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.

Reviewer Comments:

Of all the options to stay in the Glen Arbor and Traverse City areas, Foxwood is our absolute favorite. We have been visiting the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore at least twice each year since 1999, and we've stayed nearly everywhere. We've camped, we've stayed at The Homestead in their rooms as well as their rental condos, we've stayed at luxury homes in Traverse City, and we've rented other homes in Glen Arbor when Foxwood was already booked. For the last 9 years or so, we schedule our Sleeping Bear Dunes visits around Foxwood's availability! While we know Visit Up North has many wonderful options, for us, Foxwood is the only option. It's just perfect. It's the perfect size, and it's in the perfect location. Visit Up North always makes our time in Glen Arbor stress free, and Foxwood's amenities of the Adirondack chairs and canoe right on the bank of the Crystal River make us never want to leave. Our Coonhound, Atticus, LOVES sitting in the canoe and being "voyageured" along the river. If you've never experienced the Crystal River, you must. It's as clear and beautiful as its name suggests, and Foxwood gives the perfect view and chance to live on the Crystal River in Glen Arbor, Michigan for as long as you want...until it's my family's turn again. We'll be back, again and again and again.

Reviewer Comments:

This is our second time staying at Foxwood. The property description is accurate regarding layout, location, and amentitites. The house was cozy, clean and well-maintained located just minutes from coffee, wine tasting, restaurants and a grocery store. Property manager provided great customer services during booking process and throughout the stay. Upon arrival there was a strong odor of sulfur or minerals in the kitchen and when running the water throughout the weekend. Also, the furnace is quite loud and very apparent when turning on and off. I would also recommend some sort of pedestrian/yield sign to place at entrance so motorist on M22 are aware of folks crossing the very busy road from the house to the waterfront.

The house was very clean and met all our needs for a two night stay. We really have no complaints. Only wish the firewood across the street by the river was dry because a campfire by the right Saturday afternoon would have been a great touch because of the mild temps that day.

Great spot for a cozy winter get away for 2 couples. The bedrooms were comfortable, kitchen well equipped and we particularly liked the living room with fire place. Ideal for relaxing with your morning coffee and planning the day.

Our family had a lovely winter weekend stay. Thank you for opening your home to us. The home met our needs; we enjoyed a couple of the games in the closet, too! I also appreciated the attentiveness of the rental company. They called the day prior to our stay, as well as during. Even though it was a voicemail left to ensure everything was okay, it was appreciated to let me know they were available if we needed anything. Overall, we agreed that we would stay here again!

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!
