We opted to have more space by staying in one of the cottages behind the B&B. It was very clean and incredibly quiet. It does not include breakfast so we cooked one and went to Good Harbor Grill for the other. (Cottage could use new pans but we managed) We forgot coffee but there was some in the cupboard so...

We are so pleased that you loved Dean's Cottage. It is perfect, isn't it, for anyone wanting a larger space? New pans are definitely on this list for purchasing over the winter. See you again soon. More

Came here for memorial weekend with my two kids and we loved it! The rooms were comfortable and clean, the breakfast was amazing, and the atmosphere at the B&B was very warm and comfortable. The Bear Dunes, Scenic drive, Pyramid Point, and North Bar Lake were all close by and is where we spent most of our time. Perfect location,... More

This was my favorite stop on the trip. The B & B is charming with a large porch and the innkeeper serves a delicious breakfast. The town is a couple of blocks long with stores catering to tourists, but in a nice way. You can walk to the beach, or take a short drive to Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore. I... More

Thank you for your compliments about the inn and Glen Arbor. We are very proud of everything we can offer our guests. Very special, isn't it, including a few squeaky floors that come with a charming house that began as a boarding house for loggers in the 19th century. Hope you loved the very modern décor and amenities as well. More

We're a family of four and lucked out in getting a last-minute cancellation in the largest room in this B&B, one with a king sized bed and two sleep chairs that open into beds. The hostess, Katie, was very hospitable and quite knowledgable about the history of the area. She also serves a lovely breakfast! The property is very clean,... More

We were delighted to host you and so pleased that you enjoyed our "heart-of-town" location, breakfasts and striking rooms. As you can see from the many reviews that have been posted, any oversight by our housekeepers is definitely a fluke. Guests have consistently noted that the inn is clean, clean, clean...that's our signature. More
