We enjoyed a nice stay in a bucholic setting.
Beautiful Beach House
We loved our stay at the Country Manor of Glenn! It's a large beach house steps from the beach. It has plenty of yard space to grill, play games, etc. There is a basketball court on the premise. And, the view before you take the stairs to the beach is splendid. I will definitely stay here again!
We had a great time at Country Manor. The home was very clean and spacious--perfect for our family of ten. The beach was perfect--very private and clean. The tennis court was an added bonus. We played on that everyday too. There is a family member who lives on the property. She is very kind and welcoming. The home sits on a pretty wooded setting, with a short walk through the woods to the beach. The sunsets are beautiful over Lake Michigan!
Glenn is a quaint 4 corner town called 'The Pancake Town'. On Dec 7 1937 a heavy snowstorm hit Glenn with snow measuring 14 -30 inches deep in many places After 48 hours when the wind finally subsided the local people opened their doors and ventured out into a winter wonderland with drifts as high as ten feet in many places.
This was many years before the interstate highway was constructed. U.S. 31 (Blue Star Highway) was, at that time, the only main highway on this side of the state and it passed right through Glenn. In the wake of the storm 100 cars and 60 trucks were stalled in the snow. Over 200 motorist found themselves marooned in Glenn.
Glenn, always known for its hospitable nature and community spirit did not hesitate in opening up homes and businesses to accomodate the stranded motorists. 'Pancakes, without sausage' became the daily special for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We still have the 'Pancake Breakfast' in Glenn to this day on special dates.
