Overview

Northern Michigan Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

You have to love the most beautiful place in America and we have another fine rental in the Glen Arbor area for your enjoyment. Gentle Winds is located on the Crystal River and Lake Michigan at the Homestead (sorry no Beach Club) on the north side of Glen Arbor. This 2 bedroom 2 bath main level walk out and will sleep 6 with 1 Queen, 1 Full, 1 Twin and a Sofabed. Sheets and towels are included. There is a full kitchen with dishwasher. Wood burning fireplace in the living room.

Stunning sunsets are just outside your door. You can dine on the deck or kick back to relax and enjoy the view. The river is a perfect spot to float down the river. Just bring your own tube and have some summertime fun. The village of Glen Arbor is only minutes away. You can rent bikes, canoes and more. Enjoy local wine tasting, shopping the great "up-north" stores, sample the local fare everywhere. Sleeping Bear Dunes is an easy 10 minute drive. Visit Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, Pyramid Point, Alligator Hill and Shauger Hill hiking trails just to name a few. You will want to make this your vacation destination for sure.

Will consider weekly or short stays during any season. Summer 3 night minimum.

Reviewer Comments:

Loved the location right on Crystal River and Lake Michigan. Fun watching adults and kids tubing, canoeing,paddle boarding and kayaking down the river, right from our deck. Great place to walk or bike ride on the paved paths or for a workout walk the beach. Walked to deli which was right at Homestead for lunch every day. Could have used more towels and had no dishcloth called for some but never got any. Chair on deck had a broken arm, called but was never repaired. It was very relaxing vacation. Guys had fun golfing.

Great location. Comfortable living space. Not crazy about the carpet in the front bedroom. Very much needed a washer and dryer!!

Beautiful condo with views of both the Crystal River and the Big Lake. Very clean, well equipped, handy to Glen Arbor. only problem was the water heater seemed to be going out so there was barely enough hot water for even one shower. otherwise everything was great.

Reviewer Comments:

First and foremost, the fees that you have to pay are absolutely ridiculous. You cannot advertise something for X dollars and charge 1.5 times the cost in fees. You have to be kidding me. Second, we love the location. Its am amazing area. We come every year and will continue to come. The cabin was cozy and extremely comfortable. My family had all they needed and had a great time!

Owner's Response: We understand that fees are not something that is welcome. Our fees cover taxes, potential damages, credit card fees and more. We have excellent rates at the Homestead so this helps to balance the fees.

Bad weather weekend turned into a very peaceful weekend away, staying indoors. The view was breathtaking, and we did not mind staying in and enjoying each others company, my wife and I. With our busy lives, that is exactly what we needed for a couple of days.
