    Brian2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Good, little motel a couple of blocks from the beach and right in the middle of Empire. A great starting point for some up north adventures. Easy communication, and let pups stay, too!

  • Empire Holly House is a treasure! First of all, the home itself is lovely and filled with charming touches. It's stocked with everything a vacationer could need: comfortable beds, lots and lots of towels, a very well-equipped kitchen with pretty dishes and an appropriate "cherry" theme, a large bookcase full of games, cards, adult books and children's books, a big back yard with a place to park when street parking isn't available. We especially appreciated having charming spots to sit and chat, read, email, look at photos, plan our next adventure. And there are so many adventures to be had just a short distance away from the Empire location! It is just a short distance to both the north and the south sections of the wonderful Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (and the park's visitor center is just a three block walk from the Holly House). It's an easy drive to many park hikes, to the Dune Climb, to Traverse City, to the Old Mission Peninsula wineries, to Glen Arbor's restaurants and the Cherry Republic. The little town of Empire itself has much more than you might expect. It has an award-winning beach within walking distance of Ron and Inny's home - a lovely place to enjoy Lake Michigan and to view the sunset. There's Joe's Friendly Bar and Grill just down the block -- a great place for burgers and casual food. And the Grocer's Daughter Chocolate store - also in walking distance - lives up to its good reviews! Empire is such a great place to stay! Best of all, Ron and Inny were exemplary hosts. They provided clear directions and instructions. They responded quickly to our every question - and gave us great recommendations about the area. They made us feel completely at home! We were sorry to leave. As soon as we turned the corner onto the highway and left Empire, I was planning a trip back and thinking of friends and family that I would love to stay there, too.

    Adena2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our time at Holly House. Location was great for exploring Sleeping Bear and surrounding areas. We had everything we needed to make a home away from home.

    Johnetta2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our family of four had an absolutely lovely and fun time during our stay at the Holly House in Empire. We adored the house and the town of Empire. We would not hesitate to stay again! Inie & Ron were fast to communicate & respond to us. The house is very clean & charming and bigger then I thought it would be. Plenty of room for my two boys 8 & 6. Very comfortable beds, nice family room with a flat screen & cable, sparkling clean kitchen! Perfect location for exploring Sleeping Bear Dunes and a quick walk to the fantastic beach where we watched the stunning sunset every night. Beach has playgrounds for the kids too. Empire is the cutest town too... Tiffany’s Cafe for ice cream, Joe’s friendly tavern was great, Shipwreck cafe for quick breakfast & coffee, my kids loved the Empire Museum too! We biked from Holly House to Glen Arbor & back through the park one day. Just awesome! Also recommend Empire Bluff trail for more stunning views. My kids didn’t want to leave Holly House! Highly recommend you will not be disappointed.

    Raquel2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely quiet place to stay within walking distance to Lake Michigan. The house is nicely decorated and a pleasant place to stay.

    Nancy2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • The place was very clean and accommodating for our family. This was our first family vacation and it was an amazing stay. The place was much bigger than anticipated and had all the amenities of a house. Also, there were games for the boys and it is very kid friendly. Our boys enjoyed the place very much and we will definitely be back again!

    Mary2019-06-24T00:00:00Z

    This place is a winter and summer wonderland. Our cottage is a small 50's style with much character tucked away in the woods. We’re surrounded by the 70,000 acre Sleeping Bear Dunes. There’s plenty of skiing, canoeing, hiking and fishing, peace and quiet. We're on the boarder of Benzie and Leelanau Counties, the best of wine regions this side of the Mississippi and a true artisanal food destination It's a short drive to Honor, Empire or Glen Arbor. Traverse City is 25 miles east.
    This space is small and cozy and ideal for an "un-plugging" get-away. While there's a TV it is only for watching movies. There is no cable or WiFi, though there is good cell service for most major carriers. Your are next door to our small organic farm. We remodeled the cottage to green building standards and we clean with non-toxic cleaners. Therefore, our NO PETS/NO SMOKING policy is not negotiable. The kitchen is fully adequate for cooking. We also provide a gas grill and a fire pit.
    We are in a beautiful location for walks, biking and x-country skiing and snowshoeing right out the door. The closest and most picturesque beach in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is just 3 miles away where there are many trail heads and miles of undeveloped beach. We are also in wine country that is sprinkled with lots of artisanal food companies making chocolate, cheese, and more. Our own company Food For Thought was based on this farm for over 20 years moved to Traverse City in 2018. We make organic fruit preserves and sauces and would be happy to arrange a tour.
  • Great place for a weekend getaway! My boyfriend and I enjoyed it very much. It is super clean and the TV is updated from the pictures. The cottage is very cozy, secluded, and relaxing. Bring snacks for sure, but the towns near by have neat restaurants for during the day. The heater makes a little noise but if the room doors are closed you don't hear a thing. Definitely coming back.

