Glass Club Lake uses it’s clubhouse for monthly meetings and numerous Shareholder events. Shareholders may also rent the clubhouse for personal family events such as family reunions, graduations or large family gatherings. Please refer to the Club By-Laws & Rules for more information.
Fishing at GCL
Fishing on the lake is reserved for Shareholders and their guests. We are a private lake, therefore a fishing license is not required. Fishermen must comply with the “No Wake Speed” during morning hours.
The Club has an exercise facility, which is located on the west side of Omaha Drive, just past the clubhouse. Equipment consists of treadmills, elliptical machines, free weights and other various items. Please use caution when using the equipment. Please note that there are no restrooms or running water inside of the facility. Contact any Board member for the code to enter the building.
The front gate automatically closes at 7:00 PM and reopens at 7:00 AM. If you did not obtain a remote control for the gate from the previous owner of your cabin, you may purchase one from the President, the Treasurer, or visit the Pay w/Paypal page. The cost is $20 each.
Please make sure that any guests you invite, are aware of the Club’s rules for boating, swimming and the use of Club facilities. Guests may only stay in your cabin, without your presence, for a total of 14 days – twice per calendar year. Members are directly responsible for their guests and their safety. For more information regarding guests, consult the Club’s By-Laws & Rules.

Your share of stock entitles you to membership in Glass Club Lake, Inc. The stock certificate is a valuable document, therefore please keep it in a safe place.

You will need to retrieve your stock from your mortgage provider, once your mortgage has been paid in full. If you ever choose to sell your cabin, you will need to return your original stock certificate to the President or Secretary.
Structural Changes & Renovations
Board approval is required before making changes to the exterior footprint of your cabin, dock, deck or outbuilding. Approvals are not necessary for cosmetic renovations that do not alter the exterior footprint of the structure.
