Northern Michigan Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

First floor air conditioned condominium with direct access to Lake Michigan sugar sand beach. The unit is located at the southern most area of The Homestead Resort. Expansive sliding glass doors overlook Sleeping Bear Bay and the Manitou Islands. The master suite contains a a queen bed and attached oversized bath. The guest room also is configured with a queen bed. The guest bath includes a full shower and is located just off the hallway. A full kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator with icemaker, a large dining room and convenient laundry room is included. Ceiling fans are in both bedrooms and living room providing great ventilation, but to maximize comfort our unit has air conditioning. It is one of the few that has this amenity.

During the busy summer months, a Sunday to Sunday schedule is maintained. During the balance of the year, a Sunday departure is preferred and the standard nightly rate is reduced for stays of 3 or more nights.

Recent guests have used words such as 'perfect', 'inspirational', and 'awesome' to describe their vacation experience at our condo. Our oldest granddaughter claims "This condo is just a walk from heaven. At night you can watch the sun set over beautiful Lake Michigan creating magical colors." Our youngest says she likes the comfort of the mini couch.(love seat) The condo looks directly out at Sleeping Bear Bay and the sand dunes. Glen Arbor and nearby towns of Leland, Suttons Bay, and Northport offer excellent dining and shopping opportunities. The pristine Crystal River is at your backdoor and the majestic Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore surrounds the area with unbelievable and breathtaking views. While the resort's Beach Club is not available to renters, several of their retail shops (including their Spa) along with their restaurants are open to the public.

Stay a few days or a few weeks - you will not be disappointed.

About Glenn Schwartz

Currently residing in Tennessee my wife and I enjoy returning to Glen Arbor several weeks each year. The area is protected by the surrounding Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore and offers a multitude of outdoor attractions. We enjoy the nearby golf courses, a bike ride on the paved Heritage Trail, or simply relaxing on the beach. Lately, we've added boating on Glen Lake as well as sailing on Grand Traverse Bay.

Glenn Schwartz purchased this condo in 1989

Why Glenn Schwartz chose Northern Michigan

The Lake Michigan shoreline has always been the main reason why we purchased this particular condominium.

What makes this condo unique

In addition to all of the outdoor activities, the changing of the seasons, including the solitude of winter, has been a source of stress relief. Nature, with all of its power, makes your daily life a little more meaningful.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice condo. Accommodated two couples very well. Beautiful setting overlooking lake Michigan and sitting literally on the beach. We have stayed at the Homestead complex several times over the past 30 years. Working with the owner went very well.

Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at this condo and could not have been happier. Well appointed, clean, great location for everything this lovely area has to offer. Beautiful beach right outside the door with the most stunning sunsets I can remember. We have been traveling to this area for many years and this is one of our favorite spots that we have every stayed. Glenn was a pleasure to work with and we look forward to our next visit.

What a beautiful condo! We really enjoyed the amenities and view. There is a lot to do in Glen Arbor. One of our favorite places. Bike the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail. Drive the scenic "Pierce Stocking drive through the national forrest......bring your camera! Climb the dunes, Kayak the Crystal River. You can rent Kayaks in town at a very reasonable price. Arts Tavern is a fun local watering hole and has THE BEST breakfast in town.....bring cash, they do not take credit cards. Cherry Republic is a must if you like cherries! Just relaxing on the deck or strolling the beach is also amazing. We already booked for another vacation there! Thank you Kathy and Glenn!

What a wonderful place! Just step off the deck and walk along the waterfront or enjoy the beach. The deck is also a great place to relax and take in the beauty of Lake Michigan, sunsets and Sleeping Bear Dunes. The location could not be better. The condo is spacious and well equipped. The property was very clean and attractive. While staying here we enjoyed golfing, hiking trails and boating on Glen Lake. We definitely will recommend this to friends and family.
