Life's An Adventure
Howdy! Fieldguide Farmhouse is home to owner/operator Lee, her son Jack, friendly rescue pup Louie and feisty barn cat Daisy. Thanks to generous support by family and friends, Lee opened the doors to Fieldguide Farmhouse in December 2016 following a divorce as a stay at home mom. Lee grew up on fifty acres with dogs, horses and other pets playing in the woods and river in Athens, GA. She earned a Bachelor's of Science in Parks, Recreation & Tourism from Texas A&M University and a post-graduate diploma in Environment Society & Design from Lincoln University in Christchurch, New Zealand. Lee returned state-side determined to work in land conservation and moved to northern Michigan for an AmeriCorps position with Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy. In 2011 Lee joined Traverse Area Recreation & Transportation, Inc. as Trail Planning & Management Director. While working and pregnant she completed a full gut renovation designing her first home, an 1880's cottage in downtown Traverse City. In March of 2015, Lee discovered her dream house for sale and landed in lovely Central Lake. For a year she worked as Trail Manager for The Friends of Glacial Hills before operating Fieldguide Farmhouse full-time. The trail is winding yet beautiful and the adventure continues!
