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.

Lovely Cottage! Quiet and peaceful.

If you are looking for an "off the beaten path" wonderful vintage Michigan summer cottage, this is the place to go. The walk down to the beach is on a quiet dirt road and the beach is lovely. We like the spaciousness of the cottage, the sleeping porch and sound of the lake. We still can't get over how quiet and peaceful it was in the cottage. We also loved how easy it was to get to restaurants and shopping. We will be back!

The White House has a lot of Charm!

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.

Our favorite summer vacation!

This was our 5th year to stay at the White House and we always enjoy it! The cottage is charming, comfortable, and works great for families -- lots of space, and a terrific yard for outdoor games like croquet and volleyball after a day at the beach.
The beach is only a short walk, and never crowded. One of our favorite things about staying at the White House is the view of the lake and the sounds of the waves. We love the wrap around screened in porch!
When you want a day in town, Saugatuck and Douglas are just a short drive. We also love the little town of Glen, and we were fortunate to happen upon the fireman's pancake breakfast one year!! If we miss that, the local Glen diner is a great choice too. We also do a fair amount of cooking and grilling and the kitchen is nicely equipped for what we need.
The cottage owner is very attentive and always available if we ever need anything. We look forward to going back again this summer, as the White House has really become our July "home away!".

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.
