Welcome to Glen Arbor

Glen Arbor is an area of natural beauty located within the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Lake Shore and along M-22, one of America's most scenic drives. Some highlights of the area include, kayaking, charter fishing on the Great Lakes, dune climbs, day hikes on scenic trails to majestic vistas overlooking Lake Michigan, a ferry boat to the Manitou Islands, an educational sailing trip on a replica schooner or simply exploring the area’s many wineries.


Small coastal villages like Glen Arbor, Leland and Suttons Bay have an array of shops with local artisans, stores and food. Smoked fish is a favorite in Leland and Lake Michigan Whitefish is a local favorite at many restaurants.

Downtown Glen Arbor is just a short walk from LeBear.

Looking for the excitement of a larger city, while still experiencing the Up North coastal feel? Traverse City is a beautiful 27 mile drive from LeBear.
