About Aggie

We bought this lake house when we fell in love with Little Glen Lake. It is a second home and we live/work in Traverse City. Since we cannot use it everyday we decided to share our love of Glen Lake/Sleeping Bear Dunes with others.

Aggie purchased this house in 2012

Why Aggie chose Sleeping Bear Dunes

This is a well kept, up-to-date property that has private frontage on Little Glen Lake with your own beach, dock and crystal blue water. You can walk out a long way and the water only comes up to your knees which makes it ideal for children.

What makes this house unique

Private setting away from the road which make this property ideal for families with children.

Awesome property, awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Great house, great beach, great owner. House is very well equipped with everything you need, tons of dishes, great cooking tools, new appliances, etc. Whole house was very clean, sound system was fantastic, grill was top notch, and they even stocked the firewood for the fire pit! Beach is sandy and shallow for 100 yards, perfect for smaller kids. Huge deck and great sunsets! Love love love this place, would go back in a heartbeat!

Beautiful Michigan Views

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely breathtaking. From the view of the lake, to the view of the surrounding scenery. Very clean and it really gives you that home away from home feel. Many things to do from relaxing, and swimming to enjoying company around the fire. The owners are extremely nice and welcoming to all.

Michigan - Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect !!!! This is Michigan – Hawaii like you never seen before!!!!

From the amazing views of the Lake in all the shades of blue and turquoise to the beautiful forest and mountains surrounding the Lake.

Unforgettable views. You can see the Dunes right from the house.

All of the furniture’s are and in brand new shape. Outside patio is huge and beautifully furnished.

You can relax all day and night enjoying the views.

The house itself is so beautiful, with everything that you need and way more. It’s decorated with a great taste and you feel like you at home. All of the appliances are very high end, the house is extremely clean!!! The owners are super helpful and very friendly.

I had a privilege to be in this beautiful place with my family and friends and we had an amazing time and made unforgettable mamories.

Carribean in Michigan

  • 5 of 5

This is my third year coming to this exceptional place. It's just perfect to get away from it all and make memories in a crystal-clear lake. The house is spotless and the owners r extremely nice and helpful. I've had great summers there and I highly recommend it :) I come all the way from Spain to spend my summers here.

A New Getaway

  • 4 of 5

I couldn't believe how beautiful the backyard view is. It has a cute bonfire near the blue lake that overlooked the dunes. The sight was absolutely breathtaking. The house is spacious but cozy. It has a happy and warm atmosphere. There are many activities to enjoy at this house, from swimming, to walking at the dunes, or sightseeing. I would recommend staying at this home, it's a wonderful place to stay by yourself or to have a few friends over to enjoy the time together.

Peace of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I stepped into the house I felt at home.

The view is breathtaking of the crystal light blue water and the dunes.

The home it's self was exceptionally crisp and clean which makes it that much more inviting.

This peace of paradise is my new favorite place, I can't wait to visit in fall to see all the beautiful colors changing.
