Places to stay in Sleeping Bear Point
Good Morning America has deemed Sleeping Bear Dunes & Glen Arbor as the most beautiful place in America. Bear Haven is a new 4 bed/3 bath home located 1/2 mile from Lake Michigan and just 2 blocks from Glen Arbor's downtown. The white pine interior & custom made log furniture gives it that "Up North" feel. The large deck creates a private outdoor space. Bear Haven is just minutes away from shopping, restaurants, hiking, biking, kayaking, dune climbing, swimming, fishing, boating & more.
Our family has enjoyed Glen Arbor and Leelanau County for years. Our hope is to create a place to stay you will always remember and want to come back to. Vacations are about memories and our hope this place supplies you with memories for a lifetime. We love being in the village and have everything we need without ever getting into a car. We can go hiking and biking on the Heritage Trail, kayaking, swimming, shopping, dining, wine tasting all within walking distance. Then after a full day of activity we can come back to our property and feel like we are miles away with the National Park in our backyard.
Bear Haven is located on a small cul-de-sac with 4 other houses. The way the cabin is set up, the back yard is very private. We often see deer in our backyard.
  • 5 stars for comfort, location, and cleanliness!

  • Fun place for a Northern Michigan winter weekend! Plenty of room for our group of 8, super clean and comfortable, and a great location!

    Jen2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our weekend getaway at Bear Haven, Kevin & Gina went out of their way to provide the best experience for my family and I. Location and amenities are unmatched. Would come visit again in a heartbeat.

  • I reserved Bear Haven for a couples cabin trip and it was amazing. The cabin was clean, warm and welcoming. The decor was beautiful. The hosts very nice and helpful. They gave us tips for things to do and responded quickly to any questions I had. You won’t regret staying here.

    Geneva2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Bear Haven is a very clean, comfortable place to kick back and relax! Very convenient to local stores, restaurants, and sites to see. Super responsive hosts!

    Carla2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • We came up north to see the fall foliage...we were not disappointed!! Bear Haven was the perfect choice for our family's stay. It was exactly as pictured/described and located close to everything. The pool table, theater and arcade games kept us entertained during the rain. Cherry Republic is a must for all visitors, the cherry salsa was our favorite. We look forward to staying at Bear Haven again and would recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

  • Kevin’s house blew our expectations out of the water. It had an amazing kitchen and living space, perfect for meals with our guests and a place to all hang out. The house had everything you could ask for both inside and outside. We also got so lucky and saw a real bear outside of the cabin during our stay, how fitting! I would certainly return for another trip.

    Kelly2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing house! It is very spacious and clean. Would definitely come back and stay again!

    Nancy2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recommend staying here! The house itself is amazing, it was perfect for 6 of us. The home itself is beautiful! Location is perfect, it’s walking distance to downtown Glen Arbor yet tucked away in the woods where you feel secluded. We have been going to Glen Arbor since the early 2000s and this has been one of our favorite homes to stay at! We didn’t have to ask any questions because Andrew was very detailed in his email so arriving and leaving were very straight forward and we knew what to expect. This was our first experience using Airbnb, I was a little hesitant after reading news articles regarding others experience at different Airbnb locations. However, after this experience and how easy and pleasant it was, we definitely will be using it more, especially for future visits to Glen Arbor. If Andrews home is available we for sure will stay there again!

  • Morgan and Hilary were great hosts and even gave us a welcome basket with smoke supplies. The place is impeccable and situated in a beautiful place. The lawn goes right down to the lake. Fires in the evenings by the water were amazing. I was able to launch my Sunfish Sailboat from the lawn. The lake was a perfect place to sail. Highly recommended!

    Eliott2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Morgan and Hilary provide you all that the description states and more. We were greeted with a little guest basket! Great place and location!

    LaVay2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Best home we've rented on Glen lake

    Allyson2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • This was our third year renting on little glen and by far our favorite place we’ve stayed. Great yard, beautiful spot on the lake, charcoal grill, right across the street was the heritage trail, and a short walk down that was the dune climb, which our boys loved. House was not cluttered, clean, tastefully renovated and decorated, very comfortable, and had everything we could need. And no carpet was a huge plus, especially coming in and out from the lake. The personal touches and welcome treat really put this place over the top!! Our three year old asked if we could stay forever - high praise from a kid who usually misses home two days into a trip. Thanks so much Morgan and Hilary, we had a great vacation and memories that will last a lifetime!

  • This was a repeat visit since we spent several days here about a month ago. Lake Michigan was a bit more rambunctious this time, so we kept our heads well covered during our strolls :-). A very pleasant drive north along the coast. This area of Michigan is truly lovely. Our stay was very comfortable and we look forward to our next visit to the area, and we'll undoubtedly grab this spot if it is available.