    Alejandra2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lemon Drop Cottage was the perfect get away for my husband and I. The location is great, it was just secluded enough to have our own space but close enough to everything that you'd want to do when you think of Sleeping Bear Dunes and Leelanau Peninsula. It was clean and inviting. Tim gave us some great tips for hiking since we came when the weather was changing. Overall, great stay and highly recommend!

    Alexandra2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the Lemon Drop Cottage! Great location, quiet surroundings and beautiful scenery. Would definitely come back!

    Marta2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The lemon drop cabin was amazing. Communication with Timothy the whole time was great - he gave amazing instructions and was so helpful with texting and seeing us at the house. The cabin has much better cooking supplies than any Airbnb I’ve stayed in, basically the same as home. 2 bedrooms with comfortable beds and a bathroom and cozy living room as well. There are games and DVDs available as well. The setting and off the grid status was incredible for relaxing. We had fresh snow when we were up, which added to the coziness. It’s so close to great hiking and snowshoeing at Sleeping Bear Dunes. I would definitely return if I’m in the area! Thanks again!

    Stephanie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Was a lovely little spot to hole up in on a couple of cold winter days!

    Woody2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful cottage where you can relax and be off the grid. Timothy is a great host! Highly recommended!

    Pappu2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • The Lemon Drop Cottage was a cozy and convenient place for us to stay while exploring the Sleeping Bear Dunes area and the surrounding towns. Bringing our own ingredients, the cottage was well-equipped with the kitchen utensils we needed to cook a few meals. The decorations and vents were a bit dusty which somewhat bothered our allergies during our stay. Other than the bit of dust, the cottage was clean and accommodating.

    Nate2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend cozy spot to others. The location was perfect and the place was spotless! I felt right at home.

If we are staying on the property during your time, we would be in our Airstream trailer, which is parked away from the house to offer you plenty of privacy (not pictured in current location).

    The Cottonwood Carriage House is located in the Heart of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore voted most beautiful place in America. The Carriage House is within walking distance to the Empire Beach, shopping, and places to eat. Nearby are hiking trails, biking trails (27 miles of paved bike trail) beaches & rivers for kayaking/canoeing. SUP or tubing down at your own leisure. Also within a short distance wineries, golfing, shopping, and local brew pubs. There is something for everyone. The Carriage house sleeps 4 very comfortably. The room also has an Air conditioner, Flat screen t.v. and wifi.
    The Carriage house is a bi-level house once used as a garage and for farm workers that helped out on the Roen farm. Now it has a loft upstairs with a queen and two twin beds perfect for a family or just a couple getting away for a weekend. The downstairs has a small living area, kitchen and bathroom.

    The Carriage House is located on a quiet tree lined street but within walking distance to shops, places to eat, The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park Headquarters and the beautiful Empire Beach. The Empire Beach has two lakes for swimming and playing. It has the majestic Lake Michigan and South Bar.
  • Holly and her property deliver on what they promise. The local is outstanding for all the local activities.

    Kevin2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great experience at the Carriage House. I would highly recommend it for families interested in visiting this part of Michigan. The house worked very well for our family of four (kids are 8 and 10). For context, the house is an old carriage house/barn/garage that has been fully renovated and is very comfortable. The house is well-maintained and very clean. The main floor has a small kitchen, bathroom, small table, and living area with a TV. Up a spiral staircase is a big loft bedroom with a queen/full bed and two twins for the kids. Off the back of the room is a nice wooden deck with chairs. The carriage house is part of a larger inn, “The Cottonwood,” but the carriage house stands on its own away from the main house and has a very private feel to it. It is an easy bike ride or very short drive to the beach and to the stores in Empire. We also drove up to Glen Arbor, Leland, and Traverse City, all of which were easy drives. The Cottonwood property is huge and there was plenty of room for the kids to run around on the lawn during the day. Extra perks: good breakfast every morning at the inn, free wifi, garage space to keep bikes.

