          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1994

          About the owner: Shores Club is my home six months a year. My family and I love it and sincerely hope you enjoy your summer vacation here. Since retiring from a career in Chicago, I have operated an RV resort property management business in Michigan and Florida. That business takes me away from the house in the summer time which is why it is available for rent. Most or our renters over the past 10 years have been family reunions for grandparents, their adult children and their grand children. The house is perfect for these kinds of family gatherings.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The house has an interesting history so we have collected some informationstories from several of the families who occupied it at various points in time. As we understand it, the house was constructed in the 1870s for a fruit farmer and was located on the site of the Glenn Shores Golf Course. The building that currently serves as the club house for the golf course was originally the barn for this house. In the late 1920’s Glenn Shores was developed as a resort community and the house was moved to its current site by rolling it on logs and pulling it with mules. The developer intended to use the house as a beach club for the Glenn Shores development and poured the foundations behind the house to add a large dining room. When the developer went bankrupt in 1927, the house began to be used as a summer cottage. It was winterized and remodeled by us. Pages from the 1920’s brochure are framed and hung around the stairs and landing along with a map and renderings of the house.
