Welcome to the Sylvan Inn

Established in 1885, the Sylvan Inn is a beautifully restored bed and breakfast located in the heart of Glen Arbor, Michigan.

Stay – Relax – Enjoy


Enjoy the warm sun and natural surroundings from the comfort of an inviting rocker on our large porch and decks. Because of the Inn’s location at the west end of town, guests can enjoy the quiet beauty yet… step off the veranda and leisurely stroll to restaurants, unique shops, art galleries, nature trails and the breathtaking beaches of Lake Michigan.

Enjoy Your Stay

Drive the M-22 scenic loop around the Leelanau Peninsula, passing through the numerous quaint towns, sandy beaches, and agriculture land with our vineyards, orchards and farms.
