Property description

Situated on the shore of lake michigan just a stone’s throw from the water’s edge, this cottage’s location couldn’t be better. At the end of lake isle and the base of sleeping bear bay, it’s close to the action in glen arbor, but far enough away for the peace and quiet you’re seeking. In addition to a front-row seat to all the beachfront fun you can handle, the surrounding area offers a huge variety of opportunities to explore & play. Hiking the sleeping bear sand dunes, biking on the newly-constructed heritage trail, cross country skiing and snowshoeing, wine tasting on leelanau and old mission peninsulas, charter fishing for salmon and steelhead, and arts & live entertainment throughout the county and in traverse city - the options are nearly endless.

This traditional lakefront cottage is set up for family gatherings. A large living room with a two-story wall of windows welcomes in the world class views of sleeping bear bay and the manitou islands. It’s furnished with a comfortable sofa and chairs and a 50” flat screen above the wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen and dining room offer plenty of seating and space to prepare big meals. And when it’s time to call it a night, each of the bedrooms is outfitted with comfy beds and flat screen tvs.

The spacious front deck has a gas grill and a variety of seating, perfect for a quiet morning coffee as the day begins, or a big family meal as you take in another postcard-perfect northern michigan sunset. From the deck it’s less than 100’ down to the beach. If you’re unfamiliar with sleeping bear bay, there are few freshwater beaches that are nicer. It offers miles of sandy shoreline to explore, beachcombing for petoskey stones, sandcastle building, or simply relaxing on a blanket with a book and letting the world’s worries slip away.

Specifics:
The bedrooms are arranged as follows: on the main level is the master bedroom with a king bed. There is a shared full bathroom just across the hall from the bedroom. The second level has 2 bedrooms with queen beds, and the top floor loft is furnished with 4 twin beds. (the loft is accessed through the shared 2nd floor bathroom.)

The kitchen is fully equipped with an assortment of pots & pans, dishes and silverware, a drip coffee maker, and blender, among other staples.

All linens and towels are provided and the cottage is professionally cleaned before every check-in.

There is cable tv and broadband wireless internet.

Our goal is to deliver a fantastic experience for our guests, so if you’re curious about something specific, just ask us.

About us:

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

Why Glen Arbor, MI, USA:
The owners bought it because of the gorgeous views, the big front deck, the open floorplan and the cozy living room. They loved that once they arrived at the lake from their home downstate, they could park the car for their entire stay. Anything they needed was only a short walk away. Boone Docks for lunch on the deck, ice cream at the Pine Cone, happy hour at Art Tavern. And any time the urge arose, a quick dip in Lake Michigan could be enjoyed at a moments notice.
