Our family has been a guest at Glen Lodge for over 20+ years. We have enjoyed all thre units over the years. Each unit is fully equipped for a comfortable stay-if not ask and you shall receive! Ed and his family is more than accommodating at making sure your stay is enjoyable.
The location of the lodge is ideal. Just minutes to Sleeping Bear Dunes as well as downtown Glen Arbor which are both easily accessible by car, foot or bicycles which are provided at the Lodge.
The water is within steps from each unit. A floating dock is further out in the water which is used for sunbathing, resting or just taking a book to get away from it all!
The lake can be enjoyed in the evening for outdoor dining, with grills and patio tables available in each unit. Later in the evening the fun continues at the large outdoor fire pit which is shared by all the units. Nothing better thansome of the stories we have heard from Ed as well as a number of guests throughout the years!! Our children have had great childhood memories at Glen Lodge and now as adults as they have included their spouses in a fun week!
Don't miss out on Glen Lodge.
We have stayed here very summer for the last 3 years . Absolutely love it !
Walk out the door and you are just steps to beautiful crystal turquoise blue Glen Lake . Clean, clear gorgeous...shallow entry , perfect for launching my kayak . Why do I need to go to the Caribbean ??
Enjoy kayaking, swimming , boating , just " hanging out " by the fire pit. Lots of road biking in the area and also hiking trails in Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore...Suites have nice size living room with fold out couch, comfortable bedroom & bath, and kitchen amenities if you feel like cooking ... Ed and his family have always shown us a very warm welcome . Glen Lodge is 5 minutes from Glen Arbor , 5 minutes from Sleeping Bear Dunes Dune Climb , 30-45 minutes from everything in Traverse City with all the restaurants and wineries in the area. Also lots of great little towns to explore near the lodge . Peaceful , beautiful getaway ... Just book it !
This coming Labor day (2017) will be our 7th year staying with Ed at the Glen Lodge! He and his family make it such a wonderful experience for us! We are not "repeat" vacation people, but this place is so magical that it keeps us coming back year after year! It is our favorite vacation spot and the best way to close out the summer! You can rent out the entire place with family and friends....which we have done....or just rent one of the units and that works perfect too! It truly is an awesome place and an awesome experience!
Last summer marked the twentieth consecutive year that we have stayed at Glen Lodge with our extended family and it never fails to be the highlight of our summer. The Ricker family has always provided exceptional hospitality and made us feel as if we were one of their own. My family would mutiny if the trip to Glen Lake was not planned for the summer!
We've stayed with the Ricker family a few times. Always a wonderful relaxing vacation. Beautiful area, breathtaking sites and great food. Cant beat the location, near the dunes, near Glen Arbor, close to wineries and shops. Hiking thru Sleeping Bear Dunes is priceless and Glen Haven is a charming stop full of history and a great museum.
We have stayed at the Glen Lodge many, many times over the past 20+ years. The suites are always clean and stocked with everything needed for a great family vacation! This is one of the best locations in the area!
Not only is it on Big Glen Lake, but it is within minutes of the Dune Climb, the Heritage Bike Trail, Lake Michigan and all of the fun shops Glen Arbor has to offer! Thank you to Ed and your family for a great vacation experience!
