The year is 2015 and no WiFi is not acceptable especially for the price. I own my owns business and need WiFi so I can stay on top of the daily work that is needed when you own your own business. In 2015 you would think internet in a 4 star hotel would be expected. The rooms are also very... More

My husband and I stayed at the Homestead last week for 4 night . Our room was quiet and clean . My biggest complaint is that the mattresses are very old and the sheets are thread bare.. with an old blanket and old foam pillows. We recently stayed at Grand Traverse Resort and had beautiful fluffy duvet and great linens.... More

The Homestead is huge. And, not all accommodations are equal so check on the location and accommodations before booking. We stayed in a two-bedroom suite in Stony Brook Lodge. The rooms were ok - nothing special. We were disappointed that it was so far from everything. If we were to go back, we would stay near the lake. We also... More

We went last weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had such a great time, good food at both Beppi's and Nona's and awesome massages at the spa. We absolutely love it here. Wellington at Nona's always goes above and beyond for us, along with the other wait staff at both places. We like the outdoor area at Beppi's, such... More

My husband and I stayed at the Homestead for a weekend, we attended a wedding there in mid-May. Our room was clean and pleasantly decorated. Very appropriately appointed for a 'woodsy' location. We had a small deck off of our room that a stream ran past. We were close to the rest of the guests that were also attending the... More

My husband and I spent our 25th anniversary at The Homestead. Our first trip and we hope to go again. The location on Lake Michigan is beautiful . The water is so blue on the area. The dunnes are majestic. We stayed at the Inn. The room was fine. A bit dated but the view makes up for it. The... More

The Homestead in Glen Arbor, Michigan is very nice. We stayed at The Inn on the property after a round of Golf at the Manitou Passage. The Resort property features a nice village, Pool w/hot tub outdoors overlooking Lake Michigan and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. The Crystal River runs through the property and is true to its name. The pool... More

We just got back from staying in the sundance condo and we were very pleased with the condo and the resort! The condo was clean, the reception desk friendly and the housekeeping staff was very nice and accommodating to our needs. There were a few days we slept in and didn't leave to go sight seeing until late and they... More

We're in the middle of a week long stay here. We have the Firefly cabin #1. It's a beautiful cabin in a beautiful setting! Check in was friendly and fast. There is a shuttle to take you around the huge property , but we've been walking because they have nice walking paths. The Homestead has several different types of accommodations... More
