Property description

A Very Best Beach Front and River Front Location Condo. Miles of sandy Beach to walk, jog, explore. And, the Crystal River for Kayaking, floating on a tube, or simply enjoying: in the Fall watch the spawning salmon, in the Spring watch the spawning trout.

Small & Affordable! Great Location…..Fresh & Clean

NOTE: WEEKLY ONLY SUMMER/PEAK SEASON

SUMMER: $885/wk SPRING/FALL: $785/WK

$ 885/wk Summer (mid-June - Labor Day Week)

Great for 2 individuals who would like a wonderful small condo, A/C, Beach and more!
.
Actually 'A Best Location' on Lake Michigan's scenic, long, sandy Sleeping Bear Sand Dune Beach and the Crystal River: enjoy two pristine bodies of water with awesome beach views of the Manitou Islands, Sleeping Bear Point and environs.

'Cozy Condo' is a special place and is best and ideally suitable for an active individual/couple who enjoy out-of-door activities and exploring our beautiful Sleeping Bear Dunes and Leelanau County. There is so much to see and do …. and the area is unique: no chain restaurants, no mega malls, no traffic lights (just a few blinkers), no factories, no mega malls, no billboards, no chain hotels/motels, pure waters, pure air, Pure Michigan!

Float the shallow waters of the Crystal River or Swim/Float atop the rolling waves of Lake Michigan! Walk/Jog the beach, stroll alongside the Crystal River, or walk the Boardwalk which stretches for blocks, just outside the condo building. Or, hike the nearby fitness trail.
Maybe, walk the beach to Glen Arbor, spend evening time on the beach at the nearby Lanphier Observatory for inspiring views of the Northern Lights and clear skies filled with constellations and millions of stars on clear nights.

Enjoy this condo with its affordable rates! Or, rent two or three condos for the family … or invite friends, perhaps another couple.

This entire Leelanau Peninsula has it all for a great get-away vacation: no mega malls, no traffic lights, no chain fast food places, no dwellings above three stories, no chain motels or hotels, no billboards, et al. But, Traverse City, only 35 minutes away, is a charming coastal city that has much of what you will not find in Leelanau County.

Leelanau County does have Vineyards/wineries, 5 or 6 charming coastal villages where you will find galleries, boutiques, cottage book stores, local farm markets, concerts, exhibits, fesitvals, unique shops/stores, fudge, A Ferry to escort you to/from South Manitou Island, local fishing charters, private sailboats/yachts, and dining from casual to five star (my favorite in LaBecasse, s Country French Restaurant in nearby Burdickville). And Leelanau County has exceptional scenery, rolling countryside terrain, wildlife abounding, golf, tennis, biking and hiking trails, plenty of nature and plenty of friendly people who love the out-of-doors.

'Leelanau': the Indian word for 'Land of Delight', and it truly is.

Glen Arbor, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Leelanau County: a place like no other in the world.

Note: This rental does not include access to a pool, OR my kayaks/canoe. The purchase of a service from the resort's Amira Spa MAY give you access to a pool: call the Homestead for details . Golf and Tennis courses are available nearby. Rent kayaks, Bikes, Canoes in Glen Arbor.

Keywords: Lake Michigan Beach Front Homestead Resort Studio Efficiency Condo, Glen Arbor, and in the heart of Sleeping Bear Sand Dune National Lakeshore Park. Can accomodate 1 to 3 individuals.
