Simple Quality Rentals

This section lists properties that are of a simpler quality that haven’t been as updated or are in more of an “original condition.” All properties should be very clean, regardless of how updated they have or have not been! Renting a “simpler quality” property can often save you quite a bit of money!

Seasonal Rate Schedule:

Summer Season: June 11th - September 7th Fall Season: September 8th - December 23rd Holiday: December 24th – January 7th Winter: January 8th - March 7th Spring: March 8th - June 10th


*Peak summer rentals are weekly, and turnover days are designated in the property’s description. Fall, winter, and spring seasons have two night minimums, and holidays have three night minimums (with exception given to our “distance” properties, which always have three night minimums). However, with any season, we often have
“last minute” flexibility and run special rates and deals! Please feel free to check with us with any questions!

“Easy access to the beach.  Good amenities! Leather couches were very nice!  The kitchen was well stocked with what we needed for cooking. We always love staying at The Homestead and have recommended Leelanau Vacation Rentals to many friends.  It was a very pleasant experience all around.  Everyone is so warm and welcoming.  Makes you love the vacation even more.”
