Great location for our trip along the westcoast of Michigan. We stayed one night with a pleasant water view of a lake qith a summer breeze. The shower was very much needed and welcomed. Clothesline was up and ready to dry our soaked items from the previous nights rain storms. The outhouse was clean and used very little. Lee even lent us a table and chairs for the night. We enjoyed the lack of bug bites and the owls at night.

We thought it would be a more private setting with separate and marked sites. We were camping in front of their garage and we’re on their driveway and we didn’t feel comfortable. They have a loft on top of the garage and they had guests also and didn’t feel any privacy. The pictures they have of the property are beautiful but misleading because it seems like you’ll have your own fire pit but you don’t.
The owner-husband was always doing something around the property and we would have liked to have a more private site.
The property itself and surroundings are beautiful. The host Lee was very hospitable and very nice.

Our stay was much better than expected! Lee is a phenomenal host. Fieldguide Farmhouse is an awesome old house in a beautiful setting. We stayed in our motorhome and in all our travels we did not have a better site and very private-overlooking the lake. Wonderful!

It was an isolated and a large camp site. Ideal for star gazing. Our host Lee was very welcoming. Would prefer choosing this site next time

Very professional, i recommend spending a day in bell aire and reserving a table at shorts brewery or renting kayaks on torch lake while you are here. The shower is a little sketchy but it's way better than nothing.

I'd like to start out by saying that we had a lovely time at this property, however, the listing was definitely misleading (and overpriced for what it was). The campsite area is only about 150 yards from the owners house, and is directly next to a shed that has an apartment above. The hosts were out of town, so this wasn't an issue for us, though I imagine it would not be private if they were home. There was a couple staying in the apartment above for one night, which was a little close for comfort. We also expected there to be water/beach access, but the water was across the street, with no where to access. It still made for a beautiful view, though!

THE PLUSES:

The firepit was PERFECT for cooking all of our meals over. There are iron grates that slide over the top which make it perfect to put a pan on or even cook directly on. Next to the firepit, there is a grove of trees that was perfect to hang 4 hammocks from. There was also a very clean porta-potty there for our use, along with an acceptable shower and running water in the basement of their house. We also found a beach with water access for our dogs on the other side of the lake (Gorham Beach).

Overall, this was a nice property, and would return for a lower rate, but the listing was a bit misleading