    Steve2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to hear car noise or the sound of neighbors watching TV then don't rent this location. It is quiet and wonderfully withdrawn from the surroundings. A great night's sleep is automatic and a pleasant morning on the deck awaits.

    Steve2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place was fantastic! It was very clean, comfortable and inviting and had everything we could possibly need. I usually travel with an “essentials” box like pump soap for bathrooms, a couple of sharp knives, travel size laundry soap, ziplock bags, paper towels (because rentals usually have really cheap paper towels), etc. I didn’t need any of these items. This house had everything you could possibly need, even quality Bounty paper towels! The beds were extremely comfortable, the furniture and decor were awesome and every convenience was thought of. There is a shed loaded with bikes, helmets, life jackets, tennis rackets, etc. and 6 kayaks for use. And, it was fantastic to be able to walk to everything in town. What can I say other than we had a fantastic time and I highly recommend renting from Carl. All in all, I give this Airbnb an A+++ rating. We will be frequent renters in the future!

    Sara2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Carl's place was very clean and spacious. It is located down a quiet street but still walking distance to everything in Glen Arbor. We would definitely stay here again!

    Jennifer2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Carl’s place is beautiful and comfortable, with outstanding amenities, such as bikes and kayaks, located close to downtown Glen Arbor. We all had a great time!

    Gerald2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice home with lots of amenities (mountain bikes, kayaks, fire pit, etc). It is close to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore as well as the lake and several rivers. Overall a great experience!

    Eric2019-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Carl's place in Glen Arbor. The house was spacious and had everything we needed to cook dinner, play games and generally have a great time! Carl had bikes and kayaks available and the beautiful Crystal River was just across the street. We had a great time riding on the bike trails in Sleeping Bear Dunes and kayaking on the river. Check-in was super easy and Carl was easy to get in touch with and very welcoming. The house is a short (5 minute) walk to the local grocery store and several restaurants. Great place to stay if you want to explore Sleeping Bear Dunes and go kayaking or biking in the area!

    My place is close to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The Beach House is located on Lake Michigan in Glen Arbor, MI. This area was voted by GMA as one of the ten most beautiful places in America. Lots of restaurants, family-friendly activities, beaches, nightlife, shops and a wonderful bike trail. You’ll love my place because of the open modern feel, the light, the kitchen, the comfy beds, and the high ceilings. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
  • The location is amazing. On the lake, walking and biking out the door. The kitchen is well stocked. The layout of the house works well with family groups. Highly recommend this rental.

    Michele2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great modern space in a natural lakefront setting. We loved our time here. Everything was clean and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need.

    Marsha2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful beach house just steps to Lake Michigan and a very short walk into Glen Arbor. The location cannot be beat. We were impressed by the location of the house and all of the amenities made available - beach toys, chairs, towels, and even a sailboat! Kiku has decorated the beach house very thoughtfully. It is bright, airy, and cozy. We were so happy with our stay and hope to be able to come back again next year! Thank you Kiku for sharing your lovely cottage with us!

    Jenn2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at the lake house! Perfect location with beautiful views.

    Desiree2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Location is perfect for families who like to stay busy. We spent part of each day on the beach then would hop on the bike trail to the dunes, walk to the playground or into town. Kayaking with the kids was just down the street and there is hiking trails all over the national park. The house itself was light and airy, just what a lake house should be. I didn’t even mind cooking since the lake view was right in front of me. We will be back!

    Jacky2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • This house was incredible! It was so cozy inside and was absolutely gorgeous outside. The deck provided a wonderful view of the lake and was very relaxing. There are windows and screen doors across two whole sides of the house providing great light, breezes and views!

    Kate2018-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Private beach getaway with a location that can’t be beat! You can walk or bike just about anywhere. Very well stocked kitchen and plenty of beach toys and chairs for the family. Great host!

