Stunning grand-design hideaway for nature lovers on one of the most pristine Northern shores of Lake Michigan. This atmospheric 4000 sq ft. barn-style house can accommodate extended families. Enveloped by Hiawatha Forest and no neighbours in half mile radius, peace and tranquility are guaranteed. The house (sleeping 7-10) has a large indoor swimming pool with sauna. Two self-contained log cabins can be rented separately, sleeping 5 (lake view) and 4 (in the woods). THIS IS NOT A PARTY VENUE!

The space
The entire spacious house is yours. Besides the large open plan living space on the ground floor and the bedrooms on the first floor, there are two lofts above on another level. Then there is a garage/workshop, where you find the washer and the dryer. Above the garage is a large multifunctional room that can be used as double bedroom, yoga/meditation room or as office, equipped with a large desk and a plasma screen (for movie nights). With so many rooms/floors, the house can be made functional for larger groups. We’ve had groups up to 15 people stay here for retreats (& 5 in the cabin). Larger groups on specific request only (as we want to stay clear of groups that seek a place to party).
The pool (heated year round @ 85 F) and sauna are for exclusive use for the guests of the main house.
