Lake Michigan view lodging-small NW Michigan Fall trip

I want to go early Oct 2013 to the Sleeping bear dune, Leland peninsula area for a week.

Not big on the Traffic of Traverse City, finishing a novel and want to sit outside hear the waves, or at least see the water and proof entire composition.

Renting a condo at The Homestead? may be an option, been there done that.

I rented a condo at Shanty Creek as well.

Is there anyplace else? Right now, shanty creek, so I can read, look out at Lake Bellaire, and walk down to lodge for a whirlpool seems likely.

Just looking for a new setting? Ideas?

I should have asked... How far do you want to drive?

What about Watervale Resort north of Arcadia and south of Elberta? I'm not sure when they close for the season. Check for places around the Herring Lakes.

Wow, everyone is so helpful on Tripadvisor. I thought I knew the area well, but never heard of Watervale Resort.

Thanks Upnorth 98 !
