Welcome to Glen Lodge
The waters of Glen Lake are crystal clear and is the fifth most beautiful lake in the world, according to National Geographic. The hard sand bottom and very gradual descent make it very safe for families with small children. The lake is great for all types of activities including boating, swimming and fishing. There is a boat launch, and marina in very close proximity. We also maintain three anchor moorings for guest’s boats.
The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Shoreline and Glen Arbor was designated in 2011 as the most beautiful area in the United States by Good Morning America, as a result of a national survey of the top 10 in America. Guests can bike the new Heritage Trail along the west shores of Lake Michigan. In addition, the beaches on the Lakeshore, Empire & Glen Arbor as the best in entire Great Lakes area as reported by the Great Lakes Authority in Chicago. All of our suites are located on the lower level and walk out to the beach. Boats and Kayaks can be rented locally.
“Last summer marked the twentieth consecutive year that we have stayed at Glen Lodge with our extended family and it never fails to be the highlight of our summer. The Ricker family has always provided exceptional hospitality and made us feel as if we were one of their own. My family would mutiny if the trip to Glen Lake was not planned for the summer!”
