Watt Guesthouse on Lake Michigan in Glen Arbor

vacation rental description

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.

traveler reviews for this glen arbor house rental

Wonderful vacation in lovely Glen Arbor

Review submitted: September 4, 2013   Date of arrival: July 27, 2013

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway
