“Doesn't get any better...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

Just got back from a weekend in Glen arbor and it was fantastic. My husband participated in the M-22 challenge -- kayaking, biking, and running--and (for the 3rd time) we stayed at the Glen Arbor B&B. From the time we arrived, to be greeted warmly by our friendly innkeeper, Katie, to the time we left after an amazing breakfast of freshly made pecan pancakes, the weekend was pretty much ideal. While my husband biked, I made myself comfortable on the large porch in a wicker chaise (cup of coffee in hand) as I waited to encourage him on his way by. Katie guided us to great food options in the area -- she knows everyone!--and the other guests were warm and friendly as well. We'll be back next year, if not before....

Room Tip: Every room is different, each with its own charm.

Travelling in Northern Michigan with a friend mid-May and really enjoyed our stay at the Glen Arbor B&B. We had the Sleeping Bear Suite and appreciated the extra space, comfy beds and convenience of the en suite bathroom. Katie & Jeff were very welcoming and have great local knowledge about things to see and do in the area. Really couldn't have been more helpful hosts. Hearty breakfasts set us up for the day...hopefully you'll be there on a 'waffle' morning! A bit pricey, but worth it! Within walking distance of shops and restaurants in Glen Arbor and only a block from Lake Michigan and gorgeous sunsets. What more could you ask?

Room Tip: Recommend the Sleeping Bear Suite, located on at the back of the house. Quiet, spacious room with e...

Our group of 9 long time friends had the entire inn to ourselves for 4 nights in late September. We enjoyed the beautiful front porch and comfortable accommodations. The IGA store across the street was certainly handy as was the ability to walk to several restaurants.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the two room suite on the main floor.

We stayed last weekend for 2 nights and completely enjoyed this home. Katie and Jeff we fabulous hosts and breakfast both days was fabulous. You can not beat this location in Glen Arbor which is one of Michigans Gems... Hope to visit again next year and bring our bicycles to enjoy all the great trails! If all bed and breakfast are like this we will never stay in a hotel again!

Room Tip: King room is awesome!

We stayed here for 3 nights in late August. It was a great location for exploring Sleeping Bear Dunes. Right in the middle of little town of Glen Arbor so a short walk to several restaurants, shops, and the beach. Our host Kate was most helpful in advising us on sightseeing and especially winery locations. Nice wrap around porch and back yard for relaxing. We had the Queen room, which was a little tight but adequate (it was all that was available when we booked). Property Internet service was intermittent on my iPad. Breakfasts were all delicious. Highly recommend and would return again.

Room Tip: If you like extra room, ask for the upstairs suite or one of the cabins out back.

We stayed four nights at this B&B in early July. Staff was vey helpful in making reservations that allowed us to have three rooms on all four nights in mid-season. Just before our stay, staff took the initiative to contact us with an even better plan for the rooms so we did not have to change rooms. The B&B is located on the main street of Glen Arbor, so you get some traffic noise, but you are also centrally located within easy walking diatance of most restaurants, the grocery store and the beach. The location worked well for us. We had three families gathering so we needed places to meet and talk. The B&B well equiped for conversation with a large living room, the dining room and the huge front porch. We gravitated to the porch day and night for snacks and conversation and found ourselves giving impromptu reviews of the inn at the request of passersby. We had fun. The rooms were very nice and breakfast was substantial. One of our party was watching carbs and when asked, the staff went out of its way to make eggs. Returning to Glen Arbor, this B&B would be our first choice. Once you have researched the alternatives you will also find it can be a very good value.
