About Margaret Doman

My wife, Margaret and I were born and raised in Michigan where we are raising our three children. We've always loved getting away Up North vacationing with our family and we'd love to share our slice of heaven with you!

Margaret Doman purchased this house in 2014

Why Margaret Doman chose Sleeping Bear Dunes

When Margaret and I discovered Glen Arbor and the Leelanau Peninsula about 7 years ago, we fell in love with the area. There is so much to do for the whole family and its beauty is breathtaking. Our home is literally one block from the town area of Glen Arbor which is a really cool place with all the amenities. There's nothing like going to Boone Docks with the family in the summer, sitting on their large outdoor deck, grabbing a burger and beer while listening to the live music entertainment.

What makes this house unique

This is a newly built home (2008) with wood floors and ceilings throughout and a stone fireplace. Everything is new and in great shape. And in the evening you can hear the waves crashing on Lake Michigan while enjoying a bonfire with family and friends.

***we just completed a total basement remodel during the Spring of 2016***

We added a 4th bedroom with a queen bed, a large rec room with pool table, card table, and bar. There is also a family room area with a 60 inch flat screen TV.

Beautiful cottage close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Glen Arbor for years but this is the first time we stayed so close to downtown. This cottage is walking distance to everything, we only used the car to go to the dunes, although we could've rode bikes. The cottage is nice and very comfortable. We ended each night playing pool after the fire pit. The owners were nice and easy to communicate with. All in all, I would recommend this place to anyone. We had our family of 5 and could've easily had another family stay with us.

"No Worries" lives up to it's name

  • 5 of 5

Inside this property has plenty of living space not to mention sleeping space. Did not have much opportunity to enjoy the outdoor space as the weather wasn't the greatest. Outside of a few very minor details, this home is well equipped with everything you need be it a Fall weekend or a Summer weeks vacation. Would love to spend a week here in the summer but it looks pretty well booked!

Owner's Response: Hi Greg, We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at 'No Worries!' We would love for you to come stay for a week in the summer! Remember that September is also a fabulous month to be up north. The weather this year was warmer in September than in August and the prices are cheaper! We still have openings in June (1-22nd), in July(14-20th), August(17-24th or 24-30th). You must book early, as July and August are always the first weeks to fill up! May is lovely, too!

All 8 of us- Grandparents,parents 2& 4 yr. olds enjoyed the property.

  • 5 of 5

We cooked out one night .we made hot dogs and smores over the fire. We had a beautiful gas stove to cook our meals. We walked to town for dinner. The Cyclery was at the end of the street. The boys loved the chipmunks and squirrels and playing in the front yard running around the trees.All agreed we need to come back to this home again.

We had a great time at "NO WORRIES" last week.

  • 5 of 5

We really appreciated the accommodation for us, a family of eight, including 6 adults and 2 youngsters. The proximity to the biking opportunities as well as the convenience of being close to the center of GLEN ARBOR. This place has a wonderful wraparound porch which we loved to sit on and read and enjoy the great out of doors. The place was also large enough that we could easily go off to our corner inside the house to have some private space as well.

Thanks for a great place to celebrate our 50th Wedding anniversary with family.

Wonderful house with plenty of room for everyone!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented No Worries for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. House was amazing and was walking distance to downtown Glen Arbor. After a great weekend tasting wine at the Sip and Savor, we enjoyed some time around the camp fire, then moved into the basement for some games of pool.

The house was perfect and having all of our close friends being able to spend the weekend with us under one roof brought us back to our wedding weekend at the Homestead.

Thanks for helping us make more memories! We will definitely be back!!!
