5/5 Excellent

Perfect for families with small children
The home was clean, had everything we needed and was just like the pictures we saw on the VRBO website. Glen Lake is a beautiful spot and the proximity to the Dunes was nice too. We had plenty of space for 6 adults and small children. I will use this home again.

5/5 Excellent

Fabulous Lake House!
Beautiful lake house with fantastic views of Little Glen Lake and the dunes. Unbelievable waterfront. The home was extremely clean, updated and slept a large multi family reunion comfortably. Nice attention to detail with guest amenities. Home was very well equipped. Bob was friendly and very communicative. I would highly recommend this property and will be back in the future.
