About the property

Remodelled apartment in a quiet area yet only minutes from beach or resorts.

Cozy 1 bedroom apartment in the heart of Glenn. Ideal place to come and relax away from the hustle and bustle yet only 10 miles from the busy resort areas of South Haven and Saugatuck. Near convenience store/deli, shops, small church, wineries with great tasting rooms and tours, orchards for U Pick, restaurants, antiquing galore Park/ playground very close for the kids to play in a true country setting. Newly decorated has carpeted large living room with queen size pull out sofa. Custom made kitchen cabinets in a new U shaped kitchen with a large snack bar and bar stools. Spacious carpeted bedroom with queen size bed as well as a trundle bed which pulls out into 2 separate twin size beds. 2 large closets, big screen TV connected to satellite. Outdoor seating and grill for that family BBQ. Your stay includes all linen, kitchen fully equipped with dishes/pots and pans, electric mixer, coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave above range and silverware. There is one bath with a large shower. Cozy little hamlet of Glenn, great for the peace and quiet of a small town and only 10 minutes from Saugatuck, Fennville or South Haven. Short walk to 1400 FT of Lake Michigan beach, great for watching our beautiful sunsets, rock collecting, long walks or just plain swimming, beach shoes advised as this area of beach is rocky.. Also a wonderful public beach (West Side County Park) is only 3-1/2 miles north of us as well as a small public beach (Pier Cove) approx. 4 miles north of us. Lots of beaches to choose from along with the South Haven beaches and the Saugatuck beaches. Close to the Allegan State Game Area where there are long hiking trails through beautiful woods. Also, Kal Haven bike trail only minutes away which is well groomed..The large Wau-Ke-Na Nature Conservancy is 1/4 mile north of us and has ponds for wild life along with wildlife/bird watching/flowering plants paths. Small country school close by with a large playground for the kids to run off some of that energy.

About The Owner

My husband grew up right here in Glenn, travelled to Portland Oregon for 2 years, returning to Glenn and making this our home since 1967! He went to school in the country school house as did his mother and his grandparents so his roots here are very deep. I came from Lincoln, Illinois and moved to Michigan when my father took a teaching job in Holland. We have raised our 3 sons here and also have a business here.

Why The Owner chose South Haven

This cozy apartment is an ideal place for the family or couple who are tired of the hustle and bustle of city life and want a place to retreat to. We offer a quiet country setting and a very comfortable place to rest, relax and rejuvenate your spirits. The resort areas of South Haven and Saugatuck are only 10 miles away so you don"t have to go into complete withdrawal but have the quiet you deserve whenever you want it. Also, great area to tune yourself into nature with the many attractions listed for hiking, bird watching, biking or cross country skiing. Lake Michigan is only 3/4 mile away with well over 1,000 feet of beach! Better bring your beach shoes though as the beach along this area is very rocky..Lots of septarian or Lightning stones..

What makes this apartment unique

Peace and quiet of a true country setting yet only minutes away from great resort areas. We have quaint antique shops, gift shops, hardware store, art galleries. deli/convenience store, a salon/spa and farm market. Across the street from a lovely park with picnic tables under a large gazebo for all to use. Also, playground for the kids just across the street.

It is a very nice, clean place. The apartment had everything you would need for your stay. Our only issue was the toilet needed to be flushed more than once sometimes. CJ's next door was great for breakfast and the convenience store being right there was perfect. The location between South Haven and Saugatuck was perfect. Thank you

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our family of five! It's clean, attached to a little cafe, and the playground across the street was perfect for our little ones. Also, when I forgot something there, the owners were quick to communicate with me. We would definitely stay here again!
