Glen Arbor Happenings...

Glen Arbor experienced a shortage of restaurants last Summer. To fill in the gap, we're pleased to see several new options to indulge the tastebuds...

• Inn & Trail Gourmet for coffee, grab & go items for a picnic, specialty foods and more!

• L’chayim deli, with successful locations in Beulah and Frankfort, coming soon to downtown Glen Arbor.

• Discover a food truck called “Fried,” brought to you by Crystal River Outfitters, in the open lot next to the new kayak livery.

• Beyond Glen Arbor, try the Shipwreck Café in Empire for some of the best, fresh sandwiches around. 

...What a relief for our local food purveyours, although Art’s Tavern, Cherry Public House or Western Avenue Grill may still be worth the wait.

Glen Arbor Running Bear Run Tuesday, July 26th

Proud to sponsor the 5K race with medal categories for all ages starting at 9am in front of Cherry Republic. >> Event Link

Ready to run at the starting line in the fun run last year. An exceptional event, indeed! The race, so ably organized by the Glen Arbor Women’s Club, raises scholarship funds for our Glen Lake School's seniors.

Too, the Glen Arbor Solstice ½ Marathon is Saturday, June 18th. >> Learn more

Either of these events work for you? 


As of this writing, cancellations for a suite June 13th-15th and another June 25th-27th. Plus, single nights available throughout the Summer.

>> Reserve your stay

Then rooms open beginning August 13th-16th, which happens to include the last day of the Polka Fest in Cedar. Give it a try? Polka your heart out!

Community Spotlight:

County-wide fiber-based Broadband

Have you reflected, as you come into Glen Arbor, on what may be happening behind the scenes among those who serve and host you? These are our neighbors and friends, the creators and entrepreneurs and problem solvers, that glue this community together. It takes everyone putting their heads together to bring the services you enjoy.

One of the most exciting of those initiatives is the county-wide fiber-based Broadband Project. Stimulus money that came our way is being directed to isolated areas that do not connect to any cable, wireless or cellular provider. Believe it or not, that’s more than 20% of the County.

New towers will reach to the Grand Traverse Lighthouse on the north, farms outside Empire on the south, and calls with “dead spots” you have experienced along M22 in between.

Woodhull _ Claflin Weekly July 5th 1873_GABB.jpg

Historic Spotlight:

Woodhull & Claflin’s Weekly dated July 5, 1873

What a find! This small piece of newspaper, used as insulation in our historic inn, was discovered hidden under five layers of wallpaper when we renovated in 2001. Such a fascinating artifact. We peeled it up in the front bedroom, helping us date when the inn – originally a boarding house for loggers – was built on the main corner in Glen Arbor. A joy to imagine all the guests who entered this house to find warm hospitality over the years. 

Another recipe from Laura's Kitchen...

“That’s got to be the best waffle I’ve had in my entire life!” a blissed out anonymous guest exclaimed.

Well shucks! What a complement. Take this simple recipe and make the waffle magic happen in your own kitchen.
