About Cynthia Cole and Sally Cole-Misch

This attractive condo was purchased and decorated by the family, including our mother and grandmother. Our children have enjoyed this condo since childhood and now are bringing their children up. We enjoy being out in nature and love to hike and ride on the peninsula's many trails, beaches and parks, as well as the towns and of course our own beach! For us it is the perfect home away from home.

Cynthia Cole and Sally Cole-Misch purchased this condo in 1985

Why Cynthia Cole and Sally Cole-Misch chose Sleeping Bear Dunes

This condo is a family place, loved by its owners, and we would like you to also have the wonderful time we have had over the years. This is great place to make family memories that will last a lifetime. The people of Glen Arbor and the surrounding areas are welcoming and will make you feel at home. This area of Michigan is a gift to all who visit there and we hope you enjoy being in its midst.

What makes this condo unique

The area is unique in its beauty and was voted as the 'Most Beautiful Place in America' by Good Morning America! All of us agree with this sentiment and love to be part of it year round. The first floor location is great for carrying in groceries and luggage and for 'older' knees. This is a warm and welcoming condo that we truly feel you will love as much as we do!

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very spacious and clean. To be able to walk out the back door to the beach was very convenient or sit on the back patio was very relaxing!

Absolutely beautiful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't of asked for a better vacation spot! The place was clean and comfortable with plenty of amenities. Glen Arbor was a close drive or bike ride away along with the Sleeping Bear Dunes, hiking trails, and much more. The beach was right there so it was easy to get to. I loved that it was tucked back a bit in the homestead, seemed like a secret oasis. My favorite part was the view, you could see the sunset every night under Lake Michigan! You can tell the owners love and care for their place. I will definetly be taking my family back there again!!

Delightful week for our family, once again!

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to thank you for a delightful week at your vacation home in South Beach. Everything was great, weather was basically perfect. If you have a week available next July, we'd be interested in returning for another year to Unit 12. Thank you!

Very comfortable, amazing sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family enjoyed our time in your condo at Glen Arbor. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the surrounding towns, but always rushed back to make sure we could see the wonderful sunsets. The condo was clean and ready for us when we arrived. Thanks for the opportunity to visit.
