The Neighborhood

Private home on very private wooded setting. Right down the road from Glen Lake access, walking distance to Funistrada (Italian) and La Becasse (french), two of the best restaurants in the area. Glen Arbor was voted the most beautiful place in America in 2012. The Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore is spectacular.

Centrally located. Close to many great places. A short drive to downtown Glen Arbor, Empire, MI, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Pyramid Point, Heritage Trail. 20 minutes to beautiful Traverse City.

This is a one of a kind rental home. It is 4,200 sq feet with a big kitchen, big bedrooms, big bathrooms and big yard. Built in 2009, it less than 5 years old. Many of the cottages for rent in the area are small, cut-up, cramped and old. This is our full time real home so it is equipped like a real house, rather than a part time summer cottage.

Wireless and high speed internet; TVs; Washer/Dryer; Vaulted ceilings; AC, Ceiling fan. Linens and towels provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When Enrico says "big families, kids & pets Welcome" he's not kidding! Our group of 4 families felt right at home - but better than home - at this house. Plenty of room, very well appointed, and super comfortable for all ages. As a host Enrico was attentive, helpful, and responsive when it came to communicating about arrangements and details. The location of this home was PERFECT for our group. Close to everything we wanted to get to - beaches, dunes, Laker Shakes, Glen Lake, and all that is great about Northern Michigan. We had a great time and Enrico and his house exceeded our expectations.

What a fun place to stay. Spacious and private. Lots of fun things to do at the house.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation staying at this house. There is a lot of room in this house. And it has conveniences that we didn't expect: a convection microwave, a sound system that works off of your phone, a gas fireplace, and use of the garage. Enrico was easy to work with and very responsive to our needs. Great place to stay!

House was better than the pics.

  • 5 of 5

House was great for our family. Lots of entertainment for the kids and walking distance to great restaurants and the lake. The half basement provided great summer sleeping conditions as it was nice and cool. Owner makes you feel very welcomed.

We would seek this house out again if we travel back to the area.

Leelanau vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this home. Our group was four couples plus two young children. The main floor has a large, well furnished great room which blends right into the dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is superb: spacious, modern, very well equipped, and stocked with cooking basics such as spices and condiments. The four bedrooms are spacious and the beds were comfortable. Bathrooms (1 master, 1 full, and 1 half) are fine but there is no tub, only showers in the full baths. There are some nice features including foosball and pool tables, hot tub, large fire pit, and enclosed trampoline. Lower level has additional common space, seating, small fridge, and doorwall to the front lawn. There is an enormous deep garage, room for two vehicles plus extra room. The very nice front deck faces the sunny front yard while the shady (partly covered) back patio goes out to the heavily wooded hillside behind the home. Location is good - easy drive to sand dunes and Glen Arbor. It was a nice touch that the owner (Enrico) met us at arrival for a quick tour, and lives nearby if needed. In summary this home is clean and in very good shape. It was ideal for our group and we highly recommend.
