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.

Kelly said this about the our cabin:

"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'!

We loved our time in the Glen Arbor/Traverse City area. The cabin served a great "home base" to go out from and experience the area.
