What a lovely cottage this is! So thoughtfully decorated, clean and comfortable. Judith is an amazing hostess and is incredibly helpful with suggestions on just about anything in the area. We spent the weekend outdoors but hope to come back in the winter to enjoy the fireplace and cozy atmosphere of Bear's Knoll Cottage. It really does feel like a home rather than a rental unit. We were delighted by all of the thoughtful touches by our fabulous hostess - fresh fruit and half and half in the fridge, several coffee options to choose from, a beautiful table set with fresh flowers for our arrival, homemade cookies on a plate in the kitchen, a spotless bathroom, tons of maps and brochures if help is needed on deciding what to do; but ultimately Judith has made this such a beautiful place one might find it hard to go into town! Thanks for sharing Judith.
Owner's Response: Thank you ~~ I was delighted to be your host and I am looking forward to your next visit. Glad you enjoyed the cookies made with our own local Leelanau County CHERRIES. Fall brings even more wonderful harvests from Leelanau's farmers available at the many local Farm Markets. Judith

My husband and I were very impressed with this cottage and its hospitality. From the time we booked our stay, Judith was very helpful and stayed in constant communication with us. She has sent us numerous e-mails about unique things to do in the area and was very quick to respond to all the questions we had. When we arrived in the evening the cottage was lit up with smooth jazz music playing in the background, and delicious chocolate and cherry homemade brownies in the fridge! What a welcome!
The place is thoughtfully prepared for a relaxing time with plenty of board games, ready to use firewood, and cosy blankets. Kitchen also had everything we needed for cooking and making coffee and tea.
The cottage location was just what we wanted - quiet, surrounded by tall trees with houses spread pretty far apart. We were a very short drive from downtown Glen Arbor, and in close proximity to all the area small towns: Leland, Empire, Sutton Bay and Traverse City are all under 45 minutes away driving on winding roads through tall trees. We really enjoyed going to different small towns for a nice dinner every evening. The local food never disappointed.
If you do decide staying in the area one of the things we highly recommend is renting a kayak at Crystal River Outfitters in Glen Arbor and kayaking down the river. We had such a relaxing time kayaking through a fall forest!
Overall couldn't have had a better experience with the cottage and the area during our fall 4-night getaway!

Wonderful place to stay.

My wife and I and our twin toddlers stayed here for one week. We all wished that it could have been longer. Going out to restaurants with two 5yos is seldom much fun for the parents, so we brought plenty of food and cooked our favorite meals in the spotless and well-supplied kitchen and on the propane grill.

We found that virtually everything that we needed or wanted could be found somewhere in the cottage provided for our use.
If we could have a vacation home in Glen Arbor I would want it to be just like this.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much! Our desire is to provide a home away from home for our guests; one where adults can enjoy an atmosphere that is quiet and charming, yet is furnished with the needs and comforts of families with children kept in mind. Everyone seems to appreciate the washer and dryer in the unit and the kitchen ready for the gourmet cook or a simple BBQ grilled burger. Also if the TV is showing a Disney movie or Golf, one can still find a comfortable, quiet spot behind closed doors for reading or relaxing in the bedroom or garden room. Judith & Barrett
