From the moment you pull into the driveway, until the moment you pull out at the end of the week.... you`ll have a smile on your face. You came to the right place!
Tastefully decorated home in reds, blues and denim that just make you feel at home. While placed in an up north wooded setting, enjoy downtown Glen Arbor a block away and the ever so popular Lake Michigan or Glen Lake. Stroll past quaint shops and enjoy local ice cream from the Nation`s number one ice cream...Moomers! Tennis, Basketball, and Pickle Ball courts with a nice park are located behind the property. If sports are not your forte, then take a stroll along the long walking path!
Seeing is believing so why not reserve your week today! This home rents on a weekly basis from Saturday - Saturday during prime summer weeks.
Open the door and see the brand new hardwood floor throughout the first floor. Then you make your way to the Great Room with a vaulted, cedar planked ceiling, a gorgeous corner natural fireplace, and a “wall of windows” that lets in lots of light. New skylights provide additional brightness to both the large upstairs loft and the downstairs living area. The kitchen and dining room are open to the Great Room, with an expandable dining room table for families of every size, and a granite countertop and comfortable counter stools in the kitchen. Eat breakfast, enjoy a drink, read, or just relax on the denim and wicker screened porch that also has skylights! A flat-screen TV is located in the wooden corner cabinet off of the living room. Both bedrooms downstairs have a queen bed and large closets. A full bathroom, a linen closet with plenty of towels and linens, and a laundry room with full size washer and dryer, complete the first floor.
You’ll love the huge loft area upstairs, which includes a newly remodeled large tile shower and another linen closet big enough for hanging clothes. Upstairs you will see an easy chair and ottoman, rocking chair, another queen size bed and a spacious sitting area with a queen size sofa sleeper. Not to mention great views of both the lower level and the beautiful exterior surroundings.
The home has lots of windows to enjoy the cool nights “up north”, and air conditioning if necessary. This home is well heated and cozy for non-peak season visits.
“Glenwood” has wifi and cable (during peak season), but we know that you’re here for the outdoors. You’ve come to the right place! The home sits on a beautiful wooded lot. You’ll hear the birds chirping, and might see a variety of wildlife just out your window. In addition to the big screened porch, there are two large decks, front and back. Read in the comfortable Adirondack chairs, swing on the front porch and watch the world go by. Grill a steak or your “catch of the day” on the natural gas grill on the back deck. Enjoy a cocktail while enjoying a bonfire in the firepit (no need to pick up firewood; there’s plenty in the woodshed).
We’re sure you’ll enjoy staying at this well maintained, beautifully landscaped, newer home in gorgeous Leelanau County.
It couldn’t be better. Glenwood is located in beautiful Glen Arbor, halfway between Lake Michigan and Glen Lake. Leave your car at Glenwood, and walk or bike to town or to the beaches on either Lake Michigan or Glen Lake in five minutes or less! Stroll to the great restaurants in town, dine overlooking Lake Michigan, or enjoy an ice cream cone in no more time than it would take to drive. Browse the great galleries, bookstores, and coffee shops. Short drives to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Haven, Inspiration Point, and the fabulous Pierce Stocking Drive.
Things To Do:
First and foremost, there’s Sleeping Bear Dunes; great for kids and adults alike. Hike up (and run down) the Dune Climb, drive Pierce Stocking, spend the day at the beach, hike at Empire Bluffs or Pyramid Point, visit Fishtown in nearby Leland, or take the boat from Leland to the Manitou Islands. Looking to golf? Perfect area for that! Fantastic courses abound in Grand Traverse and Leelanau Counties, or try the miniature kind in town. Kayak, canoe, or just float down the nearby Crystal or Platte Rivers. And shop at great local shops and galleries for that special gift. Go to a concert at the Interlochen Center for the Arts or at the City Opera House in Traverse City, or try your luck at the Casino on Grand Traverse Bay. Visit one of the Peninsula’s vineyards for a wine or cider tasting. And of course, there’s the National Cherry Festival and more! You won’t lack for something to do unless you want to!
