About Carolyn Damstra

The Muggs live in East Lansing, MI and are fierce Spartan fans!

Carolyn Damstra purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Carolyn Damstra chose Glen Arbor

We knew this was 'The Country's Most Beautiful Place' long before it got that moniker. The air is fresher, lakes crystal clear, and the quiet will bring a lasting peace.

What makes this cottage unique

Location is great! Something for everyone--beach time, hiking, biking, kayaking, wine touring, or just relaxing on our hammock. The cottage is simple but still has everything you need to be comfortable.

Beautiful spot!

Beautiful Spot! Woodsy. Feels secluded, but right across the street from a nice, public park on Big Glen Lake! Nice, big deck! Great for families! Very reasonable price.

Comfortable roomy cabin in a great location

  • 3 of 5
There was plenty of room for my family of four. One of the beds had a fairly poor mattress, otherwise comfortable. Location was awesome, one block from my family's lake house. Steep driveway, and no view but nice deck.
I would definitely rent this cottage again.

Good Location.....but

  • 2 of 5
Good location. Needs to be thoroughly cleaned. Cottage is old and not kept up. Furniture was worn and dirty. Gas grill did not work, weeds growing everywhere. I would not rent again. Waste of money

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you did not have a good experience. The cottage is an older, classic "up north" cottage and we offer it at a below market rate to make it affordable. We have replaced the grill with a new one. In the spirit of preserving the native plants and natural landscape of the Sleeping Bear Dunes area, we try to have minimal impact on the forested landscape surrounding the cottage.

Great Cottage! Very family friendly and clean!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was perfect for our two families. We were very comfortable with 4 adults and 4 young children. It was very and private, but also just across the street from a little park as well as Glen Lake. Thank you so much!
