This property was once part of an 80 acre farm. It has now grown into a mature forest with deer, turkey, squirrels,chipmunks, many types of songbirds and most recently a family of sandhill cranes. . Sheila grew up just across the road and spent many hours riding her horse and writing poetry on the property. As a retired artist, we love to entertain creative peaceful people and many think of our place as a quiet sanctuary that encourages creativity. We provide games, both outdoor and indoor, a screen house, hammock, nature trails and a new camp store with local items and snacks. There is an Amish community close by and a tour map is provided. We are also close to the largest canopy walk in the US at Whiting Forest and Dow Gardens. Only 25 minutes away. There is a small water park in the closest town with a beach. Locally there is tubing and canoeing at the Cedar River in Gladwin and kayaking at Pinconning Park on Saginaw Bay.

Need a reprieve? This is it!
Amazing stay once again. For anyone second guessing this Hipcamp, don’t. Just book it and experience the adventure for yourself. Thank you for everything Shelia & Jeff. I can’t wait to return ❤️

Great place to go just to get away from everyday life. Very easy to find, wonderful woods with paths to see nature, God's creation.

Amazing relaxing spot!
Such an amazing place! The cabin itself was great, good space, comfortable bed and a lot of appliances. The land is great too, scenery is really nice, there’s nice short trails, and we saw some deers. It also isn’t too far away from grocery stores and restaurants. The hosts were also very nice and generous. 10/10 place, would definitely tell others about it and think about booking it again!

We really enjoyed camping at this property! The upkeep was excellent and had everything we needed without feeling like we were at a hotel. We were still in the woods and it was beautiful!
