Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

There is nothing like spending time on Big Glen Lake in Glen Arbor! Orchard Oaks Cottage sits back from the road on a huge treed lot, making it an ideal location if you are bringing the kids. The water is across the street but has very easy access with nice sandy frontage plus a dock (dock removed early Sept). Quaint chalet style home with a vintage vibe features 3 bedrooms (one is a loft-style room) and 1.5 baths. On the main level, there are 2 BD each with a Queen bed. The upstairs BD has 2 trundles (4 twins) The loft area has a twin bed. An abundance of windows let in the great views of the lake and sunshine. Flat panel TV/DVD in living room + Cable and WIFI. Your well mannered pet is welcome. We are sorry, but outdoor fires are not allowed except in the BBQ. Dock removed late Sept.

Located just outside the village of Glen Arbor, you are an easy trip to shopping, dining and all the fun local activities in town. You can rent bicycles and canoes right in town. There is also a miniature golf course & canoe rental on the Crystal River for some family fun. Sleeping Bear Dunes and Lake Michigan are just minutes away. Located 30 minutes to Traverse City, 15 minutes to Leland. An area rich in history and natural beauty - you will not be disappointed.

This is a Saturday - Saturday rental for prime summer weeks. Short stays available off peak.

Reviewer Comments:

This home is in a great location, easy to get to downtown, Sleeping Bear, Traverse, Suttons Bay. The lake access is across M22, a 45 mph busy road. The dock was nice and there's a small platform with 2 chairs but no beach and no yard by the house, either (just sand and weeds and driveway). There are about 20 steps to get down to the dock, so not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. It's older and VERY musty, like many old cabins are. If you have allergies I would not recommend it. There are beds to accommodate 9 and the upstairs beds are newer and therefore smelled a bit better, but the 2 downstairs bedrooms are very musty. The furniture is worn, couch was broken, and generally it felt like the place could use a thorough dusting. For the price I would've rather gotten a place without lake access and gone to the beach, especially since the Glen Lake access is good for swimming but not lounging. I didn't need help from the rental company but they were prompt in all communication prior to our stay and provided the information and details we needed.

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our the location and view in this place. It is placed in a beautiful and convenient location. Lots of activities around the area. The house has 2 queen beds downstairs and an attic with bunk beds. Beds upstairs aren't recommended for adults. They are small and have plastics all over that makes them really uncomfortable. It also has 1.5 bathrooms that you should consider when booking. I wouldn't stay in this property again as it has a great amount of very Old books in libraries in the living room and the bedroom where I was sleeping that made most of our guests sick. It smells very dusty inside. Not suitable for alergic or asmathic people.

The home was exactly as described; no surprises! It was clean, great location, and the water had easier access than I expected. We easily slid two kayaks down to the water, and carried them back up, without any problems. All in all, a perfect trip! Our dogs enjoyed it too!

Reviewer Comments:

We wanted a few days of R & R up north. This is our second rental through you. The house near Glen Arbor provided a great location for our local day trips. The house was inviting and dog friendly, just enough property for them. Since it's across the street from the lake (with access) and the dock was out of the water, I don't know how it would be as a summer rental. But for our fall getaway, it was great.
