Glen Lake Awesome!
Fantastic property on Little Glen Lake! We had 9 adults and 4 babies and there was plenty of room for more. Weather didn't cooperate as it was unusually cool and rainy but we made do. Beautiful property/setting. We hope to return next year!
Beyond words vacation home!
We had a great vacation at this home. We have rented a number of properties on Little Glen and Lavender Hill surpasses all of them! We had 7 adults and 1 child staying at the home for the week, and 3 other adults that stayed a couple of nights here and there and space was never an issue. We typically go to Glen Arbor and the surrounding towns almost daily on these vacations for shopping, food and atmosphere, but found ourselves "staying in" most days to enjoy this home, its amenities and lake frontage. We spent most of our time gathering in the amazing kitchen (eating and raving about the nugget ice maker), hanging out on the covered porch, playing in the sand on the large beach or sitting around the campfire. The grounds are impeccable with resort-like landscaping and a gorgeous view of Little Glen. There truly is little reason to leave this property while you stay here. Joe and Fran are great - very attentive and responsive and they strive to anticipate all of your needs on a vacation stay. We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing and luxurious stay on Little Glen!
Great property with ALL the amenities
This is a far cry from your grandparents' old family cabin. The lap of luxury with all the appointments of a high-end resort. Owners are great to work with, too.
Fantastic family get away
We had the opportunity to stay in this wonderful and meticulously maintained waterfront home and really enjoyed the home and grounds. Little Glen lake is magnificent, crystal clear and a very blue color. Was perfect for tubing and water activities with our children. Sleeping bear dunes are clearly visible from the lake. Glen Arbor is just a few minutes away and offers many activities such as bike riding, canoeing, Resturants, Shoppes and a small town charm. We hope you enjoy this rental and amenities as much as we did. The memories you will create are priceless.
PERFECT VACATION SPOT!
Our stay was perfect from start to finish. The house was more than we expected and perfect for our ladies weekend. Everyone was in awe of the house and it fit our group very comfortably. I would absolutely stay here again. We are already looking into available dates. Joe and Fran were great to work with and VERY quick to respond. I will recommend this vacation rental to everyone!
Out of this World
What can we say about this amazing home that hasn't already been said? My sisters and I, along with husbands, children, and grandchildren just spent the most wonderful week reconnecting with each other. There were 18 of us, 11 adults and 7 children that ranged in age from 3-10. Normally that large a group would feel cramped and crowded but not in this home! There was plenty of space for all of us to gather to eat after fixing a meal in the most "to die for" kitchen. Two huge refrigerator/freezers, two sinks, two dishwashers, an 8 burner gas stove and for our grandchildren, the best was the mini refrigerator that dispensed crushed ice. What a luxury! The butler's pantry enabled all of us to store the food we brought and there was enough plates, cups, silverware, glasses, wine glasses, mugs to accommodate a group even larger than ours.
The bedrooms were lovely and had plenty of storage. We always had plenty of hot water and 3 sets of washer/dryers was a huge help. Much to our surprise there was a sauna in the master bedroom and that was an unexpected treat.
Little Glen Lake is wonderful for small children. The sandy beach and shallow lake was perfect for the ages of our grandchildren. They could play and go quite a distance from shore without it getting too deep for them. The boat house beside the beach is beautiful. We were not expecting to have a wine fridge, large TV and full bath down there. Great use of that space. There were beach and water toys, yard games, bikes, exercise bike and a fooz ball table in the garage for all to use.
We used the fire pit most every night and the sunsets from there are breathtaking. Seeing Sleeping Bear dunes in the distance was awesome.
Joe and Fran were wonderful to deal with and so accommodating. So friendly and really happy to make sure we had an amazing time while in their home. When they were remodeling this home they seemed to have considered every detail. The home is exquisite.
Our family had a week of laughter, fun, love and togetherness. It was a week we will always remember and cherish. Thank you, Joe and Fran, for allowing us to have a week we will never forget.
