Holiday Rental House
Bordered on one side by National Seashore forest, this cottage will be entirely renovated for Memorial Day 2017. Cottage lies at the confluence of Big and Little Glen lakes, at the southern end of the Glen Lake Narrows. Walk your kayak to the Narrows bridge and hop in. Swim from your raft at the sandy-bottomed Narrows in either lake. Wonderful biking: begin your ride at the cottage and go through the Narrows to Glen Arbor village to catch the Heritage Trail--or head northeast on MacFarlane for an immediately challenging ride up to Inspiration Point and around Big Glen to the Crystal River and the Heritage Trail north of Glen Arbor. The cottage is being remodeled for the 2017 season and has never before been available for rent. It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a screened-in porch...Bordered on one side by National Seashore forest, this cottage will be entirely renovated for Memorial Day 2017.

The cottage is being remodeled for the 2017 season and has never before been available for rent. It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a screened-in porch for summer. Beds for five, including three single beds in the second bedroom and a queen bed in the master bedroom. There is also a comfortable sleep sofa in the family room. Rents Saturday to Saturday. Check in 4PM - check out 10 AM. House close to the Sleeping Bear dunes and Dune Climb with Big and Little Glen Lakes across the street. Boat rentals available in walking distance. Bring kayaks and walk to public access on the Narrows Bridge. Superb biking. Major hills surround the house, including on MacFarlane and a series of seven ascents on Benzonia, but equally possible to reach the Heritage Trail bike path stretching from Empire to Good Harbor Bay without a single significant climb by riding into Glen Arbor and catching the Trail there.More

This lovely "cottage", while not directly on the lake, is right across the street from Glen Lake. The public boat launch is literally a three minute drive, and hiking in Sleeping Bear Dunes or visiting the charming town of Glen Arbor is about 10 minutes...More

Thank you Nancy for your kind review. I am so happy you enjoyed your time. People often can’t figure out where the public beach access is but it is about 500 feet from our house, on the north side of the bridge onto Little Glen....More
