We purchased our Bjorn cottage when our children were young and it is our 'happy place'. I grew up on the east coast of norwegian heritage and we were looking for a special place that we could share with our children. My husband told me that once I discovered the Big Lake that I would love it. Lake Michigan and especially Sleeping Bear Bay is now my ocean. We all love it here and have many cherished memories. It is the perfect place for a family to enjoy nature and each other. I have a blog called Breathing Space, all about our love for Glen Arbor.

The perfect location! Private yet close to the beach and to town. Private beach access on beautiful Sleeping Bear Bay right down the street.

Large private deck in back of house. Walk to beach and town.

We stayed at the Bjorn Cottage with our family which included several teenagers and everyone had enough space to feel comfortable. We loved having access to the beach (short walk), ability to walk to town for food and shopping, and the short ride to biking trails and dune hikes. We also drove about 30 minutes to a kayak trip down the Platte River. This area of the state is truly a "slice of heaven" and the Bjorn Cottage embraces that beauty with its natural decor and woodlike setting. The owners are very easy to communicate with and helpful. You can't go wrong with this rental!

Great spot!

We absolutely loved the house. The owners wre great to deal with and provided helpful information. The master bedroom and bath are especially spacious. The outdoor shower is a great addition for cleaning off after the beach and just for fun. The back deck and front porch also add to the flexibility of being indoors and outdoors while there--especially if there are children.. Perhaps th best feature, however, is the location. It is a short walk to the beach and a short walk to the shops and stores of Glen Arbor. The bicycle rental shop is a long block away and we rented bikes for the week and rode the great trail to Sleeping Bear Dunes every day. We had a great vacation.
