Our cute little home is set back far off the road, surrounded by trees and wildlife. It’s not unusual to see deer in the yard, blue heron in the pond, or our resident hummingbirds on the bee balm.
Great for colorful, cool fall days by the campfire. And your stack of summer books in the hammock. 📚 Heated tile floors, coffee, and snuggling while the snow falls outside ❄️

The space
Hi! We are Andrew, Maggy, and Fern. This is our home. It has changed and grown with us over the years and now we want to share it with you. Since I was a young girl, I’ve loved this house. My dad helped build it for our new neighbor back in 1995. I spent summer evenings here drinking half frozen vernors around the campfire and watching SciFi movies.

This place has been fortunate to be loved by a string of great people, which began with Kevin. An artist from New York City, who fell in love with this area and decided to build this little summer home. He spent nearly twenty years summering here, and wintering, when he just couldn’t take the busyness of the city. You’ll notice sculptures and some of his paintings peppered around the home and property. Our family came next. We transformed the home from the sweet little man cave it was into a place where our family could live and entertain comfortably, and warmly! (There was just a small wood stove when we bought the place!)

When our family moved on to the next phase of life, we were fortunate to find two fantastic farmers who loved the home and land while we couldn’t. They transformed the place into one that provides heathy food for so many more people. You’ll see these two farmers out growing in the field and hoophouse now, so please say hello. They are part of this story.

Now we welcome you into this little summer home’s story. Enjoy it. Love it even! Please leave it better than you found it. That is part of this little home’s legacy.

The home has tile floors in the downstairs, so it stays quite cool and comfortable during the summer. The floors are heated for cool fall days and cozy winter nights. Our family adores winter nights, snuggling down with hot chocolate and good books as the snow falls outside.

The upstairs is the sleeping area (with ac unit) with a queen bed on one end of the loft and a sofa bed on the other. We have a pack n’ play available, just let us know if you need it. There is also a balcony upstairs, great for stargazing or a morning coffee.

Our Little House is a great place to visit during any season. The summer we have lakes and beaches, ice cream you can walk to, and a garden for reading and campfires. Fall brings intense colors, cool evenings, more campfires, and hot coffee in the garden. Winter is our family favorite season - cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or even just hiking on our little trails or some of the local trails (Glacial Hills, Shanty Creek, North Street Trail), downhill skiing (Shanty Creek/Schuss Mountain, Boyne Mountain, Mt. McSauba), ice skating (local lakes, Mt. McSauba), snowmobiling, ice fishing, and early nights reading the stacks of books we’ve been meaning to get to, recovering from a busy summer.
Spring is about the flowers! Tulips, daffodils, lilacs, and getting excited cause we all know summer is just around the corner!

Where you’ll be

Central Lake, Michigan, United States

We’ve got the coolest farm around- veggies, cut flowers, chicks, and two handsome, tubby goats. We might be biased, but you can walk to the ice cream shop and library from where we are. It’s less than a mile to town, where you’ll find Mammoth Distillery for the adults and Fudgees ice cream for the kids!
Central Lake also has a great grocery store with just about everything you might need!
