There are not an abundance of places to stay near Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore but Susan and Van's B&B is very convenient and cozy if you don't happen to be going camping! When we first arrived, I wondered if we had made a misstep as the owners' collections of various things looked a bit cluttered. But the guest room was quaint, lovely, clean and comfortable (Michigan room). We really appreciated some of the extras like homemade cookies left out in the evening - yum! Breakfast was super delicious!! Susan is a great cook!
Some of the rooms have shared baths. Ours did, in fact, but because it was prior to the busy season, the other rooms were not occupied and so we had the bath to ourselves. I thought that the price was a bit high for a shared bath scenario, but as I mentioned, there is not much in the area so I think it is a simple case of supply and demand. And they have a rather short season as well.
