Debbie and Alan Piel
About Debbie and Alan Piel
My husband and I love the Upper Peninsula. I've lived here my entire life and my husband has been here for over 35 years. We love to hike, bike, ski, and just generally enjoy being outside no matter what the season. We love to meet new people and share our home. We invite you to join us in the great Northwoods for a truly peaceful vacation.
Debbie and Alan Piel purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 2000
Why Debbie and Alan Piel chose Watersmeet
We knew this was "our place" the moment we walked back to the property. We purchased it and began construction on our home the following year. We love the peace and serenity of this beautiful little lake and knew this was where we wanted to live for the rest of our lives.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
When we sold our business and previous home we weren't sure what we wanted to do. We tried to move to the west coast but the Northwoods kept calling to us. We came home, built this house, and knew we would never leave. Our guests all seem to have the same love of the peace and quiet that surrounds our home. In the summer you can walk our gardens and walking trails, sit in the screened porch overlooking the lake, or take the kayaks out to see all the water fowl and otters that visit us daily. In the winter, you can cozy up tin front of the fire that's always in the fireplace, read a good book, and snowshoe or ski right out our front door to the 7 miles of groomed trails in the Ottawa.

Beautiful stay with fantastic owners
Debbie and Alan are the perfect finishing touch on a beautiful property. From the welcome on our arrival through wonderful conversations over our stay, they made us feel like long-lost friends. The property itself is beautiful, comfortable, and clean: a true north woods paradise. We highly recommend staying with Debbie and Alan!
Thanks so much to you and Patty, Mike! We couldn't have enjoyed our time with you more and so hope our paths cross again someday!

Labor Day Retreat
Great hospitality, comfortable room, delicious breakfast. The hosts are a pleasant couple and the surrounding nature speaks for itself.
As we drove away, my wife said, “That was the most peaceful place I have ever stayed. I wish we could have stayed longer”
If you’re considering this as a destination, I highly recommend it!
Thank you so much, Sam. We enjoyed meeting you and Andrea. We wish you could have stayed longer, too! We hope to see you again someday. Best wishes to you both as you begin your lives together!!!
The place is heavenly. So peaceful, beautiful setting, and the best hosts!
We couldn't have been happier staying here. The food, the environment, and the hosts were exceptional! This was by far the best B and B we have ever stayed at. We loved every minute and plan to return. Thank you to Deb and Alan, we felt like family and we were very comfortable, just like home!
We feel exactly the same way, Steph! Thanks to you and Bob for brightening our week! You arrived as strangers and left as family. We can't wait for your return!
