Our guest house is in close proximity to our home. We have build these houses over the last 20 years. The house rented is a three story rustic house with lots of light and windows. Most of the interior is wood. There are many stairs and we suggest children visiting be at least 5 years of age. A dog should be physically able to climb stairs also.
We are a middle-aged couple of artists/teacher. Norm is an astronomer (run's the observatory at Leelanau School where he works) he will help your family identify constellations when you sit around the bonfire. Mimi (who is Danish) is a chocolatier and owns a small nearby chocolate business. Our children are grown and have moved away and occasionally will visit. We have a quiet and very friendly 'princess cat' on the premises. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is next to our 40 acre property, and Lake Michigan and Glen Lake are only minutes away.
