Dunn's Farm, a Centennial Farm owned by the same family for almost 150 years, is located on beautiful Big Glen Lake, rated by National Geographic as one of the 3 most beautiful lakes in the world! With 1,000 front feet of sandy shoreline, swimming and water sports are inviting for every member of the family. Although the property is no longer farmed, the open spaces created provide for never ending outdoor activities. Our rental months are June, July, August and the first two weeks in September. We rent weekly from Saturday to Saturday.
The Leelanau Peninsula is known for its cherry orchards and vineyards, and the welcoming villages of Glen Arbor, Suttons Bay, Leeland and Northport cater to summer tourists whether shopping, dining or just meandering through these picturesque towns.
The Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore and sand dunes which are only 5 miles away provide miles of hiking and climbing, as well as stretches of Lake Michigan shoreline. Or you may never find the need to leave Dunn's Farm, as the sunrises offer the promise of another memorable day on the water, steaks or whitefish roasted on the grill and an almost never ending sunset as you watch the embers of your beach fire slowly die.
