About Denny Kennedy
We are both in the film industry which brought us to beautiful state of California. I came from Canada 12 years ago and Stuebe from Chicago, 30 years ago. Given our lifestyles, we both ended up living in Venice which we love. We love getting on our bikes and cycling down to the beach/boardwalk or Abbot Kinney Boulevard where you are bound to run into someone you know. That is the beauty of Venice. When we are not working or looking after Glencoe Retreat, we love to hook up our Holiday House to our 64 Chevy and travel up the coast to enjoy the California coastline.
Denny Kennedy purchased this House in 2001
Why Denny Kennedy chose Venice
We love the fact that the property is just far enough away from the beach where you will have quiet, serene nights without the noise of beach traffic. You will not have to fight to find parking and you can get on a bike to be at the beach in 10-15 minutes.
What makes this House unique
The owners have an outdoor pizza oven that they are sure to start up when you stay! And the pizza is divine! There is also a charging station on the property for electric car users.

My home away from home
I have just completed my third extended stay at Glencoe and wish I never had to leave, never had to return to my real home. This is my home away from home. Comfortable. Familiar. Generous. Welcoming. Private. Energetically speaking, every single time I have stayed at the retreat, I have booked a new and wonderful job - received the phone call right there on the futon couch. If you want to change your life for the better, this is the place.
Glencoe Retreat is a charming little oasis tucked away in the middle of Venice. The location is the perfect place from which to launch. It is comfortable and serene-the perfect place to return home to after a busy day in the hustle and bustle of LA. The courtyard area is a dream. I wish only that I had had more time to sit and enjoy it. Denny is the consummate hostess. I highly recommend a stay here and I will definitely return.
Glencoe Retreat is the quintessential "home away from home" and Denny and Steube were perfect hosts. The cottage is immaculate (this is key for me!) and incredibly well stocked. The private courtyard provided a peaceful retreat when we needed to catch a breath (too bad the weather wasn't warmer to try the outdoor bathtub!), Next visit we will make time to use the bikes and beach gear. Hope that time will come soon and that Glencoe retreat will be available for us. Thank you again, hope to see you soon! Fran & Lyle
A fantastic experience- again !
Denny & Stuebe are the ultimate hosts, they are the most generous and considerate people you will ever encounter. My family and I have been to Glencoe Retreat four times now and nothing changes - the experience just keeps getting better!
Glencoe retreat is always amazing. Denny and Stubby are welcoming and warm and the space is bright and cozy. Love the place
Best place to stay in Venice Beach
Whenever we come to Venus Beach we always stay at Glencoe Retreat. It’s close proximity to restaurants, shops, bars and the beach make it the perfect home away from home. The hosts are very friendly and hospitable, even taking us for a tour of Venice Beach and Santa Monica in their vintage convertible. The cottage is clean and very well appointed. We try to visit LA every couple of years and Glencoe Retreat is our preferred accommodation.
