About Robert smith

Fish haven was built in the mid fifties by my grandfather Lester A. Smith. He bought ten lots for all his family members. Fish haven was recreated into a state of the art home with all the bells and whistles. Has a private beach with crystal clear water for that refreshing dip. World class salmon fishing one half mile off shore. Sleeping bear bay is the best place in America. I hope you get a chance to play in our backyard. We have been here for our entire lives and can be a resource to for restaurants,wineries. Bike rides hikes and fishing excursions.

Robert smith purchased this house in 2007

Beautiful home!

The home was wonderful! Anything you would want or need was there. Great views. Plenty to do. The owner Bob Smith is a great guy! Can't say enough about the wonderful time we all had.

The best of the best in Glen Arbor!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the Glen Arbor area for more than 30 years, and this is our best experience yet! The house is gorgeous, fully equipped, and very comfortable for the 8 adults in our family. My husband and I had the beautiful 3rd floor master suite - spacious, windows galore, view beyond compare. The lovely living room, dining area, top of the line kitchen and laundry rooms, plus a half bath are on the main level. The lower garden level has 3 bedrooms and a full bath. The home is spotless, the owners super friendly. You will love this one! We've already booked for next summer :)

SBD lover

I felt like this is how the rich and famous must vacation - top of the line home decor and views! Incredibly there were no musty smells or bad tasting well water like you get in many of the other homes in the area. The hot tube was key since the lake water was too cold to swim (but not too cold to paddle board!). The only thing that would have made this vacation complete would be a blender :)

My family has stayed at many places in the Glen Arbor area and this has been the most lovely. The owner was charming and accommodating, the house was beautiful and the lake was exquisite. We can't wait to go back!

absolutely perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

we have stayed in roughly 10 different homes/condominiums in the Glen Arbor area, and this home was by far the best. Fantastic location right on expansive beach area, terrific views from every room in the house, incredibly well appointed home. We especially enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit, and paddle board. To top it off, the owner was incredibly accommodating.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful home for an entire week and never ran out of things to do. The location is perfect, close enough to walk or ride your bike to town, but tucked away so if it is peace and quiet you desire, it is all yours. On property the hot tub is private, the decks are great for sunsets,access to the beach is easy for all members of the family The house was a perfect gathering area after a long day with its open floor plan. The owners could not have been nicer or more accommodating. I have been up to this area for the last several shoulder seasons and was hesitant to travel during peak season, but there was no stress. I would highly recommend this property to a friend or relative.
