This Little House has a remarkably BIG presence, designed to take advantage of the private views of forests and meadow. It has a roomy loft with plenty of headroom and a queen sized genuine Temper-pedic mattress. The bathroom has a full sized tile shower. Kitchen is supplied with fridge, convection oven, electric tea kettle, French Press. The living room has comfortable seating stocked with books and games. A small table seats two for dining. There is a smart TV with ROKU and Netflix
The Little House sits high on a knoll overlooking a 4 acre meadow and lots of forest. It is nested between shade trees. My home and another cabin are on the property. Sharing 8 acres, gives all three residences privacy and a sense of the wild, while still being just 1/4 mile from M22 the main highway to all of the area's attractions. The bedroom is more spacious than most Tiny Houses but it is in a loft, so families with children need to take safety into account.
There is parking next to Little House, but it may not be navigable in winter so a hike of about 300 feet from the plowed parking space will be necessary.
PLEASE NOTE: I do allow dogs in my rentals. I clean extra well after canine guests and supply a cover sheet and separate towels for the canines. But I cannot remove every trace so if you are very sensitive this may not be the place for you. I also open all windows to air the house out between all guests and for those with pollen allergies, this could be an issue. My dogs' yard is about 100 feet from the Little House. They are fenced in and will bark a few times to greet you (or if they see the deer, turkeys or squirrels), but are fenced in and should not disturb you. Please do not allow your dogs to approach the fence, it instigates friendly barking which many bother my neighbors.
Although we are situated in conservative Northern Michigan, please know that I do welcome ALL guests, no matter the culture, gender or ethnic origin.
This is a safe place for all. Peace and Love.

Interaction with guests
I am always available for anything you need. I live about 200 feet from the Little House. I can be reached by phone or text if you need anything. If you have trouble with our driveway in winter, I can help you. It is a bit of a challenge. We keep it plowed and experienced winter drivers have no problems. But city folks can sometimes use a hand. Don't be afraid to ask. And please ask if you need any amenities like extra kitchen supplies. Because the house is small, I keep those to a minimum but am happy to lend anything you might need (such as a hair drier, iron, blender, pots and pans, more linens )
Other things to note
Remember that this is a Little House, I have tried to include as many full sized options such as a full shower and a real toilet (not a compost bucket), a queen mattress and soft seating. But the water heater is only 15 gallons so showers will be short, with a wait time between. It uses a holding tank. There is only a small closet for storage. The smart TV is visible from the loft bed but our intent speeds are irregular, so be patient. The kitchen has a counter top convection toaster oven, one hotplate, an electric teakettle and a mini fridge/freezer. There is a deck for extra living space. I proved snow shoes in winter and you are fee to take them on the many trails our county has to offer.
