Leelanau Net – Lodging and Travel – Sleeping Bear Dunes

The Homestead Resort

Lake Michigan’s spectacular vistas make this a resort unlike others. The color of the water–sometimes blue, sometimes turquoise, sometimes golden–is one reason why. Another is relaxing along the water. You and each member of your family or group can do as much or as little as you like.

That’s why this resort is celebrated, both near and far, as The Homestead, America’s Freshwater Resort.

Lake Michigan Resort

Though expansive, the resort is quite simple to picture.

It was designed, built and is managed to help you enjoy the Most Beautiful Place in America.

On its west are miles of sandy beaches on which you can walk for hours. The beaches are soothing by day, spectacular at sunset, remarkably romantic on starry nights. To its east is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the area chosen by the viewers of ABC’s Good Morning America as “The Most Beautiful Place in America.”

Within the resort, neighborhoods separated by nature provide a wide range of high-quality accommodations. Some are perfect for couples, some for families, and some for groups. All are beautiful. There are shops, restaurants, and recreational facilities. There are places for weddings, , and meetings. All of them are staffed by caring and attentive professionals.

You could be pampered at the spa or salon, sit by a pool, play a round of golf or hike in the National Lakeshore. Or, you could teach your kids to swim, play tennis or golf, ski or snowboard.

Simply said, you decide how you want to spend your time in the Most Beautiful Place in America. We take care of the rest.

Some clouds, some fog, some rain and the Mackinac Bridge in the distance. The boat ride to Mackinac Island is always an adventure. (Some whoop-tee-doos too) #mackinacbridge #mackinac #mackinacisland

Hillside Homestead

Welcome!

Hillside Homestead is a small farm in Suttons Bay, Michigan. I enjoy the homesteading life, with a big slant to historic methods. At this time I’m sharing some adventures here and on social media. I’ve been taking some time to myself and reorganizing the way I do things. More might be available in the future.
Thanks, Susan Odom

Lodging

Lodging is not currently available at Hillside Homestead as I’m taking a break and exploring some other options.

The Riverside Inn

We've seen our fair share of nasty this season, but we've also felt a lot of love and support as well. See a note we received below for an example of how kind and appreciative people can be too.

But first, this is Chef Christine Boerma. She became our Executive Chef this spring amid the pandemic, returning home early from her annual winter migration to instruct at the @italianculinaryinstitute in Calabria so she could quarantine before we opened for the season.

We've gotten rave reviews our on food since she took the reins and we want to make sure when you say "please give my compliments to the Chef" you know who she is. Chef Boerma leads with grace and determination and we're so fortunate to have her creativity and experience steering our team.

And now for the note...

"Hi!

We had an amazing experience at your restaurant and I have to tell you how it was the highlight of our weekend away on vacation!

First, please let your chef know that he/she is incredible!! Food was unique, cooked to perfection and unforgettable! Everyone at our table was in love with the food!

Secondly, we loved the service from our waitress Aurelia!! She was very knowledgeable and personable! We loved her name too! She is a beautiful person!

Third, your wine list is fantastic!!!

The patio in the back was so nice to look out at the water. But I just loved the inside of the restaurant too!

Great job to you running such a great staff and amazing food and wine! Restaurant business is tough but know you are doing an amazing job!

Cheers to all of you! You made my summer in one meal and one evening!

God bless!

Elizabeth B."
