Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

This fantastic little cottage that is available year round offers a whole lot of charm right in "downtown" Glen Arbor. Set in a story book wooded setting and right across the street from the Crystal River it does not get any better than this. The deck side of the house offers quiet dining and relaxing with a wooded view and a spotting of occasional deer and fox as you relax and dine on the deck. If you are visiting in the fall or winter curl up with a book and a glass of wine in front of the gas fireplace. So cozy you will not want to leave.

Foxwood has recently been updated and features 2 bedrooms plus a small loft for kids and 1 bathroom with tub shower combo.

Sleeps up to 5 with 1 King, 1 Queen and twin bed provided in loft. Eat in kitchen with dishwasher and everything you need to prepare meals. Walk out to deck from the kitchen. There is a washer/dryer tucked in behind closed doors in the kitchen too. Hardwood floors through out.

Open year round

Enjoy the beautiful pristine water of the Crystal River across the street with the provided canoe and kayak . Swing out on the river on "tree" swing. Kick back in the colorful Adirondeck chairs on the river as well as a firepit all just steps from your door.

Walk to Riverfront Pizza, Western Avenue Grill or Boones or taste local cherry wines at Cherry Republic. Town is located just .2 miles from the house. Grocery store, gift shops, and coffee shop are just a few of the things that make your visit easy. Bike rentals are just down the street.No need to drive to the "big" city! Walk to Lake Michigan and watch the sun go down. Gas grill and firepit. Cable/DVD, WIFI. Gas fireplace.

Central air conditioning. Your well-mannered pet is welcome. Linens included. No Smoking.

Glen Arbor is located between Leland and Empire along the M-22 corridor. Travel north and enjoy stops at Lake Michigan beaches. There is a great spot about 1/2 mile north on Lake Michigan that is a perfect spot to take a swim. Hiking trails at Pyramid Point, dining at local diners and sandwich shops, farm markets and much more are a few of the many exciting things you can visit. Travel south to the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Haven, Pierce Stocking Scenic drive as well as dining and shopping. Traverse City is 30 minutes away.

Short stays are permitted during prime summer dates, however, deposits will not be charged for reservations totaling less than 7 nights that are booked online until the reservation is confirmed by Visit Up North the next business day.

Reviewer Comments:

Foxwood is our favorite place to stay in the fall. The house is clean and cozy and close to everything. The only down side is the 10 AM checkout, it's a little hard to get everyone up, fed and out that early. Otherwise, it was perfect.

Reviewer Comments:

The cabin was clean, cozy, comfortable, and just minutes away from many awesome activities. We took advantage of the canoe and went up and down the crystal clear river across the street. We used the fireplace in the cabin everyday and made several bonfires outside. I love the fact that we could do laundry as we went and that there was a full kitchen. The slower place in this area is very nice. We will definitely be coming back for another stay!

Reviewer Comments:

The Foxwood continues to be the only rental we will consider for our 2-3 trips per year to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. I cannot express enough times or in enough ways how perfect the home and its location are. First, it is pet friendly. If my dogs can't come with me, I'm not going. I appreciate Foxwood's and Visit Up North's policies that allow me to enjoy all that the Sleeping Bear Dunes area has. We try to leave it at least as clean and neat as we find it so that it can remain pet friendly! Second, we walk into town every day because the location is so perfect. You can not only shop or eat at several restaurants, you can walk to Lake Michigan, all from the front door. Third, with the Crystal River across the street, and a canoe, kayak, fire ring, adirondack chairs, and swing, you can be on water, in water, and enjoying water every single day. It rained A LOT during our latest visit, but I didn't even care. We were cozy and warm in the Foxwood with the gas fireplace on all day. I even worked on a puzzle that was in the games closet! I also was able to walk to several stores - Haystacks, Northwoods Gifts, Cottonseed, Cherry Republic, and Momentum - which were having end of season sales, and get a lot of Christmas shopping done! Unique gifts, great prices, and a great use of my time. There is never a bad time to rent the Foxwood, and the staff at Visit Up North are always thoughtful and accommodating.

Map

Sleeping Bear Dunes Area – Nestled on either side of the the Sleeping Bear Dunes are the small towns of Glen Arbor & Empire. The streets are lined with quaint shops and great restaurants. This beautiful area features the breathtaking Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore which is a 72,000-acre national park. The big water beaches are flanked by sand dunes that are 40 stories high. The 500? point of Pyramid Point can be seen from space! The sand is perfect for for sun seekers and hikers. This area will take your breath away.

All of that activity surely makes you thirsty so why not grab a beer or a soda and burger at Art’s Tavern in Glen Arbor or Joe’s Friendly Tavern in Empire. Just west of Glen Arbor is the historic town of Glen Haven that boats historical displays, the Coast Guard museum, and a great sandy beach. In Empire, hike the Empire Bluffs trail for amazing views and have a picnic at the public beach. When the snow arrives, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are great ways to enjoy nature. Staying at the Homestead? Downhill skiing is right out your door. All year long, these towns have something to offer!
