Located adjacent to an established landmark: The Barn Antiques; this classic red farmhouse has often been envied from afar but is now being shared with guests.
The sprawling property served as a high point lookout over Lake Michigan and Silver Lake during the Civil War and includes a delicious tangle of fresh berries every summer which earned it the local title of "Blackberry Hill". It is a short 10 minute walk to Silver Lake with its beautiful sand dunes; two miles from Lake Michigan’s Little Pointe Sable lighthouse and Lake Michigan beach; and close to the first Michigan Rail Trail bike path, wineries and farm markets.
Silver Lake camping area, dune buggy trails, and lake recreation are just 10 minutes away but guests will be able to enjoy only the sounds of nature in this restful escape above the lakes.

I am full time employed working with older adults in Oceana County. I also have an antique business on my property in an old barn that was built in the 1860's. I enjoy entertaining, traveling and being with my family. Other interests are kayaking, biking, hiking, decorating, taking care of a small flock of chickens and my dog, Sitka. I grew up in Lansing, Michigan, lived in Grand Rapids for several years before spending 18 years in the city of Chicago. I moved back to Michigan and bought my farm in 1996 and have loved living in the country near Lake Michigan and its beautiful beaches every since. I have traveled to over 29 countries and find travel and exploration to other parts of the world a passion that I hope I can continue for many years to come.