    William2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect launching spot for exploring Sleeping Bear Dunes! The owner, Holly, provided a large breakfast each morning and plenty of helpful tips during our stay here. We would definitely stay again and look forward to coming back!

    Robin2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Hidden gem in Empire! Great place to stay if you want to checkout the Sleeping Bear dunes Lakeshore and don't want to drive a long distance. We spent 3 nights and still didn't get to everything. We will definitely be coming back.

    Kate2019-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome house and an awesome host! Had a great time in Empire and this house was the perfect place to stay. Will be returning!

    Josh2019-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • The carriage house was the perfect place for our summer getaway! The location is convenient for accessing local hiking trails and beaches, and is only a short drive away from Glen Arbor. We had a delicious breakfast provided each morning and Holly was incredibly responsive. She provided us with some great local knowledge that really improved our trip. Hopefully we’ll be back!

    Caroline2018-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • The location is amazing and a great place to stay if you’re looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway.

    Quiet and spacious room that best sleeps 2. Quality queen size bed with high thread count cotton, woolen cover or down bedding. Your own bathroom is 10 steps away, through shared space.

We have otherwise no animals on premises but might have an occasional visit by the 1/4 mile away neighbor's very friendly old dog We will not be able to accommodate your pets.
  • This was a delightful home away from home, the house was warm and cozy. I enjoyed meeting Mimi and Norm and they made me feel truly welcomed to their home. Mimi left out some wonderful chocolates in the room that I enjoyed greatly. The house was perfect travel distance to all the places i wanted to see and travel. I would love to stay with them again.

    Rm2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Mimi and Norm are very gracious hosts and wonderful people. The accommodations are everything you'd want with an airbnb vacation--cozy space, immaculately clean, comfortable bed and sofa, private bath, good coffee and perhaps best of all great conversation. I highly recommend their home to anyone staying in this area of northern Michigan--a beautiful, quiet retreat with lots of natural surroundings. We hope to return to see the gardens in full bloom.

    Jane2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • It was fantastic!

    James2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • You will absolutely NOT regret a stay at Mimi and Norm's place. With two fantastic hosts who have great suggestions about what to do in the area, you will truly enjoy your stay. Their house is a beautiful getaway in the woods and very peaceful. It's a great location for easy access to the many areas of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park for hiking and fun outdoor activities. It's closer than staying near Traverse City, so you save time on getting to the park and have more time for fun. Highly recommend!

    Kelsey2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Mimi and Norm have created a magical place in the woods. I wanted to stay forever. I needed to be in Empire for an event. I'm so glad I found this place Very clean and beautifully, thoughtfully furnished. It had all I needed. Mimi and Norm are wonderful hosts and fascinating people. I rented a bedroom and a bath. My interactions with Mimi and Norm were always delightful. I hope to go back.

    Anne-Marie2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • We love Mimi & Norm's! Such a nice peaceful getaway with great hosts and very close to TC and Empire. They were very accommodating to us with our 3yr old boy.

    Micky2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful self built house in the woods...if you like nature and silence, it's the perfect place. Mimi gave us a lot of tips about what to do and where to eat (don't miss the Art's tavern in Glen Arbor), we enjoyed very much our stay at Mimi's house !

    Florence2019-09-21T00:00:00Z

    Ashleigh2019-09-15T00:00:00Z

    Connor2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Sue’s place was awesome! We found the entire house to be spotless, comfortable and nicely appointed. We cooked most meals in and found the kitchen great to work in, with plenty of space and all of the gadgets you’d need. The dining area and the deck, which looked out to a beautiful orchard, provided great spaces to enjoy a meal. The location of the house was good and less than a mile walk to beautiful Empire Beach. Overall, it was a great stay and I’d recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Empire area.

