Sleeping Bear Inn is located in the historic village of Glen Haven along State Highway M‐ 209. Located across from Sleeping Bear Dunes Road and Glen Haven Beach, you can take in the beautiful views across Sleeping Bear Bay, the Manitou Passage, and both North and South Manitou Islands.

Glen Haven is one of the best surviving examples of a nineteenth-century frontier cord-wood station/steamboat stop on the Great Lakes. Designated as a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places, the well-preserved nothern Michigan village on the Leelanau Peninsula includes good examples of vernacular architecture dating back to the mid-ninteenth century. The village is best known for its association with D.H. Day who owned the company town from 1881 until his death in 1928. The thirteen-acre Glen Haven Village Historic District is located within the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

Located in the Glen Haven historic district is Sleeping Bear Inn and Garage. Built in 1864-1867, the inn served as a frontier hotel providing shelter to business travelers and renting rooms to local workers. D.H. Day lived at Sleeping Bear Inn when he first arrived in Glen Haven and purchased the property in 1881.
