CHIC CONDO TUCKED IN WOODED DUNES OF LAKE MI

Glen Arbor Condo Rental Photos and Description

1BR/1BA Condo, sleeps 4

Everything 'up north' should be - Our condo is private, clean, comfortable, and conveniently located on the property of the Homestead Resort. This means you are just minutes from the beach, groomed hiking and ski trails, and the ski village. Just down the road is Glen Arbor, Glen Lakes and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Glen Arbor offers resort shopping and a choice of delightful restaurants. Spend an afternoon boating crystal clear Glen Lake or kayaking the Crystal River. A trip up north wouldn't be complete without the challenge of climbing the Sleeping Bear Dunes or a visit to 'fishtown,' Leland. The new Heritage trail is perfect for a bike ride. From our villa you are just a scenic drive to all the other Leelanau Peninsula treasures- orchards, vineyards, golf courses, horse trails, historic sites and casinos.

Come, Be Our Guests. Tucked in the northwoods, renters comment on how private, clean, and comfortable villa is. Easy 3-step entry welcomes you to relax in the great north woods. Start the morning with the birds and a cup of coffee on our wooden deck. After a walk through the woods, a day at the beach, a game of golf, or a drive around the peninsula visiting wineries, return to our air conditioned villa and relax in our jacuzzi tub. Visiting in the cooler months? Settle down to a fire in the fireplace and a good movie on the DVD player. Ready for bed, tuck yourself in to comfort in our king-size sleigh bed and dream about returning.

Located between the reception center and the ski village of the Homestead Resort, our villa is a short walk to Lake Michigan, the entrance to the Bay View trail, Cavanaugh's deli and Nonnie's restaurant.

Glen Arbor: Just 40 minutes east of Traverse City is the quaint town of Glen Arbor. Nestled on the shores of Lake Michigan, it's a destination spot in any season. Summer attracts Glen Lake & Lake Michigan boaters, sailors, hikers, dune climbers, cyclists and sun worshipers. The restaurants are open late luring you in with their fare. Some even have live nightly entertainment. The shop doors are open enticing you to buy everything from Cherry wine to carved cherry wood tables. Plan accordingly and you can catch an art, polka, or jazz festival. Fall brings a quietness to the town. It's a perfect time to take a color tour through the scenic hills, catch a game of golf, or walk through any number of groomed trails. Perhaps you'll spot a deer, porcupine, red fox, or raccoon. We have. Winter fun begins on the down-hill slopes or cross-country trails. When spring arrives, everyone celebrates by hunting Morrell mushrooms and spotting Trillium as they poke through the winter leaves. Come, be our guests.

Area Attractions: Come, discover all of the Leelanau Peninsula treasures with us. Be awed by the Sleeping Bear Dunes or Lake Michigan or marvel at the beauty of a wildflower growing along one of the many groomed hiking trails. Tucked throughout the peninsula are vineyards, wineries, golf courses, lakes and scenic lookouts. For the nostalgic is Leland, a turn-of-the century fish town still practicing its trade but expanded to welcome inquisitive visitors. Empire too boasts a maritime museum depicting the wrath and splendor of Lake Michigan travel. Why you can even find a home-made cheese shop and family drive-in theater. For the modern sophisticate is Traverse City, just east on M-72. North of TC is the casino at Peshawbeston. To the south is fine arts school at Interlochen which hosts local and international artists throughout the year. No matter where you go in the area, there is something to do and something to see. So come, be our guest and experience all that 'Up North' was meant to be.

Cozy Condo in the Woods of the Homestead

  • 5 of 5
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.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We found the 'Up North' condo to be exactly as the pictures and text describe. It was very clean. The bed was comfortable, the hot tub was appreciated and the washer & dryer made our stay so much nicer. We used the kitchen to cook our breakfast and pack lunches. The small fridge was adequate for our needs. The living room was confortable and well decorated, although we spent most of our time on the beach or hiking. We visited 3 beaches- Empire Beach, Good Harbor Beach & Elberta Beach. They were all so beautiful!! Elberta Beach was a little more secluded. Empire Beach had a convenient parking/unloading plan. We toured two lighthouses in the area- The Grand Traverse & Point Betsie. We hiked to Empire Bluff, Pyramid Point and also hiked a portion of the new Heritage Trail. We took in Inspiration Point, visited a couple of wineries, and truly enjoyed the food at the many places we dined. Especially notable were Art's, Boone Docks- with nightly live music on the outdoor eating deck-, The Western Avenue Bar and Grill and The Cove in Leland. Leland was a lot of fun. They had some great shops and The Cove sits right on the river. The view of the river was great from the deck below. We started our week with the Manitou Misic Festival at the base of The Sleeping Bear Dunes and ended up with an interview and our picture in a local paper! Our grand finale also took place at the Sleeping Bear Dunes with the Dune Climb at the end of our week. We were surprised to find that once we got to the top of the dune, there was another 1.2 miles to Lake Michigan. We walked most of the way then found a ridge where we viewed an incredible sunset over Lake Michigan. Looking east we had a remarkable view of Glen Lake. The Homestead Resort had some impressive landscaping, with boardwalks, streams, flowers scattered throughout. We enjoyed a bottle of wine at Nonna's on a perfect summer evening. This was truly one of the best vacations we've taken. The condo was just what we werre looking for and we are looking forward to visiting again! Thanks Diedra!

Cozy, quiet, great location!

  • 5 of 5
We had a very lovely stay in this cute condo. The location is perfect, close to the village. Easy lower level park-at-the-front door access. Loved the fireplace with ample wood supply just outside the door. Too cold for the patio on this trip but nice woodsy view. Other reviews about the nice king size bed are spot on, very comfy. Deidre is very easy to work with and extremely responsive. Great experience!

Fall Getaway :)

  • 5 of 5
Need a place to escape with comfort, this is it. We found the unit (ideal for two) to be extremely comfortable, with all the comforts of home. It was especially nice to have a washer/dryer on site. We came home with no dirty clothes. Location was ideal for trails, wildlife, kayaking, shopping, casinos, etc. Nice to be away from traffic and crowds. I would have liked to have been closer to Lake Michigan but it was easily accessible, long walk-short drive. We would rent this unit again and that is the best rating the owners could receive.

Lovely weekend

  • 5 of 5
The condo was exactly as described and as pictured. The only negative, and I hesitate to mention, just because most people would not care, is that there is no internet. This was a minor problem for us as we could not get cell phone reception at all times. It was very clean with attention to detail and beautiful views. We loved walking the beach and into town.

loved our stay

  • 4 of 5
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Galardi's villa at THE HOMESTEAD. Very comfortable king size bed. View was AWESOME. Condo was spotless. Had breakfast on porch-patio, amongst the forest of trees, every morning. What a wonderful way to start the day.

Just east of Traverse Ctiy is the quaint town of Glen Arbor, home of the Homestead Resort. Tucked in the north wood shores of Lake Michigan, it is a perfect get-away destination in any season. Summer fun begins on the shores of Lake Michigan and extends through miles of groomed hiking trails woven throughout the peninsula. The rolling hills and dunes attract bikers and dune climbers from around the country. There is also boating, sailing, fishing, canoeing, and 'rump bumping.' The hills are gorgeous in the fall and salmon fishing exhilarating. Cozy up to the fireplace and plug in a DVD this winter after your fun on the slopes or trails. Then look forward to coming back in the spring to hunt Morell mushrooms and spot the Trillium poking through the winter leaves. Come, stay with us and enjoy all that 'up north' was meant to be.

If you are familiar with the Homestead resort, our villa is a South Village unit located between the reception center and the ski village.
