Location Details

Of course, a trip to Fife Lake is not complete without a day on the water! Enjoy swimming, jet skiing, boating, and more on Fife Lake just 11 miles away. If fishing is your sport, bring the bait and tackle to catch some crappie, bass, pike, or walleye.

Home to dozens of trout fishing competitions and festivals throughout the summer season, including the National Trout Festival in Kalkaska, this area is truly ideal for fisherman of all ages!

If you prefer a more leisurely day on the water, head over to Manistee River for a calm kayak ride or kick back on an inner tube to float down the river.

When you're ready for a day in the city, drive up to Traverse City to sunbathe at the beach, tour wineries and microbreweries, hike Sleeping Bear Dunes, or just enjoy the local shops and restaurants that make up this lively town!

  • Comfy and clean farmhouse


    We enjoyed this little farmhouse. The hosts are so sweet. We were welcomed with a loaf of banana bread on the counter and they had water bottles and a few selections of drinks in the fridge and snacks in the cupboard. The house was clean and the beds and furniture were comfortable. We would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

  • Sweet farm house


    The home was clean, modern and ver comfortable. Modern appliancesbut very homey oldschool vibe. It was just as if it were my home. In the morning there were deer in the very large grassy back yard. Easy access to local cities. Very nice place. I was alone, but the house could easily have handled 3 or 4.

  • Cute and Cozy Farmhouse!


    Overall we were very happy and satisfied with this little farmhouse. We have stayed at many vacation homes and this was one of our favorites. You can really tell the owners enjoy hosting people and that it’s not only a business to them. Here are some things we loved about the home: first of all we really enjoyed the delicious fresh zucchini bread that welcomed us right when we walked in. Also, the home was very clean and well stocked with snacks, drinks, plenty of toiletries and paper products for our week long stay. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you would need to cook/bake. The appliances were new and very nice which made cooking very easy. The living room furniture was extremely comfortable and the overall lay out of the home was perfect for our family of three with a 4 year old. We also loved seeing all the farm animals and even took advantage of the beautiful red barn to take some family photos. We definitely will be back and would highly recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a “home away from home” for their next Michigan vacation!

  • Perfect Weekend Getaway


    This was exactly what our family needed for the new year. Perfect secluded location yet close to Traverse City. Clean and well stocked little farmhouse. We enjoyed the homemade treats upon arrival and the flexibility with times. The farm yard walks and animal viewing were a bonus. The owner even arranged for us to have ESPN on the tv so we didn’t miss the big game. All around, completely satisfied. Thank you so much!
