About Amy Woodward

I grew up on this property and just love the area. It's the best lake in the world and the best place for a family vacation.

Amy Woodward purchased this cottage in 1976

Why Amy Woodward chose Sleeping Bear Dunes

My parents vacationed here when I was young, and I fell in love with the lake and the area. Now my daughter Amy is managing the rentals.

What makes this cottage unique

It is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, and I have looked! Yet it is surrounded by a simplicity characterized by small towns that grow large only in the summer.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

We were at Glen Lake Cottages in August, continuing a family tradition of many years. This year the bike/walking path between Empire and Glen Arbor was up and available, right across the road and easily accessible. We hope next year to get three generations together as one of the little ones who has grown up vacationing here now has a little one of her own.

We loved our stay here. It is a great place for a family vacation and the water is excellent for our young kids. I'd recommend this for anyone who wants a cottage vacation!!
