Looking for a memorable family vacation next to the crystal clear water of Glen Lake? Our Southview Suite is one of 3 lower level lodge accommodations, so if your family-of-4 trip turns into a family reunion for 16, we have rooms at the Glen Lodge! Guests enjoy the 126' lake frontage and huge grass yard (great for games and eating outside).
The natural beauty of North West Michigan’s Leelanau Peninsula will stay with you until you return. Our Lake Michigan beaches are the best in the Great Lakes - according to the Great Lakes Authority in Chicago.
Sleeping arrangement: Large king-sized room suite; sofa bed, full-sized Murphy bed. Full bathroom.
Our close proximity to Glen Lake, Lake Michigan, and The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Shoreline (2 miles away) comes in handy when its time to do some quick local exploring, shopping, and dune climbing. Just how unique is this greater Glen Lake area? Good Morning America calls it the most beautiful area in the United States. Come see for yourself. Toss in a unique day trip to Traverse City, MI, (just 25 miles).
Since you book directly with us (The Ricker’s), we can offer local knowledge so everyone will love their Glen Arbor, MI, vacation. The mode of transportation is up to you: Foot, bike, ski, car, or boat.
With 7000-acre Big Glen Lake out the front door, let your waterpark adventure begin. Our beach area is very safe for families with small children and has a gradual drop off. Teens will love swimming out to the raft. All ages will relish the boating, swimming and great bass fishing.
No matter how you fill your days, the evening at the Glen Lodge are special too. Gather around the fire pit (wood Provided) for stories and marshmallows. There are several reasons to stay at Southview Suite, no matter what the season! Spring’s mild temps and fewer crowds provide quiet times. Summer events and happenings are endless - from brew festivals to the Manitou Music Festival and local farmer’s market, summertime in town and on the lake is in full swing. The self-guided color tours in fall are memorable.
Year round trails include the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail, and the hiking trails turn into Cross Country Skiing & Snowshoeing trails. The car-free Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail is new.
