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!

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.

apartment in Glenn

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.

The house was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and welcoming from the minute we arrived. All the little essentials that we needed were supplied. The restaurant next door had really good food. The only negative I have is the beach. It is way to rocky to take kids there. You definitely need some kind of water shoes. We spent most of our time 20 minutes south in South Haven.

Great Location!

  • 3 of 5

We loved our stay at this property in Glenn but would have to recommend and upgrade to the mattresses. Very uncomfortable beds but with this small change, we would definitely stay again. The apartment was in a great location with easy access to South Haven, Saugatuck, Douglass and Glenn. We were able visit all 3 places and our stay was only 2 1/2 days long. We enjoyed access to the diner and the convenience store located right around the corner from the apartment. Everyone was very friendly and offered lots of advice on where to go and what to see. My kids had fun at the playground and once we found the tiny private beach right down the road, we were able to enjoy a stunning sunset at the lake!
