Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This historic home, built in 1870 on an acre of land across from Big Glen Lake (no direct access), has two glass-enclosed front porches that are the center of activity. The house has three private bedrooms and a wicker day bed on one of the enclosed porches. Watch the sun set through the trees on the lake or enjoy your morning coffee as you witness the early morning light. This park-like setting includes mature walnut trees, a circular drive and access just minutes away to Lake Michigan, Big Glen Lake, Sleeping Bear Dunes and the quaint town of Glen Arbor.

In addition to the three private bedrooms (sleeps 6-8) and two full bathrooms, there is a formal dining room, living room, and kitchen. The large master bedroom on the first floor also has a convertible couch and a walk-in closet. Furnished with antiques and “Up North” Cottage character, this home is a comfortable retreat from the fun in the sun of the beaches of Lake Michigan.

Hike the dunes, have a sunset fire on the beach, kayak Crystal River, boat/ski on Big and Little Glen Lake, or just wander the town of Glen Arbor and enjoy the art galleries, restaurants, live music and the friendly people who call this corner of the world home.

Located on S. Dunns Farm Road at the base of Miller Hill Rd, this historic home once had established orchards of apples, cherries and pears, which were shipped to the Chicago market from Glen Haven. Pick up a copy of the book “Historic Cottages of Glen Arbor” by Barbara Siepker at the Cottage Book Shop on Lake Street and learn more about the history of this house. If you enjoy old world charm and the feel of a real “up north cottage” then this is the home for you.
