About Glenn Meadow

A little bit about Glenn Meadow

In 2013 I converted the complete lower level of my home into a guest area. My children had flown the nest and because I love to entertain and gather around tables of lovingly made meals, having a bed and breakfast had been a dream of mine for many years.

The space I created has a bedroom and an attached sitting area with the ability to sleep two more. There is a game/coffee room, comfortable family area and separate bathroom. This space has served our guests well. We’ve had families, couples, individuals, from various locales enjoy the space and delicious meals. All have become new friends.

We also welcome long term guests who, in the past, have stayed with us for months at a time.

Very quickly the requests to stay quickly out-paced our capacity. So we decided to create more space to share.

Your Hosts, Tracey & Mark

A note from Tracey

Reflecting on my life, I see clearly a common thread woven throughout all that I’ve done – a deep passion for creating safe spaces.

While a student at Arizona State University studying Behavioral Psychology, I became involved in a project to help the Phoenix Police Department develop a new program that created Family Stress Teams- groups of professionals who would help the police provide victims of crime with the immediate, practical, psychological assistance they so needed.

After moving with my young family to South Haven, Michigan in 1987, I again began working with local law enforcement and helped establish the Van Buren County Victim Advocacy Program. It was the first of its kind in this area. As my work with our community’s most vulnerable populations continued, I served on the founding Board of Directors for the Domestic Violence Coalition in Van Buren County and from there, I became actively involved in another issue dear to my heart: children in the foster care system.

For four years, my family and I agreed to turn our home into a short-term emergency foster care facility where groups of siblings from challenging circumstances and unsafe homes could be cared for until appropriate placement was available and would allow them to remain together.

Over a dozen years ago, my career took a shift into marketing and business development for an environmental onsite-testing laboratory. Yet, the work to create safe environmental spaces wasn’t that far removed from those I have been carefully building for people.

It comes as no surprise that I find myself treasuring this new adventure— sharing my home and this stunning landscape with individuals and families alike, needing the simplicity of relaxation and retreat.

I hope you enjoy the comforts of this space while you spend lazy days at the beach or engaged in some terrific exploration. It is our great privilege to get to know each person who graces our doorway.
