been going up to Glen Arbor and the Homestead since 1979 and took our grandkids in 2016, 17 and 18. Alos stayed at LeBear-very nice and small-walk to everything in town Used to go up in the fall for winery visits and purchases. Always beautiful

I remember back in the day eating on the second floor of the Inn and watching the sunset. It sparked my future and cemented my retirement to Glen Arbor. Better known as Heaven.

Love the golf course, Manitou Passage, nearby

What a gorgeous day for golf and beautiful views.

From the Ridge at The Homestead. The fall is a special season to be north in Michigan.

Best time of the year! Beautiful!
