Unlike the Lake Shore House, the inn has no recognizable style. The two-story, wood-frame building, set slightly back from the road, became the anchor for the Glenbrook Inn and Ranch Resort. When built, the structure incorporated an old general merchandise store erected in 1877. Its long side faces the lake to take advantage of the view. A four-story, hiproofed tower stands at the southwest corner. The success of the resort soon after its erection necessitated the addition of several bays at the inn's north end. Changes made during the 1970s include the enlargement of some of the second-story window openings, new chimneys, and the enclosure of the full-length front porch.
