FABULOUS NORTH SHORE BIG GLEN HOME. Smack in the middle of the 'SLEEPING BEAR NATIONAL LAKE SHORE', voted Good Morning America's 2011, 'MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE IN AMERICA' 08/2011; see gma/summer.
2012 was the 8th consecutive year we have been fully booked for the entire summer, and we are already booked for the entire 2013 summer. Many guests return year after year (6 out of 8 families for next summer). The house is closed for the winter, and re-opens in June. There has been an overwhelming and early flood of inquiries for 2013. WE ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED FOR SUMMER, 2013.
[Note: ALL WEEKLY RENTALS ARE FROM SATURDAY AT 4:00PM TO THE FOLLOWING SATURDAY AT 10:00AM... this gives us a 6 hour 'turnaround' time to prepare the house & grounds for the next guests. Remember.... MAXIMUM No. GUESTS = 8.]
Please contact us as early as possible. We prioritize by family, then returning guests, and then new guests by date of inquiry and 'fit.' We know that you all need to plan, but we simply cannot accomodate the number of wonderful families that wish a week at Hartheoma, so, please, contact us early, be as patient as you can, and CONTINUE TO MONITOR OUR CALENDAR. The calendar and e-mail links are to the right and also below. Thank you so very much.
This unique, cozy, one-of-a-kind, four bedroom, two bath house/cottage (built in stages between the mid 1940's and early 1950's) was originally owned and occupied by the renowned architect, Harford Field. The house sits on a 30 foot bluff with glorious, unobstructed views of Big Glen. Private stairs take you down to over 110 feet of private frontage on one of the WORLD's (per National Geographic Magazine) most beautiful lakes. This is an all weather home with all amenities up to date. The yard is spacious and private.
Just two 'doors' west of the Glen Lake Yatch Club, the house is a short one mile walk, bike ride, or drive to downtown Glen Arbor shops, restaurants, and tennis courts. The house is literally in the 'center' of all that the area has to offer. The beautiful Crystal River, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Empire Bluffs, and 'Big Lake' beaches are minutes from the house. The water in front of the house is shallow with a hard sand bottom, ideal for young children and adults alike. There is a newer private dock and a mooring for those who have, or wish to rent, boats or jet-skis.
