This cabin was perfect for our family of four!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin fit our family PERFECTLY...myself, husband and our 2 boys. The cabin was clean and kept up well. We LOVED our "first" visit to Sleeping Bear Dunes. The cabin sits back from the road, is peaceful and private, the boys had plenty of room to safely ride their bikes around the driveway turnaround. The cabin is walking distance to the Dune Climb. Seemed like the perfect location for everything. We enjoyed having our own swimming area and walking right out on little Glen Lake. The sand area could be kept up a little better, I am a gardner by nature so I caught myself pulling weeds and cleaning it up (I also found poison ivy, just beware) The cabin was equipped with just about everything you can think of...a few things I didn't think of, dish soap and scrubber, kitchen towels, bathroom hand soap, a radio (there is alarm clock w/ radio but would have loved to have remembered real radio). We would love to stay here again and would refer this cabin in a second.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5
This is a comfortable small cottage. My husband and I enjoyed swimming in the lake as well as hiking on the many nearby paths and found the cottage a relaxing place to stay.The cottage has a great location across from the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. This was our 3rd year at this cottage and we plan to return.

Owner's Response: A new double bed springs and mattress replaces the older one. The queen was new last year. We tightened the screws on the bed frame.

Quaint family cottage

  • 4 of 5
Was perfect for our family of 5, including 3 young children. The lake is about knee deep a quarter mile out allowing the kids to play all day long with no worries. Also, there is a small patch of sand at the waters edge that the kids can play in as well. The cottage was fully stocked with all our needs. The only downsides are the beds are a bit uncomfortable and noisy and there is no clothes line to hang wet towels and suits. Sleeping Bear Dunes is behind the cottage a few yards down the road. The cottage is set back off the road so it is private and peaceful. It had a great old cottage feel to it. The furniture was nice and newer. The bathroom and kitchen were clean. Overall, a great little place that accomidates the best that the Glen Lake area has to offer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. We replaced the double bed with a new springs and mattress. The queen springs and mattress were new a year ago. Tightening the screws on the bed frame stopped the squeaking. There are no trees on which to hang a clothes line, but a clothes drying rack is provided. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return to our beautiful area.
