Winter ready! This little rustic cottage is located on the front/east side of our property, near the big barn. It was originally farmhand housing and later workshop.

It is the perfect cozy, country cottage. There is a little refrigerator and an electric kettle. Unlike the campsites we offer, it is near the house and in the midst of animals and farm activity. There is complete privacy from 10pm -7am.

Don’t miss out on this!
Lovely place on a working farm with a lovely family. It was great to learn a bit about the farm and learn about how they care for their land. We thoroughly enjoyed all the animals and walked with the goats and Eva their canine protector for an hour; such personalities! The space itself is charming, everything you need and nothing you don’t. Warm, cozy, good snacks and entertainment right outside the window. We were at total and complete peace, a rarity coming from the city, we read ourselves to sleep. The goats being fed in the morning, head butting each other and competition from the dog was really funny. After such a comfortable night and slow morning it was hard to leave. Really nice people, helpful with starting and keeping our fire going as we fumbled a bit. Very communicative, attentive and I must make my way back there soon. Don’t wait just book it now.
Great little cottage, neat farm, and great hosts. The place is as described with all sorts of animals and rounds being made for farm chores. We enjoyed our stay and bought two bundles of wood from the kids for our camp fire. The farm is close enough to Ludington and Pentwater to easily run into either town if needed or for fun. There were a lot of apples on the trees still when we stayed so we got to do some U-pick while we were there and made apple sauce when we got home. We would certainly recommend a stay at the farm!
Our time at the Hibernian Farm was amazing. We went when it was pretty cold outside (low 40s-high 30s) & we were kept exceptionally warm in the cottage. The cottage itself is extremely well kept and there is a strong attention to detail. The cottage is within one of the goat pastures so it was awesome to wake up to see the goats eating. The host, Carey, was very attentive to our needs. If you’re concerned about keeping warm, trust me, you will be sweating with how hot the wood stove gets. The area of Michigan that the farm is located is also beautiful and has a lot of nice natural attractions.
This place was amazing and Carey and family were great hosts. The cabin is super cute and tidy. The goats, ducks, chickens and fluffy dogs were a great addition. Will def be coming back again!
A great place to live off grid but still have electricity and internet!
Cozy cottage farm retreat
We had a wonderful stay at Hibernian Farm and we were pleasantly surprised by our experience. Carey, Jason, and their family were incredibly warm, open, generous and hospitable as they opened up their farm for us to experience. The cottage was very cozy and charming and perfect for a weekend get away. We enjoyed lots of rest, hanging out with the goats, campfires, and peaceful evenings under the stars. We brought a solar shower for outdoors and a camp stove for a more “glamping” experience. Most of all, we enjoyed seeing a peek into their family farm life and walking the property of orchard. This is a wonderful option if you’re looking for a nourishing retreat.
Warm and cozy stay
We had a wonderful stay at Hibernian farm! Jason, Carey, and the whole family were super welcoming. It was great to hear about the history of the farm and the area. The little cottage is newly renovated and we stayed cozy warm with the wood stove. Carey and Jason are transitioning their apple orchards to organic and have U-pick available. Highly recommend!
The cottage was adorable and very sweetly decorated. The goats were adorable! The location was close to fun places to explore.
A few pieces of constructive feedback:
- Leave written instructions in the cottage regarding parking, hose/water location, etc. Note for guests that the dogs will bark, but not bother you. The first morning waking up, the large dogs were outside the fence and I was unsure if I could exit.
- List as semi-private. This is a working farm. Which is wonderful, but did limit some of the seclusion and quiet time.
- Put opaque curtains up. The sheers were beautiful, but with host family around the cottage doing farm chores, we felt a tad uncomfortable changing, snuggling, etc.
- Provide a first aid kit. We had a small boo-boo while crafting and needed a band aid.
All in all a beautiful stay and beautiful farm!
Relaxing cottage & gracious hosts
We enjoyed our wonderful 3-night stay and are already planning on returning next fall!
Carey and Jason were great and responsive - we arrived an hour later than expected, and the hosts were gracious and understanding. They even started a fire before our arrival to ensure the cottage was nice and cozy for us and provided some snacks and delicious apples from their orchard. Carey and Jason gave very explicit instructions for all of the amenities available and were responsive when we had questions.
The cottage was warm, cozy, and comfortable. It was so fun to see all the animals right outside the windows and so refreshing to get out of the city for a relaxing weekend. Easy driving distance to town and other attractions.
An amazing stay - would recommend this place to anyone looking for a rustic and relaxing getaway.
Unique and delightful pastoral stay
My husband and I wanted a quick getaway for the weekend, and were so happy to have found this gem! Carey, Jason, and her family were warm and welcoming– literally, in the sense that an hour before our arrival, Carey heated up the little cabin for our comfort.
The cabin itself is in a pasture with goats and one of their Livestock Guardians (beautiful, friendly dogs). It's decorated adorably and comfortably with an ethernet cord, eletric tea kettle, and small fridge. There's a wood burning stove that kept the cabin cozy during the chilly weekend.
The views of the farm are fantastic, and the animals just add to the idyllic, pastoral escape. There's a fire pit to the side of the cabin that you enjoy in the evenings as well.
Anytime we had a question about where to get water or how to use something, Carey, Jason, and their children were responsive and extremely helpful. Even though the cabin is close to the home and the barn, everyone was respectful of the space and privacy around the cabin.
We also went apple picking on their farm, which turned out to be a highlight of our trip! There's also a state park close by for hiking and a fantastic (!) winery nearby, called Oceana.
Such a lovely family and experience!
