Centrally located to what all of Southwest Michigan has to offer. Located in the beer, wine and agri tourism epicenter Village of Baroda. Only minutes from the best beaches and State parks in Michigan!

The space
Located 90 miles from Chicago, Skyway provides a unique vacation experience. Mid-Century Industrial Farm Chic style, located in a turn of the century tin ceiling clad bakery, turned candy store, turned creative live / work space with a recording studio - Skyway offers a stay like no other.

Bicycling, Beaches, Wineries, Breweries, Distilleries and fantastic restaurants all within close proximity - or stay in for the night, and prepare your own meal from one of the many roadside produce stands or grass fed farms in the area.

Skyway isn't for everyone. You either want a traditional vacation home in Harbor Country, or you're looking for something a little out of the ordinary and off the beaten path. Located on a dead end main street, cars drive by on the vintage brick pavers. Residents and visitors walk by on evening strolls. Curious passersby stare down the modern facade with inquisitive looks. Secluded on acres of land it is not, but hey - we love it, and think you will too.

You'll find inspiration amongst Skyway's large open floor plan living space with original maple flooring. The sunlight obtained from floor to ceiling windows truly inspires, while the acid etched glass provides complete privacy. Bring your creative projects that never seem to get done. Do something for yourself - something you love.

Skyway has been home to many diverse businesses over the years. At the turn of the century, after a devastating fire to the Village of Baroda, Ray Stover built the existing building, which was the general store of the era - farm implements were sold out of the back room. After Stover's demise, Ess Swope ran Ziegert's Bakery in the space through the 20's. The building then changed hands many times - Gus Nelson had the store for a short period. It's rumored the pot belly stove was the unofficial village hall - where men discussed politics and more than likely dreamed up the secession from Lake Township. The last great business was Emil Tollas's Red and White store - aka Tollas Brothers Grocery. Movies were played on the side of the building for the village's citizens until an addition to the store was erected out of bricks salvaged from the school explosion of 1946. After the economic collapse of Southwest Michigan, the space was occupied by an antique collector, until the current owner's purchase in 2004. 8 years of blood, sweat, tears and elbow grease turned this vintage building into what it is today.

The main bedroom, which is located inside the drum recording room of the recording studio, contains a queen size murphy bed (don't worry, it's a real mattress / bed) with high quality linens and pillows. Being that it's a recording studio space, it's quiet. Very quiet.

The kitchen contains a medium size refrigerator and freezer for your convenience, along with ample counter space and an apartment-size electric range.
