The innkeepers at the Sylvan Inn make you feel like family from the moment you walk in the door. From the delicious breakfasts of fresh fruits, pastries, and local favorites like cherry hot chocolate to the expert advice on where to see the most romantic sunset and which kayak trip provides the best views, Rose and Ralph can't be beat. They even made dinner reservations for us at a cozy little Italian restaurant that had the best food and wine this side of Italy. The location of the inn is walking distance from some of the best boutique shopping and restaurants in Glen Arbor and a short hike from the water. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation that you won't soon forget, the Sylvan Inn is the place to go.

I've gone to Glen Arbor every year since before I can remember, and I've always loved it. It' is a special place to me and my family. Usually, we rented a room in the Homestead, which was very pleasent. Then, last year, the Homestead could not fit us in, being the crowded place it is. So, we rented a room at the Sylvan Inn. I went there, thinking that I would not like it half as much as the Homestead, but I was wrong. I absolutely loved the Sylvan. Apart from being conveniently placed in the town, it has a wonderful staff and pleasent living quarters. The aptmosphere is so welcoming, that the second you walk in the door, it feels like home.
