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...

our second trip to The Homestead. Love the solitude, the natural beauty and many activities. You are on Lake Michigan and although the water is cold, it is crystal clear and there is enough of an inlet to paddle board and kayak right from the beach or look for Petoskey stones. The pool and hot tub are conveniently located next... More

The Homestead staff works hard to provide a lovely destination wedding location- the food is good and the staff is friendly- and the grounds are very pretty. It's a little cold up there this October, but still beautiful.

This is a beautiful place with everything you need. The Village is right outside of your door. You can eat, drink or shop without going anywhere. The sound of the water flowing out of the pond is a soothing end to your day. Highly recommended!

We were interested in staying some place close to Sleeping Bear Dunes. The room was a bit outdated, the grounds were gorgeous and we had a balcony with a view of a man made stream and of the restaurants. It wasn't noisy at all but we stayed in September and I wondered if we had stayed during the busy time... More
