Love Farm Wilds, LLC

3 sites · Tents200 acres · Crystal Downs Country Club, MI
Welcome to Love Farm Wilds in beautiful Benzie County. Share our native Michigan forest and enjoy low impact camping for enlivening rapport with nature and your own sweet self. I'm going to tell you a secret. Being a year round local in Benzie County is the best. We've got both sweet water, quartz sand summer beaches and dire, dark winters of the soul. The gentle beauty of the visitor season can turn fierce and menacing when the snow flies. The dancing waters sparkle with the delicious warmth of our local star and then... BAM! That same sun is cloud shrouded for literally 3 months. The contrast is a feature, not a bug. Coming through the dreary, dragging chill physically and mentally intact means we get to tune into the paradisaical seasons all the more. Benzie County is literally exploding with outdoor excellence, and thankfully not many people outside of the shire are aware of this. We aren't overrun with mavens of mediocrity quite yet, we aren't being priced out of our homes as often happens in other gorgeous places. We remain blissfully forgotten and undiscovered. You've gotta live here full time to really get it, but visiting is pretty sweet too! The delight will creep up on you, the weight of your cares will be lifted. You might get hints about the hidden places, hear rumors about spots that aren't conveniently situated by a parking lot. But for heaven's sake, don't stay, don't move here. Not unless poplar leaves spinning in the wind feels like an invitation, nor before cricket music starts shading towards language.

Michigan Paradise

5 sites · RVs, TentsTustin, MI
Dick and Maxine Alexa lived and worked in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In 1990, they found their dream home in the beautiful small town of Tustin, MI where they retired and became involved in their new community.  In 2009, Dick and Maxine were diagnosed with different types of lung cancer. Maxine passed in September 2010 and Dick followed in July 2011. Their only child, Marc, could not part with the property ... too many memories and the only thing he had left of his family. Eventually, we prepared to rent it out on Trip Adviser and Airbnb to help cover the costs of the mortgage. As people began renting and sharing their love and bewilderment with this wonder in the woods like Dick and Maxine once did, we knew we had to continue sharing this slice of paradise and, in some way, the legacy of Dick and Maxine now lives on in all the special, lifetime memories made here. Learn more about this land:Set up camp within the outside perimeter of the backyard, within sight of the fire pit and house, or wander farther out into the rolling hills to pitch a tent or utilize an old deer blind for a secluded and more rustic experience. There are two decks, a pond, a swingset and a propane grill where you can lounge, sunbath, cook or play. Turn on the hose in the secluded backyard to wash up or play in the water. 2.5 miles down a winding road that wraps around a lake, you will find an Amish store. Travel another mile and you'll find yourself in the quaint town of Tustin and the trailhead to the White Pine Trail.

Our cottage was originally built by two women who were a couple in 1965. The Burke family bought it in the mid-1970s and added on the Master Bedroom and Living Room. The Sheridan family purchased this magical property in 2013 and have lovingly maintained it since. While we had thoughts of rebuilding like many of our neighbors have, we chose to honor the past owners and improve it. We have doubled the deck size, replaced all windows and doors, and put wood ceilings with ceiling fans in all bedrooms and the bathroom, a significant improvement over the old drop ceilings.
