“Home Like and Comfy”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

The king room is perfect for travelers who like location and comfort. Walk through town, minutes to Glen Haven, rent bikes and ride to Dune Climb, and the hosts were very helpful pointing out Pyramid Point for sunsets and other really good hikes. Bed was comfy, shower was sufficient and breakfast was enjoyable and tasty. The IGA is right across the street for packing a picinic and wine.

Room Tip: The King is top notch

We've stayed at many of the Glenn Arbor B&Bs and nearby resort, and while each has been enjoyable in their own unique way, none compare to the location, cleanliness and most importantly SERVICE of Glen Arbor B&B. The proprietors, Katie and Jeff, literally devoted their entire time ensuring all aspects of our weekend were superb. From sneaking us into a booked reservation list at the restaurant we wanted, handling special diet requests, and giving great tips of local flavor, they made yet another stay with them outstanding. And nothing can beat chilling on the deck at the heart of downtown Glenn Arbor. We'll anxiously be back.

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!
