Historic Cottages of Glen Lake offers a rare glimpse into the interiors of 60 historic Glen Lake summer cottages and the nostalgia enveloping them. The stories of the families that built on Glen Lake are recounted: where they came from, how they got here, where they stayed. They fell in love with the Glen Lake and the Dunes and sent down deep roots by building these now-historical family retreats. Three hundred and fifty photographs honor cottage lore and memories and take us on a walk back in time. Each cottage’s importance in the lives of its owners and to the community is celebrated, revealing the special sense of place and state of mind that only a lake cottage can evoke. In this revised Second Edition, six new cottages have been added, together with updated text.