    Mary Lou2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Barb and Sue have provided a wonderfully equipped house to help insure an awesome time in Empire/Sleeping Bear area. Great location! We are eager to go back. You can’t go wrong and will enjoy your stay.

    This is s charming and classic 33-foot 1993 Airstream situated on our organic farm, adjacent to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. For off-season glamping, there is heat, lights and a gas range for cooking. There is a portable toilet parked just a few feet away and a frost free water spigot in our hoop house close by. There's a fire pit close by. It has all you need to experience our winter wonderland in glamping comfort. Please read entire listing.
    Unit has two single beds in the main bedroom and a pull-out couch in the main area. Please keep in mind that this is winter camping. The unit does have a gas furnace, but no indoor running water during cold months. You have port-a-potty just a few feet away and water spigot in our hoop house close by where you could bath from water you heat on the stove. While there is heat, you need to be prepared that on a very cold night, the furnace may not keep it as warm as your home. I do have a private shower and sauna at my home that I can fire up for $30 fee with some advance notice.
    This is a x-country, snowshoe and foodie paradise. You can enjoy the 70,000 acre Sleeping Bear Dunes for backwoods adventures or enjoy groomed trails at Homestead Resort, Crystal Mountain or other locations around Traverse City. Or you can tour our amazing food artisan shops, wineries and restaurants. We are in the center of the Sleeping Bear Dunes, which extends about 25 miles north and south of us along M-22. Esch Road Beach and Empire Bluff Trail (two of the most beautiful places in the park) are both just a few miles away. it's also a comfy place to just chill out and read or write. While it is very rural and super quiet 99.9% of the time, my neighbors and I do occasionally make noise with chainsaws, tractors and normal sounds of farm life (not so much in the winter). We have a fairly comprehensive list of "Things To Do" in the unit for your reference.
  • The location for the Airstream was perfect for an Up North getaway to Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City. Timothy was a great host and helped us tremendously when there were issues with the furnace. He even gave us some organic preserves to make up for the power going out one night! A peaceful stay for a relaxed weekend! I would recommend.

    Kassy2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Timothy’s place was GREAT! It was restorative, cozy and even more spacious than we expected. Loved drinking hot tea and watching the snow fall! Nice and close to the dunes too. Would definitely come back here

    Annamarie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The little silver trailer was a lovely winter retreat! A great stay for adventurous folk who love the outdoors. Located close to lots of hiking and xc skiing, Timothy’s place was exactly what we were looking for! He was a very accommodating host and worked hard to make us feel right at home.

Norm and Mimi excepted us lovingly and excepted the children with warm smile’s and a bowl of cereal and some toys. Our dog was able to roam freely around the grounds and enjoyed himself. The beautiful cabin is absolutely perfect if you like handcrafted eclectic homes.This cabin was perfect for our family and it was nice to be able to come home at the end of each day and cook a meal in our own cabin.

    Wendy2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Joe's place was fantastic. The house is spacious, clean and the views can't be beat. Having a full kitchen was really nice for a longer stay. On the lake but just a short drive to both Glen Arbor and Empire makes it a great location. Would definitely stay here again

    Aaron2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks - we enjoyed our stay.

    Peter2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • This little cottage was perfect for me. Clean, quiet, well equipped kitchen. TV’s worked from a single remote!! The view over the lake was beautiful and calm inducing. The notebook of house details and places to go was very informative. Joe’s fast responses to what I’m sure were dumb questions were appreciated. This was my first AirBnB experience. It could not have gone any better. I’ll certainly return to Lone Pine and wholeheartedly recommend it.

    David2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Joe’s place was a perfect location! Close to the dunes and downtown Glen Arbor.

    Becky2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Joe's was just the best. The cottage was clean and quaint, with stunning front-row views of Little Glen Lake and Alligator Hill. It was so peaceful; you couldn't hear a thing except the water. The cottage was secure and in a safe place; the bed was comfortable, with a cozy setup; the kitchen had everything we needed. We used the fire pit one night for s'mores, and we used the kayaks one evening. We also appreciated Joe's recommendations to eat at Art's Kitchen, watch the sunset from Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive marker #9, and hike Pyramid Point. We also kayaked the Crystal River (a must-do) and drove up to Leland to explore Fishtown. There were so many fun things to do in this area, and we ended it with peace of mind that we had Joe's to return to. He checked in about halfway through our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. We appreciated it. We'll definitely be back to Sleeping Bear, and when we return, we hope we can stay at Joe's again.

