My husband and I were attending an out of town wedding, and opted to stay at the B&B in Glen Arbor instead of booking a hotel in nearby Traverse City. We’ve been to TC many times and wanted to try something new, near sleeping near dunes. We’ve never stayed at a B&B, and my husband was especially skeptical of the entire concept prior to our stay (“B&Bs are so girly!”🤪) Well, I’m happy to report my husband is now a B&B believer!! We were both incredibly surprised at how wonderful the experience was. Laura (the innkeeper) was so hospitable and kind. We were blown away by her attention to detail, and how she somehow managed to make our “contactless” check-in during covid completely warm and welcoming. Due to all the covid restrictions at the time of our stay, there wasn’t a lot of interaction between guests or with Laura, but we kept remarking to eachother how well taken care of we felt despite the social distancing, right down to meals being delivered to our door. We stayed in the Kings room and it surpassed our expectations. The breakfast was amazing... the inn is steps away from the water and shopping... sleeping bear dunes is very nearby... it was truly a perfect stay, and we will be back for sure!

Stayed here for a last minute weekend getaway. Clean, quiet, and in a great location. The innkeeper was very kind and helpful, and our homemade gourmet breakfasts were delivered to our rooms. I would highly recommend staying here, and will consider it again for our next trip to GA.

This inn was a charming place to stay. It was set in a small town with interesting shops and within a short walk of Lake Michigan. The innkeeper, Laura, was friendly, helpful and available if needed. The food was wonderful and abundant. We will definitely return!

Everything about our stay here from the booking confirmation to check out was perfect! The whole place was spotless! Laura was fantastic! She made the most amazing breakfasts, recommended hiking trails and also provided excellent choices for dinner spots! Would highly recommend this B&B! We will be back!!!

This was our second time back and second time absolutely floored at how much we enjoyed everything! Glen Arbor is such a great town, we’ve been in October and July and each season has its own special touch on the town and it is absolutely beautiful. The distance to Sleeping Bear and all the close by towns on M22 make it easy to have a calm relaxed trip or do more exploring if wanted :) The Inn and it’s wonderful innkeeper are even better! Lots of wonderful sanitation stations with necessary products and a great streamlined check in process! All the rooms we’ve stayed in are wonderful, comfortable, and clean. The breakfast we had were simply some of the best breakfasts we’ve had :) Laura, the innkeeper and breakfast mastermind, was so helpful and kind especially with finding fun activities to do around the area! We enjoy our stay here from start to finish each time and are already starting to plan our return again!
