Every Stone Tells a story
Fieldguide Farmhouse is Accommodating Adventure Headquarters for outdoor enthusiasts of northwest lower Michigan. We provide simple luxury lodging accommodations and garden party vibes for events with guests ranging from 2 to 200. Fieldguide Farmhouse is a unique and stately 1910 four-square fieldstone farmhouse that is iconic in the area. We're humbled to serve as steward to this local landmark which is cherished by a long-line of owners, guests and the community. We welcome you and yours to our home to host your most memorable occasions!
The farmhouse sits atop six scenic acres overlooking Intermediate Lake, an all-sports lake, in Antrim County's upper Chain-of-Lakes. Our setting is secluded set back from a meandering county road bordered by hardwood forests and ever changing lake views. Enjoy the property's park-like landscape varying with wildflower meadows, tree groves, lawns and flower beds blooming with peonies, iris, bleeding heart, trillium, lilac, hasta, roses and ferns to name a few. Majestic trees such as Black Locust and cedar groves, larger than life Norway spruce, a mature Crimson King Maple, Silver Birch and Oaks surround the house. The property's diverse landscape is as intentional and stunning as each unique fieldstone that makes up the house.
Inside, a highly curated and current yet traditional and cozy design scheme decorates the house. Furnishings are a mix of family heirlooms, antiques or roadside finds (the best!) Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn and World Market pieces. Walls are adorned with my mother's artwork, friend's, collected pieces and an annually rotating in-house artist gallery.
Time spent here naturally calls for celebrating and we love hosting. Accommodating adventure for our guests on and off of the trail is our passion. Welcome, we're stoked you're here!
