About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This charming cottage is situated on a large corner lot just one and a half blocks off the Main Street of downtown Glen Arbor. This makes it an easy walk to the best shops and restaurants in the area.

Large palladium windows offer a beautiful view with plenty of natural light. A flag stone patio, fire pit and spacious deck are fully equipped for comfortable entertaining and easy outdoor dining. An outdoor shower provides comfort and enjoyment from a fun-packed day in the water or at the beach.

The Crystal river is located just a stones throw away, with access to fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Of course, Lake Michigan is a two minute walk or a quick drive from the cottage giving you access to multiple beach sites and beautiful vistas.

About Rick Vulgamott

We have been enjoying Glen Arbor and the surrounding area for over 25 years. While living in Boston we chose this area for our destination wedding to share our love for Michigan with family and friends from all over. Spending summer vacations and raising 2 children on Lake Michigan we finally found the perfect slice of heaven in Glen Arbor and called it Northeness. We hope you will enjoy our home and this beautiful area as much as we have.

Rick Vulgamott purchased this cottage in 2006

Lovely Memorial Day Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Rick and Suzanne's house is simply lovely. Wonderful layout, great kitchen. We found little thoughtful details everywhere: a Petosky stone in the bathroom stone floor, a state of Michigan rock at the entrance. We used the hammock, the grill, the outdoor table, the firepit! Easy walk to Glen Arbor. Rick answered quickly when we asked about best beaches -- and we loved them too. (end of Bay road and Glen Haven FYI!). Quite, convenient to Glen Arbor. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Lovely, immaculate home

  • 4 of 5

My family was in Glen Arbor for a family reunion. Northerners was a perfect central location for all the other attendees. We slept 5 very comfortably. However the living space is very limited, with only one couch and two chairs., and no table for dining or games. Fortunately, when the weather cooperates, there is lots of space outdoors.

Relaxing week at Northerness

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Northerness. As a active family with 2 young children, we wanted to be close to town and activities and have enough space in a kid friendly home. This home delivered a wonderful vacation for us. We enjoyed the quiet, out in the woods feeling of this home and the close proximity to town. We walked to town, biked to the dune climb on the new bike path, visited the beautiful beaches, and were able to relax outside at the fire pit (while still hearing the kids on our monitors.) This home was beautiful, clean, and had all the household tools you could hope for and more.

Thank you Northerness.
