Heritage Hills isn't called Heritage Hills for nothing! It's situated on 21 acres of what was the original Wawonowin Country Club, a 9-hole golf course that was built in the early 1800s and then closed in the mid 1960s. This area was boom town in those early days because the very spot where iron ore was discovered is within walking distance! You are free to explore by foot, bike or horse the whole 800 acres between Ishpeming and Negaunee (and further if you would like!) and expedience this diverse area of hardwoods, pines, meadows and some wetlands, too, to discover many historical spots of interest.
We can provide a map if you would like to explore on your own, or put together a special tour by wagon or horse to see top points of interest like Mathews Cross: a big steel cross mounted in a big rock about 600 some feet up, erected by historian Frank Mathews in honor of all the miners who died. You can walk around Union Park originally built for the Green Bay packer team (now the Packers) to play the Ishpeming/Negaunee football team but later a horse harness race track where Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Show performed! Explore areas of old mines, and where Iron ore was discovered: the Iron Ore Heritage trail is nearby, too. It's a 48 mile walking & biking trail with historical points and old shafts and pits along that way - it goes all the way to Lake Superior if you dare go that far!
Heritage Hills came to be 8 years ago as 'Heritage Hills Horseback Riding' where we did just that - lots of horseback riding with guided horseback rides for the public! We still do a few limited public trail rides and, of course, have horses and ponies on the property, but we do so much more:
* Wagon rides in summer & sleigh rides in winter.
* Horse camps for kids and adults every Friday in the summer.
* We are certified in the EAGALA model of equine assisted psychotherapy along with a learning technique with horses called Horse Powered Reading.

Came back 2 weeks later. Phenomenal place. Lots of open/wooded space to explore, and the biking is perfect for beginners. I’ll be back anytime the weather permits

Lovely spot. Great feel. Next to a bike trail network (so you may see some bikers). In early Nov, there are no bugs and good enough weather. Host gave some good recommendations on places to go (bike distance away) which were great.

This is my first stay, but it was a phenomenal location with many amenities. Bike and hiking paths were touching the property, so had easy access to them. Joni and Phil were so nice and have good recommendations and were knowledgeable about animal tracks/scat, etc

Hole 1 Fairway
Lovely open space. Great access to town and bike trails. Happy pup camper enjoyed her stay as well. No one else was there while we were but I imagine it’s quite a hopping place when there’s more folks around for biking. Would definitely come back!

I LOVE camping here!
I’ve stayed at The Homestead several times, and love it every time. The restroom and firewood are a great bonus, and serene scenery (with horses!) is a great way to wake up. Conveniently located near tons of great things to do!
