Perfect Lake Location

5 star rating

“Our family has been a guest at Glen Lodge for over 20+ years. We have enjoyed all the units over the years. Each unit is fully equipped for a comfortable stay – if not ask and you shall receive! Ed and his family are more than accommodating at making sure your stay is enjoyable.

The location of the lodge is ideal. Just minutes to Sleeping Bear Dunes as well as downtown Glen Arbor which are both easily accessible by car, foot or bicycles which are provided at the lodge.

The water is within steps from each unit. A floating dock is further out in the water which is used for sunbathing, resting or just taking a book to get away from it all! The lake can be enjoyed in the evening for outdoor dining, with grills and patio tables available in each unit. Later in the evening the fun continues at the large outdoor fire pit which is shared by all the units. Nothing better that some of the stories we have heard from Ed as well as a number of guests throughout the years!! Our children have had great childhood memories at Glen Lodge and now as adults as they have included their spouses in a fun week!

Don’t miss out on Glen Lodge.”

It’s Our Family Tradition

“This coming Labor Day (2017) will be our 7th year staying with Ed at the Glen Lodge! He and his family make it such a wonderful experience for us! We are not ‘repeat” vacation people, but this place is so magical that it keeps us coming back year after year! It is our favorite vacation spot and the best way to close out the summer! You can rent out the entire place with family and friends…which we have done…or just rent one of the units and that works perfect too! It truly is an awesome place and an awesome experience!”

Beautiful in the Fall

5 star rating

“We’ve stayed with the Ricker family a few times. Always a wonderful relaxing vacation. Beautiful area, breathtaking sites and great food. Can’t beat the location, near the dunes, near Glen Arbor, close to wineries and shops. Hiking thru Sleeping Bear Dunes is priceless and Glen Haven is a charming stop full of history and a great museum.”

Always a Great Experience!

5 star rating

“We have stayed at the Glen Lodge many, many times over the past 20+ years. The suites are always clean and stocked with everything needed for a great family vacation!

This is one of the best locations in the area!

Not only is it on Big Glen Lake, but it is within minutes of the Dune Climb, the Heritage Bike Trail, Lake Michigan and all of the fun shops Glen Arbor has to offer! Thank you to Ed and your family for a great vacation experience!”

Fantastic Week!

5 star rating

“Glen Lodge worked out perfectly for our family get together. It has been over 20 years since we stayed at the lodge and it is better than ever. The three suites made for great fun for the grandchildren, children and grandparents. The spacious lake front property, the dock and the swimming raft all got plenty of use during our stay. I can’t say enough about the hospitality the Ricker family showed us. We will be going back for many years to come.”
