Great stay for my wife and I over the 4th. This was a good home base for us as we traveled through M-22 wine country, Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes areas. Like is mentioned in the ad, you don't get access to the pool and other amenities at the homestead. The homestead also makes it tough for people to get to their beach if you aren't staying right on the sand. Not a knock on this condo, but just be aware if you are staying at the homestead in general. But, we never even had a need to use the pool or the beach because we were spending so much time at the state park beaches or traveling through the area, so this was perfect for us. Plus on this condo is that it is right by the entrance of the homestead, so you can walk to the homestead shops and you won't spend 15 minutes driving around the homestead property trying to get out. Finally, the owners are very nice. Never met them, but my wife and I forgot one of our pillows there. The owners offered to ship it back to us.