    Amy2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • The location is perfect for those looking to explore Sleeping Bear Dunes! It is also a great location to watch the sun and moon rise over the lake. Joe is a great host and was quick to respond to anything we needed. He provided a great list of things to do and his home is perfect for families with toddlers. We cannot wait to come back again and visit!

    Melinda2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Joe’s house is amazing:) This was our second trip there and it was just as perfect as we remembered! Ideal location, beautiful lake, and all the comforts of home! Joe communicates very quickly and was super helpful with trail ideas for our family and local things to do. We loved our stay and can’t wait to return!

    Kevin2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Tootsie was a lovely and warm host and The Drake was everything we had hoped for. The location was perfect and the small cottage was a great size for me, my husband and our two-year- old. We loved having coffee on the dock in the morning, eating outside on the porch, meeting the lovely neighbors and using the fire pit with them at night. The cottage was clean and cozy with everything we needed. Thanks Tootsie!

    Christine2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • The place is very clean, right across from GLEN Lake and perfect for 2 people. I got the place for my parents so they could join us on our vacation up there. They were both very happy with both the cottage and its location. Very close to everything worth doing up near GLEN Arbor and the dunes. Great place.

    Brian2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is well stocked with all necessities minus sheets which we knew. Cute little cabin in a nice quiet location. Easy checkin. Tootsie was prompt in answering my question. Loved my stay and would certainly go back.

  • I only spent a week at Comfy Corners, but it was perfect. The weather held out, the cottage was clean, orderly, and it had cable and television. This was a prime location on Glen Lake. It's perfect got those couples looking just get away, and relax together.

    Jacob2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • This rental unit was great. The rental company was responsive, the unit was very clean, and overall a great place to stay. The unit itself was about the size of a small hotel room containing a full size bed, dining table, refrigerator and small kitchen. It had everything one would need to stay for a while. The unit is located behind the main house which is located across the street from Little Glen Lake. The unit had a very small dock that could be used to sit and enjoy the lake, however it was almost always in the shade so don't expect to catch to many rays while on it. Overall the little cottage is very delightful. I would definitely recommend it to future travelers.

Even though the weather was rainy, the fall colors seemed to be at peak. There are several wineries and microbreweries within a 15-20 minute drive. We would definitely rent the house again.

After a fun day at the lake, you'll drift effortlessly to sleep in your king bed. Once your little ones have emerged from their twin beds, spend the day taking advantage of the community amenities that sit just a few hundred feet from the property. There is a small beach, dock, fire pit, lounge chairs, boats, picnic tables, and more located on the shores of the beautiful lake.
    Take a short 400-foot walk to Little Glen Lake and make a splash! You'll be able to swim or explore in a rowboat, canoe, pedal boat or kayak without even having to get in the car. This expansive lake's tropical colors and sandy bottom will transport you to the island feel the second you enter. For some high-octane fun, head 1 mile down the road to Sleeping Bear Dunes and try the Dune Climb or the bike path right behind the property. Whether you choose to run up the wind-blown sand or simply watch your friends do it from the picnic area, this beautiful area is the perfect place to spend an afternoon. When you don't feel like cooking, check out some of the delicious restaurants that Glen Arbor has to offer. You'll find everything from American cuisine at Art's Tavern to French fare at Blu.

  • This location is perfect for a romantic getaway, Robb and Jeanine are great host's. They left a bottle of wine and chocolate on the dining table , which was a nice touch . The site has everything you need, "except food and clothes" for a great glamping experience. The only issue we had, was that the porta john is kind of far from the camper, which can be an inconvenience for some people, especially at night. It would be nice to have more than one porta john. I highly recommend this site for anyone who is looking for one of those Tim Allen Pure Michigan getaways!

  • This was my second time back and my boyfriend’s first time. I wanted to bring him because it’s such a special place. We had a wonderful time! The outdoor shower in the pine forest is incredible, we cooked over an open fire and used the outdoor kitchen as well. Rob left us little thoughtful gifts inside the Moon Unit :) Camp Moon Shadow hold a special place in my heart ❤️ Thank you!

