Property description

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 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." ABC'S Good Morning America voted the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore 'The Most Beautiful Place in America!' Our 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.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Tax Rate 6%

Notes:

The standard rate is reduced to $275/night for a 3 or more night rental during the Spring, Fall, or Winter seasons.

Pets are not allowed and this is a non-smoking unit. It is one of the few Air Conditioned Condos in the Glen Arbor area. We use our unit several times during the year and keep it very clean and comfortable.

Deposit of 20% required and is fully refundable up to 60 days prior to arrival at which time balance is due. Not set up to process credit cards, so checks are the preferred method of payment. The 6% tax is for the State of Michigan Use Tax.


Please wait... Travel with confidence

Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Glen Arbor:
The Lake Michigan shoreline has always been the main reason why we purchased this particular condominium.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
