She was a 'tower woman.' She felt a deep affinity with women in Irish ballads 'who leaned from stone towers over tossing seas.' Everyone dreams of a room of their own, right?

Within the boundaries of Sleeping Bear National Lake Shore, hardly any changes have taken place in the last two decades. For example here are no fast food franchises and only one stop sign in Glen Arbor.

Perfect getaway for our "mini-moon!"

Perfect getaway for our "mini-moon!"
  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Bear's Knoll Cottage for a too-quick three night stay, and I haven't stopped thinking about it ever since. From the moment we arrived, we were made welcome by the owner with a smile, fresh baked brownies, and a bowl of glorious Michigan cherries. We sat on the deck as much as possible, enjoying local wines and the views -- including several visiting deer! The kitchen was excellently stocked with cook's tools, and the bookcases were overflowing with sooooo many enticing titles. I cannot say enough about our visit, and we're looking forward to spending our REAL honeymoon there next year. Thank you for an idyllic interlude!

Relaxing and Romantic

  • 5 of 5
This spot was the perfect respite for a romantic weekend away. The location is ideal...very close to town, but away from the business of the tourist spots.

The communication before our arrival was perfect. We received emails with detailed driving directions, as well as suggested activities and dining choices. We arrived late in the evening, after dark. Judith had the entire condo lit up for us, with smooth jazz music playing on the tv. So nice to walk into the condo with those touches...I began to relax right away.

The condo is well-equipped with anything and everything we needed. Even things we didn't know we needed; fresh brownies and apples in the fridge, and s'mores fixins on the kitchen island! The setting was perfect for fall. The condo is nestled in fairly dense woods, and the colors were starting to turn. It was cool out, and so we were able to enjoy a fire in the fireplace. There is a great bookcase with a very large selection of books and magazines. It was nice to take a breather and read while enjoying a cup of tea from a variety of teas that are provided.

This was a great way to spend a weekend away from the pressures of our regular work week, and the condo was the perfect place. We were able to enjoy service and amenities that you just can't get from staying in a hotel. We appreciate the great care Judith, and hope to be staying with you again soon!

Wonderful fall retreat

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I needed a place to get away and get some studying done. Judith's place was perfect. A quiet retreat, nestled in the northern pines was just marvelous. The location couldn't be any better---a short walk to take in the lake Michigan sunsets, and a few minutes from town worked well for eating out when we wanted to. The place itself is quite charming and tastefully decorated. You won't be making a mistake in choosing this one---we plan on returning some time in the future.

Gorgeous respite

  • 5 of 5
I was shocked by how beautiful Sleeping Bear Dunes is. Glen Arbor is such a quaint, relaxing town, and Judy's property is in the heart of the most gorgeous part. It's nestled in the forest and only a 5 minute walk from the private, well-kept beach. We stayed in the upstairs portion. It was impeccably clean and inviting. The kitchen is stocked with every dish and utensil you could ever need. There are ample towels and linens and the in-unit washer/dryer was a blessing after those sweaty dune runs.

It's so peaceful there that 2 deer came right up to us as we left for the beach. Within minutes of arrival my nerves calmed and I was more relaxed than I'd been all year. My boyfriend and I loved our weeklong getaway; it was the absolutely best way to celebrate my 30th birthday. I cherish our experience and I hope we can return soon.
