About the property

3 Bedrooms + Bonus room, 2 Baths (Sleeps 12)

Looking for a place to get away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life? The Glenn Cottage is the perfect to place for family members or a group of friends to get away from it all. Located in the quaint town of Glenn this rental is just 15 minutes to Saugatuck/Douglas and 20 minutes to South Haven. This well-appointed, contemporary vacation home is a great escape while still being just a short drive to shops, restaurants, galleries, parks and more in either of the neighboring beach towns. While it’s a bit tucked away from the downtown areas, the next best feature is that it’s just a short walk to deeded access Lake Michigan beachfront. The main level of this rental home offers an open concept kitchen/living/dining space with full bath as well as a large screened in porch with 8-person hot tub. The two lower levels feature three bedrooms; one with king bed, one with queen bed and one with two twin beds. You’ll also find a second full bath, a bonus room with a futon bed, and an over-sized family room with an additional futon bed, television & game table. This rental is the perfect spot for friends and/or family to make amazing vacation memories!

Managers Beach Notes: The Community Beach access is a solid wood structure with roughly 50 steps to the designated beach area. Unfortunately mother nature has controlled the amount of sandy beach in past seasons due to Lake Michigan water levels.

We would love to promise pristine sandy beach but sadly we cant predict until the Lake Ice has thawed.

Will definitely stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the South Haven/Saugatuck area every summer for years and this was the nicest rental house we have ever stayed in. It was very clean all around including the bedding and blankets (which is sometimes dusty and old in rental properties). The house itself is very nice and feels more like you're borrowing someone's home than renting a property. There is a large screened in porch with a hot tub, but we did not use it. The house is a sort of quad-level so it allowed everyone to spread out and have their own space. My only recommendation for improvement was to stock a few extra supplies, such as hand soap and toilet paper which ran low, put liners in the garbage cans, and supply some kitchen towels. Those tiny things would have taken it from an A to an A+. The house is located very near the little Glenn general store which had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again and again!!!

Worked well for our family

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Glenn Retreat July 15 through 22. We were excited to have a place available that would accommodate our family in the middle of July. We loved the fact that it was close enough to Lake Michigan that we could walk to the beach. We could not use the dedicated beach when the lake was rough but there were a couple other beaches within a few miles that we could bike or drive to. We noticed the same issues that were brought up in earlier reviews - the lack of central air & the unsafe condition of a couple of the dining room chairs. Also, it would have been a little more comfortable if the bedroom area in the basement had a real bed instead of a futon and it would have been nice to have a second TV in the basement. But overall we enjoyed our stay & would recommend the property to anyone looking for a quiet & spacious home for a family vacation.

Would not stay here again.

  • 1 of 5

I am not a big complainer but we were disappointed with the Glenn Retreat. The yard was not mowed so it was not enjoyable to use for all of the yard games we brought. There is no central air, just window air conditioners and 2 of the 3 were noisy and not working properly. The house was full of bugs, especially spiders. In the room with 2 beds there were dead bugs on top of the covers and under the covers. The water had rust in it and when we washed our white clothes it turned them all brown. The water also had a strong rust smell to it. There was one tv and only got local channels. There was a DVD player but it was not hooked up so the kids could not watch movies. The hot tub appeared dirty which I think was due to the rust in the water. We liked the location and the kitchen was well stocked. Overall for what we paid to stay here, it was definitely not worth it.

The house was very spacious and clean and the location is great!

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the house and the location with the ability to drive a short distance to get to South Haven, Sagatuck or Holland. No toaster, but the oven works on a broil setting as a fix - otherwise the appliances were great! The listing stated air conditioning, which isn't central air but window units in the bedrooms. Not a huge deal as the area is very wooded and there is often a breeze. The lower level also stays very cool. A couple of the dining area chairs were very rickety but there was a second table in the lower level with more sturdy chairs. It does sleep 12 but that includes sleeping 3 in each of the king size beds; again not a big deal as there is a lot of space to spread out and couches can be used for kids. Walk to the beach isn't too far once you find the access but requires some stair climbing - a few of which are a little sketchy but watching the sunset is beautiful and worth it. It's a quiet area and the house is very nice and roomy - love the layout of the house and the ability for people to have space when they need it. Overall, it's a great place for large families or a few groups of friends with many things to do in close proximity with the added bonus of sitting out in the 4 season room at any hour and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature!
