Waking up to absolute peace and quiet, I felt calmness settle around me. The darkness of the early morning is all you see once you step outside the door of your room at The Homestead. The birds haven’t woken up yet. As you head over to get some breakfast, you walk along wooded trails surrounded by evergreen trees lit by Christmas lights.
Four seasons a year, you can enjoy a spectacular view of Lake Michigan and enjoy the numerous amenities of The Homestead. Depending on the weather, you can golf, ski, boat, and bike all around the resort. If you enjoy exploring, you are a hop, skip, and a jump away from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
There are excellent food choices at the restaurants/bars on the resort, or you can grab something at Cavanaugh’s Deli & General Store. The rooms are spacious with some of them even having fireplaces and patios out back. Perfect place to relax after a full day of skiing, or climbing up and down the sand dunes.
