Michigan Backwoods Retreat on Lake

12 guests - 3 bedrooms - 2.5 baths

About this space

Enjoy a peaceful setting nearby Lake Michigan’s beaches with room enough for your family & friends! Located in Hartford, MI, our farmhouse is settled on Duck Lake, a private lake and one of the best places to fish in the area. The farmhouse has been spruced up and remodeled for ultimate comfort. Great for retreats, family vacation, bachelor/bachelorette parties, or small business conferences. Pets and service animals are welcome; 2-dog maximum for pets. The space is 2,041 square ft.

The space

Each bedroom sleeps 4 in beds; 1 queen bed and bunkbed including trundle bed in the Master Bedroom, and 1 full bed & twin bunkbeds including trundles in the upstairs bedrooms.

Our space offers a unique getaway experience; Hartford, Michigan is a rural area with room to camp, hike, hunt, and fish (if you are interested in hunting, please make sure you have a proper license to do so and let us know ahead of time).

Close by, you will find our family farm on 110 acres where we humanely and organically raise our animals and make old-fashioned pure maple syrup. If you are interested in learning more about or experiencing our farm, we invite you to visit during your stay at our space!

Year-round say hello to our farm animals - oxen & chickens, pigs, and starting in 2025, Katahdin sheep! In February & March, we invite you to join us in tapping trees and collecting sap for maple syrup-making. In wintertime, we allow our guests to use our snowshoes and enjoy ice fishing on Duck Lake. In the summers, in addition to access to Duck Lake, you will love driving to Lake Michigan’s beaches and enjoying the sun and the sand. Or stay in the area to fish and in the evenings, make s’mores in the private fire pit just outside your space. There are many local wineries in the area as well, so our space is great for a bachelorette or bachelor event.

We allow our guests to use our watercrafts; paddle-boat, kayak, & paddle-board. We also have bicycles that guests are allowed to use during their stay.
