"The Lavender Loft was such a nice surprise! Spent 2 nights here while playing golf at Forest Dunes. FORTUNATELY they could not accommodate us and we discovered this wonderful place! Hard to believe such a modern, comfortable place is hidden right across the street. We look forward to returning during the same time next year!!"

The Space

The Lavender Loft is comfortable, unconventional, and distinctive. It does not pretend to be a five-star hotel. Instead, it’s infinitely better…

Wake up and enjoy your morning coffee observing the elegant view of the woodland pines through the double story void.

Inside you move freely and quickly from room to room of this small home. With the living, kitchen, and bathroom located on the main floor. While both bedrooms are situated on the second story loft allowing peaceful and isolated sleeping arrangements.

This isn’t a mansion. It’s smaller, reflects modern simplicity, and built with eco-friendly materials to provide an environmentally sustainable footprint.

This property is the perfect place for families, couples, or friends looking to unwind and recharge.

Guest Access

While there are almost no options for cabs, Uber or Lyft rides, once you are here you’ll find that the best places to visit you do on foot, in a boat, or on your favorite wheeled (or tracked) vehicle.

Other Things to Note

This off-grid, sustainable beauty lies in the heart of the Huron-Mantisee National Forest. There is more to do here than you could do in a month, so come stay a while and enjoy everything the great outdoors (and this spectacular little home) has to offer.

~3.5 miles away from the South Branch of the legendary Au Sable river. These ‘holy waters’ are a favorite destination for canoers and anglers alike.

If you were a crow, you could fly directly East and in a half mile land in one of the best, most beautiful golf courses in North America. Forest Dunes, recently having its Loop course rated as the #83 best in the world, provides a nice, elegant, and upscale retreat from the otherwise pristine woods.

Unlike most parts of the country, much of the area here is State or Federal lands. You can very literally leave this home, jump on the trails and go East to Lake Huron, West to Lake Michigan, or head North to Cheboygan or Petosky and never touch private property. It is a hiker’s, snowmobiler’s, off-roader’s or cross country skier’s paradise.

Hartwick Pines State Park is a beautiful destination that shows what the land in Michigan would look like if it was never lumbered. Head to this historic site and go back in time while enjoying the land that time (or at least the lumberers) forgot.

Lakes, rivers, nearly 2M acres of both State and National Forests – if you love the outdoors, or just want to get away from the crush of the city or suburban life, this is the place for you.
