Reviewer Comments:

Foxwood is a quaint, clean, and cozy house. It had all of the amenities needed for a get away with older children and our two dogs. We visited off season when many places were not open in town or in the surrounding towns, however there were still options and no tourists. Wish there was a quiet spot to sit with a view. The spot on the river requires crossing a busy street and traffic is noisy. Also, the furnace inside the house is very loud and a shed in the back blocks the potential view of the woods from inside the house.

Manager responded on 4/6/2015:

Things start hopping in Glen Arbor typically in May. The peaceful slowness of the off season is often a welcome retreat. There is little traffic in town prior to May through the winter and early spring months. This road is slow traffic and once across the road leads to the Crystal River and much seating and outdoor fun. The shed is to the south of the property and only partially obstructs the view when you are sitting at the kitchen table. The outdoor furniture is brought out in the late spring, weather permitting. You can dine and relax to the end of October.

Reviewer Comments:

The cottage was a perfect place to ring in the New Year. It is located in the heart of Glen Arbor within walking distance of town and the new bike path. We got to enjoy several hikes/cross country ski outings.

The cottage is larger than it looks in the pictures! It was well appointed and clean. The owners have lots of day to day things available making it feel like home. The king size bed was super comfortable. We were a little worried about the noise from the road since it is sort of close, however, we didn't hear a thing.

We didn't get to enjoy the Crystal River frontage or the fire pit because of the cold but wish we could have. We generally camp but when we come in the winter we will definitely stay here again!

Manager responded on 1/28/2015:

We hope you will come again. We continue to update Foxwood so your next visit will be even better.

The stay was wonderful! If there is any way to give Kathleen (young lady who helped me book it) a raise, please do so! Both my new fiancé and our dog loved the coziness of the house. It was a little on the cold side but we just snuggled together each night. We easily found all of the local wineries and places to eat. We will come back next year as husband and wife. Very, very pleased!

Manager responded on 3/3/2015:

Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials. Please do stay with us again. We will make sure it's warmer for you too and include a bottle of wine to celebrate.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a lovely Thanksgiving at Foxwood! It was quiet and cozy, with an easy to use gas fireplace. We appreciated that the home featured many amenities that rental properties sometimes lack, from towels (nice, thick ones) to kitchen appliances and utensils for cooking a complete Thanksgiving meal. The home was clean, the beds comfortable, and the location was terrific - a very short walk into Glen Arbor, and a short drive from Glen Lake, Sleeping Bear, and other beautiful areas. And the agent from Visit Up North was very friendly and helpful.

Manager responded on 12/2/2014:

Fantastic! We are happy you had a nice getaway. Watch for more updates at Foxwood cottage so your next stay will be even better.

Reviewer Comments:

The Foxwood is so perfect, I wish it was mine.

The location is ideal.

You can walk into the adorable town of Glen Arbor to pick up cookie dough at Anderson's IGA for decadent snacking, buy fantastic souvenirs at several stores - my favorite is M22, eat at The Boonedocks, pick up a pizza from River Front or Bear Paw, or buy an adorable outfit at Haystacks.

You can walk to the bike and kayak rental within the Crystal River Recreational District, but you can use the canoe provided at Foxwood and paddle the Crystal River right from your own riverfront.

We love the short drive to our favorite trailheads and spend all day in the woods. Returning to "our" Glen Arbor vacation home feels fantastic at the end of the day, and it's comforting to have a little dinner, watch a little tv and then sleep in the king sized bed.

I can't recommend it enough.

It's perfect.

Manager responded on 11/20/2014:

We thank you for visiting again and again. We look forward to your next visit at "your" Foxwood soon.

Sleeping Bear Dunes Area – Nestled on either side of the the Sleeping Bear Dunes are the small towns of Glen Arbor & Empire. The streets are lined with quaint shops and great restaurants. This beautiful area features the breathtaking Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore which is a 72,000-acre national park. The big water beaches are flanked by sand dunes that are 40 stories high. The 500? point of Pyramid Point can be seen from space! The sand is perfect for for sun seekers and hikers. This area will take your breath away.

All of that activity surely makes you thirsty so why not grab a beer or a soda and burger at Art’s Tavern in Glen Arbor or Joe’s Friendly Tavern in Empire. Just west of Glen Arbor is the historic town of Glen Haven that boats historical displays, the Coast Guard museum, and a great sandy beach. In Empire, hike the Empire Bluffs trail for amazing views and have a picnic at the public beach. When the snow arrives, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are great ways to enjoy nature. Staying at the Homestead? Downhill skiing is right out your door. All year long, these towns have something to offer!