Tally Ho is Embellished with horse memorabilia, gardens and live ponies to greet you.
    Tally Ho is right in the heart of Glen Arbor, yet very quiet and hidden by beautiful gardens and nature. Walking to everything the town has to offer.
    Glen Arbor is a beautiful, fun safe town full of adventures!
  • Had a great stay at Tally! The location can't be beat - half a block to Lake Michigan and half a block to shops/restaurants. This was our first trip to the area and Glen Arbor was the perfect spot for our family. Close to Sleeping Bear dunes and lots of cute towns and interior lakes to explore. That said Glen Arbor was our favorite. Great selection of restaurants and shops that stayed open late enough to browse after dinner (not true of surrounding towns). Highly recommend Good Harbor for dinner and Cherry Republic for a meal/dessert/drinks. Leelanau Coffee had great coffee and the best scone I've ever had. We did find the restaurants and grocery store a bit on the pricey side so if you are planning to eat in a lot you may want to bring your own food or stop in a bigger town before coming into Glen Arbor. The house was clean and had a fully stocked kitchen including drip coffee maker, Nespresso machine and electric kettle. The house does not have central air, but there was a portable unit in the larger bedroom and it was cool enough at night with a fan (several were available in the house) that we were comfortable. There is no wi-fi router in the house, but you might be able to connect to the business close by. There was also free wi-fi at the coffee shop and the public park just down the street. Was also nice to have a washer/dryer for our beach towels and sandy clothes. The highlight of the trip for my 7 year old were the 3 horses and chickens that lived just across the driveway. The owners were super nice and let her help take care of the animals. We were a bit worried about the electric fence, but it was no big deal. If you plan to walk back to the house after dark you may want to bring a small flashlight, it can get a bit dark near the house.

    Betsy2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Nicolle's place was exactly what we were looking for: right in Glen Arbor, quiet, not requiring a week stay and AC in both bedrooms (as well as ceiling fans in all rooms). Nicolle was a great host, super friendly and always quick to respond (before and after booking). The pictures are accurate. One thing to note (depending on who you're traveling with): the bathroom is in the master bedroom (sink open to the room, as is seen in the pictures). I loved having my morning coffee on the back porch/patio before getting going on the day! We will be back! Thanks, Nicolle!

    Christine2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location and a good place to stay

    Steph2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place to stay in Glenn Arbor. we will do it again if we get a chance. Kids loved it.

    Suresh2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Three day stay at this cute and comfortable getaway! Walking distance to Glen Arbor and within minutes driving of countless activities. We hiked, biked, canoed, swam, took scenic drives, and tubed down the Platte River. The home was exceptional~ clean, cozy and central. Small fire pit to enjoy a bonfire after watching the sunset off of the lake just down the street. Horses on the property were an added bonus for our two small kids to enjoy. Hosts were available and attentive, and paid attention to every detail (they had fresh cut wildflowers in vases in each room, delicious smelling soaps and lotions from local artisans for us to use, and two bundles of firewood waiting for us). Super friendly atmosphere, can't say enough. Would love to return for another unforgettable family vacation! We got lucky booking Tally Ho:)

    Diane2017-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great find in an amazing location! Walkable to everything yet secluded oasis feel. Saw deer, enjoyed watching the ponies and garden. Steps the the beach, wine bar, restaurants, grocery store. Great value for our group of 6!!

    Our beach looks out onto Lake Michigan and North and South Manitou Islands. You can walk as far as you wish on the beach or just enjoy the sun and water. The guesthouse is behind and slightly to the side of the main house which limits its view of the lake. The fire pit lets you cook and enjoy cool evenings with a warm fire.
    Our Guesthouse, together with our home, is on Lake Michigan within walking distance of Glen Arbor, Michigan, and surrounded by the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore with its many trails, dunes and beaches. We look out onto North and South Manitou Islands, enjoy the beach for relaxing and walking, and enjoy the water for swimming and paddling around. Our Guesthouse has a bedroom with a queen-size bed, a living room with two day-beds , a mini-kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, and toaster oven, and a bathroom with a stall shower. We provide towels and bed linens. Two bicycles are available for our guests. Parking is available for two standard sized cars next to the Guesthouse. During summer we rent only Saturday to Saturday. Although the Guesthouse is adjacent to the main house, privacy is assured with private access and no visibility from the main house. As part of our home, the quality of the Guesthouse reflects the quality of our home. Our site with the Guesthouse is very special to our family and to our guests. They consistently want to come back again. In addition to the Lake Michigan beach, the area includes Glen Lake with its parks, boat rentals, and warmer water for swimming. There are, also, fine restaurants, shops, and a pleasantly relaxed ambiance.
    We are on the Lake Michigan beach in Glen Arbor which is within the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore. One can walk to restaurants and grocery store. Bicycles can be rented to get around the Park and to use the Heritage Trail.
  • The guesthouse is in a wonderful location! You are close to the beach with great views of north and south manitou islands. Glen Arbor shops and restaurants are within walking distance or a very short drive. David was quick to respond and very friendly. I would highly recommend this place!

    Brandon2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • David’s place is clean and cozy. The views of Lake Michigan are amazing and the fire pit was a huge plus!

    Bonnie2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here! Lots of windows which was lovely! Felt like we were in a treehouse & you can see a sliver of the lake from the living room. Nice deck with chairs right outside the door (great for hanging out or hanging clothes to dry). We walked the boardwalk to the beach several times to sit on the lakeside bench & swim in the waves. There is a beautiful view of the bay and the islands. The guesthouse is unattached from the main house which means more windows for a nice cross breeze inside.

