About Sally Cole-Misch

Three generations have enjoyed this special spot since the condo was built in 1985. We love to hike and ride on the peninsula's many trails and enjoy the beaches, parks and towns almost as much as hanging out on the private beach right outside the condo's doors. For us it is the perfect home away from home.

Why Sally Cole-Misch chose Glen Arbor

The area is a great place to make family memories that will last a lifetime, and the condo provides everything to help you do that. The people of Glen Arbor and the surrounding areas are welcoming and helpful. This area of Michigan is a gift to all who visit and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

What makes this condo unique

The area is unique in its beauty in all four seasons, and was voted as the 'Most Beautiful Place in America' by Good Morning America! The views from the decks and beach are spectacular and relaxing, the Homestead has plenty of amenities to enjoy (spa, golf, skiing, restaurants, workout facilities, nature trails, kayak and paddleboard rentals). The condo's first floor location is great for carrying in groceries and luggage without any flights of stairs, and for getting to the beach easily. This is a warm and welcoming condo that we hope you will enjoy as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very spacious and clean. To be able to walk out the back door to the beach was very convenient or sit on the back patio was very relaxing!

Absolutely beautiful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't of asked for a better vacation spot! The place was clean and comfortable with plenty of amenities. Glen Arbor was a close drive or bike ride away along with the Sleeping Bear Dunes, hiking trails, and much more. The beach was right there so it was easy to get to. I loved that it was tucked back a bit in the homestead, seemed like a secret oasis. My favorite part was the view, you could see the sunset every night under Lake Michigan! You can tell the owners love and care for their place. I will definetly be taking my family back there again!!

Delightful week for our family, once again!

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to thank you for a delightful week at your vacation home in South Beach. Everything was great, weather was basically perfect. If you have a week available next July, we'd be interested in returning for another year to Unit 12. Thank you!

Very comfortable, amazing sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family enjoyed our time in your condo at Glen Arbor. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the surrounding towns, but always rushed back to make sure we could see the wonderful sunsets. The condo was clean and ready for us when we arrived. Thanks for the opportunity to visit.

Welcome! There are so many activities to enjoy amidst the spectacular beauty of Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore and the Bay, which is right outside your door. Hike the more than 20 trails in the Lakeshore Park, climb the dunes or tour the dunes via the beautiful Pierce Stocking Drive. Ride bikes throughout the Homestead Resort, into Glen Arbor and on the Heritage bike trail to the Dunes and even on to the town of Empire or north to Port Oneida. Enjoy the restaurants, shops and galleries of Glen Arbor and nearby Leland, the oldest fishing town in Michigan, where you can also take a ferry out to North and South Manitou Islands. Both towns have weekly farmer's markets and fun Fourth of July parades. Grab some tubes and float or kayak the Crystal River, choose from several golfing options nearby, as well as wineries for touring. And best of all, grab a chair and towel and revel in the beauty of the beach and Lake Michigan just a few steps from the deck. Welcome and enjoy!
