Enjoyed our stay, and feel that the leelanau peninsula is one of the most beautiful parts of the country. Hiking, dining, shopping and visiting the wineries are just great. The true north distillery was very worthwhile.

A lovely and massive resort nestled in the state park. Great getaway location with expansive services. We got a room at Fiddler's Pond as it was dog friendly. Nice room with a gas fireplace overlooking the heated pool. The grounds are spectacular. Facilities really cater to families for summer or skiing getaways. Close to lovely Glen Arbor, the Leelaneau peninsula wineries/Fishtown, and Traverse City.

Here is a lovely facility on Lake Michigan and Sleeping Bear Dunes where you can go and relax. It has golf, tennis, an exercise room, a spa, restaurants on site, beautiful pools, walking trails, skiing in the Winter and boating in the summer and 71,000 acres to wander around and breathe. Enjoy.

Room Tip: There are different places to stay on site-several kinds of hotels (near a pool, near the Lake, in t...

My wife and I stayed in Fiddlers Pond the weekend before Memorial Day. We were impressed with the Homestead grounds and amenities. However, the May flies and loud music til midnight from a wedding next door kept the trip from being perfect. We will definitely book a room closer to the lake or with a view from Loggers Run next time we stay. FYI There is a generous policy to let you use the pool after you check out (keep your room keycard)

I was a little nervous from reading reviews about condos before traveling, but we were very happy with the Crystal condos. We had plenty of room for two adults and three kids. We went to go skiing and it was excellent. The lift operators were friendly and the slopes were not crowded. I will admit our family skill level is low to moderate. So, even though the terrain park was lame, we did not care. Beautiful views of Lake Michigan make the lift rides enjoyable!

We have owned a condo since I was born. There. Is so much stuff to do at such a relaxing resort. Lake Michigan is a walk away, the sleeping bear dunes are a short drive away, and if out doors isn't your thing, don't fear, the town is a mile away. It is filled with delightful little shops and, the famous cherry republic head quarters. There is also boat rentals and kayak rentals in the town. There is something for everyone. I love this place and I hope you do to.
