Have you ever just wanted to step back in time and escape from it all? At Brookhaven Resort on the beautiful, sapphire blue, Big Glen Lake, you can have a little piece of the old days! One of five updated cottages share access to 150' of water frontage, tennis court, basketball court, & row boats plus pickle ball and volleyball. Make new friends when you gather around the shared firepit for s'mores and sunsets overlooking Alligator Hill in the Sleeping Bear Dunes area. 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom cottage. At the dead end of a quiet street. 1 level, faces West. Sleeps 4.

1 Queen and 2 twins. Full kitchen (no dishwasher), charcoal grill, and picnic table. WIFI. No TV, no phone, no worries at this peaceful location only minutes to the village of Glen Arbor.

You can hear the water roll onto the shore, the sound of the trees rustling and the birds calling. Have breakfast overlooking the water which is only steps from the cottage. 10 minutes to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Crystal River canoeing or Lake Michigan.

Non-smoking, No air conditioning. Sorry, no pets.

This is a Saturday - Saturday rental for prime summer weeks.

Reviewer Comments:

The view was absolutely gorgeous! We loved that the cabin was steps from the lake. When we got there the lock box was detached and the key visible and door was already unlocked. The overall cabin was nice, however I was a little surprised that it wasn't painted. It seemed like drywall was put up, primer put on and done. Could use some paint. The step to the house was wobbly. Again, just something simple and cheap to affix so it's not a hazard. We used a boat in the morning to have coffee on the lake, totally loved it. We would definitely stay at this place again.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a great time! The walls were paneling and were painted so it isn't primer it is just painted older paneling, and we will let the owner know your recommendation on the stair.

It turned cold the day we got up there but Mr. K come out to the fire with us, took us for a ride on his boat. The cabins were perfect, small, cute, cozy, and basic but yet had everything you needed to cook indoors or out. Clean cabin and area. Great beach for kids, shallow water. I called ahead to se if I could bring a Prius load of firewood and stack it by my cabin and they had no problem with it.

Very scenic and relaxed setting. Amazing view of the lake. Accommodations were below expectations. Microwave with no outlet to plug in to. No dish soap?

Reviewer Comments:

The location and lake access is great, but the cabin could use thorough cleaning. We have stayed in rustic places, so I am not picky about insects and a place being spotless. With that being said, this could use a better cleaning service. My daughter found a pair of men's underwear under her bed upon our arrival and there was a miller moth hatch while we there. The cottage was closed with no lights on and we came home to dozens of millers in each room. They hatch from eggs in the cottage due to poor cleaning.

Reviewer Comments:

We went on vacation from June 14--June 21, not realizing how chilly it could be in Northern Michigan in June. This was our first trip to this area. The scenery is beautiful and Glen Lake is the perfect size. This location has wonderful sunsets. We did not use the provided boats as much as we would have if the weather had been warmer. The cottage needed some repairs. Be advised, these buildings are old.
