The Birds Nest is an above-the-garage studio apartment with a view of the valley and our working farm. Located at the end of a quiet dirt road, our 36 acres provide a respite for the body and soul with trails and vistas, and engage the mind in sustainable agriculture with a tour ($25 value, incl. w/stays of 2+ nights).

Easy access to both Grand Rapids and the lakeshore's farm-to-table restaurants, many of which we supply with fresh greens all year.

The space
A working farm that has been in our family for 114 years located on the southern half of Mud Lake. Please be aware that this is a farm, and we do have a well for our drinking water. It will not smell like chlorine (like municipal water), but is tested regularly and is completely safe. We have a whole-house water softener, a filter on the shower, and reverse osmosis water in the kitchen.

The Bird's Nest has 1 queen-sized bed and 1 full-sized futon. It can acommodate up to 4 guests, but is most comfortable for 2.

We've listed as not suitable for children under 12 (Airbnb's age window for this option) due to an open staircase in the listing (see photos for reference). Please let us know if you plan to bring younger children, and take whatever precautions you feel are necessary.

Guest access
The Bird's Nest has its own entry and has a coffee maker and several types of teas. Guests are welcome to wander the property; walk thru our old growth forest, sit by the lake and see the wilds of nature. The lake is not swim-friendly, but is a great place to bird-watch.

Other things to note
As an added bonus, an Airbnb stay of two nights or more also includes a free farm tour for guests, a $25 value. Due to COVID concerns, we're no longer including a tasting of our cordials, but you will receive four of our farm-crafted sodas to sample.

We've recently upgraded our WiFi to hi-speed, great for any online work you may need to do during your stay. We do not have cable or satellite TV, but our TV gets most local digital stations, and includes an Amazon Firestick (please plan to use your own account for any paid subscriptions).

We have a small farm in west Michigan, growing hydroponic lettuce, herbs, and micros. We grow a variety of other things, like arctic kiwi, elderflowers, hazelnuts, and ginger. We also make small batch cordials (flavored syrups) from the elderflowers, ginger, chamomile, and other things we grow, which we sell and use to make sodas. We are laid-back travelers, and enjoy getting off the beaten track to meet people and enjoy local food.
