We were very pleased staying at the Glen Arbor Beach House. Jenny was a wonderful host, she made us feel very welcome, allowed us plenty of space and even gave us access to use the kitchen. Having years of experience in the area, she had lots of knowledge to share and an interesting perspective. She also gave many suggestions of places to visit, things to do, and restaurants and bars to go to.
The house was just beautiful, it was very well kept and homey. How nice to visit such a beautiful part of the world and be able to stay in a home such as this! I highly recommend staying here.
Jenny is a most welcoming, lovely host. Though the weather was a bit too rainy, we've spent a wonderful weekend in Glen Arbor, thanks to Jenny. She provided us with all kinds of information, how to make the best of our short getaway. We have been in quite some airbnb's, but this one in Glen Arbor was definitely one of the best! We can't wait to come back next summer to fully enjoy the beautiful beach and dunes. Thanks again, Jenny!
My husband and I had an impeccable experience in Glen Arbor at Jenny's home. This was our first time using Airbnb and we were a little nervous going into the trip. We fell in love with Glen Arbor two years ago when we honeymooned there. Since then, we've tried to return at least once a year. We were so excited at the opportunity to be walking distance from our favorite restaurants, the dunes, and the beautiful trails that we love to run on while still maintaining our frugal budget.
Jenny waited up for us as we were traveling later in the day and greeted us warmly at the door when we arrived. She made us feel right at home, showed us the fridge to put our food and water in and showed us the beautiful room that we would be staying in.
I think one of my favorite parts was the Teatree shampoo that was provided, hilariously enough. I loved it so much I decide to buy some when I got home. It truly was a spa like experience, towels soap and shampoo were provided and there was a beautiful skylight letting in natural light. I might also add there was cable provided, that may not seem like much to someone else but my husband and I don't usually have time to watch TV. We truly enjoyed just laying back and watching some TV together. The Internet provided was also helpful when searching out things to do in the area. Although, Jenny was our best resource she recommended great restaurants and things to do in the surrounding cities that we had never done before. Overall, I can definitely say my husband and I will be returning to Jenny's house. We felt very comfortable and welcomed into her home and would recommend the experience to anyone else looking for a calm and relaxing time away from the bustle of the city.
My Wife and I went to Glen Arbor for a quick weekend getaway. We had an amazing time, the house was fantastic, and the host was world class. Jenny makes you feel absolutely welcome and is a fantastic host. The home is beautiful, spotless, comfortable, and has a wonderful view (even in rainy weather!). The area is great and we will absolutely stay with Jenny in the future.
My husband and I spent a wonderful week in Glen Arbor in the home of Mat's mom, Jenny. She is a gracious host who made us feel welcome from the very first moment. The home is more beautiful than the photos, the second floor space for guests is clean,light, spacious and well equipped. We were able to store our breakfast foods in the refrigerator and do our laundry. There is a private beach; downtown Glen Arbor with a great selection of restaurants is a five minute walk away; and the entrance to the newly expanded Sleeping Bear Dunes Heritage Bike Trail is directly across the street from the house. Jenny's home is way better than a hotel in one of the best vacation destinations in the world!
This was our best Airbnb experience ever! Mat's mom, Jenny, owns this home, which is even more beautiful in reality than in the photos. It is located steps from downtown Glen Arbor on a private beach, and is directly across the street from the Sleeping Bear Dunes Heritage Bike trail. Guests stay on the second floor of the house: The space is bright and spacious, the bathroom fully equipped and the bed extremely comfortable. Jenny ran a bed and breakfast for many years before retiring, and so is no stranger to the fine art of hospitality. She is a warm and gracious person with whom we enjoyed talking. We stayed for a week, and were able to store breakfast items in the refrigerator to enjoy with the delicious coffee Jenny provided every morning. We were also able to do laundry, which is a great amenity for an extended stay. On our last visit to this area, we stayed in a more traditional bed and breakfast nearby. Jenny's place is infinitely superior. Highly recommend it!
