About Leah Hilton

I have recently purchased this home and have decided to share it with you and your families so you can create life long memories around this beautiful area. I am a life long resident of Glen Arbor but am happy to now call Empire home.

Leah Hilton purchased this house in 2014

Why Leah Hilton chose Sleeping Bear Dunes

Having grown up here and after coming back to the area after graduating college I decided to make this area my permanent home. I found this home and fell in love.

Very nice, clean home

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at the Empire Hilton! It's in a beautiful location, a nice neighborhood and the house was very clean. The house had plenty of room for my husband and I and our four children. Leah was very easy to work with and provided many things that made the stay easier - cleaning supplies, a fully stocked kitchen, beach towels, etc. We appreciated that!

Great family trip!

  • 5 of 5

We made great memories in Empire! This is a cute home and we loved staying here! The owner replies quickly and is very friendly! We would definitely recommend this property to rent! It is so close to all the fun outdoor activities! If you need groceries, make a trip to Glen Arbor for a better variety!

Great house in a convenient area

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for my husband, son and me and would have easily accommodated a larger family. The house is well-equipped, well-maintained and very convenient to the beach, dunes and other area attractions. I'd highly recommend it.

Clean, comfortable, cute home

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the look, comfort and cleanliness of this property. The neighborhood was quiet, clean and friendly. It's only a short walk into the village of Empire. The owner was accommodating and got back to us quickly. She was very welcoming and really seemed to care that we were taken care of. We would definitely rent this property again!

Cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great September weekend in Empire and Glen Arbor. What a beautiful area and such a cute house to rent. There was enough space for all 6 of us. We enjoyed putting a puzzle together and it was nice to have the kitchen for meal prep. We forgot a hair dryer and there was not one available there, but that was minor. Overall a great stay. Would definitely recommend this rental.
