Make Your Plans! Experience Everything!

Special places to find. During this challenging time, not all the adventures of Glen Arbor, the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore, and the Leelanau Peninsula are open and available. Sadly, all 2020 events to at least September are cancelled. But so much is open, from water to wineries to trails to shops to limited dining. Ask us for recommendations. Make reservations. Or just let it happen. You can’t miss.


Two blocks away, the Glen Arbor Arts Center is the creative hub of the community with classes, exhibits, visiting artists, and the Plein Air Weekend.

We thank you, our guests, for participating in the GABB Community Support Fund (CSF)

The mission: support visionary non-profits to preserve the region’s natural environment, enhance historic and creative initiatives, and sustain public recreational lands. You told us how much you value these assets, as we do, by sharing in so many while you are here. These include: Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes; The Heritage Trail; Grow Benzie; Grand Traverse Lighthouse; Glen Arbor Arts Center; Traverse City Film Festival; Glen Arbor’s community festivals; the National Writers’ Series; the Glen Lake Community Library; and, to help sustain them through the winter, the Empire Food Bank. This Fund appears on your invoice as CSF (3%). If you feel that you cannot contribute to these initiatives, along with us, we will refund that amount to you.
