About Nancy Miller

Hello To all of you fun seeking folks. As a child My family came to this area as renters just like you.

After college I decided to relocate up North and build my own house. This is it. My creative process.

It's a great home. I lived in it for some years and now built an studio Apartment above the garage so I can rent the big house out to you wonderful

People.

Why Nancy Miller chose Sleeping Bear Dunes

It is cosy and close to all the Lakes and Fun things to do up North. When you get done and need a break you have privacy and all the things you need in this house

What makes this house unique

Peaceful home in a Natural Setting.

Would not return

  • 2 of 5

As VRBO would not allow my honest review to be published, here is my condensed version. Nancy is not responsive. Yes, it says she responds within a day but assure me, when you are trying to plan a trip, proper response time is appreciated. I received no contract to sign, no receipt of payment (except cancelled check), no check-in, check-out instructions. I only got a response late evening the night before we planned to leave regarding check-in time. The property is older and very basic. TV did not work one night of our 2 night stay until Nancy came over to call DirectTV. My friend and I both got bug bites (not bed bugs) from the home. Nancy damaged my car on the property and while offering to fix it through insurance, did not reimburse us for our stay as most establishments would. I do not recommend.

Beautiful Glen Arbor cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a 4 day weekend with 6 friends at Nancy's lovely place. The house has a wonderful ambience, is clean and has comfortable furniture. It has a great community area where we spent many hours gathering together and sharing food that we had prepared in a well equipped kitchen. There are also many places around the house where you can find a spot to have some quiet time by yourself. The area has many opportunities for a variety of fun filled activities, swimming, hiking

, kayaking and much more.

Nancy is a gracious hostess always available to answer questions of all sorts. We had the best time and are certain we want to repeat the experienc

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is perfect for families, especially for those that want to bring their four-legged members. Truly a home away from home with all the amenities. Wonderful kitchen, grill, fire pit, plenty of comfortable beds. Private and secluded but minutes away from Sleeping Bear Dunes and Glen Arbor. Plenty of space to bring your water toys. Nancy was wonderful and very gracious.

Charming cottage, clean, bright and cozy with all the extras, great location,

  • 5 of 5

We were happy to find this adorable, well equiped cottage was even more charming than the photos. For the area, Nancy's Garden is a great value. This cottage has wonderful "up-north" charm and is convenient to all the local attractions and beautiful beaches. We found it super clean, bright and very inviting. The frogs, goldfish and beautiful gardens added to the charm. The affordable rate allowed for us to enjoy extras such as renting a ski boat and a sailboat on Glen Lake etc... Nancy is a delightful person and a gracious host. We will be back!
