The Potter's Guesthouse 6211 Michillinda at Lamos Road Whitehall, MI 49461
South of town 'in the country'
The Potter’s Guesthouse is located on the property of Terrestrial Forming Pottery Studio where Peter 'the Potter' Johnson has been creating art for over forty years.
The clean and comfortable, newly renovated two-story is a former 1800’s school house that was moved to this location in the early 1900's and joined to a farm house.
There are three fully furnished bedrooms, two up and one down; one full bath down and another up; a large fully equipped kitchen; a spacious living room; a breezeway with washer and dryer; and a deck with a charcoal grill. It will sleep six: two queens and two twins, all with quality mattresses. Linens are included as well as cable TV, wireless internet, microwave, and dishwasher, all the comforts of a home away from home.
There are acres of land to picnic or to take walks in the adjacent woods which lead you to Lake Michigan's white, sandy beaches and dunes. For a nominal fee, you can arrange time with the potter to work in the studio with clay.
This beautiful area of west Michigan has much to offer. Lake Michigan (Duck Lake State Park), White Lake, and Duck Lake are all less than one mile away. In addition, we are close to Michigan’s Adventure Park, bike trails (The Hart-Montague rails-to-trails paved path is now over 25 miles long.), White Lake Light Station (great walk from lighthouse to beach via the channel), art galleries, unique shops, a book store, yoga studio, candy shop, boating and fishing (free launch sites), canoeing, kayaking, dune rides, hiking and bird watching (Owassippi), free weekly outdoor concerts, numerous golf courses, antique stores, Howmet Theater, 1950's root beer drive-in, the state's oldest soda fountain, and the world's largest weathervane. (Or just relax under the shady maples or the millions of stars.)

About the owner: Peter is a full time potter, part time mountain biker, cross-country skier, and kayaker; Jan is a retired teacher and ceramic tile maker. “We both love the outdoors, the woods we live in, and the three lakes we can walk to.”
Why the Owner Chose Whitehall: This house is next to our pottery studio and near miles of beaches, bike trails, woods, rivers, close to towns but yet away from 'it all.' There is a small grocery store about half mile away so that we can provision without going far.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Duck Lake State Park is unique in that it does not provide camping but has beautiful sandy beaches and dunes. If we want excitement, we are close to Michigan's Adventure Park or bike trails and rivers.
