Property description

Charming and cozy rustic two bedrooms plus a nice spacious loft on Lake Michigan in the Homestead Resort. Very private location, gated private parking, and beautiful sunsets.

Mid Century Modern Style, with vaulted ceilings throughout, which make it seem more spacious than it is. A million dollar view overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan enjoy spectacular evening sunsets. Teak built in cabinets, ceiling, and baseboards. The condo was built in the 60's and is still 'original' in many ways. There is one full bath with original tub, and one half bath. Kitchen has been somewhat updated, but very small. Small bar style counter with two short stools, perfect for kids. Pull out kitchen table in living room that will seat up to 6, plus 2 children can sit at the kitchen bar.
Small microwave, toaster, coffee maker, electric frying an, basic utensils, dishes, glasses, silverware, all quite eclectic. You provide your own paper products, although there will be a 'set' in place on your arrival.
Nestled in the woods in a discreetly gated property. Your stay will remain anonymous, with us. No public check in required. Your identity will never be known. Great for people who want a little R&R without the hustle and bustle of a typical tourist destination.
Despite the location on the water, the condo is nestled behind a small dune which provides which is very peaceful and quiet, yet your Lake view is unobstructed. There is a warm small river which gently runs behind and into the Lake. This is wonderful for small children to play in, as well as adults to float in during the summer months.
There is a luxurious king size bed in the master bedroom, a set of twin beds in the second bedroom and 2 sets of bunk beds in the large open loft. One full bath on the main floor and and half bath in the loft.
Although the condo does sleep 8, it is truly only suitable for a maximum of 4 adults and 4 children.
Our condo is on the top floor of the building and it is not handicap accessible. There is a small spiral staircase that leads up to the loft. The loft is great for the kids.
One set of clean sheets on the beds are provided, 2 towels and wash cloths per guest.
Note: Although the condo is located inside the Homestead Resort, it is not a resort owned property, it is privately owned. The Homestead Resort Pools or Tennis Courts are not available for use. Although the Resort restaurants, grocery store, spa, skiing, golf, and salon are open to the public.

Check out Christmas Holiday Specials. Long term rental available during 'off season'.

Car: Recommended

Glen Arbor is one of the best kept secrets in the world. It is a small, quiet, charming, community that is home to the Cherry Republic. Every business is unique, there are no chain food restaurants or stores. The beaches are magnificent. Our little condo is located in the Homestead Resort, however, it is NOT managed by the Resort. It is available exclusively through this site.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1996

About: We have 6 grown children, 4 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild. We were fortunate to be able to bring our young children up during the summers to get away from the city, enjoy the beach and simplicity of charming Glen Arbor. During the winters, we'd often ski at the Homestead every chance we got. As the children have grown and gone their separate ways, we seldom use our lovely little getaway, so we have decided to share it with other special families and people.

Why Glen Arbor:
It is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It is quiet, cozy, relaxing, and a perfect place. Once you experience it, you will understand. If you like and enjoy Midcentury Modern architecture, you will enjoy this.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There are many things to do here. So, it really depends upon your style and taste. I am a writer, so I enjoy the quiet solitude of the area. I am not a cook, so we enjoy the fine restaurants, the local merchants, and shopping. There is a fabulous spa that overlooks the Lake where we enjoy massages. We go Morel hunting, hiking, and sun bathing. There are several art galleries and unique shops in town. The knit shop is my favorite and every year I purchase a hand made sweater or scarf that was created over the winter by the local ladies who sit together and knit. The Cottage Book shop is also a favorite. I think Glen Arbor and The Homestead is a 'magical' place. Quite Serene, secluded, and rustic. Far from - a 5 star hotel- but the experience makes up all the difference if you are looking for something different and special.
