Need another incentive to come see the orchards around Leelanau Peninsula erupt in full bloom ths spring? The Homestead Resort, on Leelanau Peninsula’s coast is offering a super spring deal: Reserve any two nights for a stay in May, and you’ll receive a third night free.

Better yet, the deal is available in all accommodations at the luxurious waterfront resort. Choose from the fabulous, family-friendly Fidler’s Pond; Little Belle, a romantic, boutique hotel; Stony Brook Lodge, an all-suite respite with spectacular water views; or The Inn, an historic structure on the water’s edge. (The only catch? The deal must be used for a three consecutive night stay.)

More About The Homestead

The resort is situated on some 350 acres of land with about a mile of frontage on Lake Michigan’s Sleeping Bear Bay and several more on the Crystal River. To its west are the Sleeping Bear Dunes and the South and North Manitou Islands.

The beautiful but beguiling waters between the mainland and islands, which are known as the Manitou Passage, have a long history of being the most dangerous shipping lane on Lake Michigan. Some 150 shipwrecks in an underwater preserve attest to that as does the rusted hull of a Liberian freighter, the Francisco Morazan, which you can see protruding from the water at the south end of South Manitou Island.