    Emma2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Best location.

    Jennifer2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful place. The private beach is truly spectacular, with amazing vistas, particularly at sunset. One can walk along the entire shoreline of Sleeping Bear Bay east to Glen Arbor center (a quick 5 minute beach walk) and beyond, as well as west to Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore -- the DH Day campground, Glen Haven, and Sleeping Bear Point (the latter is the furthest, about 2 miles or so). There is a very nice beach deck with benches, portable beach chairs, a firepit, and firewood provided. Amazing! The beach deck and beach are shared with David, Becky, and their family (who stay in the main house on the same property as the guest house). We saw them occasionally in the shared driveway but we never intersected with them on the beach deck or the beach. It was for the most part as if we had the whole place to ourselves... There is a limited and narrow view of Lake Michigan from the guesthouse itself, since it is on the other side of the main house from the beach. This was not a big deal. We walked out to the beach deck to view the spectacular sunset. If one prefers to walk on the road rather than the beach to Glen Arbor center, one can easily do so -- also about a 5 minute walk. Very nice to just walk to and from nice restaurants in Glen Arbor for dinner... David and Becky were very friendly, attentive, and helpful hosts. We were pleased to find a Nespresso espresso maker fully stocked with pods. They were very accommodating with our special request -- access to an outside wall outlet at which to plug in our electric car. It worked out great! We would definitely come again!

  • Wonderful space, prime location, warm hospitality - would highly recommend Guesthouse and David as a host! We enjoyed our stay!

  • This is an excellent choice for folks that want to be on the beach. The views from the deck are fabulous, especially the sunsets!!! You are also just a 10 minute walk to Glen Arbor along M-22 or the beach. The unit is very well equipped with everything you need for your stay including dishwasher and washer/dryer so you will not need to overpack for your stay. Here are a few tips for future guests.....it's on the second floor so need to use the stairs. However, no need to worry! They are wide, making it easy carry things up and down. Plan to park in the numbered parking space that corresponds to the unit number, if you have two cars you can use the spots marked with a "V". Guests during high season may be out of a spot if you arrive late in the evening. Lastly, this is a condominium complex. Visiting during peak season means being close proximity to condos above/below and left/right of you. If your expectation is peace and solitude, I suggest visiting during the off season so you will not be disappointed!

    The Ballein Family's "Innisfree" cottage sits on the shores of Lake Michigan at the base of beautiful Sleeping Bear Bay in Glen Arbor, at the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. It's tasteful updates, comfortable furnishings and excellent location make it the perfect gathering spot for families and friends visiting our beloved spot in Northern Michigan.
    This traditional lakefront cottage is set up for family gatherings. A large living room with a two-story wall of windows welcomes in the world class views of Sleeping Bear Bay and the Manitou Islands. It’s furnished with a comfortable sofa and chairs and a 50” flat screen above the gas fireplace. The kitchen and dining room offer plenty of seating and space to prepare big meals. And when it’s time to call it a night, each of the bedrooms is outfitted with comfy beds and flat screen tvs. The spacious front deck has a gas grill and a variety of seating, perfect for a quiet morning coffee as the day begins, or a big family meal as you take in another postcard-perfect Northern Michigan sunset. From the deck it’s less than 100’ down to the beach. If you’re unfamiliar with Sleeping Bear Bay, there are few freshwater beaches that are nicer. It offers miles of sandy shoreline to explore, beachcombing for Petoskey stones, sandcastle building, or simply relaxing on a blanket with a book and letting the world’s worries slip away. Specifics: The bedrooms are arranged as follows: on the main level is the master bedroom with a king bed. There is a shared full bathroom just across the hall from the bedroom. The second level has 2 bedrooms, each with queen beds, and the top floor loft is furnished with 4 twin beds. (the loft is accessed through the shared 2nd floor bathroom.)

At the end of Lake Isle Ave and the base of Sleeping Bear Bay, it’s close to the action in Glen Arbor, but far enough away for the peace and quiet you’re seeking. In addition to a front-row seat to all the beachfront fun you can handle, the surrounding area offers a huge variety of opportunities to explore & play. Hiking the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, biking on the newly-constructed Heritage Trail, cross country skiing and snowshoeing, wine tasting on Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas, charter fishing for salmon and steelhead, and arts & live entertainment throughout the county and in traverse city - the options are nearly endless.
  • Peter was very responsive. Great location. Very clean. Well stocked kitchen.

