The Homestead Resort

The Homestead, a Northern Michigan four-season resort, spa and ski hill is located right in the heart of scenic Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, with Lake Michigan, the Crystal River, and the villages of Glen Arbor and Leland just steps away for great team-building and relaxation opportunities. The focus here is on smaller groups—as few as a handful of people or up to 180. Major upgrades to the furniture, fixtures and technology in spring 2016 ensure a world-class experience.

The Homestead offers lodging ranging from Fiddler's Pond, a resort hotel, Little Belle, a boutique hotel, Stony Brook Lodge, an all-suite property with water view and The Inn, a historic structure on the water. Lodging offers lake views, river views, waterfront, slope-side and more. Properties feature fireplaces, kitchens and high-speed internet. Privately owned condominiums and homes are also available for rent, however guests must reserve through the resort to have access to the resort's amenities. Lodging is located near downhill slopes and nordic ski trails. The Homestead is located close to Leelanau County restaurants and shopping as well as Northern Michigan outdoor recreation.
