Surf Song on Lake Michigan

Surf Song on Sleeping Bear Bay - Just north of Glen Arbor, and nestled under towering pines and oaks with miles of soft sandy beach on its doorstep sits this peaceful waterfront haven.  Set back from the water for privacy, and with a slight elevation, it offers dramatic views and memorable sunsets over Sleeping Bear Bay and the Manitou Passage.  As its name suggests, many a day has been spent relaxing on the deck or playing on the beach with the ever-present sound of the bay washing away the stresses of life back in the real world.

3 Bedrooms / 2 Bathroom, sleeps 8

Property Description

This comfortable cottage has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, with a fully furnished kitchen, family rooms on each level with flat screen TVs and comfy seating.  It sleeps up to 8.  With the rental of the cottage comes the use of a canoe and 3 bikes.

You enter the cottage on the upper level which houses the kitchen, dining room, and living room with split stone fireplace on the north side and master bedroom and bath on the south.  The master bedroom with queen bed has French doors opening onto the deck.

The walk-out lower level has another large family room, with fold-out sofa bed, large flatscreen tv and a woodstove, along with two bedrooms – one with a queen bed and another with two twins.  There is also a full bathroom and laundry area.

The large deck off of the upper level offers a variety of comfortable seating, an outdoor dining table and charcoal grill.  From the deck you have fantastic views of the beach and the Manitou Passage beyond.

Heading down towards the beach, you pass the hammock strung up in the shade of the pines, and a fire pit area that’s tucked into the dune.  From there it’s just a few sandy steps down the path to the beach and the clean, clear waters of Lake Michigan.

The cottage is just one of about a dozen on this quiet, private road, and is surrounded by Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore land with miles of pristine beach and scenic hiking trails. 

Surf Song has been owned by the same family for the past 34 years, and is being made available to select guests for the first time in 2012.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to reserve a week for your family this summer.
