Glen Lake has been our summer vacation spot for the past 31 years. We have vacationed at Sunset Shore for the past 10 years; heading there again this summer.

Look no farther. This cottage has it all. Beautiful views. Gorgeous cottage. Spacious. Fully equipped. So clean! Excellent swimming---Truly a sandy beach and lake bottom.

Sunset Shore in Glen Arbor on Big Glen Lake

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The second we pulled up I knew it was going to be a wonderful week!!! The appearance alone is clean, welcoming, beautiful, well manicured lawn and driveway. The bedrooms were also clean and spacious for each couple. The kitchen and bathrooms had everything we needed and more, the outdoor area was perfect: enough chairs, little tables and right to the beach. The properties on either side were far back and we had a lot of privacy and enjoyed the space. The trees added to the Michigan views and the sunsets were incredible. Harwood floors made it feel clean and easy to keep clean, the blue front door is a sweet touch and the cottage is in great shape!

Great for families, couples, friends, guy/girls weeks and younger children.

Laura was great to communicate with and easy to get a hold of and get my questions answered. I am so happy that I found this and tried it out because now it will be the cottage we stay in for years to come!!!

We really enjoyed our stay. It was peaceful, relaxing, and well-equipped. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer!

We had a most enjoyable time at Sunset Shore! This is a perfect Glen Lake cottage... very comfortable and all necessities available. The lake water is amazing, lots of space in the house and the picture window is unbelievable! The neighbors were quiet and it is in a good location on the lake. We have stayed at many cottages on Glen Lake (for over 15 years) and Sunset Shore is in the Top 3. The option to bring a small, well-behaved dog would have made it more enjoyable.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were very glad to be back this year. We love it! Unfortunately the weather was a little cool, but still glad to be cold here rather than cold at home. Hope to be back next year! Thanks again!

Take care,
