Overview

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 Southwest Michigan

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.

Sweet place to call home for a weekend

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, thoughtfully decorated and the perfect place for us to stay with our dog. It was quiet, had adequate outdoor space for a drink or short dog walk. The attached restaurant was a great for breakfast both mornings.

West Michigan Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

What a charming, relaxing and wonderful stay at the West 'coast' of Michigan. The apartment is tastefully decorated, organized and clean. The bed is oh so comfortable. Shower is refreshing! The location in the small, and I mean small, and friendly town of Glen was a delightful experience! Loved having CJ's Cafe a few steps away for yummy breakfast and friendly waitstaff. We even got to enjoy the community BBQ with live music right across the street at the small park.

A short walk to the LAKE. A short drive to Saugatuck. A short drive to South Haven. Then returned to the quiet of this retreat. We LOVE IT!!

apartment in Glenn

  • 4 of 5

Nice small apartment attached to Café building. Parking lot was the front outdoor area so not a lot of privacy. Easy drive to beaches. Worked well for us booking a place late in the season. Thanks Frank and Kay.

Nice Stop Along the Way

  • 4 of 5

Basic, yet comfortable. Near the Lakeshore (the best part). Near the orchards (next best part; it being early August). Air conditioning was a life saver.
