Always an amazing place for a wedding! Thank you for hosting again! Rayan Anastor Photography
I have stayed here with my wife and friends many times, but would like to float the river with my kids to the lake. Is there anywhere to pick up kayaks/park after a float to enjoy the beach?
Beautiful Monday morning at the Homestead looking out over Lake Michigan
