This was our second stay at The Homestead. Both times we have been there in the late fall and it is very quiet at the resort. The prices are also very affordable this time of year. We stayed in Fiddler's Pond and our rooms were big, comfortable and clean. Beds are great, room had a fireplace and mini-fridge and we... More

Old furnishings, broken bathroom tile, poor amenities in room. LOUD noise all night kept us from sleeping well despite our close proximity to the office. The staff gave a very insincere apology for our poor stay, but no other reconciliation. I have had better stays at many other hotels with better prices. This place is not worth the hype.

Excellent resort layout. Overall timeshare feel. Beautiful views, great pools. Wish there was a greater variety of food on-site, and a better stocked store for food and supplies. Town of Glen Arbor has a ton of great food and shopping. Would probably rent something in town if I were to head back to Glen Arbor again. Overall, I feel about... More

We stayed at The Homestead in a two bedroom unit in "Stony Brook Lodge." The views were spectacular. The pool deck offered exceptional sunset views of the bay. The unit itself was dated- furniture and bathroom could use a refresh. The resort property as a whole is gorgeous, but dated! This isn't really a "full service" resort, so we didn't... More

We have heard so much about The Homestead....oh, were we disappointed. We stayed at 'The Inn' and the rooms are a good size but very dated. They need new linens and furniture. The bathroom is very tired. Great views and location and we love the fireplace in the room but we think we will try to rent one of their... More

Beautiful venue for our daughters upcoming wedding! The staff was amazing-helpful, courteous and accommodating. Our suite at the Inn was large and beautifully appointed with a coastal theme. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay right on the shore of Lake Michigan! Looking forward to our daughters wedding in this lovely place a year from now.

Short 3 night stay at The Inn Room 1. Review of the suite: we were told it had a full kitchen (wanted to control our diet). It has a refrigerator, dishwasher & 2 burner electric cooktop, but has no oven & is poorly stocked. The appliances, jetted tub & TV’s reminded me of why we update our homes, but they... More

We stayed at the Inn which is across the street from the beach. The room was clean and comfortable. It had a nice view of Lake Michigan and a fire place which we enjoyed on the cool October night. The only negative was the bathroom which needs some updates (shower heads, etc0.

We had a wonderful time at the Homestead Resort. It's so lovely and the staff are very kind and helpful. They have such good manners! They acknowledge you when they're busy and let you know they'll be with you shortly. That's unusual in this day! The staff make the stay very welcoming. They all are so helpful. Thank you Homstead!

We just returned from our second trip in two years to the Homestead. It is a great place in a great place. Although the majority of the property there is for people who have bought condominiums and stay there either part time or full time, the Inn at the Homestead is for people like us who just want to get...