    Al2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was definitely a 5-star vacation! We filled the house up (me, my kids, and their kids) and enjoyed every inch of it. This house was clean and is super cute with a very tasteful beach decor and lots of really neat decorating touches. The kitchen was very well stocked, and we used the grill on the side porch. The only potential negative was that the entrance to the 3rd floor bedroom is through the second floor bathroom. We simply made the rule up front that if the bathroom doors were closed (no locks on any bathroom doors), that meant someone was in there, so don't open the doors. But it actually didn't cause any problems for anybody. We stayed from June 4th to June 8th. We had a rainy cool morning on our first full day there, but the rest of the weather was absolutely perfect (mid 60's to mid 70's). The lake water, however, was freezing; so the kids didn't spend much time in it. We spent a lot of time on the beach and playing in the sand in the yard at the house, though; plus, climbed and explored three different dunes areas, hiked through the forest, Kayaked at All About Water in Glen Arbor (a first time experience for most of us), and explored the cute town of Glen Arbor twice. We appreciated the short walk to town and having a well-stocked grocery store a block away. There was a bags/cornhole game in the back yard, and a few family games in a kitchen cupboard. We had a fantastic time, and I would highly recommend this house and vacation area.

    Sharon2019-06-08T00:00:00Z

It is just a very short walk to the beach with the majority of the way having a boardwalk to walk on. The house was able to accommodate 7 adults comfortably. The kitchen was updated and very nice. This house is in a great location, not too far from Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, Fishtown and Empire. We will definitely be returning to Thistledown. Thank you Spencer always responding so quickly to questions I had. You were a great host!

    Fisher's Glen is an historic cottage, located on the channel to the Fisher & Glen Lakes, 1.5 miles from downtown Glen Arbor, across the street from the Crystal River, and trailhead to the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail. Dock your boat in front and cruise the Glen Lakes, or bring your kayaks & enjoy quiet Little or Big Fisher Lake, or the Crystal River. THIS IS A SATURDAY TO SATURDAY RENTAL DURING THE SUMMER OF 2020. 2 night minimum off-season
    This may be one of the most unique properties in the area. The main portion of the cabin was constructed by John Fisher, and his wife Harriet (who actually named Glen Arbor), in the 1880's. You will see some original features, like the fir flooring that was milled at the Fisher Sawmill over 130 years ago, the original log walls in some of the living spaces, that was uncovered during remodeling. Alongside the historic aspects, we provide a modern kitchen and full bath, plus a small half bath, and an outdoor shower, a bunk room, and two more roomy bedrooms. There's an expansive grassy front yard on the channel, with a fire pit for roasting some marshmallows and unwinding after a day on the water or touring the area, plus a couple of hammocks for an afternoon nap. Need something from town? About a two minute drive.
    This is a quiet neighborhood of tight-knit year-round and seasonal residents. We ask that you respect their Summer by keeping an outdoor quiet time (around the fire pit or wherever) to 11pm, and abiding by a no-fireworks-on property requirement.
  • The stay was great. Colleen was very responsive and accommodating .Very nice location for our group size and close to sleeping bear dunes.

    This fresh, one bedroom cottage with mid-century modern design and furnishings sits on a nicely wooded lot just 1/4 mile west of Glen Arbor. Convenient walking or biking access to all of town's shops and restaurants as well as the beach and Heritage Bike Trail. In the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, this is the perfect starting off spot for a couple or small family.
    Fully furnished and stocked 1 bedroom cabin. Does not have on-site laundry.
  • This was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay. Wonderful location up in sleeping bear and still back into the woods enough that it felt quiet and secluded. A new build was going up next door, but luckily they did not work on the property during our stay, as that would have made it a lot more noisy and less relaxing. Were able to ride our bikes all around, had bonfires in the fire pit and at outside on the table. Great weather and beautiful area!! Peter was very prompt in all communication and was nearby to stop over and help as needed. The place was very clean and comfortable and had most of what we needed for a great week. Only thing we could think of needing was a toaster in the morning.

    Discover the wonders of winter in Glen Arbor. With an equipment rental from Crystal River Outfitters you can enjoy a free wine tasting at M22. Book a three night stay from November 1st to March 1st to take advantage of this offer. WATERFRONT WALKOUT! This fabulous ground floor studio sits on the banks of the beautiful Crystal River surrounded by Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The white sugar sand beach and crystal clear water of Lake Michigan's Sleeping Bear Bay is a mere 40 meters away, on the other side of a small sand dune across a charming footbridge. Don't worry, the Crystal River ought to be called Crystal “stream” or “creek.” Although too shallow to swim, the warm water and slow flow from Glen Lake is perfect to splash and play in! For an invigorating swim, Lake Michigan is just the thing and mere steps away. Relax in the sun on the beach; enjoy the waves and seagulls as they fly overhead. While luxuriating on the beach soak in the sights of the Manitou Islands (the lighthouse is lit at night!), the enormous Sleeping Bear dune, the billowing sails of yachts passing during the Chicago to Mackinac Race, and the great lake freighters making their way through the Manitou Passage. When staying at Craig's Cabin you are welcome to use the beach walk over to Lake Michigan but you will not have access to the pool or other amenities. Enjoy the early evening as the red sun slowly sinks into the blue waters of Lake Michigan. At night take your beach blanket and lie under the stars while listening to the gentle lap of the waves. From time to time you may see the Northern Lights! There are no lights at the beach to distract from the full majesty of the star lit night sky. Waterfront Studio is located in the very heart of The Homestead Resort. Gated reserved parking means you never have to hunt for a parking space. This cozy nest is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay in what ABC Good Morning America television declared ”The Most Beautiful Place in America"!

