Wonderful Experience
It was a wonderful experience. It was very clean and the check-in checkout process was very easy and smooth. We had breakfast served to us in the morning out on the large porch which wraps around the entire Inn. Great location right in town with walking distance to many restaurants

We absolutely loved our stay! Jim and Laurie are wonderful hosts. They were so attentive to our needs and offered tips on places to park for events and things to do. The house is an historical property but extremely well maintained. The room was clean and comfortable. The huge wrap around porch was great for breakfast, quiet reading or chatting with other guests. Located just on the edge of Glen Arbor, it was an easy walk to shopping, dining, and viewing sunsets on the bay. Unique to this week was the 4th of July parade. Unique, goofy, patriotic, and so much fun! Americana at it's best!
