Property Details

Updated: May 20, 2015
House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

We like to share our Guesthouse, which is adjacent to our year-round home, with those who care to rent a very special spot and treat it as a guesthouse. We enjoy treating you as our guests.

We are on Lake Michigan with full beach access. We look north toward the North and South Manitou Islands. The Guesthouse has a view of Lake Michigan and shares our beach access.

Privacy is important and assured. The Guesthouse access walkway is on the east side of the Guesthouse and the entry is from the deck. These are not in view from the main house. We avoid use of the deck to maintain the privacy of our guests. We have had no issues with bothering our guests or with our guests disturbing us. The walkway to the beach starts at the west side of the house, and guests walking to the beach do not look into the main house.

We are also a casual 10 minute walk from town.

We enjoy a quiet family atmosphere.

About the Owner

We love living on Lake Michigan within the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore. We look out onto the lake every day and it never grows old. This is a special spot to share with children and grand children.

David and Becky are great hosts! Their place is bright and clean and within walking distance to Glen Arbor. The new bike trail starts just up from their house.

Wonderful vacation in lovely Glen Arbor

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful family vacation at the Watt Guesthouse this summer - so nice in fact that we're returning for a fall weekend. The guesthouse is charming, very efficient space and worked perfectly for three adults. We loved the easy walk to the beautiful (private) beach on Lake Michigan and the ability to walk to town. This is a terrific home base for exploring all Glen Arbor has to offer along with the many wineries, dunes and neighboring towns.
