The Homestead is a large, beautiful, hilly property right on Lake Michigan. There are a number of different housing options. We have stayed in the Stoney Brook Lodge, high up on a hill, a few times. The units are like apartments with a living/dining/kitchen area (with cast iron stove), bedroom, bath, and porch overlooking Lake Michigan. Good choice for families.
The ski runs are good for kids and novice adults. No long waits for the lifts. Because it is relatively small, we feel comfortable letting our kids hit the slopes on their own.
There are several dining options from deli style/grocery store (Cavanaugh's) to more upscale adult (Nonna's). Also, Spa Amira offers massages in a beautiful setting high on a hill overlooking the lake.
The adjacent town of Glen Arbor is charming (home to the World Headquarters of The Cherry Republic) and Sleeping Bear Dunes are nearby for sledding and snowshoeing.
Overall, The Homestead is a very low key, relaxing, family friendly resort in a beautiful natural setting on Lake Michigan. Also, excellent value for the rates. We have visited several times with family and friends.
