Nate and Mary Calkins (and 3 year old Marcus) love living in the country on our sixth generation farm. Guests here are treated like family and we look forward to having you stay with us! Mary grew up on this farm and Mary and Nate recently moved back to the area and renovated existing structures into a Bed & Breakfast and a cottage. We wanted to share this amazing view and property with others! You will LOVE our peaceful little piece of heaven.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009
My family has stayed twice during this past year. Home Sweet Home! Clean, quiet and plenty of room to spread out our family. We had a mini family reunion in the Fall and were back in the Spring. We all set our alarm clocks so we could be up to watch the beautiful sunrise over Lake Michigan. In the Fall we were able to golf right in the back yard! The apples were there for the picking and were wonderful. Our walks along the lake will never be forgotten. Nate and Mary are there to make your stay as comfortable as they can. It really has a beautiful clean kitchen and plenty of bathrooms, plus a full size laundry room. The large front lawn was a great place to gather in lawn chairs and just enjoy the view. We will be back.
I have nothing but good things to say about the property. It was clean and had all the amenities that we needed. The photos were accurate describing the home. There was a happy, welcoming presense felt thoughtout our stay. Our grandchildren were with us and they especially loved the Rec Room downstairs. There was ample room for everyone and the place was very comfortable.
The owners were more than helpful and provided us with anything that we needed to make our stay more enjoyable.
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.
My family and I stayed at the cottage over the summer and it was a magical experience. The cottage was spotless, very roomy, and comfortable. The hospitality was top notch. The location with a stunning view of Lake Michigan cannot be beat. And the stars you can see on a clear night - millions! This is the perfect place to escape it all and enjoy some quality down time. Close enough to many distractions but far enough away to avoid them as needed. I highly recommend it!
