Built in 1956, Grandpa George’s dairy barn has been the source of countless memories for our family. Over the past several years, we’ve created a space, a literal house-in-a-barn, that displays many of Grandpa’s old farm relics, while adding modern touches that appeal to guests of all ages. The result is a wonderfully unique lodging experience. And located in beautiful Huron County, you’re just moments away from the best beaches, boating, fishing, and farms in the entire state of Michigan!

The space
The space consists of a cafe/kitchenette area with a bar height farm table, a great room finished in weathered barn wood and old steel, a private bedroom with a unique ceiling covered in old doors, an adjoining bathroom featuring a shower made from a sheep watering tub, and a loft area with more places to sit, visit, play games, or take a snooze. You’ll enjoy climbing the old wooden ladder, playing board games in the cafe, or shooting a game of pool with a favorite movie playing on the flatscreen TV.

Where you’ll be

Bay Port, Michigan, United States

Bay Port was once named the “Freshwater Fishing Capital of the World.” The fishing industry has declined in recent decades, but the Bay Port Fish Company still offers fresh-caught fish daily, a great public access for boating and fishing, and you can get a wonderful fish dinner at the Bay Port Inn.

Up the road just 10 minutes is Caseville, home of the famous Cheeseburger Festival, a 1/4 mile breakwall that offers priceless sunsets and views of Lake Huron, beautiful marinas, and one of Michigan’s Top 10 beaches.

20 minutes beyond Caseville is Pt. Austin, which has been named a hidden treasure by various travel sites and magazines. Visitors can walk along another breakwall near the beach, take a sunset cruise around the lighthouse, rent a kayak for a trip to Turnip Rock, or enjoy one of several higher-end dining options. Just outside town is the legendary Grindstone General Store which proudly serves some of the largest hand-dipped ice cream cones in the state!

If you’re into farming more than waterfront, Huron County has more cattle than any other county in Michigan, and you can meet them up close by touring one of several mega-dairy operations. Or see a different kind of farming with the state’s largest wind farm, featuring more than 300 windmills spread across the county’s landscape.

Other area attractions include the Thumb Octagon Barn, Dizzy Daisy Winery, the Pt. Austin Playhouse, local farmer’s markets, and various shops and diners. If you’re not familiar with the area but have specific interests, we can get you pointed in the right direction!
