Destination guide

Enjoy pristine waters in the shadows of giants

One look at the crystal clear, iridescent blue waters of Glen Lake and you'll immediately understand why National Geographic named it one of the most beautiful lakes on the planet. Floating below the towering sands of the Sleeping Bear Dunes, the surprisingly calm waters are a haven for swimmers and boaters. A Glen Lake vacation rental in one of the quaint hamlets and villages dotting the lake's shores puts you a stone's throw from all the water sports you could want, and views that are impossible to beat.

Things to do

If you think sand is just for beaches, think again

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore has mountains of the grainy stuff just waiting to be explored. Whether you prefer a scenic drive, or would rather take in the fresh air on one of the many walking, hiking, or biking trails, the views are spectacular. For an adrenaline boost, try to climb the dunes or speed down them on a sandboard (switch it out for a sled when the dunes are blanketed in snow). For a taste of civilization, stroll the streets of the towns dotting the lake's shores, or take the short drive to nearby Traverse City.


If it involves water, you'll find it at Glen Lake

While the beauty of the waters is undeniable, it's the lack of large waves that keeps water lovers coming back to Glen Lake for endless fun in the sun. A haven for swimmers and boaters, the lake's waters are also chock full of enough perch, trout, and bass to make sure your dinner table stays full. Landlovers will enjoy the sandy beaches and the surrounding trails that attract runners and hikers from around the country. For even better views, try your hand at scaling the massive sand dunes which surround the lake.


Bask in the summer sun, and be sure to bundle up in winter

The sunny days of summer are peak season for water activities and Glen Lake vacation rentals, when the crystal blue waters are sparkling and the temperatures are warm but pleasant (usually hovering in the 70s from June to September). Break out the parkas and boots for the winter, when temperatures can drop well below the freezing mark. It's not uncommon for several inches of snow to blanket the towering dunes from November all the way through April.

Natural features

Blues that you'll have to see to believe

Glen Lake owes its reputation for beauty to the lake's unbelievably blue waters, which are separated into two parts by a narrow land bridge. Separated from vast Lake Michigan by a post-glacial sandbar, the shores of the stand-alone lake are dotted with tiny hamlets and waterfront Glen Lake vacation rentals. Soaring high above the lake's surface are the unforgettable sandy mounds of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore, which are short on flora and fauna, but long on sensational views.
