GLEN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A northern Michigan resort has closed a restaurant for the summer because it doesn’t have enough workers.

The Homestead, in Leelanau County near Lake Michigan, says it recently held a job fair - and no one showed up. Beppi’s, a sports bar at the resort, is closed except for private parties, and a day camp for kids has been scratched.

On its website, The Homestead says finding employees has been a problem for two years, despite a starting wage of $9 to $15 per hour, free skiing and golf and other benefits. Lodging is $220 a month.

The Homestead is a year-round, 500-acre resort in Glen Arbor surrounded by Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
