Year Purchased: 1995

About: I am a year around resident and love every minute here. My grandparents bought the property in the 1920's. My cousins and their families (about 30) vacation on Glen Lake every year for a week long family reunion.

Why Glen Lake:
I bought the cottage so that each of my children could have a home here when they retire.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Wonderful community of friends with many opportunities to give back. Active churches. Community activities. Always beautiful and engaging. Cottage has been a year round home.
