Glen Arbor vacation 2009

  • 5 of 5

Truly a home away from home and a gem to any family looking for comfortable, clean, and lovely accommodations  Everything the owners have described about this property is 100% accurate and then some!!  Very clean, spacious and generously furnished inside and out.  The atmosphere is very peaceful and private even though it is close to town. (which is a big plus as you can walk to anything and everything in minutes, including a five minute stroll to the lake shore for sunsets!)  Ron and Diane are welcoming and make sure you have everything you need to relax and enjoy your stay.We highly recommend this property for your northern Michigan vacation!!!!!!Thanks again Ron and Diane!!!

Beautiful, spacious home in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The listing description accurately describes the location, layout and amenities. The location is perfect - an easy walk to the hiking trails of Sleeping Bear dunes and an easy walk to downtown and Lake Michigan. The home is very clean and extremely well-maintained. It's a beautiful home! The Calsbeeks went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable in their home. They were extremely accommodating to our dog and even let us use their dog bowls and bed. Not to mention, trusting us to allow our dog in the house. Additionally, they welcomed our daughter by allowing us to use their pack-n-play and high chair. Any time we had a question, our questions were answered promptly. The home was large enough to allow everyone in our group privacy and their own bathroom, but quaint enough to give us shared space to hang out together. We need a lot of cooking at home and the well-stocked kitchen saved us time and money. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to vacation in the Glen Arbor area.

Perfect is the best way to describe this home and the people who own it. The house is beautiful inside and out. There is a brand new kitchen that is wonderful to cook in (if you want to). The location in town makes it just a quick walk to Lake Michigan, Glen Lake, shops and many restaurants. Ron and DIane are very welcoming and go out of their way to make you feel right at home. We look forward to next summer.

Hitchcock's "Happy Place"

  • 5 of 5

The very day we leave we start thinking about next year! It is a wonderful home. Very comfortable with everything you could want or need. It is so great that everyone (including children) can walk to the playground, activities and restaurants. Quiet and peaceful but close to everything. The beauty in the area is unbeatable with so many ways to enjoy it. It continues to be the high spot of my year.

Thank you to the Calsbeeks!

Excellent Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this home clean, well-supplied and comfortable, but it is beautifully landscaped and an easy walk to the center of town. It is located next to a lovely garden shop that has live jazz music on Tuesday and Friday evenings. It was fantastic to sit on the porch with a glass of wine and enjoy the music. Also, there are public tennis courts a half block away. A colorful and friendly group shows up on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings for pick -up games of doubles.

We hope to make it back next summer!
