We opted to have more space by staying in one of the cottages behind the B&B. It was very clean and incredibly quiet. It does not include breakfast so we cooked one and went to Good Harbor Grill for the other. (Cottage could use new pans but we managed) We forgot coffee but there was some in the cupboard so...

We are so pleased that you loved Dean's Cottage. It is perfect, isn't it, for anyone wanting a larger space? New pans are definitely on this list for purchasing over the winter. See you again soon.

We have stayed at the Glen arbor B&B several times. It has been years since we have and found our stay this time just as wonderful as the other times. It is such a quaint old house. In such a great location. You can walk to all the local shops and restaurants or just hang out on their large front...

My husband stayed at the Glen Arbor Bed and Breakfast for an end of summer getaway. It was wonderful. The best things about this place are the location-right in the heart of Glen Arbor with easy access to everything the area has to offer and Katie, the woman who runs the place. She made us wonderful breakfasts and accommodated our...

So pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the inn. Thank you too for your compliments about Katie and her breakfasts. Terrific, isn't she? We promise, too, that the TV in the King's Room will see an upgrade over the winter. Thank you so much for reminding us.

This was my favorite stop on the trip. The B & B is charming with a large porch and the innkeeper serves a delicious breakfast. The town is a couple of blocks long with stores catering to tourists, but in a nice way. You can walk to the beach, or take a short drive to Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore. I...

Thank you for your compliments about the inn and Glen Arbor. We are very proud of everything we can offer our guests. Very special, isn't it, including a few squeaky floors that come with a charming house that began as a boarding house for loggers in the 19th century. Hope you loved the very modern décor and amenities as well.

We're a family of four and lucked out in getting a last-minute cancellation in the largest room in this B&B, one with a king sized bed and two sleep chairs that open into beds. The hostess, Katie, was very hospitable and quite knowledgable about the history of the area. She also serves a lovely breakfast! The property is very clean,...

This B&B is fantastic, walkable location to an adorable town. The room was clean. The woman who ran this place was very nice, friendly and helpful. It is located right across the street from a restaurant/bar.

This was a very nice place to stay for our first B&B. The woman who ran it was very nice and helpful, and had a nice breakfast for us both days we were there. It is located right across the street from a restaurant/bar that plays music in the evening, which was ok for us but others may prefer a...

We were delighted to host you and so pleased that you enjoyed our "heart-of-town" location, breakfasts and striking rooms. As you can see from the many reviews that have been posted, any oversight by our housekeepers is definitely a fluke. Guests have consistently noted that the inn is clean, clean, clean...that's our signature.

This B & B is in a fantastic, walkable location to an adorable town. It's just across from the IGA which has pretty great food for such a small store. Got some great food items to bring as gifts .
