SUNSETS, SAND, CRYSTAL CLEAR WATER ON EAST SHORE OF GLEN LAKE!

Glen Arbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Look no farther. This rental is not like others on Glen Lake. It was built as a second home on the property and is a truly great architecturally designed and comfortable home with all the amenities you would expect, year round in your own home. Located slightly to the south-east behind the main house, the home for rent is situated on the most sought after side of Big Glen with sandy bottoms and sunsets to die for. It has generous views of the lake, koi pond with waterfall, and professionally landscaped gardens. It also has 100 ft of private lake frontage with a fire pit, a dock, an anchored buoy for those that have or want to rent a boat, and a 19' trampoline tube to swim out to. The 1st floor great room has a pool table, family room with TV - stereo system - fireplace, a full kitchen, a dining area that seats 11, windows galore, and a full bathroom with shower. The 2nd floor has an additional sitting area off the 3 bedrooms with a kitchenette, a 50' plasma TV, a walk out deck, and a full bath room with a 2 person jacuzzi tub. The Master Bedroom is equipped with a TV and has a private sun deck. Wi-Fi is also available.

If you're not familiar with Glen Lake and its many surrounding attractions, you're in for something special. Just to start with, only 4 miles away (a great bike ride), Glen Arbor is a quaint, active small village nestled among tall deep green pines and fresh air breezes while situated amid the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Lakeshore Park on three incredibly beautiful bodies of water: Lake Michigan with capturing awesome views of the Manitou Islands and Pyramid Point, the exceptionally scenic Glen Lakes ranked among the most beautiful lakes in the world, and the meandering Crystal River with sparkling clear flowing waters which truly live up to the river's name, a must canoe/kayak trip. In the Village there are restaurants, galleries, design studios, boutiques, grocery stores, shopping, canoe-kayak liveries, unique clothing stores and more. A village post office, a gas station and the local 'watering hole', too. All of Leelanau County is breathtaking and boast acres and acres of Sleeping Bear Dunes spanning from the town of Empire all the way North to the town of Northport. The shopping, wineries, restaurants, sightseeing, hiking, golfing, biking, tennis, water skiing, sailing, fishing, Lake Michigan beaches, dune climbs, galleries, sunset concerts,Fall Colors, Downhill or cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and close to anything you'd be up for are endless and are the best anywhere. One of the things that is remarkable in this day and age is that the area has not been inhabited by corporate chains such as McDonands, Starbucks, Holiday Inn, etc. A true Up-North local grown paradise. Although a quick 20 mile scenic drive to Traverse City will accommodate your city needs. A trip worth taking.

Rest assured your stay will be memorable. The home for rent is available year round and very private with woods on either side of the property all the way to the water. Whether you're active or laid back, this rental is the one for you. Renters return year after year and we're sure you will to. Reserve your vacation today.

WINTER WONDERLAND

  • 5 of 5
An awesome get-a-away for a mid-winter break! Our family of 8 adults thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this rental home. We came "up north" to partake in a chili cook-off at the Boone Docks and try our hand at some ice fishing. Both were a success. Big Glen Lake also provided a great time of ice skating. Having town a short 5 minutes away made for some shopping and wine tasting by the ladies.
The property is easy to find and offers ample parking for multiple vehicles. It was appreciated to have everything we needed available to us, no need to pack the "little things". The home is well equipped with whatever you think you will need for your stay. The wood burning fireplace, stereo system, pool table, and bonus space upstairs were all put to good use. Luck was with us for a bright, sunny, snowy weekend which made for beautiful pictures. The lake is just panoramic!
Thank you Kamp Kendall for making new family memories for us to cherish....we will be back again someday.

GOOD GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I should admit that my family was very satisfied by this property. Everything exceeded my expectations. The size is just right for 8 people and full of amenities including washer/dryer, full kitchen and even a pool table. Location is also perfect/quiet, off from the main road/right next to Glen Lake. It is also located a few miles from little downtown where you can get stuff you need. It was little awkward at the moment that the property was sitting behind the main house but it was not a big deal for us.. Actually having the owner nearby was not really bad to ask questions, to borrow stuff that I forgot to bring.
Overall this was an ideal place for relaxing and also seems that you can get lots of actions when it's not so cold. Very looking forward to coming back.

FANTASTIC INTRODUCTION TO VACATIONING "UP NORTH"!

Fantastic introduction to vacationing "Up North"!
  • 5 of 5
Our family had a great experience at this property during our first vacation "Up North."

The City of Glen Arbor and the entire Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore were big hits on our trip. The dune climb/hike to Lake Michigan, Heritage Trail Bike Ride, Pierce Stocking Drive Tour and a visit to Cherry Republic are MUST DO'S. Also enjoyed walking around the streets, shops, and restaurants of Glen Arbor.

However, the biggest hit of our trip was our time on Big Glen Lake. The property is as advertised...and much, much more. The home/property are beautiful, clean, and well maintained. The owners are on site and (as previously mentioned) are very welcoming, friendly, and helpful without being intrusive. They were very gracious and appreciative hosts.

The house and the property provided EVERYTHING for our vacation. The basics of the house were there, but all linens, towels, kitchen/cooking items, were also there including a few nice extras - a dishwasher, blender, coffee pot and washer/dryer in the garage area! The pool table was great and the whole home stereo system was perfect for entertainment. The 2nd floor has a great sitting/TV area with a wet bar so everyone can have their own space when needed.

The lakefront has use of the swimming area, a canoe, a kayak, life jackets, water toys, a fire pit, lawn chairs...and most important...a hammock looking out to Glen Lake!

All in all, would absolutely come back and would highly recommend this property to family, friends, or anyone interested in a perfect blend of activities/sight seeing....or doing nothing but relaxing!

PERFECT RENTAL FOR A "LAKE VACATION" FOR TWO FAMILIES

Perfect rental for a "lake vacation" for two families
  • 4 of 5
We vacationed at this home with our friends. Our party totaled 4 adults and 4 kids (ages 7, 7, 3, and 2). We were very comfortable in the house and the location was ideal.

The rental house is on the same property as the main house. As renters you have access to the shared back yard, where we spent a good deal of time while at the house. It includes a wonderful, sandy beach area for the kids and includes a hammock, fire pit, comfy chairs, kayak, canoe, pier, and anchored raft. The water stays shallow for yards and yards, so it's ideal for kids.

The owners were super helpful without being obtrusive.

Glen Arbor is so quaint and pretty. The home location is just 4 miles (less than a 10 minute drive) from "downtown" Glen Arbor.

BIG GLEN RENTAL - GUEST HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house and all its amenities. It offered a perfect beach for my 2 and 4 year-old granddaughters and for my 29 year-old daughter! The washer and dryer in the garage was a god-send and the kitchen really was fully equipped. My grown children loved the pool table. We were impressed with all the private space the house offered and how quiet it was; we didn't seem to hear one another even though we were all going to bed and getting up and different times. Owners were unobtrusive and so helpful. My husband loved eating outdoors and my grandchildren were delighted by the waterfall feature and the resident frog. We will come back!

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
Five star vacation! We could not have picked a more perfect place or perfect people to rent from. Accommodating doesn’t even begin to describe the owners. They provided everything we needed and more. Beach, sunsets, chairs, kayak, pool table, hammock, and an entire three bedroom house with all the comforts of home available for your use. We were actually sad to leave. This is the type of place that has you checking your schedule for the next opportunity to come back.
