Our hosts Lee was absolutely the best! One of the kindest people we've met in our travels while in Michigan. She went above and beyond, making sure we had everything we needed for a good night of camping. Even left a few goodies for us in the cooler for when we arrived. The property itself is absolutely gorgeous with stunning views of the lake. There's tons to do around here.

This review is coming late but can't stop thinking about this great camping spot in Northern Michigan. My family has been back since we stayed. Lovely hosts and incredible spot underneath the trees.

The Fieldguide Farmhouse is a great camping location! It was my wife's first time camping and she was nervous about being away from "amenities", so Lee's place was a perfect introductory step with access to a bathroom and shower. The property is expansive, so there's always privacy, with some beautiful views of the lake.
Lee also provided some great local knowledge and tips for dog-friendly places!

We had a wonderful stay at Fieldguide Farmhouse! The site is beautiful and is right across the street from the lake. There are trees for hammocks and a fire pit with ample firewood provided. Lee is such a great host and gave us clear instructions and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. We ran out of blankets so she even lent us some. We will definitely be back! Their two adorable dogs kept our pup Luna company almost the whole time and Luna didn’t want to leave :) We will definitely be back the next time we’re in the area. Thank you for having us Lee!

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
