MURPHY'S GLEN- BIG GLEN LAKE WATERFRONT

Glen Arbor House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR/3 BA Home

Sleeping Bear Dunes recently received the title of 'Most Beautiful Place in America' from Good Morning America! Glen Lake is highly regarded as one of the most spectacular lakes in the Great Lakes region.

This is a unique mid-century contemporary ranch style vacation home with a finished walk out basement. Our home is a spacious 2,900 sq ft. We have 100 feet of private waterfront on a deep 300 ft. lot. There is a 150 foot long dock with sunning section and a mooring for boats. Water is crystal clear, perfect for swimming, with a sandy lake bottom. Two full-sized decks and a nice bonfire pit in backyard. Many picture windows and sliding glass doors allow a phenomenal view of the lake from indoors. Newly finished basement includes ping-pong, card, and pool tables. The nautical-themed basement also has a cozy fireplace and great CD player sound-system.

Our home is just a quick walk, bike ride, or drive from the lovely shops and restaurants of downtown Glen Arbor. We are in very close proximity to the beautiful Empire Bluffs, Crystal River, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Lake Michigan.

3 Bedrooms (plus additional room with 2 twin beds)

3 Bathrooms (2 showers total)

We kindly ask for no smoking or pets in our home. Thank you.

A GEM ON GLEN LAKE

  • 5 of 5
My family of four (two young adult children) stayed at Murphy's Glen and had a wonderful time! We were personally greeted upon arrival and shown around the home. The house was immaculate to say the least. The location is simply beautiful! Glen Lake is crystal clear and we commented several times during the week that, if we didn't know better, we would swear we were staying in the Caribbean. The downstairs "fun center" is a blast. We rented bikes right in Glen Arbor and rode over to Glen Haven and the Sand Dunes. The weather was a little cold but we did have a chance to try out the kayaks on site a few times and couldn't believe how tranquil the lake was. The two swans that feed out near the dock daily add to the beauty. So much to do and see we cannot wait to return to Murphy's Glen on beautiful Glen Lake.

LABOR DAY STAY

Ed has a wonderful house that is impeccably maintained. We very much enjoyed our stay at Murphy's Glen. There were plenty of things to do indoors and out. Glen Lake is our favorite lake up here. The water is beautiful and the lake is never crowded. Murphy's Glen is ideally situated close to everything. Overall, we give it an A+.

SUMMER 2012 AT MURPHY'S GLEN

Summer 2012 at Murphy's Glen
  • 5 of 5
Just spent 2 weeks in July at this great spot. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed all of the fun things to do at the house much less the ones located close by ... I think we did it all ...pontoon boats to rent, lots of kayaking, hit the Dunes, shopping in a lovely little town, discovered the great meat and wine store in Cedar, the spa at the Homestead (2x!!), King salmon charter out of Fishtown, Farmers Markets, Art Fair, Dinners at Blu, Labecasse and Funestrada. Loved sunning by the water and floating in it. Enjoyed cooking on the grill and in the large kitchen. The house is peaceful, comfortable and spacious. We only had one rainy day to play in the giant downstairs! The owner is really nice and easy to work with. Add some more outside chairs ... we'll be back with friends! Thanks so very much, P and D
