Welcome to the Glen Lake area, home to Big and Little Glen Lakes, including the quaint areas of Glen Arbor, Empire, Burdickville, and the Narrows, located amidst the The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

Explore the Natural Beauty of the area – year round!

Discover the variety of  Things to Do | Shop, Dine, Relax, Renew and Recreate.

Play and Stay in Glen Arbor, then set out for your tour around the Leelanau Peninsula on M-22, and don’t miss the Wine Trails! Although summer is the most popular time to visit, our area is a fall color-tour destination for scenic drives, PLUS it’s a great spot go skiing, ice-skating, snowshoeing, and ice-fishing throughout the winter.

“No matter the season, the Glen Lake area is a perfect outdoor getaway.”


Step away from the hustle and get refreshed in the natural beauty around Glen Arbor. Find a new trail to hike, a new view from a hilltop, shop the great stores, buy a piece of local art; Try a new item on the menu, get a new book to read. Meet a friend, find a new friend! Drive around, hike around, bike around. Take in the smell of fresh air, woods, meadows, beaches, hilltops, dunes, and aqua-colored lake water.

The Glen Lake area has something to offer everyone.

Plan your next visit soon!
