Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful ad infinitum
WOW...probably not enough space here for all the great things that could be said. The cabin was a perfect place for a late summer stay. Everything we needed (except food) was provided and well stocked. From TP and paper towels to condiments in the fridge. Gas grill and a nice gas fire pit just outside the cabin were all set to be used (which we did!). All of this was extremely important to us since we were coming from San Diego. Kris and Mitch met us when we arrived and gave us a walk-through from the lake dock to the cabin. Explaining everything we needed to know and answering any and all questions. Friendly, nice, warm people. Truly a pleasure to deal with. The cabin is approx 100 years old and sends you back in time to easier days. It's rustic, but with the modern conveniences of WIFI and Smart TV for watching Netflix etc. Beds were comfy and cozy. Quilts and extra blankets were on hand for the nights that got a bit chilly...which made for good sleeping :) Oh...and I can't forget the thick hotel quality towels in the bathrooms. What a nice touch. Weather is always a big question mark during late summer, but we got lucky and had low to mid 70s all week long with sunshine and a few clouds. Picked up a bit of a lake tan from sitting on the deck situated near the dock. All in all....this is a repeat place to stay. Plenty of room to accommodate a few family members that visited us while we were in Glen Arbor. Quick access to the town of Glen Arbor and again, easy access across the street to the big Glen Lake. Thank you so much Kris and Mitch!!!! I know our paths will cross again.

Wonderful location
Cute rustic cabin! We enjoyed our stay at the Blue Jay cabin. So much to do around the area and Glen Lake is awesome! The property manager, Kris, was always available and so sweet! Can’t wait until next summers vacation😉!

Slice of Heaven
From the rustic, cozy cabin complete with everything you need for a comfortable stay, to the dreamy sunrise reflections off the lake, to Kris's attentive and kind hospitality, made the Blue Jay an exceptional experience.

Lake life at it’s best!
We had an amazing stay at Bluebird Cottage. So clean and stocked with everything we needed. Loved looking at Lake from porch, kitchen and bedroom! Kris was so helpful and was right there if we had any questions! Large beach area to play in sand or have beach fires and kids loved the floating raft pass the dock! Easy access to Glen Arbor and Heritage trail, even on our bikes! Large table in screened in porch was wonderful for entire family to eat and play games We grilled out on nice gas grill few times! Wonderful mems made.

Lakeside Retreat
We love Blue Jay Cottage! This was our second year renting and will be back next season. Our kids love the lake, water sports, and especially the tree swing! They have a great deck and bonfire by the lake and an additional gas fire pit sitting area near the cottage. The house is over 100 years old and has a great laid back homey feel. The kitchen, towels, and bedding were well stocked with many upgrades from our previous trip. Welcome goodies we’re waiting at arrival as well as thank you ones before leaving. The property manager Kris made our trip fabulous and convenient, especially when my husband accidentally cracked the coffee pot! A new one was on the porch within hours! A vacation to remember. Thanks for having us and already excited to for next year!
