About jill gray

Welcome to our home away from home! Our family built our getaway seven years ago in Glenn because it's a quiet community close to all amenities. And the beach is not only beautiful, but it is so close! Our teens' activities have precluded us from spending as much time as we would like here, so we would like to share our home with you and your family!

What makes this cottage unique

Glenn is the perfect location...nestled between South Haven and Saugatuck and close to Holland and Grand Rapids. Enjoy the beautiful beaches, farmers markets, fresh fruit stands, wineries and golf courses. The Fall offers beautiful colors and the winter is cozy and majestic (and we are near tobogganing, tubing and ski hills).

Great spot in Glenn, Michigan

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property two summers in a row. It is a wonderful get-away location. Quiet area yet close enough to drive to Saugatuck, Douglas, or South Haven for a little more action. The house is well equipped, very clean, and has a/c which is a must when you just happen to be vacationing on one of the hottest weeks of the year. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are all updated and modern (not like the rusty,old tin showers I remember from my childhood days staying in cottages in Glenn). Evenings on the front porch or the back screened porch were the best. We stayed here with my grown children and everyone had a wonderful time antiquing, kayaaking, and just relaxing. We will be back! Love the owner who is so accommodating and caring. Great property!

Quiet location, perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My search always begins with air conditioning, screened porch, no smoking, and this checked all the boxes. Beyond those essentials: Loved being near the little beach (no treacherous stairs, gentle hill) for great sunsets, yet close enough to Oval for the big beach experience. Farm stands and small grocery nearby. Nicely equipped! Nice grill, new washer/dryer, comfortable beds/sheets, fantastic towels, enough paper products, hair dryer, books/games, vacuum cleaner, and fantastic bathrooms. And I loved the screened porch. Tasteful decor, yet practical for family use---simple, nothing too fussy. Have rented in the area for 20 years and this is among our favorites. (Almost hate to give away the secret, but they deserve the stellar review!) We will be back.

Nice Lake Michigan house for vacation

  • 4 of 5

This house is lovely and clean. The space is beautiful with lots of hardwood. You can walk to a mostly private beach. The front yard is good for relaxing and the house has a great wrap around porch. Also, if something is not working there are people nearby to help. The landlord, Jill, was so friendly and attentive. My family is used to a more populated beach and city so this house was a little too quiet for my teenage girls. We enjoyed our quiet time together. Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful house.

Beautifully appointed cottage by Lake MI

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 was looking for a property to rent close to the Saugatuck/Douglas area. We were delighted by this cottage! The owners have taken great care to create a home away from home with a well appointed kitchen, comfortable furnishings, nice linens and all of the amenities of home. The cottage was spotless upon our arrival and a professional cleaning service provides the end of stay care. The cottage is a short walk from Lake MI and a small, but comfortable beach that usually hosts a few families. The "descent" to the beach is a bit tricky as it is really a ravine and there are no steps, but this point is a county issue and not one that the owner's can control. The beautiful water is worth the small price of the lack of steps. There are several small and interesting communities within a 15 minute drive (Saugatuck, Douglas and South Haven) as well as several moderately sized cities within 30-45 minutes (Grand Haven, Holland and Grand Rapids). Large multi-purpose stores (WalMart, Meijer and Menards) are 15 minutes away and a useful general store is minutes up the road. There is also a delicious farm stand a short drive away for daily produce. Overall, we found this property to be a wonderful place to rent and we would return.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your time in our cottage and that you loved the area as much as we do! The harsh winter definitely affected the size and condition of our beach this year....hopefully Mother Nature will be kinder this winter and return some beach footage! We'd love to host your wonderful family again.

Great for families. Clean and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Still here..... But wanted to review. Perfect place for getting away from it all but still close enough to everything. 10 minutes from South Haven and 10 minutes from Saugatuck. On a quiet road, three houses from Lake Michigan, clean, cute, "Nantucket" decor home, and worth the trip. Great front porch and relaxing screened back porch to sit and have morning coffee or a glass of wine. Our girls loved the front yard for kicking the soccer ball around. Dirt path at end of street leads to the beach. A little rocky at waters edge, but sandy after that. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. We brought our smoothie maker/blender and soon realized it was broken :(. Well equipped kitchen... Blender and all! Thanks!

Enjoy the quiet neighborhood of Glenn, MI...ideally situated between Saugatuck and South Haven (15 minutes to each).

The beautiful shore of Lake Michigan is only 500 feet from our house ...an easy stroll down a dirt road to a sloping walkway (no stairs!) to 1600 feet of public beach.

With sleeping accommodations for up to eight people, our house is five years old with air conditioning, an open floor plan, wi-fi, cable and an outdoor shower.

The first floor includes a living room, spacious kitchen, kitchen table with seating for 10, island and table, bathroom with shower and a separate laundry room. Also off the kitchen is a large screened in porch which is a favorite spot for listening to the waves hitting the beach.

The second level contains a master bedroom (with king bed), a loft with a day bed that expands to a king size bed, a bedroom with twin size bunk beds, second bedroom with a twin bed and trundle (and a sliding door between bedrooms) and a bathroom with a double sink in one room, and full shower and commode in the other.

A second floor walk out deck with table and chairs is accessed from the loft and master bedroom and is the perfect spot for star gazing.
