  • Great Rental! Would recommend.

    "I would recommend this property for any family looking to stay in the Empire / Glen Arbor area. The property is very clean, well maintained and up to date with very nice furniture and fixtures. This property truly felt like our own home and the entire family felt comfortable here. It has every amenity you would want or look for and it is kept very clean, like your own home. The property is close to the local Empire beach, which is great for children and a relaxing day outside. It is a short drive up M-22 to Sleeping Bear National Park, which includes the scenic drive and dune climb. It is a short drive to Glen Arbor where there is more shopping and many restaurants to choose from. Traverse City is only about 20-25 minutes away. This really was a great location to set as your jumping off point and return point for all things in this area. The only issues I would recommend for the owner is to put up some shades or drapes over the living room windows for some privacy and temperature control and key the front and back door to the same key to make it possible to enter and leave from either the front or rear door. Otherwise, this house is absolutely perfect."

  • Just What We Needed

    "We just returned from a week at Grove House and had the best time ever. The property is secluded but within walking distance of the town of Empire, the Sleeping Bear Heritage bike trail, and Lake Michigan. It is peaceful and quiet there. Our dogs were able to roam the grounds off leash (not possible in the city where they live) and we spent many hours on the enclosed porch, watching the wildlife or catching up on our reading. It was truly the rest and recuperation we both needed after a really hard winter and work schedule. The place is spotless, well equipped, and the owners are tremendously helpful. Will definitely visit again."

  • Great lake house, great location, awesome owners

    "Nice house six feet from the shore. Beautiful views inside and out. Fully stocked and perfect lake house for us to have a great family vacation. lots of hours spent in lake and nearby sites at dunes, glen arbor and more. Owners were extremely nice and helpful. They were very proactive in setting up a dock ladder for our little kids and explaining everything. Highly recommended"

  • Best of both worlds - located on powerful Lake Michigan AND peaceful South Bar Lake

    "My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay at this beach house. Just steps out the front of the house, you have breathtaking views of Lake Michigan and Sleeping Bear Dunes. Off your back porch, you're sitting on peaceful South Bar Lake. The number of wildlife we encountered during our stay was unbelievable! Deer, chipmunks, squirrels, beavers, ducks, birds and even a bald eagle visited daily. We enjoyed our little family of deer who came by daily to say hi - including two fawns who rested near the edge of South Bar Lake, at the bottom of the stairs leading to the private dock. We loved the proximity to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor and even took the short trip over to Traverse City one day. We rode our bikes into Glen Arbor one afternoon and took a kayak out for a tour of the lake. We walked into downtown Empire one night for ice cream at Tiffany's which was amazing! We also rode bikes to Village Inn Pizza for dinner one night and also tried out Joe's Friendly Tavern - recommend both of them. The public beach and park is a short 3-5 minute walk and is very clean and well kept. The house is charming and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. We loved it and will hopefully visit again soon."
