This clean, refreshed cottage is a few houses from Lake Michigan, and a few houses from town. Bike trails are right around the corner - the Sleeping Bear Dunes are a 2 mile drive. We walked and biked everywhere and enjoyed this open space and the private 3 bedrooms. Great long weekend and responsive hosts. Thanks Pat and Beth!

Great beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage in Glen Arbor! The cottage was very clean and well maintained, decorated attractively in the beach mode. Wood floors and carpeted bedrooms. There were 8 adults and 1 young child in our group and there was plenty of room. We appreciated the fully stocked kitchen and prepared most of our meals here. We enjoyed the deck most evenings and the screened porch was nice in the early mornings. The cottage has a wonderful location--very short walk to the beach and also to shops, grocery, artists' galleries, restaurants, Cherry Republic, tennis courts, and playground. The lot is wooded so is shady and gives a sense of privacy though there are houses nearby. There are kayak and bike rentals also within walking distance. The owners left a very helpful list of information regarding the area which we really appreciated. There are several very nice beaches a short drive away also, as well as the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive. Communication with Beth and Pat was timely and pleasant! Everything went according to plan and it was a wonderful week! Wish we lived closer--Thank you!

Perfect Location, Clean Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is super cute - very well taken care of and very clean. Some very nice amenities too like onsite washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc. The location is absolutely amazing. About 1/2 block to downtown Glen Arbor, which is very walkable - lots of shops, grocery store, restaurants, bars, kayaking, bike rentals, etc. Everything is there. It is also about 1/2 block away from the beach. It is nestled on a wooded lot so feels very secluded. We had a great time! Thank you!

Good memories were made!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay while at this cottage. The description was accurate and the photos reflected the amenities honestly. As for the location, we were pleasantly surprised at how close we were to both the beach and town, which was very helpful with small children (ages ranging from 1-7). We had everything we needed, and if we didn't have it there was a grocery down the road and a coffee shop in walking distance (which probably needs to open earlier than 7am! ;)) Excellent stay and very prompt and pleasant correspondence with the owners. This makes the stay much easier! Thanks Beth and Pat!
