About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Awesome views of the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Manitou Islands and Lake Michigan to the horizon, with the Crystal River as a fore-drop. The Sunsets are incredible, the Northern Lights spectacular and the stars/constellations never seemed closer. Very special.

Sorry .... This Condo does not have Internet/WiFi access. To connect to the Internet, guests are directed to other locations: The Leelanau Coffee House and/or Cherry Republic in Glen Arbor. Or, the Public Library in Empire. There is no Telephone Service in the condo.

This 'Town Home" styled condo has high ceilings in the main room (kitchen/living room), a queen bedroom, and a Loft Bedroom with twin beds and separate 1/2 Bath. This Loft Bedroom is accessed by a spiral staircase and in not suitable for young children or anyone with a handicapped condition.

The somewhat Small Deck can be a perfect place to relax, read a book, have coffee in the morning or just watch the activities below: kayakers, swimmers, floaters and long boards.

The kitchen is well-equipped, the Queen Bed has newer bedding, the sofa is not a sofa-bed, the TV has cable, and the condo's interesting pictures and lithographs add interest to the condo and environs.

This condo is on the highest floor in the building, up two flights from the ground level (or 1.5 flights from the building entrance). There is no one above you … and only one neighbor next to you.

It is a non smoking and no pets allowed condo.

This two bedroom condo includes one queen bedroom and bath on the main level …. plus an upper level ('Town Home') bedroom with 2 Beds and a bathroom.

Condo is beautifully situated on Lake Michigan beaches and the pristine Crystal River at The Homestead Resort, Glen Arbor.

The condo has an incredible view including the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Lake Michigan and Sunsets to the horizon, Manitou Island and the Crystal River. The view is about a 115 Degree view, not 180.

This condo has both: one of the very best views .... and one of the very best locations at this resort.

There's easy private gated parking for our Tall Timber guests and owners with easy ingress/egress. There's also a long boardwalk right outside the building entrance. There are coin-operated laundry facilities in the building. Bike racks and a grill in the parking lot area.

Keywords: Lake Michigan Beach, Homestead Resort, Glen Arbor, Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. Great Location!

Beautiful Sunsets and Views!!

  • 5 of 5

Condo sleeps four nicely, you could easily do 5 with the pullout in the living room if necessary The beach is directly on the opposite side of the Crystal River - walk thru the river to beach. Views from the balcony are breath taking. Bring tubes so you can tube the river without renting tubes. The unit has a small fridge so make sure you have a cooler for water/drinks etc..

Bikes are a must, the Heritage trail is amazing. Ed the maintenance guy is wonderful and will answer any questions and give you great local information. We are booking same unit for next year- enough said.....

Condo location great, bring tubes to float Crystal River. Sunsets are amazing. Beach area is good but bring your water shoes - there are rocks to walk through to get to sand in the water. Manager was very helpful before and during our stay. Would definitely come back!!!