    Mary Ann2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Super well organized camp ground. The moon unit camper is retro and fun. Robb and Jeannie left snacks for us, and there were towels for use in the shower facility. It was a neat glamping experience.

    Virginia2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • The Shasta at Camp Moonshadow exceeded my expectations in every respect. Robb was very gracious and hospitable. There were nice touches in the trailer like local wine and chocolate. The kitchen area has absolutely everything a camper might need down to the marshmallow roasting forks. The shower was warm and got warm quickly which was very nice. The camp was conveniently located and was the perfect place to launch for surfing and hiking in the area. I will be telling my friends to stay at Camp Moonshadow.

    Joe2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • The camp was setup nicely. I only stayed for one night and wish I could have stayed longer. I really enjoyed the group campfire and the outdoor shower.

    Holly2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Rural, rustic, and camping style facility. If that is your intent, then this place is superb. We were bicycle through on tandem. The proximity to Sleeping bear dunes and the associated trails was excellent. As to the facilities the experience was amazing. Most of the place is excellent tent sites ina pine forest. Vertically separated with private distance between. We chose the 1959 shasta camper experience. A bit more money but offered the most comfortable bed we could have expected. It was like a soft nest. Warm blankets. Clean interior. Games provided. Inside and outdoor tables in private space. Lights, electricity, and a fire pit already pre-loaded with kindling and logs. The overall facility was well planned and stocked. A common covered kitchen. A separate common covered dining area. A shower trailer with an indoor changing space and hot water; enhanced with an outdoor area also with a changing area and two shower heads around a tree also with hot water. Totally worth a repeat visit. The hosts were available and pleasant. Thoughtfully planned for good experiences. We final thoughts were as much community or privacy that you wanted. Great job!!!

    Beautiful 3 bedroom, two full baths , with wrap around deck in a natural setting , adjacent to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Kitchen is large and open to the dining/living space with cathedral ceiling. House is decorated with art and sculpture .
    Adjacent to the Sleeping Bear Lakeshore , far enough off the road for pets and very peaceful and quiet. Great location between Glen Arbor and Empire and close to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Lake Michigan and Glen Lake
  • Perfect house to visit in the winter (probably summer too!) - we brought groceries, the dog, and spent the weekend tromping around in the snow and enjoying how beautiful the country is this part of Michigan. Unlike a lot of Airbnbs, they really have a full kitchen and so we didn't have to ad hoc anything - we were pretty snowed in the first night and it was so quiet and warm. Wonderfully cozy home to be surrounded by feet of snow and read a book, hike the dunes nearby, and relax. I can only imagine what fun stuff there is here in the summers, highly recommend!

    Alex2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nancy’s place was comfortable and cozy for our family getaway. Great location, beautiful spot, well equipped and very clean! We’d love to come back!

    Jessica2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place and within a 10 minute drive to Empire. The fire pit at night was great. Nancy’s place was very clean and spacious, we would definitely stay there again.

    Andrew2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • This is a charming and very livable home that is close enough to everything and just far enough away to feel like an escape. You can run to town for wine and cheese and enjoy it by the fire in 20 minutes. Perfect.

    Jennifer2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Nancy’s place was a sparkling clean, very attractive house on beautiful property with lovely gardens. Very close to Glen Arbor and Empire! We very much enjoyed our stay!

    Molly2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nancy's home is very welcoming, really cozy and comfortable. The garden is very peaceful and beautiful! There is a fire place, a swing, a hammock, a grill and a cute pond!

  • Beautiful home and surroundings! Nancy was responsive and the home perfectly comfortable for our weekend getaway. Close to all the seasonal sights and activities in the area.

    Elisa2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • This was our third stay at Nancy's Garden, and it was as wonderful as always. The location is great, the garden and house are spacious and beautiful. The layout of the house and the large kitchen are perfect for cooking and relaxing. We love the view of the garden, pond, and forest outside her sliding glass doors. We look forward to visiting again next year.

  • 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!

  • Morgan and Hilary provide you all that the description states and more. We were greeted with a little guest basket! Great place and location!

  • 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!
