The Glen Lake area is home to Glen Arbor, Empire, Burdickville, and the Narrows. These four towns encompass Big and Little Glen Lakes. Most well known for being located in the midst of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The Glen Lake Area is a nature-lovers paradise. Swim, bike, run, and enjoy the most beautiful bluffs in America! What an amazing place to visit or call home.
Sleeping Bear Dunes
It was named “The Most Beautiful Place in America” in 2011, but it remains the quaint and slower paced area it always was. Almost half the acreage of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is located within the Township of Glen Arbor. This location grows its population from just under 1000 year-round residents to 5,000+ in the summertime. Everyone wants to come and enjoy the spectacular views, hikes, and swimming that Glen Arbor has to offer. My kids love hiking up the dunes!
Glen Arbor Township is comprised of many natural features. For instance, you will find forests, dunes, inland lakes, rivers, islands, and Lake Michigan. Locals, or those visiting the area in the summer, can partake in canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, biking, sailing, and swimming – just to name a few. However, summer isn’t the only fun time in Glen Arbor! Wintertime is also full of fun and opportunity for physical activity! Try snowshoeing, cross country skiing, or some ice fishing!
Downtown Glen Arbor is full of walkable shopping opportunities intermixed with wineries and amazing restaurants. For example, Glen Arbor Wines is located between Glen Arbor’s busy M22 strip and the sandy public beach. A perfect spot to grab a tasting and purchase a bottle to go. Home to an awesome school district as well, Glen Lake area is an amazing place to call home! Contact me today and we can find your new Home Up North!
