Check in and get ready to relax!  This gorgeous courtyard guest room is nestled in a courtyard garden between an art studio and architecturally beautiful house of contemporary Japanese design influence.  The garden has pathways and lots of flowers and stonework.  The art studio is open for viewing and use by guests as is the house.  The library is one of a kind!  The kitchen is beautiful and the house is full of artwork.  Each room is private and there are two shared bathrooms in the courtyard.  Each bathroom comes with a very nice tiled hot shower, towels and soap/shampoo.  The whole property is one garden after another and is surrounded by the Manistee National Forest.  It's stunning here every season of the year.  Guests will have full privacy in their rooms.  Most of the rest of the spaces are shared, but the grounds and home are expansive and offer lots of private areas.

My husband and I (and the pup) wanted to get away from the city. We only took a day, but it was perfect enough that we're already planning a week next year! The grounds are gorgeous, and walking through the library and Rob's art studio is a wonderful experience. 10/10

What a relaxing and unique stay with Robert. The room was separate from the main house by a few steps, but everything was open for us to use within the house including the kitchen/lounge area/etc. We were able to do some work there using the Wi-Fi, which was very convenient. The house is beautiful and amazing and the trail on the property is picturesque and simple to follow. We had a lovely weekend retreat!

The entrance road to the place can be a little scary but if you follow the directions the host gives its not confusing at all. Once u reach there I promise you won’t believe ur eyes. The place it so beautiful and it accommodates everything u would like to do. The host is very friendly and welcoming too. 10/10 would recommend anyone and everyone that can to go stay there!

This place is amazing. If you're looking for somewhere to unwind and be close to nature this is it.

If you are the type who likes to look for inspiration in nature and in the actions of other people, you'll find it here. Being able to see an artist's vision come to life on 20 acres of pristine forest will inspire you!

Rob and his staff are very personable and accommodating. The shared spaces are amazing. Thank you to Rob, Cat, and Cooper for giving me two days of solid rest and more kind memories to add to an amazing home state adventure.

If you do camp here, hit the hiking trails, SLOW DOWN, find somewhere to sit, and take a moment or two to be as quiet as you can. I took a seat in a cathdral of tall trees next to a stream surrounded by gigantic ferns. After being quiet for 5 minutes realized i had a front row seat to a symphony filled with birdsong, a breeze in the branches and bows above me, and gentle water making it's way down the hill in a small stream i just hiked up.

5 minutes...

There is the magic of miracles all around us, always. But some places seem to show them to us in ways that make us pause and realize how lucky we are to be there, to be one of them, and to be at one with them.

Camp here, look around, be inspired.

Heaven on Earth! This is a place of spectacular beauty and Serenity. Robert and his crew were wonderful hosts, and I grew to love them In a short time period. A couple of days in Roberts paradise is highly recommended especially during these times. I already miss them and can't wait to go back!!
