Glen Arbor is a quaint Northern Michigan town located in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and lies along the shores of Lake Michigan and Glen Lake. In 2011, the area was voted “The Most Beautiful Place in America” by ABC’s Good Morning America; and while we’ve seen more visitors strolling through our town, the area has still remained somewhat of a well-kept secret.
