Reviewer Comments:

For my group of 11 friends and I, this property was just about perfect. The walk up the street to the beach, the included kayaks, built in speaker system, fire pit, corn hole boards and grills were very nice amenities. The property was very clean and pretty much as explained in the description. The three bedrooms downstairs were quiet and the upstairs loft made it nice for an additional 5 friends to sleep comfortably. With the two tables outside on the deck there was enough seating for all eleven of us. Honestly the only two issues we had with the property was that the internet did not ever work correctly (Something the owner said he would look in to) and that the water heater didn't seem to keep up with my groups needs when getting ready for the day. There were a few of us that had to take lukewarm showers, which for some would have been dealbreakers. Overall a very nice property that is close to everything. Will stay at again!

Reviewer Comments:

This is a wonderful property with plenty of room to spread out. I would book this home again, however I feel that it needs a real good spring cleaning! Opening the shades on the windows caused a major dust storm. The kitchen area looks a little worn.

We really enjoyed staying here. As an adult weekend, it was nice to have enough queen size beds so nobody had to sleep on twins. The house is very cozy and the kitchen well stocked. Will definitely consider staying here again.

My husband and I booked the house for ourselves and our 3 adult children and their significant other. More than enough room for all 4 couples---we could have housed even more. Upstairs bath is so spacious and inviting. First downstairs bedroom was cold. Didn't seem to have any heat piping in but we managed to make it work. Ideal location. We were able to zip around to Traverse City, Maple City, Cedar, Leeland and Sutton's Bay.

This house is so spacious and gorgeous. I love the stay here. There were plenty of room for privacy and the living room was able to fit all 9 of us in comfortably. All the bathroom was just great! I love the big bathroom upstairs, could spend lots of time just in there. I love all the historical pictures around the house. The bonfire was at perfect location. Then there were the kayaks, thank you so much for leaving them out there for us! We truly enjoy kayaking down the river. Wished i could've had a bonfire at the beach but it's ok, next time i will. Yep, we are coming back next year!

Map

Sleeping Bear Dunes Area – Nestled on either side of the the Sleeping Bear Dunes are the small towns of Glen Arbor & Empire. The streets are lined with quaint shops and great restaurants. This beautiful area features the breathtaking Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore which is a 72,000-acre national park. The big water beaches are flanked by sand dunes that are 40 stories high. The 500? point of Pyramid Point can be seen from space! The sand is perfect for for sun seekers and hikers. This area will take your breath away.

All of that activity surely makes you thirsty so why not grab a beer or a soda and burger at Art’s Tavern in Glen Arbor or Joe’s Friendly Tavern in Empire. Just west of Glen Arbor is the historic town of Glen Haven that boats historical displays, the Coast Guard museum, and a great sandy beach. In Empire, hike the Empire Bluffs trail for amazing views and have a picnic at the public beach. When the snow arrives, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are great ways to enjoy nature. Staying at the Homestead? Downhill skiing is right out your door. All year long, these towns have something to offer!
