This beautifully furnished vacation home is located in the middle of the charming village of Glen Arbor, which is surrounded by Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Most of the park's main attractions are less than a three mile drive from our location, and most of the town's shops and galleries are a short walk from our home. We offer five bedrooms with five full bathrooms: four are private suites; each with either a king or queen bed, full bath, TV with cable, phone, and high-speed internet access. Fifth bedroom is a bunkroom featuring a twin over full bunk and a twin-sized fold-out oversized chair and TV with cable. There is an adjoining full bath in the hall. Air conditioned. Finished 3 car attached garage for easy loading and unloading.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Located in the charming resort town of Glen Arbor and walkable to everything which is important during the summer when parking is at a premium, from restraunts to art galleries, and all sorts of recreation opportunities.

Why the Owner Chose Glen Arbor, MI, USA:
We have been coming up to Glen Arbor for years and kept looking for that perfect place for our second home. The place we envisioned just didn't seem to exist so we finally built it! Based on the floor plans of great resorts that we have stayed at, Bearberry House allows for all guests to have their own space (and bathroom) as well as ample inside and outside areas for everyone to gather together. We planned for good - and not so good - weather by having a large screened-in porch as well as an even larger two-tiered deck - both with seating for everyone. Our location is quiet enough to see and hear the wildlife, yet close enough to be able to walk to the grocery store ... and pretty much everything else in town!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walkable to everything in Glen Arbor: Shops, Galleries, Cherry Republic, Crystal River Kayaking, Glen Arbor Park and Tennis Courts, Art's Tavern, Western Avenue Grill, Boonedocks, Blu, Lake Michigan Beach, Alligator Hill Hiking/X-country Ski trails, biking, hiking and more!
