About the property

2nd Story Studio Apartment separate entrance cozy, cute Just Like Home!




Many of the trees are gone from the storm of August 2, 2015 storm revealing incredible seasonal views of Alligator hill and Glen Lake.

We have cleared most of the downed trees, the yard is on the mend and it is already starting to green up. There will be evidence from the incredible storm for years to come.

The Fire pit, picnic table survived the storm and will be available as well as an ample supply of firewood.

Centrally located in Glen Arbor Township we are close to:

Glen Lake

Lake Michigan

Sleeping Bear Dunes.

About Peter Stern

I moved up from the Detroit area in 1995

I visited Glen Arbor one time and three months later I dropped everything and moved.

I always said I bought my retirement home first. Usually its the other way around. I have been lucky to live and work in one of the most beautiful places on earth and now I would like to share the experience with travelers.


Peter Stern purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Peter Stern chose Maple City

This property is an exceptional value, very comfortable, quiet, available most of the year for those who don't like the big crowds the peak seasons bring.

If you like Glen Arbor/Leelanau in the off season and for those that are like me and don't have a work schedule that is a 9-5 Mon-Fri or revolve around holidays we have great weekday rates for year round vacation getaways.

In the summer it is centrally located to Downtown Glen Arbor, Empire, Traverse City, Leland, and Frankfort. All these places are 5 to 35 minutes away. At the end of the day when you get back to the place you will have a comfortable, clean, safe, place to kick back relax and enjoy the amenities.

What makes this apartment unique

Owner is close enough to ensure your stay is to your liking,

and far enough not to bother. For around the cost of a motel room you get the whole place to yourself.

Flo's Garage was a wonderful place for us. The location is ideal for several events that we enjoyed the weekend we stayed there. The amenities exceeded our expectations. We will definitely consider this vacation rental location next trip.

This truly is a great place to stay! My husband and I found the place to be very welcoming after spending our days enjoying the area. We loved the location, nice and quiet but close to places we wanted to see. Very nice floor plan and well decorated. Felt very comfortable and safe here.

Perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week here. We loved everything about the space; it was clean, had everything we needed and was the perfect location to venture out from. We enjoyed watching the deer in the evening grazing the perimeter of the yard, having breakfast across the street, driving a couple of miles to the Old Settlers park to enjoy the lake, and just being able to get anywhere in such a short time even though it felt like we were out in the woods.
