While running a successful B&B in downtown Ludington www.inn-ludington.com we embarked on rekindling old farmer passions and started up with Alpaca and many different Fiber/wool producing animals. It has become what we call 'A roaming Norman Rockwell Picture'

We chose Windswept Farms because of its short minimum required stay and relatively low price contrasted with the lake/town listings. We had 8 occupants in 4 bedrooms, cutting our $/night/person to a manageable level. The owners are nice, reasonable, and understanding. The facilities are good enough overall and should satisfy all except those needing pampering; remember this is a sturdy, converted farmhouse. I imagine the owners put a lot of investment and effort into making it prettier, and it works on most levels. The house was true to its depiction in the ad.

We enjoyed visiting the livestock, particularly the alpacas. The people who maintain the house and farm do their best to be inconspicuous and will be hospitable if you converse with them; they did not get in our way but will be around at some point in the day or even at night because the animals need care. We used this house as a base to foray into nearby towns and beaches, appreciating how it was quiet upon our return; nothing seemed too far away and the roads were direct & speedy enough. You should use your map or electronic navigation until you learn the landmarks; however the roads are on a grid so you can memorize them quickly.

Some tips: be careful with the window AC units b/c only the window itself holds the AC units in place, so only handle the window w/o the AC unit. Although we were there in a relative heat wave, the downstairs bedroom could keep very cool w/ the AC and the upstairs units did alright. We did have to economize if all 3 upstairs units were running and avoid using lights so we would not overload the circuit for upstairs. You would do well to usually leave the windows open to ventilate unless it's really hot, which seems to be hit & miss in this part of MI. In fact, you may as well open the windows and not bother locking the door as it's unlikely anyone will bother your things here.

This is a breezy part of MI as you will see by the prevalent, tall wind turbines owned by the Electric Utility. They are quiet and a fascinating feature of the landscape even though a little startling at first. I learned to enjoy them over time and how they shifted to catch the wind direction. You will see many surrounding the area as you stay here and drive around; we counted somewhere in the 30s in number in the nearby countryside.

We spent 1 night at Windswept farm and wish we had spent longer! It was a wonderful experience for the whole family. The kids loved interacting with the animals. We are already planning a longer stay for next year.
