Why John or Kathy chose Glen Arbor

The cottage has been in our family for five generations. It is well stocked and enjoyed by our families.

We hope you will be able to make lasting memories vacationing at beautiful Glen Lake as we have.

What makes this cottage unique

We are located a short distance from town which is easily bike-able or walk-able on back roads. Once in town there are numerous fun shops to explore as well as the newly expanded park with tennis courts, pickle ball courts, basketball courts and lots of play equipment for the kids. Also, the Heritage Bike Trail is very close and you can ride on paved trails through the woods to Lake Michigan, Glen Haven, the dunes, or even Empire if you're up for it.

We are also only a short drive to the famous Sleeping Bear Dune Climb
