Escape to this beautiful retreat home nestled on 10 forested acres along a babbling creek. This sanctuary is the ideal place to Unplug from your connected life. Enjoying coffee on the back deck, yoga in the studio overlooking the creek, hammock napping among the trees or hiking along your private trails. This home is sparking clean with extra disinfecting during this time and spacing between guests for your safety and comfort.

The space
4 comfortable bedrooms and 2 full baths offer everyone private space in a cozy setting.

Fully stocked, open-concept kitchen was recently remodeled with gas range, toaster oven, microwave, coffee pot, full fridge/freezer, and all the dishes, pans, and spices you'll need. Water is spring fed and delicious. You do NOT need to bring bottled water. Feel free to take some wonderful tasting spring water home with you.

Large living room offers overstuffed couches to relax around the wood fireplace.

4-seasons studio overlooking the babbling creek is the perfect spot for Yoga, meditation, prayer, stretching, or reading.

Outside, enjoy the sunshine and fresh air on the large deck with steps down to the water you can fish off or soak your feet in. Enjoy 10 acres of hiking trails or just walk down the quiet dirt road.

In a society with ever-increasing screen time use, do you need some time to "unplug"?? Here, you will NOT be distracted from your friends and family with internet, wifi, or T.V. Music players are provided, bring your favorite play list. Cell phone coverage is spotty, but always available on the main road. ENJOY!!

Where you’ll be

Mesick, Michigan, United States

Friendly neighborhood on quiet dirt road. 3 miles off M37 in the Manistee Forest. The Seaton Creek is a babbling trout stream which runs through the back yard and empties into the Manistee River. Road ends at the Hodenplye dam where you will find a canoe put-in, fishing, and access to the beautiful Manistee River trail.

I've come to realize while working in healthcare that sometimes what we need most for our well-being is a break away from it all. I searched 2 years for the perfect retreat, and was delighted when I discovered this cozy home on 10 acres bordering the Manistee Forest with a babbling creek running through the back yard. I completed a total remodel of the home and grounds with a nature sanctuary as my vision. It brings me joy now to open the home to those needing a place to unplug, unwind, and re-connect with nature and each other. Since opening in 2012, it has been a huge success. People come feeling tired and stressed and leave feeling relaxed and re-charged. Reading the guest book about peoples experiences is always a delight. Taking the Retreat concept to another level, I now also offer 3-day All inclusive women's retreat for groups of 3-6 women wishing to get away together! Packages include organic homemade meals, yoga classes in the studio, massage, hiking, and even wine tours. It has been a blast! We all have so much fun and participants leave feeling happy and refreshed. This whole experience has been a transformation for all involved: the property, me, and it's renters!
