Little Glen Lake Cottage
Beautiful setting right on Little Glen Lake...perfect environment to relax, kick back on the dock, enjoy time kayaking on the lake, or venture out to neighboring towns, restaurants, and activities. Short drive to Glen Arbor, Empire, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and M-22 if you're up for a winding scenic drive. Walking distance to the Narrows Marina where we rented jet skis to explore both parts of Glen Lake. We really enjoyed our getaway and Katy and team were extremely responsive before and during the stay!

Fantastic lakefront cottage!
If you're looking for a fun and relaxing lake vacation in Michigan, this is your spot! Our family of five had a wonderful stay at this quaint and beautifully remodeled lakefront cottage. Activities on Little Glen Lake and neighboring Glen Lake are bountiful with kayaks on-site and boat rentals at nearby On the Narrows Marina. Close proximity to Sleeping Bear Dunes and hiking trails and only a short drive to both Empire and Glen Arbor town centers. We can't wait to return!
