Overview

Northern Michigan Condo Rental Photos and Description

1BR/1BA Condo, sleeps 4 (king size bed and fold-out sleeper sofa)

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.

Amazing condo...already booked a second stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how this rental exceeded our expectations!!! The location is amazing. We spend time in Frankfort, Fishtown, Northport and other areas exploring breweries. It was a lovely, romantic get away. We have already scheduled another trip in December. The condo was perfect for a couple and the fireplace was great!

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We found the condo to be *exactly* as pictured, and extremely well-maintained. The location can't be beat -- just steps from the shopping/dining Village at the heart of the Homestead, and a 5-minute drive from Glen Arbor. It was a cozy place to come back to after a day of exploring the dunes or the Leelanau Peninsula. We'll definitely return!

Very nice villa and great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a villa that we will visit again and recommend. It is a great retreat: warm, comfortable and homey. The listing description is accurate and the villa is well-maintained and clean. The owners were very responsive to questions and inquiries by email. The Homestead is a beautiful location. For bikers, the Heritage Trail is one of the nicest we've biked and there is access to the trail just north of the Homestead entrance. We also greatly enjoyed the Funistrada restaurant in Burkickville, just 5-6 miles away.

Nice condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here to attend a wedding at the Homestead. It was very nice, clean and convenient to enjoy the rest of Homestead. I wish we could have stayed longer so that we could have enjoyed it more. The condo was perfect for the 2 of us.

Fabulous get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat visitors to this lovely little condo and would recommend it highly! It is always clean, tastefully decorated, conveniently located, quiet and comfortable. Never had any trouble with noisy neighbors. The owners take meticulous care of their property and make updates regularly. There is even a little deck attached to the kitchen area for private breakfasts in the wooded setting. The king-sized bed is AMAZING; very comfy and spacious. Kitchen is well-stocked with basic cooking utensils, and the jet tub is a relaxing way to unwind after a busy day hiking the dunes or biking the quaint towns in the region.

August Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo for two nights in August and the experience was awesome. The Condo is clean, easy to find and access and was very well put together. The deck and Jacuzzi were both clean and bug free(i have issue with this on other homestead condos in the past). The beach was very clean and free of people considering it was beautiful weekend in August.

Map

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.
