The sand and water stretch as far as you can see in either direction and which you'll enjoy from the house, the screened porch or the front deck.
Meals can be served at the dining room table or on the front deck picnic table. Comfortable chaise lounges are on the deck for reading or watching the epic sunsets. Beach chairs are also available for your enjoyment on the beach, which is steps away from the house.
The village of Glen Arbor is a very short walk from this private road and offers a wonderfully stocked grocery store, multiple dining options, shops and outdoor live music every night of the summer.
Access to the 27 mile Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail is only a short walk or bike ride from the house and is a great place for running, walking and biking and experiencing the natural beauty of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Bike rentals are available in Glen Arbor.

The vacation we took to Glen Arbor to stay at this house was incredible. The location is ideal, and the photos of the house underestimate how beautiful and charming it is! The property managers were so sweet, they welcomed us with baked goods and a smile and they were available on call whenever we needed them. We will definitely be returning!!
The place is great, in ideal location. Beautiful views and glen arbor is the perfect "up north" town.
However, the bathrooms have carpet from the 80's/70's and that is a polite estimate. Bathrooms should never have carpet to begin with. The carpet in the bathrooms is shaggy and very unhygenic. The house is clean everywhere else but stepping out of the shower onto 30 year old thick carpet gives me the creeps.
Would love to come back or reccommend if this small change could be made. Had a few guests visit during our week and they all seperatley commented on this fact. Otherwise everyone loves the property.
It is a very small change to make for a beautiful property. I would reccommend to anybody if this sanitary change was made. My friends that came to visit said the same.
As the owner of this property, I’m pleased that my home on the beach of Sleeping Bear Bay was recognized to be ideal. I agree that it is the perfect house in the perfect location with the best views. Over the past few years the house has been renovated and upgraded with new granite kitchen and bathroom countertops, new sinks and fixtures, new appliances, new windows and plantation shutters and many other updates. The carpeting is professionally cleaned each year and bath and shower mats are provided in both bathrooms for guests. It is unfortunate that this review reflected a concern, and equally unfortunate that it was posted six months after the visit.
Idyllic vacation property!
The pictures don't do this justice! It is far prettier then average, comfortable, and the ideal location! We had one of the best vacations ever here. We rode our bikes into town for ice cream and shopping. The kayaking was amazingly beautiful! The dunes and Pyramid point were breathtaking. We had campfires on the beach with our cherry wine from Cherry Republic. Amazing sunsets and also very private. Our biggest complaint, having to leave....
On beautiful Sleeping Bear Bay within minutes of the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Lakeshore and Dune Climb, This is a northern oasis for the person who wants to get away from it all. Walk along the white sand beaches or take a short walk into downtown Glen Arbor to enjoy the many great restaurants, art galleries, activities and shopping.
Other Activities: golf, canoeing, kayaking, tubing, hiking, cycling.
