Glenn Cottage Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4
This vintage summer cottage has views of the lake from the deck and living room, and offers a quiet getaway for newlyweds or young families with one or 2 small children. The small but serviceable kitchen has everything one would need, including coffeemaker and microwave. The beds are comfortable, and linens are provided. The beach is just a short walk away, and features a creek which will delight the little ones. Glenn is situated between South Haven and Saugatuck, making it ideal for shopping excursions, wine tasting, brewery hopping, or for renting a boat or wave-runner. Great restaurants are within 10-15 minutes in 3 directions. This is a cottage for those who want to get away from it all, but want to be within reach of all the action. The sunsets alone are with the price of admission!
Check out our history: The Kerr family has been vacationing on Fabun Road since the early 1900's when my great grandmother, Henrietta, came from Chicago to spend summers here, playing organ for the local girl's camp. She subsequently bought the property next door to the camp. To get here every summer, she had to take a boat across the big Lake, land in South Haven, where she would get on a horse drawn hay wagon with her trunk full of her summer clothes, and once she got to the cottage, she stayed for the whole summer. Her house still stands at Fabun Road. My father spent summers here as a boy, and so did I. We didn't have a phone in the old days, or a TV, or even running water! We played Monopoly or Sorry, and card games, and built fires on the beach. When we kids would get bored, my mom would just send us out for a walk in the woods. It helped me learn how to enjoy my own company, and be creative. I think every child should spend summers on Fabun Road!