Enjoy coffee on the patio in the morning and wave to the kayakers making their way down the river while planning your day. Will you join them or pack a picnic for a leisurely day on the shore of Lake Michigan? You could take the M-22 tour and visit our sister communities of Empire, Leland, Lake Leelanau, Northport, Omena & Suttons Bay. All have their distinct charm with much to recommend them. Winery tours are an excellent way of seeing the county and sampling 'the grape' of some astonishing vintners. The Heritage Trail beckons with its 16 miles of paved hiking / biking / cross country skiing trails and you are minutes from the Dune Climb and Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive with breathtaking vistas and welcoming picnic areas. Traverse City is only 25 minutes due east for a more 'cosmopolitan' experience but still with a northern Michigan vibe. And from gourmet to casual dining, there is something to tempt anyone's palate in Leelanau and Grand Traverse counties! Go horseback riding, rent a boat on Big Glen lake, charter a fishing boat in the hunt for wild salmon, hike countless trails, pick some fresh cherries or blueberries, visit local farmer's markets, take in some live entertainment, try your luck at the casino, take in a movie at one of the last drive-ins in the country, visit the Manitou Islands via ferry, attend a local festival...the list goes on and on.

The team was very responsive and gave plenty of details in their messages. We were able to let ourselves in upon arrival (accommodating our late night check in), and hosts were available via messaging throughout our stay if we needed. The condo is equipped with everything you need for a weekend getaway, including a stove-top (for our scrambled eggs each morning) / small oven / and fridge/freezer (which successfully kept our ice cream frozen). There is a guest binder outlining all pertinent information and also their top recommendations for restaurants, activities, and shopping in the area (rack of brochures too!). And the cherry on top was a cute welcome gift and letter from the owners upon arrival :) We would love to come back and stay here again. Top notch!

  • Great location. Right on the Crystal River and Lake Michigan. Walk out the slider and wade in the crystal rivers sandy bottom to a private dune either riverside or lakeside in under ten minutes. Close to downtown Glen Arbor, within the Homestead Resort, though you aren’t allowed access to the resorts amenities. 15-20 minutes from Empire and Maple City. Lots of eating and shopping and chilling. Great spot.

    Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is truly unique, and at Long View, you are smack in the middle of it on the desirable North Shore of Little Glen Lake. Your own private space on the water includes the use of kayaks, a sunfish sailboat, 6 bikes and more. Alligator Hill hiking trails are right across the street. We will do our best to offer you an amazing experience: shorter stays if desired, privacy, local info only when you want it and no hassles. Let us know how we can help you.
    Private lower level space with own entrance. Two spacious bedrooms, full bath, and sauna. Refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, and toaster oven. Outside grill available.
    In the 1970's Congress passed a law making the Sleeping Bear Lakeshore area a National Park. 77,000 acres of natural beauty without condo's, billboards or development.
  • This is a great lower level apartment of a beautiful home right on the north shore of Little Glen. The amenities are just as stated (the coffee maker is a Keurig, so bring your K-Cups!). The home has central air, which is rare in Michigan, and was welcome on those 80+ degree days. There is a beautiful two-level deck with a great,framed by trees, view of the lake. The kayaks, pedal boat, tube/raft and bicycles were all available too us, all the time. R.K. was available to share local tips on places to eat we may not have tried yet. All in all, a great stay and a great choice if your vacation time does not allow a strict Saturday to Saturday, like most rentals in Glen Arbor/Empire.

    Chris2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing space and proximity to local attractions (sleeping bear dunes, downtown, public beaches). Loved having the kayaks accessible

    Madeleine2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • I can't give enough compliments to RK about his beautiful home. He is on a beautiful clear lake with dock and kayaks at the ready! His home is in the middle of all the trails you need and a short drive to Sleeping Bear and traverse city. Without asking, RK provided so many local tips and places to go to, along with iced tea! His dog, Bella, was also very cute and so friendly. Do not miss out on booking this home, we'll be back next summer.

