Guestbook comments from the owner
We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at Glenwoods Cottage. In fact it was too short. I appreciated the fact that there were no surprises with this cottage. It was exactly as presented. Fully equipped, comfortable beds, plush towels, and nice showers in the bathrooms. The beach was lovely and very private. Thank you!

This is a lovely home to stay at early in the summer! We had a wonderful time on the beach! We took walks down country roads, went strawberry picking, biking, shopping, just lounging the day away. Very nice! Pictures depicted it perfectly. It was very clean with no concerns that we could see. We had a wonderful time and would love to come back one day.

A GREAT CHOICE

  • 5 of 5
Ridgeway Cottage was the setting for our annual family vacation. Three generations gathered for a week of beach time, sightseeing in South Haven and Saugatuck, blueberry picking, eating, and playing games (including a fun scavenger hunt and an evening "bear hunt."). The cottage was everything it said it would be...clean, comfortable, well equipped, in a quiet neighborhood, and close to the private beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Lake Michigan. Thanks for a great stay!

EXCELLENT IN ROUND TWO

  • 5 of 5
We had another wonderful 4th week at this cute cottage. My previous review (Aunt Leenie) stands, so I won't repeat. We appreciated Rob providing a high chair and portacrib. That made life easier. It's a great spot, great neighborhood and we love the easy access to the beach and surrounding areas. And, beach towels were provided - an added bonus. Thanks, Rob, for enabling another wonderful family week.

GREAT TIME WITH GREAT FRIENDS!

  • 4 of 5
This cabin is fabulous! We stayed here last fall and fell in love. We came back this fall with a different group of friends and they couldn't believe how awesome this place was! The cabin is cute, cozy and a great place to gather. Plus, only a couple minute walk to the beach to watch the sunset and a great place to have a bonfire and tell stories. We cooked the entire weekend with local produce. This is a great place to get away from the busy way of life.

GREAT PICK!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous 4th of July family vacation at this property! Rob was great to work with and answered a lot of questions in advance. The large capacity for sleeping is due to the downstairs - a queen sized bed in a room and twin bunk beds in another room and upstairs - a huge room with two queen sized beds and another room with a queen sized bed and a twin or a double. Plenty of hooks in the rooms and bathroom for hanging up towels. Because of a lovely wooded setting, there is no need for curtains for privacy, but we had to rig up a window cover for a 3 year old's naptime. We loved the outside shower - although there were two full-sized baths in the house, one up, one down. Everyone ended up using the outside one - it is enclosed, regular fixtures and plenty of hot water. The house was clean and spacious. The frog pond was a charming feature which our 3 year old granddaughter loved. The beach is a short walk and then 91 steps down. It was doable for a fit 78 year old as well as a very pregnant woman... just slow going. It was great being able to have the dog with us and she loved the beach! Living space was great - two big couches downstairs, a huge table for all to eat together as well as another one on a lovely screened in porch. We enjoyed the wooded setting - no bugs, amazingly. The beach is lovely and not crowded at all. No fires are allowed on the beach - although we saw plenty. The town of Glenn, a 3 minute drive, is really quiet but it was a quick drive to a hopping' Saugatuck. We loved the farms in the area and went blueberry picking. It's a great area for bicycling - flat and quiet roads. We really liked that it was away from the very busy Saugatuck area, and that it was so close to the beach, yet accessible to "activity". Holland is really a drive at 30 minutes, so the local IGA is the best option for in-between a big stock up. Great Wi-Fi, kitchen was well stocked with utensils/pots and pans, dish towels. It was really great not having to bring any bedding or linens - other than beach towels. We also appreciated the outdoor clothes line, gas grill, and garage recycling bins. Thanks, Rob, for a very memorable family vacation!

ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE IN LATE FALL

  • 4 of 5
Used in late October. Nice, woodsy feel (lots of wood) but very clean and tidy. Gas (wood)stove provided alittle firelight for ambiance. Modern force-air furnance kept us nice and toasty. Fully furnished, from kitchen and bath, to bedrooms (very nice). Quite comfortable for four adult couples. Two bedrooms on main floor + fold-out sleeper sofa. Two bedrooms upstairs. Large indoor dining table with bench seating provided ample room for family-style meals. Screened (mostly enclosed but unheated) porch provided useful space, as well as additional seating that we used indoors. Nice outdoor gas grill. Fire pit area and patio area (with water feature & mini-fountain) were also enjoyed. Most appreciated (and used by me) was the availability of the outdoor shower. Hot water doesn't last for long, but it was more than adequate for my brief use. Short, 5 minute walk to private, Lake Michigan beach access. View from platform at top of stairs partially obstructed by some of surrounding tree branches. 83 (fairly steep) steps down to beach and Lake Michigan. But viewing sunsets from shoreline worth the slow climb back up the 83 steps, to the top of the hill. We found Glenn location was ideal for accessing both Saugatuck and South Haven via Bluestar Highway (A2). Saugatuck has most of the shopping, wine tasting rooms, and afew restaurants. South Haven offers afew shops, but more of the better restaurants. Also, if you need a large store grocery or pharmacy, South Haven has them. Very much enjoyed the arts & crafts type businesses between Glenn and South Haven. Highlights included TWO stops each at McIntosh Winery, and the wildly interesting antique business (look for giant, yellow, upright plastic rat). If you are an "American Pickers" type of collector, this antique place is for you. Cold, wet, windy fall weather did bring some unexpected challenges, but overall, we had a most enjoyable weekend stay at Glennwood Cottage. Owner obviously puts much effort into making this an top-notch rental. I personally appreciate his effort and service. I wouldn't hesitate to rent either this cottage, or one of his other rentals. I look forward to that next time.
