Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: The Muggs live in East Lansing, MI and are fierce Spartan fans!

Why the Owner Chose Glen Lake:
We knew this was 'The Country's Most Beautiful Place' long before it got that moniker. The air is fresher, lakes crystal clear, and the quiet will bring a lasting peace.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Location is great! Something for everyone--beach time, hiking, biking, kayaking, wine touring, or just relaxing on our hammock. The cottage is simple but still has everything you need to be comfortable.
