Description from manager


This fabulous ground floor studio sits on the banks of the beautiful Crystal River surrounded by Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

The white sugar sand beach and crystal clear water of Lake Michigan's Sleeping Bear Bay is a mere 40 meters away, on the other side of a small sand dune across a charming footbridge.   

Don't worry, the Crystal River ought to be called Crystal “stream” or “creek.”   Although too shallow to swim, the warm water and slow flow from Glen Lake is perfect to splash and play in!  For an invigorating swim, Lake Michigan is just the thing and mere steps away.

Relax in the sun on the beach; enjoy the waves and seagulls as they fly overhead.  While luxuriating on the beach soak in the sights of the Manitou Islands (the lighthouse is lit at night!), the enormous Sleeping Bear dune, the billowing sails of yachts passing during the Chicago to Mackinac Race, and the great lake freighters making their way through the Manitou Passage.  When staying at The Cabana you are welcome to use the beach walk over to Lake Michigan but you will not have access to the pool or other amenities.

Enjoy the early evening as the red sun slowly sinks into the blue waters of Lake Michigan.  At night take your beach blanket and lie under the stars while listening to the gentle lap of the waves.  From time to time you may see the Northern Lights!  There are no lights at the beach to distract from the full majesty of the star lit night sky.

Waterfront Studio is located in the very heart of The Homestead Resort.  Gated reserved parking means you never have to hunt for a parking space. 

This cozy nest is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay in what ABC Good Morning America television declared ”The Most Beautiful Place in America"!

This air conditioned dream has a queen bed in the main room and a separate bathroom (shower only). The kitchen is fully equipped with mini-fridge, retro oven/stove top, all appliances and cookware, utensils, dishes, glassware and silverware.  The unit has all bed, bath & kitchen linens; you need only bring your personal affects and beach towels!  Cable TV and free WiFi, too.

Enjoy coffee on the patio in the morning and wave to the kayakers making their way down the river while planning your day.  Will you join them or pack a picnic for a leisurely day on the shore of Lake Michigan?  You could take the M-22 tour and visit our sister communities of Empire, Leland, Lake Leelanau, Northport, Omena & Suttons Bay.  All have their distinct charm with much to recommend them. Winery tours are an excellent way of seeing the county and sampling 'the grape' of some astonishing vintners.  The Heritage Trail beckons with its 16 miles of paved hiking / biking / cross country skiing trails and you are minutes from the Dune Climb and Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive with breathtaking vistas and welcoming picnic areas. Traverse City is only 25 minutes due east for a more 'cosmopolitan' experience but still with a northern Michigan vibe.  And from gourmet to casual dining, there is something to tempt anyone's palate in Leelanau and Grand Traverse counties!

Go horseback riding, rent a boat on Big Glen lake, charter a fishing boat in the hunt for wild salmon, hike countless trails, pick some fresh cherries or blueberries, visit local farmer's markets, take in some live entertainment, try your luck at the casino, take in a movie at one of the last drive-ins in the country, visit the Manitou Islands via ferry, attend a local festival...the list goes on and on.  There is something for every interest in our corner of Paradise!

We are now accepting reservations for 3+ nights  Please call early as our season fills up fast for peak dates.  We look forward to helping you discover all that this area has to offer!
