We have vacationed in the Glen Arbor area for the past 20 years or so, have rented directly through the Homestead Resort, years ago, when it was cheaper, and most recently through the rental companies, that have units there.
Our three boys have grown up with summer vacations along the shores of Lake Michigan, and last summer, stayed at a beach house a block from the Lake in Glen Arbor, it was great.
Of course we have been to Leland, fish town, etc., glen haven, the coast guard museum area, the dune climb, everywhere, art's tavern, everywhere in glen arbor, my now 15 year old son, even played the piano, at the Western ave. grill when he was about 8 during dinner, to draw quite an applause.
This summer, we are financially strapped, as my husband, age 74, I am 56, as of the 28th of July, and we have looked at a couple rentals in Omena and Northport, along the bay. Are you familiar with that area?
We want to bring the 9 month old Boxer pup "Moses", with us, and there a couple of rentals along the bayside. I know the bayside is more rocky, but one of the rentals is in the "Cherry Homes Northport Subdivision", which is a bit of a walk to the beach.
One of the rentals is in Omena, bayside, just north of Suttons Bay.
Are you familiar with the area?
We were asking for a big discount, a home, 3 bed. 2 bath, with washer and dryer, and linens provided available for aug. 9th for a week at $1440.00 a week including all taxes, etc., but they would discount to
$1200.00 plus all fees. We have three six foot tall, 190 lbs. sons, and a dog, do you think we would like it there?
I have been to Northport only once in the past 20 years. We love Glen Arbor, and Leland,
Are you familiar with the Cherry HOmes Subdivision in Northport?
Do you think we would like the Omena beachhouse area?
3 bedrooms, two baths, washer dryer, linens provided. dog allowed. waterfront.
We are somewhat on a limited income, due to my husband losing his job 18 months ago, paying extreme amount for insurance through COBRA, which expires tomorrow. I just broke my wrist monday night, my birthday! Have a brace on it now, after seeing Dr. Today.
Our boys love the Lake. And we do too.
We are used to the awesome Lake Michigan beaches at the Homestead, and the beaches at the private rental homes in Glen Arbor.
I would appreciate any comments or info that you could provide if you are familiar with the area of Omena, just north of Suttons Bay.
I know that the bayside of the Lake is a bit more rocky, But it isn't far from the west shore of Northport.
I am going to wait til maybe friday to call again, to see if the house is not rented and if the owners will discont to $1000.00 plus tax and fees.
I just broke my wrist monday nite, and got it treated today, with a removable cast.
Any comments will be appreciated.
We love Glen ARbor, leland, Fishtown, Art's Tavern, Glen Haven, the Dune Climb., etc.
I realize that most of your comments are with regard to the lower area, regarding South Haven, etc., but if you are familiar with the areas I have mentioned, I would appreciate any comments.
