Scoop up a wonderful cottage in the heart of Glen Arbor and near everything. Find back country roads and trails, wander to a stunning Lake Michigan sugar sand beach, kayak the Crystal River any time, or stay in town for dining and shopping.
Too, the extra $1 per night on each room tariff is a donation for the exceptional new hard-surfaced Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail through the forest to the Dune Climb and on to Empire that you are likely to walk or run or bike at some time during your stay.
