Renting now for Spring, and Fall! Last full week of JUNE, JULY and AUGUST RENTALS BY THE WEEK (SAT/SAT) ONLY. We've upgraded to a bottom freezer fridge, flat cooktop/oven, ultra quiet dishwasher and 3 flatscreen TV'S!
The beach home you've dreamed about is right here. Come enjoy the 'most beautiful place in America'! Walk 150 STEPS right onto the sugar sand, private beach from the back porch of this 1100 sq. ft. condo. It is tastefully decorated with 2 comfortable sized bedrooms and 2 baths situated right on SLEEPING BEAR BAY AT THE HOMESTEAD.
Being on the GROUND LEVEL offers alot more comfort and ease. Watch your young children play right outside the back porch. Come and go to the beach much more easily from the back porch. The beach will be much more inviting if getting there isn't such a chore.
The beach area at SOUTH BEACH is premium. Unlike some other areas, it is wide and the sand is smooth. It is private so you will feel you have the place to yourself!
Take in THE VIEW through 25 ft wall of windows in the common area overlooking Sleeping Bear Bay and South Manitou Island. This is one of the best views because there are few trees to block it. Or enjoy the Lake Michigan breezes on the porch while you watch the amazing sunsets. Make a cozy fire in the fireplace and roast marshmallows. Or visit Leelanau Observatory, a 5 min walk up the beach, to gaze at the stars.
The enclosed master bedroom boasts a KING SIZED BED and an en-suite OVERSIZED MASTER BATHROOM with jacuzzi/shower tub. You won't be tripping over each other. In addition, there is a large dresser and two mirrored closets. A bay window of 3 separate windows gives lots of light.
The other bedroom has TWO TWIN BEDS, a mirrored closet, a dresser, a desk and a large window. All rooms contain a high powered ceiling fan, a Tv with cable and wi-fi. Strong breezes off the lake keep you cool on warmer days. The 2ND SEPARATE 3/4 BATHROOM contains a sink, toilet and shower.
If you're cooking don't worry. You wont be left out. The kitchen is 'COOK AND LOOK'', which means you will be able to enjoy the fantastic view too. This is one of our favorite aspects of the condo. The full kitchen is stocked with any basic utensil or appliance you need, including an stainless steel upgraded fridge with bottom freezer, ultra quiet stainless dishwasher, ice maker, blender and baking pans. A grocery store, Anderson's, in town is minutes away. If you're not into cooking there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance or a short car ride to the quaint town of Glen Arbor. Our favorite restaurant is La Becasse in Burdickville. French food to die for!
Just to be clear, there is no grill at the condo itself. There are grills in the park about a 1/4 mile away. There is no grill at the condo.
The main living room has a QUEEN PULL-OUT COUCH, a love seat and a cozy chair that you will find difficult to leave. For your entertainment there is a cabled tv, stereo, cd player, wi-fi, wood burning fireplace and a 2 MIRRORED WALLS that will reflect the light and great view.
The town of GLEN ARBOR is the Mayberry of Michigan. Lots of shop owners are willing to get to know you. There are restaurants to suit any taste and budget. The kids can play in the park and mom can shop to her heart's content. Dad can hang out at Art's Tavern to watch the game. When you're all done stop at The Cherry Republic for a BoomChukkaLukka and post your pic on their wall!
After you've feasted enjoy the many trails on the SLEEPING BEAR NATIONAL LAKESHORE. Pierce Stocking Drive will take your breath away. Hike, kayak, canoe, tube or bike. Kayak/canoe/bike rentals right in town. Tennis courts, too! Or visit some of the neighboring towns like Empire, Cedar or Leeland. You will not run out of things to do!
Why this condo? Well the view is unmatched, it's spacious, well appointed, ground level, professionally cleaned and worth the trip. I look forward to responsible renters that will also appreciate what this condo and the area has to offer.

We stayed at the condo with our children and grandchildren and had the most wonderful time. The condo was clean and roomy enough for all of us. We never felt like we were crowded. Having two bathrooms, two bedrooms a full living room, kitchen and dining area makes it plenty roomy. Even though it was winter the views were magnificent and walking on the beach was very enjoyable. Definitely will be coming back!
We are a Christian, Michigan family who has fallen in love with Leelanau County and Lake Michigan. We have been traveling to the area for 13 years and finally decided it was time to put down stakes. We have 3 children, 2 of which have special needs and we welcome inquiries about how we can accommodate your loved one with special needs.
We decided to buy this condo in this area because we just love it here. The Homestead is a great established resort with the best campus feel. You almost feel you are at camp. Glen Arbor is the friendliest little town where you can walk to and the local artists are happy to tell you about their creations. One week in the town and you'll know why this place is special. In addition, we have always found Leelanau County to be the most beautiful place ever and not just because it was voted so by Good Morning America, although we're not complaining. The views from the condo, the beach, Pierce Stocking Drive will make you drunk with the beauty of this creation. You will leave feeling refreshed and wanting to come back year after year. We did!
While staying at our property you'll enjoy a spacious, well appointed home away from home. Although we are just a phone call away we also have a team of people ready to help should you get locked out or experience any emergency related to your stay. But the best benefit is having a beautiful place to relax, unwind and get away from day to day worries and let the beauty of Lake Michigan and its sweet water and waves refresh your soul and ready you for your real world responsibilities.
Travel to South or North Manitou Islands, wide sugar sand beach, easy trip to Traverse City where there is an airport.
