Location

Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore Park is all around us. Sleeping Bear was named 'the most beautiful place in the nation' by the Good Morning America show in August 2012. We have the most beautiful sunset view of Sleeping Bear Park. We are on the South shore of Big Glen Lake with its clear blue waters and pure sand bottom. The whole area is breath taking and filled with wonderful outdoor things to do.
