About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 10)

East Shore Big Glen Lake, 150 feet of sandy beach frontage, waterfront home, near Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Lake Michigan, Leland, Empire, Glen Arbor, located in Leelanau county, beautiful sunsets, boating, fishing, private beach, bonfires, waterskiing, sailing, reading a good book, dune climbs, view of the alligator and family vacations.

Beautiful historic original cottage that brings you back to yesteryear. Third generation ownership with the cottage built in 1923 by our grandfather. Family owned and operated historically preserved with the minimum of modern conveniences to make this a vacation that your family will talk about for generations. The cottage is clean and well maintained but you will still have to wash your own dishes if you are not eating out. Hand painted murals and curtains, open beamed ceilings, a large kitchen and eating area with a large lakeside screened in porch ideal for big family gatherings truly define this Unit.

In this Cottage on the second floor there are two bedrooms with a set of double beds each and one bedroom with a set of bunk beds then there is a large sleeping porch with beautiful lakeside windows and four single beds. Our cottages all have nice sized living rooms with fire place and cable TV and internet access.

Down at the lake is a fire pit and sunning deck ideal for families to gather and enjoy the sun and fun, the kids can keep busy building sand castles and running in the water on 150 feet of beautiful sand beach frontage. We have a 110’ dock that gets you out on the lake that also has a nice sunning area. Our side of Glen Lake has a sandy bottom and a gradual incline so it is ideal for young children who may not be able to swim and is also great for those who enjoy swimming and playing in the water and for those who are just water bugs. Be prepared to grab a lawn chair and enjoy the beach, a book, and a glass of wine, a beautiful sunset and roasted marshmallows.

This property has another cottage available, please contact us for additional information!

About The Owner

My grandfather on a summer field camp while he was an undergraduate at the University of Michigan in 1920 looked upon alligator hill from what is now known as Old Settlers Park, and fell in love with the beauty of Glen Lake he then purchased a 1000 feet of frontage. It was passed down to my father and now to me and my two brothers and one sister. Our family has certainly enjoyed Glen Lake throughout many many years.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1923

Vacationing at the Best Place On Earth

  • 4 of 5

Just got back from a week at this cottage. Very well stocked, probably the best I've been to. We love the older cottages on the lake and this one is very well maintained. Beautiful deck and dock on the lake. Safe lake for kids. Plenty of room indoors, too. Definitely would like to vacation here again.

For True Glen Lake People!

  • 5 of 5

Sunsets that bow down behind Alligator Hill ~ need I say more? This beautiful historic cottage home translates into an inner harmony that can only be found in this special area. The owner understands beach life and is accommodating to any need. We highly recommend R&R at this house! It is truly an elixir.
