Property description

The 'Beach House' on Little Glen Lake was built in the early 20's as part of the old 'Oasis Resort', one of the early resorts that used to operate around the lake. Originally a boathouse, It was converted to a cottage sometime in the late 30's. In 1996 we completely gutted the original building and rebuilt it as a private guest cottage. Surrounded by extensive decks and a shaded private outdoor dining area the cottage sits on a very private setting on the north shore of Little Glen Lake with spectacular views of the surrounding hills, the Sleeping Bear Dunes, and fabulous sunsets.

The water is crystal clear with a sandy bottom and is excellent for swimming and is especially nice for small children as it is shallow for over 100' out. You have your own private dock, and a dedicated mooring is available should you bring your own boat.

The south facing deck in front of the cottage has both chaise lounges and adirondack chairs and is perfect for reading, getting a tan or enjoying a beverage. A canoe and 2 kayaks are available for your use. After dark enjoy a fire and smores in your own private firepit.

Keywords: beach front, private,great views, dunes and sunset views.
