About the neighbourhood
The location is great because Van Cleve Park and Little Bay de Noc (Lake Michigan) are just across the street. The park is beautiful and it offers everything from a public beach (where the water is actually quite warm due to the shallow bay) to a kids playland, to a new public fishing dock. Little Bay de Noc is known as one of the best Walleye fishing areas in the country and there are local charters available. In the winter you can enjoy the Gladstone Ski Hill which also offers tubing, and snowmobiles are allowed on city streets to allow easy access to the extensive trail system. Gladstone is small enough that you can walk to a local restaurant for a meal or visit the charming specialty shops downtown.
How to get there
From US 2/41 follow Lake Shore Drive and watch for the cottage on your left. Nearest airport is Escanaba (15 minutes) or Marquette (60 minutes).
