I am self employed spending time between my home in Michigan and NYC or a beach somewhere. Often times I am found at a restaurant checking out the local fare. Enjoyment comes from cycling, boating, cooking, sunday brunch, traveling and great friends.

Improving daily!

Sean Karcher purchased this farmhouse in 2006

This home really feels like home, very comfortable, quiet, and relaxing. The rolling fields surrounding the house feature tall prairie grass and not a neighboring house in site.

Every window has views of rolling hills, trees and native grass. Step outside and enjoy views of the lakes and islands.

HIP PASTORAL IDYLL

  • 5 of 5
I loved this place so much the first time that I stayed again! This farmhouse has been reinterpreted to highlight clean lines and simple materials. The furnishings are thoughtfully curated and the decor warmly showcase the owner's eclectic interests and impeccable taste. The outdoor spaces around there house are fantastic, too. Sitting and listening to the breeze blowing through the surrounding fields is food for the soul. It's the perfect spot to get away from it all in style, yet easily get to all the great wineries, restaurants and beaches in the area.

MAGICAL

  • 5 of 5
My Friends and I stayed at Sean's magical farm house in October while attending a friends wedding. First off the location is perfect, 15 or less to wineries, Leland, Suttans Bay and great restaurants. Sleeping Bear Dunes and Leelanau State Park are also a short drive.

The farm......this place is really special and so lovingly put together. All of the views from the windows are like Andrew Wyeth paintings. The furnishings are tastefully eclectic and will satisfy the urbanite and the chronic pinterest poster ;). Really nice sheets and towels to compliment the comfortable bed and bathrooms. Loved the claw foot tub!

The outdoor area is really cool with the large table and even larger fireplace. My friends and I are avid fire people and we were so looking forward to hanging out near the fire, so much so that we did it in a down pour as it was a rainy weekend. So worth it!

If you are a foodie or an average cook you will be delighted with the kitchen, it has everything. Also lets not forget Sean's generosity with his garden and fresh eggs...the icing
to a perfect stay.

This is the type of place that makes memories, we are still talking about it and hoping to make it back again.

Thanks Sean, you nailed it!

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time at Sean's farmhouse. Its a gorgeous old farmhouse that has been redone with all the modern amenities and great decor. Great location, peaceful and secluded yet a short drive to the beach/town. Kitchen had everything you could possibly need and a nice garden outside to pick fresh herbs/veggies. Doesn't get much better!

BEAUTIFUL MAGICAL PIECE OF NORTHERN MI

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this house for Thanksgiving 2013 -- so we were myself and my boyfriend, another couple, and my parents. The house was the perfect size. It is beautiful, extremely clean, and contains everything one would need for a magical vacation. One important thing: the temperature in the house was always great! I believe it's radiant heating through the floors ..? so the heat is silent and highly functional. The host is very very kind, super accessible, and had great recommendations for places to visit in the area (we really liked Fischers Happy Hour and also loved loved Tandem Ciders). I would recommend this home to everyone I know regardless of age/interests/location, and I can't wait to visit in the summer!

STUNNING MODERN FARMHOUSE.

  • 5 of 5
Sean has created an amazing home. The farmhouse has everything you need, and nothing more. As a designer, I really appreciate the restrained, sophisticated design of the interiors. There is also a beautiful outdoor space behind the farmhouse, with stunning views. It is an extremely peaceful, relaxing place we plan to return to.