    Albert2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • R. K’s place was beyond more amazing than expected. It’s a cute little flat underneath the main home. The host was on the property which was a perk if you ask me. They were more than accommodating and their hospitality was so genuine and charming. They let us in on all the best spots in town and even gave us a little tour. They were here if we needed them but yet gave us more than enough privacy. We had the whole backyard to ourselves with a beautiful breakfast deck that overlooks the gorgeous lake. They have great outdoor lighting with a wonderful bonfire pit! Which was a main reason we choose this place. The amenities that came with the stay was OVER THE TOP. Many bicycles to choices from, three kayaks and a walkout dock to swim off of. Close to all the hiking and biking trails. The stars at night were spectacular, laid out on the dock and just stared gazed all night! We had 5-6 guest during the stay and it all worked out! Me and my family will for sure come back and we highly recommended this hidden gem!

    Daniel2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had really good time at R.K.'s place. He provided us a lot of good tips and recommendations. The location is great, right next to the Glenn Lake and about 5' to the Dune Climb. The hose also lent us 6 bikes to ride around town. Highly recommended for anyone planing to visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes.

    Hieu2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • R.K. was an incredibly hospitable and accommodating host. In terms of location, the house is right by the water and you really can't ask for any more. However, R.K. was very generous with kayaks, bikes, and even a sunfish (sailboat) so we could really enjoy Glen Lake without going far. Additionally his knowledge of the local offerings was superb and helped us get the most out of our brief time in the area. Thanks to R.K. we were able to enjoy more beaches, food, and local spots than we would have if we were on our own. Definitely consider this rental and we will be checking for availability for next summer!

    Ben2018-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • R.K.'s place was a very beautiful and welcome respite for our family. It was a perfect location for a quick hop over to Sleeping Bear Dunes, or just relaxing on a calm and not-to-crowded lake. Glen Arbor nearby has about four restaurants from which to choose. And ice cream too. Just make sure you get there before 9 PM! R.K. has kayaks, and other water amenities, and a great dock for just lounging with a glass of wine, or for star-gazing at night. Our only less-than-stellar comment comes from (our fault) having a large family. The bathroom is a bit small for six people to get through quickly, but this is not a negative; just a reality in our case. R.K. and Lori were wonderful hosts - really nice people who made sure we were extremely comfortable, and made us feel like the place was our own. But of course they did - they're from the Midwest! :) Congrats to R.K. and Lori for their venture into airbnb land - honored to have ben your first customers!

    The Glen Arbor Barnhouse captures what "Northern Michigan" is all about. The home is a very uniquely designed cabin that has a barnhouse feel and is located in the woods and on the Crystal River. The home sleeps at least 10 and has been recently remodeled with a focus on creating a very warm and fuzzy feel with lots of character elements within the home along with all the modern amenities you would expect in a new home. Enjoy the private setting and walkability to both town and Lake Michigan.
    Our property is away from the hustle and bustle of summer business but just a short walk to town and the shores of Lake Michigan. Also, because we are on the Crystal River enjoy kayaking, canoeing, fishing, etc. Summer weekly rentals from Saturday to Saturday.
    The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is just minutes away and is a tourist destination for people around the world. Also Glen Arbor is conveniently located to all of Leelanau Counties other attractions.
  • Great location in the cutest town of Glen Arbor! Amazing house with everything you need. Woke up to deer in the back yard, a warm fireplace to enjoy my coffee in front of, and fit all 10 of us in our party. Would love to come back!

    Bobi2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for the perfect amenities and location for the Glen Arbor area, you’ll find everything and more at Eric’s amazing barnhouse nestled in the woods.

    Deborah2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Eric’s house is a gem! It’s very charming and well equipped. It lies just enough outside of the main drag of town that it’s quiet, but it’s no trouble to walk in for coffee or shopping. For those of you that like air conditioning as I do... don’t be scared off by the lack of it in this house. The location, in a light forest close to the lake, does indeed keep the place so cool. We had a number of hot days during our 2 week stay, but the house was always cool and comfortable. It has everything that you might need to cook meals and a great grill too! My kids just love the bunkie room and the use of the kayaks. It was a fabulous trip. We rent in Glen Arbor every year in order to be with family so we know the town well. This year was one of the best rentals that we’ve had! Thanks Eric!

    Mia2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Eric's place is as good and better than the pictures. The space is ideal for a family gathering. Sitting by the indoor fire is cozy and the out door fire pit is a great way to enjoy the wonderful outdoor space. The home is on the Crystal River, a short walk to Lake Michigan and a short drive into Glen Arbor. I highly recommendthis destination!

