Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Next to a cherry orchard, this 1900s farmhouse sits on 20 rolling acres in the heart of the Leelanau Peninsula, close to the famously beautiful beaches, small towns and outdoor activities. Idyllic, sprawling outdoor space in convenient location.

The space
Adjacent to a magnificent cherry orchard and surrounded by herb and flower gardens, this historic country farmhouse is central to the Leelanau Peninsula's vast and legendary vacation offerings -- beaches, towns, farmer's markets, farms, kayaking, hiking. On 20 rolling acres, the five-bedroom farmhouse, with three separate, well-designed and supremely comfortable living areas, is a haven for families or friends looking for a relaxing, rural and unplugged home base, quietly tucked away from it all. Dine under 100-year-old trees, take a nap in the hammock, or spend all evening in one of the many rocking chairs lining the wrap-around front porch with views that stretch across farmland, orchard and tall meadow grasses.

With so much space to run, play, roam, explore, pick apples, build fairy houses, climb trees, catch fireflies, this magical country spot is a dream for families with children -- well-tested by my very own.

Downtown Suttons Bay is just five minutes away, and Tandem Ciders and the Nine Bean Rows Bakery are also within a five-minute drive. There are beautiful many beaches within 10-15 minutes, as well as restaurants, wineries, trails, and I'm happy to share our favorites.

BEDROOMS //

1 // There is a downstairs master bedroom with a king bed and an adjoining bathroom with shower.

2 // Queen bed with soft, heavy sheets and a vintage bedspread, a wool blanket from a Michigan sheep farm, and the most lovely light.

3 // Twin beds with down comforters, organic sheets and handmade quilts from Fait La Force. Extra room for playing and reading. Magnificent views of the fields.

4 + 5 // Queen bed suite with an adjoining, separate bedroom with two additional twin beds. Organic, comfortable linens.

KITCHEN //

Simple, well-stocked kitchen with sharp knives, plenty of dinnerware, cloth napkins, and pots and pans. The window view over the farmhouse sink is glorious.

WRAP-AROUND FRONT PORCH //
In authentic farmhouse spirit, the spacious wrap-around front porch is filled with rocking chairs, wicker furniture and a porch swing.

OUTDOORS //
Birch woods, fruit trees, neighboring cherry orchards, great foraging and a help-yourself kitchen garden. Tree swing, rolling hills, tall grasses, wildflowers. Vegetable and herb gardens. There's an outdoor table, grill and seating area within close proximity to the kitchen door, under a canopy of trees.

LIBRARY //
The library is full of books dedicated to gardening, poetry, handcraft and fiction. There's also a magical selection of children's books. You are welcome to read books while you are there, but please leave them for everyone to enjoy.

GROUPS //
Weddings are not permitted.

Guest access
There are three outbuildings. Two of the barns are not available for use currently, but please ask about booking the tiny, rustic guesthouse that sleeps two in addition to the house.

Suttons Bay, Michigan, United States

My husband and I (and now, our three children) have been visiting the Leelanau Peninsula every season for nearly a decade. I have also written about the area for Martha Stewart Living and would be happy to share my regular haunts, from favorite farmstands and farmer's markets to the best croissants and locally-made hard apple cider in town.

Excerpt: "On the Leelanau Peninsula -- a 30-mile spit of land jutting northeast into Lake Michigan -- the days feel longer, the fish tastes fresher, and the food lovers are still blessedly unpretentious.

The white-sand beaches of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore are legendary, featuring powdery dunes, some more than 200 feet high."
