About the property

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.

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 oldest 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." Our youngest says she likes the comfort of the mini couch.(love seat) The 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.

About Glenn Schwartz

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.

Glenn Schwartz purchased this condo in 1989

Why Glenn Schwartz chose Glen Arbor

The Lake Michigan shoreline has always been the main reason why we purchased this particular condominium.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five recently spent a week in this condo and found it to be the perfect vacation spot! The location was incredible...steps from the beach with a view that cannot be beat! The condo itself was very well appointed and comfortable. Highly recommend this as a place to stay. The owner was so easy to communicate with and gave us helpful tips on sites to explore. We are definitely planning to come back next year...maybe for more than one week!

Beautiful condo in a spectacular location

  • 5 of 5

This condo comes exactly as advertised on VRBO. It looks out on Lake Michigan, the Manitou Islands, and Sleeping Bear Dunes from a covered deck, a perfect spot from which to observe sunset. Actually, we spent much of the day on the deck, reading and watching the surf. The condo is immaculate and well-appointed with great views of the lake through the sliding glass doors that line the lakeside wall of the unit. While there are other condos in the building, the patios are situated so as to provide privacy. It is conveniently located for the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail (for biking and walking) that extends for many miles northeast and southwest of Glen Arbor, and is at most a 10-minute bike ride from town. While the beach is not wide, it is easily accessible for walking or kayaking. Nearby Good Harbor Bay and beach is excellent for beach walking. Glen Arbor is a charming town with great restaurants and shopping. The owner was easy to work with, responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this condo; just don't sign up for the week I want!

We spent two summer vacations at this property and loved every minute, the sunsets are fantastic, the beach is tight at your feet and the adorable town of glen arbor is a short bike ride or nice walk away! The owners are lovely and super helpful too.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice condo. Accommodated two couples very well. Beautiful setting overlooking lake Michigan and sitting literally on the beach. We have stayed at the Homestead complex several times over the past 30 years. Working with the owner went very well.

Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at this condo and could not have been happier. Well appointed, clean, great location for everything this lovely area has to offer. Beautiful beach right outside the door with the most stunning sunsets I can remember. We have been traveling to this area for many years and this is one of our favorite spots that we have every stayed. Glenn was a pleasure to work with and we look forward to our next visit.

What a beautiful condo! We really enjoyed the amenities and view. There is a lot to do in Glen Arbor. One of our favorite places. Bike the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail. Drive the scenic "Pierce Stocking drive through the national forrest......bring your camera! Climb the dunes, Kayak the Crystal River. You can rent Kayaks in town at a very reasonable price. Arts Tavern is a fun local watering hole and has THE BEST breakfast in town.....bring cash, they do not take credit cards. Cherry Republic is a must if you like cherries! Just relaxing on the deck or strolling the beach is also amazing. We already booked for another vacation there! Thank you Kathy and Glenn!
