Guestbook comments from the owner

(Handwritten note to owner, printed with permission)

"We really enjoyed our stay this year... some golfed, some layed on the beach and others shopped all day. The artists among us found wonderful scenes for watercolor! A good time was had by all! I appreciate your letting us rent your wonderful cottage. We treat it as if it were our own. Looking forward to next year." Thank you - Sharon

Perfect Family Get-Together!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage in the Glenn was the perfect location for our family get-together! There was plenty of room for all 10 of us -- 9 adults and 1 child. House was clean, comfortable and well-stocked. Beach was gorgeous! And just a short walk from the property. We also made use of the numerous decks, volleyball court and fire pit (S'mores - yum!). When the weather didn't cooperate for the beach, there was South Haven, Douglas, and Saugatuck to visit, all a short 10-minute drive away. Plenty of shopping, antiquing, blueberry picking, wine tasting, and dining options nearby as well. All in all...a wonderful place for a large group or family to stay!

Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage in the Glenn was a perfect setting for our multi-family gathering - grandparents, siblings, and little cousins - and we all had space for socializing, sleeping, and personal space. The common areas are spacious with plenty of cozy chairs and nooks for relaxing, and then the bedrooms are spread out on opposite ends of the house and separate levels. Just a quick walk to the beach, lots of sand toys for the kids, and the grounds were lovely with plenty of shade from the heat of the day, and a fire pit to sit around in the evening with a glass of wine while making smores! We had a wonderful time.

Cottage in the Glenn

  • 4 of 5

The space was perfect for our family of 15. The house is well equipped with all the basics and even beach toys and umbrellas for a fun time.

We would recommend it for others.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 15 had a terrific time, and the fit was perfect! Usually with so many beds the living and dining room suffer in size, and that is not the case with this house. We all had dining space, and sitting space in the gathering room. The area is beautiful, the shopping was plentiful, and Michigan's Adventure was only an hour away, and made for a great day. It's a very quiet location, and the beach was within walking distance, or just a short drive. We didn't realize there would be so much to do. We are looking forward to a return trip.

We have stayed in Cottage in the Glenn and have loved it. Living in Nebraska we were looking to enjoy a vacation to an area we could relax yet be close to activities. We found both here! Without question, this location provides a peaceful roomy atmosphere where a family can go and enjoy. We look forward to our return in August this year!
