|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
The White House offers a cozy screen porch, views of Lake Michigan, a quiet, country setting, and access to a scenic but little known public beach. We are located with 15 minutes of both South Haven to the south, and Saugatuck to the north. Inbetween, there are winery tours, antiquing, berry picking, beachcombing, restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream parlors, and of course, Kilwins famous fudge. Horseback riding is available locally, as well as golf, boat rentals, and movie theaters. This charming, clean older cottage house is equipped with modern conveniences such as cable, internet, washer & dryer, microwave, coffee maker, making your stay carefree as you enjoy the privacy of this gentle 'Pancake Town' of Glenn.
I grew up coming to the lake every summer, to my great-grandmother's cottage, which is just a short walk down the road from the White House. I fell in love with the area and bought the cottages in 1999, from my parents who had purchased the cluster of cottages in the 1970's.
Patricia Kerr purchased this cottage in 1999
My mom had re-married and inherited 3 more children. She wanted to have room for the whole blended family to enjoy summers together at the lake, so she and my step-dad began to fix them up and rent them out in the mid 70's
Location location location! There isn't a better beach than the Glenn Beach anywhere in the world, and the peaceful quality of life is refreshing. Yet, you're still only 15 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of 2 charming towns-- Saugatuck to the north, and South Haven to the south. The kids will love the swing set, and the teens may want to wander up to the Glenn school (the oldest continuously operating one-room schoolhouse in Michigan) for a game of basketball. In addition, the old hardware store, charming Glenn Restaurant and well stocked convenience store make Glenn feel like stepping back in time.
We really enjoyed staying at the White House, the moment you walk through the door, it feels so welcoming! The wrap-around porch was a wonderful aspect to the house. It provided lots of room for the kids to play games, for reading or whatever. The trip to the beach was a short distance, so we didn't mind. For the price, it's a great deal. Overall we had an awesome vacation at the White House.
The White House is a vintage cottage (cerca 1920's) that has many of the modern conveniences--cable, internet, washer and dryer, etc. without losing the feel of charm of days gone by. Situated on a country road overlooking Lake Michigan, it's a perfect place to watch the sunset while having a cool glass of chardonnay from the local Fenn Valley winery. The screened porch offers cozy nooks for quiet reading, or group areas for a friendly game of cards or monopoly. Located in the quaint 'Pancake Town' of Glenn, it is a short 15 minute drive to either Saugatuck --to the north--or South Haven--to the south, so you're close enough to the great restuarants, antique shopping, ice cream jaunts, berry picking, golfing, and any number of other summer delights.
