We stayed in one of the hotel rooms (vs. the condos). We stayed in Little Belle. It was comfortable, nice jacuzzi tub and the staff was friendly. The room was a junior suite so it had a separate living area and was decent sized. However, the shower, although updated, was tiny. You could barely turn around or even get out... More

We love the Glean Arbor and Sleeping Bear dunes area of MI. The Homestead Resort's location just outside Glen Arbor makes this for a perfect spot. Unless you book a B&B, there is no better place to stay in the area. Service, while unremarkable, was good.

Our daughter loved this room! We were in 51 at Fiddler's Pond, and we had a small patio that backed up to the stream. We were very close to the town center with the restaurants a 2 minute walk away. We would just walk out our back door to go to breakfast and dinner. Had we not made plans with... More

We have stayed at the resort a number of times and enjoyed our stays up until now. Up to this point I would given my stays here a "4". This time we are in a first floor end unit room without a view. Other than new chairs, there is nothing redeeming about this room, it's very spartan and unwelcoming. Such... More

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the rooms and your preferred choice for Fiddler's Pond. It is true, some units have a door to a balcony or terrace, others do not. We're happy to help you with those requests through our reservations office. We hope you were able to enjoy the rest of your visit and apologize that we... More

We love Glen Arbor and the entire area- 5th stay here- and location can't be beat! Loved the room, view and fireplace! Visited all 3 pools and played golf at mountain flowers- the perfect spot as a base camp for the beautiful area!

Great location quite ambiance - clean and safe ALWAYS a delight to come here OK - most units do not have A/C, and this was a pretty hot weekend. It's usually not a problem The cost per night is not cheap, but it's worth the cost

We stayed in the Ship Watch area on the side of the mountain with a view of the lake. Sunsets every night from our balcony. My daughters and my grandchildren and my husband had a wonderful time relaxing around the pool and walking on the beach. We even took the yoga session one morning. We had a full kitchen, washer...

We have stayed at the Homestead for years and years, usually in the Inn or one of the condo units. We went up on short notice, and nothing was available in our usual units. We opted for a king size bedroom in Fiddler's Pond. No kitchen, etc, a very small fridge, but ok if you aren't looking for a kitchen.... More

Just spent 5 nights at this resort. We stayed in RidgeTop 7, a 2 bedroom condo. A bit dated but very clean and had everything we needed. We booked on line and received a call the next day to make sure we understood this unit did not have A/C and had MANY stairs leading to it but did have a... More

Chose The Homestead for it's location near the Sleeping Bear Dunes and it's affiliation with Manitou Passage golf course. The accommodations were comfortable for our family of four. Room amenities were adequate but the Fiddlers Pond location was superb! In the heart of the Village area- only steps away from restaurants and shopping. Special kudos to Rachel in registration for...
