Great place to stay in Glen Arbor. Located close to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, the inn has the perfect accommodations to relax after a day of hiking and exploring (jacuzzi and sauna 😍). We highly recommend walking to Art's tavern down the road, and then taking a stroll on the beach before heading back for the evening, as the beach...

We stayed at the Sylvan during our color tour. It was very clean, cute and the Breakfast was delicious. The location is in walking distance to Lake Michigan and the town. They also have a nice private hot tub and sauna.

Location is great and the room is cute. Breakfast wasn't that great. But our bathroom was disgusting with black mold on the shower curtain and vents with dust caked on them.

Quaint bed and breakfast in Glen Arbor. Close enough to walk into town. We had a room separate from the main house. It was very nice and clean. Plenty of space with a couch and table with chairs. The breakfast in the morning looked good, I only had a yogurt smoothie, which was great. It was a short stay but...

Not a problem, but might be for some. The room was ample, nice bed and a little outside deck. Breakfast is included; nothing especially...

My boyfriend and I stayed 2 nights at Sylvan Inn. The bed and breakfast has a friendly staff, GORGEOUS inn, comfortable and clean rooms, and conveniently located. I would recommend this in to anyone staying at Glenn Arbor. Some amenities and extra comforts included hot tub, sauna, beach towels if needed, coffee, DELICIOUS hot tea selection, and breakfast.

The preferred and usual feeling at a B&B is one of friendly welcome from start to finish. Not so here. No friendly greeting, smile, welcome at all. Arrival in the dining room for breakfast met with silence...nada. Small Room off parking ;lot was clean enough but hardly cozy and warm. Dreary furnishings...really need redecorated, especially considering the price charged. It...
