Our family property has been exclusive for 45 years. No Weddings or Special Events Allowed. We have fully remodeled the main house, but left some original pieces for country charm. The guest house was added 10 years ago. Please note: the airbnb calendar is the most up-to-date.
Our country compound is a private friends & family retreat, not a “proper" resort. We are carrying on the proud 50-plus year history of reconnecting people to the simple pleasures of simple times in a no-frills, recreational country setting.
Remember, you're not just renting beautiful lodging, you'll also have access to the grounds, private beach, woods, private spaces like a backwoods tree house, campfire pit, sports courts, boats, canoes, smokers, grills, etc.
Again, we are not a "proper" resort, so if you require an immediate response, lots of hand-holding and attention to detail, then this just might not be the best fit for you. OK, you've been warned : ) Thanks.

Bring an empty cooler and fill it up to rest on the sundeck or beach. Bring your food and booze for appetites and budgets of all sizes.

Again, this is not a "proper" resort, it is a private, friends-and-family retreat that is making the true country available on a very limited basis. All guests will be asked to sign a release of liability. Maximum number of guests must be agreed upon before booking.

We are a family of six living in Northbrook, IL.The Michigan property has been in our family for over 45 years as it was purchased by my grandfather for his family to enjoy. Currently, my mother and uncle are sole property owners of the more than 100 acres in Robinson Township. I am an engineer and my husband is an architect and we reside in the north suburbs of Chicago. We love to vacation in Michigan and the drive is about 3 hours from downtown Chicago.
