    "We stayed here on Labor Day weekend, the cabin was perfect for our family of 4. It was simple yet sufficient for our family, if you are looking for something extravagant this is not the place for you. The location was absolutely amazing the area is one of the most pristine and beautiful I have been to in Northern Michigan (this was not our first time in the region), one thing that stood out the most for me is that we did not need to get into the car to go to the dunes, the Heritage Bike Trail is literally across the street and the main Dune Climb is a short bike/walk. The bike ride to Glen Arbor was about 4 miles and we stopped at Glen Haven about half way and watched a blacksmith make a coat hook and looked at some old boats, there is also a Lk Mich Beach there. Our boys and I loved fishing in the crystal clear Little Glen and just relaxing on the shore. If you like craft beer there is no brewery but go to Art's Tavern, Short's makes a beer specifically for them. A larger beach area would have been nice, some of the brush growth could be cleared out from either side to enhance the view of the lake and enlarge the beach area, and have the beach area more maintained lots of reeds growing on it. Also, linens would've been nice but weren't a deal breaker."

  • Tree House Bliss

    "This is the first time I have stayed at the Tree House. I've been going to the Glen Arbor area for 28 years and it's the first time not staying on Lake Michigan. I wasn't sure what to expect. Turns out it was so relaxing! The view is amazing as you are literally in a tree house! Waking up every morning to blue skies and hearing the leaves blowing in the wind was an awesome start to each day. The accommodations are cozy and clean. Norm is a wonderful host. All the activities that the area has to offer are very close by. I would highly recommend the Tree House to anyone!"

  • Our favorite house in Empire!!!!!

    "We've come to Empire for several years escaping the heat of southern Indiana. This is a great house and meets all our needs. It's modern and in a nice quiet neighborhood. In the past we've stayed in different houses but this one is by far the best. It's a pleasant little walk to downtown and the beach. There are nice hiking trails close by. The owner is a very nice person to know. Book early... this house goes fast."

  • 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."
