Upon arrival, we were immediately welcomed and made to feel at home. This unique property had all that we needed both inside and out for a relaxing escape and for reconnecting with the things that are truly important in life. Thanks to Betty and her family for devoting their lives to peace and for sharing their time and space with us. We hope to visit again!

Fun and cozy - truly home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My boys ages 8&11 and I really enjoyed staying at Llama Meadows Farm. Marty and Betty were warm, friendly, helpful and so welcoming. They went beyond for us. We loved Betty's homemade baked goods, sun tea, and fresh veggies right from the garden. We also loved the trampoline!

We definitely recommend staying here and enjoying its close proximity to all the beauty of Sleeping Bear Dunes and the surrounding area of lakes and quaint towns.

A Lovely Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The place was so tranquil, idyllic, and funky. Our apartment was impeccably kept up and had everything that we could have wanted: a well-outfitted kitchen, comfy beds, a giant screen to watch a movie at night, a fire pit, beautiful gardens, and fresh veggies! We loved how convenient it was to get to the nearby Frankfort, Crystal Lake, and to Sleeping Bear Dunes. We even got to follow up our great day of hiking and swimming by washing off in the outdoor shower. The hosts were super welcoming and generous: they showed us all around the farm and shared the delicious bounty with us. It made for an excellent vacation.

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed having Dory and her friends be Our Guests in our Studio Apartment for their Vacation. They were very friendly and a fun group to give a Farm Tour to. They were interested in the Gardens and hope to have their own some day. They also enjoyed seeing and learning about Llamas and picking and eating the fresh Organic Veggies from our Garden. Dory and her friends left the Studio nice and clean and were very Respectful during their stay here on our Farm. We had a great time talking with them and we are looking forward to hosting them again in the near future. They were a Wonderful Group to host ! 🙏�🏼�💝�😎�🌺�🌻�

Peaceful farm full of love

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the peace and quiet and loving atmosphere at the Llama Meadows Farm for 5 days while exploring the great bear dunes and all other beautiful nature in the area.

The kids especially loved the farm, Betty, Marty the dog the llamas, picking tomatoes and pears...

Thank you so much for this wonderful time!

We will be back:)

Truly Enjoyed Our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Llama Meadows Farm for 4 nights. The room was massive and I personally LOVED the calming decor that reminded me of my favorite yoga studio.

Marty and Betty could not have been nicer or more welcoming on our arrival or during our entire time with them. We felt like friends after our stay... and I hope that we see them again soon. We had a wonderful salad made from the garden waiting in our refrigerator along with many other snacks straight from their garden. Yummy after a long drive! The kitchen and bath was well appointed with whatever we needed. SO impressed that Marty and Betty built the building (and their adjacent home) themselves!

The studio had three pull-out couches, one of which we used as our bed for the stay. It had two mattress toppers that made it very comfy. Please be aware that there are stairs up to the studio and no air conditioning. It was not an issue for us and our two pups. The room had many windows which open that offer a wonderful cross breeze that keeps the lofty room cool.

A major highlight of our trip was learning about the llamas, garden, labyrinth, organic lifestyle and music on the farm. We came away wanting to know more... and researched more about Dances of Universal Peace on the way home.

I think that a traveler that would most enjoy a stay here would be those with an open-mind, a kind & easy going spirit and a bit of a sense of adventure. As I said in the first line, we loved it... and hope to return again! Hugs to Marty, Betty and Tazzy Bear!!!
