About the property

2 Bedroom/1 Bathroom- Big Glen Access

This quaint little northwoods spot is the perfect getaway. The cabin is nestled in the quiet woods across the road from Old Settler's Park, which provides access to Big Glen Lake and a small public boat launch perfect for kayaks or canoes. This Burdickville location is within walking distance of two of the regions finest dining establishments, and a corner store/ice cream shop. It is just a short drive to the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Lake Michigan Beaches, the Crystal River, and the many towns in the area.

The cabin has 2 bedrooms, each with a double bed, and a sofa bed which sleeps an additional 2 people. There is a fully equipped kitchen and an outdoor grill. Enjoy a meal out on the deck. The outdoor fire pit is the perfect spot to stay warm as the sun sets behind Alligator Hill.

"I don't have the words to tell how great the weekend has been for us. Your place is wonderful - everything thing I think Up North is about. We will definitely will be back. My plan is to move back to MI. Making memories with my kids here has been priceless. - Kelly"

We welcome you 'Up North'!

About Heidi

Heidi is an Elementary School teacher and Joakim is a group fitness trainer. We are both interested in the outdoors and love running and fitness. We have enjoyed summers in this area of years and are happy to welcome people to come see what Leelanau County has to offer.

Heidi purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Heidi chose Maple City

Our cabin is in a great location for shopping, The Dunes, skiing, hiking and local wineries. Located across from access to Big Glen Lake makes it convenient to the water but being set back in a one acre forest provides the privacy that makes for a perfect getaway.

Perfect Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

What a great little cabin in the woods. It slept 5 of us comfortably. The view was spectacular. They even left the lights on for us to find our way in the complete dark! It's clean, warm and inviting. We stayed for a girls weekend and loved hanging out in the living room laughing and enjoying the wood stove/fireplace. It was 100% better than a hotel room where you could only sit on a bed to hangout. I particularly liked the fans in the bedrooms to have some "white-noise" for sleeping. I would love to come back and stay longer with the family and explore the Traverse City/Glen Arbor area.

Adorably quaint!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed over the weekend because my daughter participated in the annual Sleeping Bear marathon. I love this cute cabin in the woods. Very relaxing surroundings and clean . It rained all weekend, so was not able to use the fire pit, but i'm sure if we had, would be a satisfying experience for everyone. Good communication with owners. This adorable cabin in the woods comes highly recommended:)

Across the road from Old Settler's Park and Big Glen lake. This cabin is just miles from Glen Arbor and the Sleeping Bear National Park. Enjoy the lakes, the forests and the dunes this summer.

The cabin is just a short drive from Glen Arbor, Empire and Leland and only 30 minutes from Traverse City.