    Chris2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Carl's place was absolutely lovely. The proximity to Glen Arbor town centre was perfect, just a 5-10 minute walk. The house was perfect for myself and my family - the bikes and kayaks in the shed were a great touch. We would love to come back during the summer at some point.

    Rhiannon2019-05-03T00:00:00Z

    This woodsy retreat is surrounded by the best of northern Michigan. Enjoy a cozy fire in your quite lofted space, put your feet in the backyard river while drinking local wine, watch the sunset over Lake MI only a 2 minute boardwalk away from your front door
    This townhouse style condo, nestled in the foothill forests of northern Michigan, has a rustic charm and natural settings with modern convince. It's best feature is its foot access to Lake Michigan about 150 meters away, where you can watch the sun set over the water each night. Cathedral ceilings have skylights. One bedroom and bath is on the loft level and overlooks the space while still providing privacy. The second private bedroom is on the ground level and next to the other bathroom. A fold out couch in the living room can sleep an additional 2 people. There is a full service kitchen and dishwasher and a dining area. Outside the glass doors is your deck which overlooks Crystal River, about 20 feet away. Out the front door you are a two minute wooded stroll that passes another row of units and follows a scenic boardwalk to the natural sandy beaches of Lake Michigan. Enjoy the wood burning fireplace. Wood is provided for no fee year round in the shed across the parking area. This is a condo so it is part of a row of units and shares a wall on each side with other units. There is no air-conditioning but the unity is shaded by large trees which tends to keep it comfortably cool. There are fans for each bedroom. There is also a widow at the top of the cathedral ceiling that can be opened with a long pole located upstairs. This helps let the rising heat out.
    This area is known for it's pristine beauty. Foothills, lakes, forests, dunes and rivers create this landscape of northern Michigan. You'll be staying in a forested area on Crystal River, just a two minute boardwalk from the soft, sandy, natural beaches of Lake Michigan which are great for swimming. It's common to spot deer, carp, raccoons and other wildlife while looking out the living room windows. Walking trails are right outside your door. Downtown Glen Arbor, a mile away, has a grocery store, galleries, canoe bike and kayak rental, a variety of dining and bar options with live music in the summers, and the famous Cherry Repulic Complex for ice cream and snacks. The Heritage Bike Trail spans the coastline in this area. Your residence is completely surrounded by The Sleeping Bear Dune National Lakeshore, with its majestic views, drives and hiking. Charming towns, vineyards and cherry orchards dot this area of the state. For more entertainment drive to Interlochen Center for the Arts or Traverse City. We have provided a binder full of excursion ideas in the condo.
  • A great place to stay and/or use as a base for exploring the Leelanau Peninsula. Rain or shine, you will have a good time. The condo is very nicely decorated and the fireplace is fun to sit around. Close to town and the beaches, river and trails. One stop for all kind of fun.

    Norm2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I loved our time at Tom’s place. The location is close to the beach, has a river in the backyard that my young children loved playing in, and is a very short drive to Glen Arbor. We were worried about the lack of ac, but it was not needed as the location provided plenty of shade and a nice breeze, especially in the evenings. Overall we were very pleased with everything that the location offered.

    Adam2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely peaceful as you can kick back and relax with beautiful views of Crystal River right from your back door. Want more? Take the 5-10 min walk to what feels like your own personal beach on Lake Michigan! Clean home with all the amenities you could need. Looking forward to booking again!

    Holly2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Tom’s place is fantastic. It was very easy to get in and out and I appreciated everything along the way.

    Kyle2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • The condo is very clean and cozy. The location is perfect. The beach was very low key and quiet. We loved the little trails leading to the beach and along the river. It seems the condo association tries to keep it low-impact so there are lots of tree cover and unpaved walkways around the condos. The beach front has small areas carved out for setting up umbrellas and chairs whilst preserving the natural dune flora. Very beautiful and peaceful. Downtown Glen Arbor is a 5 minute drive down the road. The place had everything we needed for a worry-free stay.

    Ashley2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is definitely a great place to stay. The condo has everything you'll need for an extended vacation. Kitchen has a complete set of utensils (plates, forks, knives, spatulas, etc). The Crystal River is a few steps away in the back (water is warmer than Lake Michigan). You can hike up to Lake Michigan if you prefer colder water. The host is great and very responsive. Thanks again for the great stay.

    Lawrence2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in Glen Arbor, loved the location and felt “at home” in the condo. The view of the back area with the woods and stream was awesome! The condo had everything we needed. We were able to take advantage of the fully equipped kitchen to make breakfast in the morning and to relax in the evenings after a full day of activities. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Tom!

    Julie2019-06-21T00:00:00Z
