summer spot! The enchanting Dunes change color with every atmospheric change and reflect in the turquoise crystal waters of Little Glen. If you happen to visit during a full Moon, you may even hear it sing! After a day or so in the area, you will understand why this area is such a special place in Native American lore and living. What makes this place different from other geographic wonders we've visited is its family friendly accessibility. The Lake is warm and shallow-- inviting especially to young children-- and the Dunes are open to climbers of all ages.
