Reviewer Comments:

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!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a wonderful mini-family reunion mid-September, one of those rare perfect weather weekends up north. When we drove up to the house, we were amazed how spacious and clean it was! The layout is not traditional, but thoroughly usable, with plentiful bedding provided. While we spent most of our time at Sleeping Bear Dunes, we did enjoy a morning kayak on a very nice little river across the street, and saw lots of huge salmon! Very peaceful experience. We also had a campfire just down the street on the lake, and enjoyed the beautiful lake breeze. Getting back to house itself, it's obviously updated, very nice huge shower upsatairs, and a kitchen with everything you'd need, including coffee and filters for the drip machine, or even a French press! Needless to say, we were impressed. We used the BBQ grills as well, having two really helped. All in all, we would love to come for a long weekend, so much to do, we just didn't have enough time. Highly recommend!!!

Reviewer Comments:

Property was unique and charming. A few downsides: our rental was not clean when we arrived at 4pm; we had stored bread in the kitchen pantry and a mouse had gotten into it on the first night; the fixtures and furniture were very dusty. We did have plenty of bathrooms and kitchen supplies (pots, pans, etc).

Reviewer Comments:

Too much to do for just a weekend stay. The home is huge and very well furnished for large gatherings and multiple families. The kayaks were an unadvertised treat. So close to Lake Michigan or town makes this a prime location. If you don't want to paddle to the lake, just carry the kayaks down the road 1/4 mile to a private beach. Our only 'not so great' comment would be to ask the cleaners to get the dust & webs from the light fixtures, doorways and corners more often. But it is a great home with lots of character.

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!
