The vibe at Secluded Urban Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This is a great place to stay if you want to visit Detroit. Easy access to the John C Lodge Frwy (Route 10) which goes to the Cultural Center Historic District where the museums are located and to downtown Detroit. We wanted to see more of the area so we drove on the surface roads instead.
The farm is shady, green, peaceful and somewhat isolated from the neighborhood streets. There's a little traffic noise from the freeway. Some streets in the surrounding area have empty lots and boarded up houses but on other streets, the houses are all occupied and well cared for.
The hosts are friendly and busy with the farm work. Most of the produce is already promised to customers who participate in a weekly food box program but we did buy some fresh zucchini and lettuce.
We have a 25' class C motorhome and Noah directed us to a nice parking spot under the trees. We didn't use any of the amenities except for the picnic tables and fresh water. Parking is limited so this is not a good place for large RVs.
Really impressed by this plot of land. In the center of the city, yet here is this magical slice of midwestern farmland. More private than I expected. Full of life: butterflies, birdlife, trees, wild grasses, rows of fresh vegetables, chickens. This is a special site. We just visited during the day, but I would love to come back and spent a night under the stars here.
We stayed at Noah's place for 1 night in our camper van and loved it. It's a well kept farm in the middle of a partially abandoned section of Detroit. The area surrounding the farm looks kinda rough but we felt totally safe. If you want to visit Detroit definitely consider this spot .
