Beech Tree Lodge is our 4100 s.f. home on the sunset side of Big Glen Lake. Built in 2002.
We have 100 feet of private waterfront, with a 140-foot sun dock, sandy lake bottom, and lots of clear BLUE water for sunning, swimming, boating, canoeing/kayaking, or water volleyball. There is plenty of space at the beach for picnics and reading, as well as a large fire pit for evening cookouts and camp fires.
A few steps across Glen Lake Road, our five bedroom, five bathroom home includes a 'bunk room' for the kids. A separate family/card room has great views of Big Glen Lake. A huge screened porch overlooks the beach and lake. The large Great Room has a commanding view of the lake, and the most beautiful sunrise ever! Our cozy den offers privacy, with a desk and wireless internet hookup, and yes, a great view of the lake! Our dining area seats 12+. The professional kitchen has a huge island with a six-burner Viking stove. Stainless steel appliances are by Viking, Bosch, and GE. There is lots of space for group cooking fun!
We are located next to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, with miles of hiking and nature trails that overlook the two Glen Lakes as well as Lake Michigan views all the way to Wisconsin! Leelanau County is known for wineries, herb farms, golf, great restaurants, and unique shopping. Catch some perch on Little Glen Lake, or charter fish for trout and salmon on Lake Michigan. And... Leelanau County is a biker's destination!
We built our vacation home in 2002 so our far-flung family can rendezvous each summer and many holidays. This is THE 'Cape Cod' of Michigan!
