About the Property

Rural restored historic farm on 32 acres close to Lk MI and resort towns

Enjoy the restored 1890s Fernwood Farm Estate, a solar powered sustainable farm and working artist pottery studio, situated on 32 acres. Newly listed, our cute 500 sq ft one bedroom living space/apartment which was originally the farmhands quarters is now available to stay without the work (unless you really want to help pull weeds in the garden). Enjoy unwinding during your vacation at a rural farmcation & artcation location!

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom suite sleeps up to 3-4 people(1 full size bed, one pull out couch) includes a fully equipped kitchen, a bar-b-que, fire pit, farm fresh eggs and a place to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can cook your own breakfast, or enjoy one free complimentary meal at our in-town locations Root Cafe' & Coffeehouse & Fernwood 1891 art gallery in downtown Fennville. Then spend the afternoon reading a book on the wrap around porch, in the hammock or sit under a tree and enjoy watching the animals in the pasture.

The suite has its own entrance and is completely separate from the rest of the house. Living room is on main level, bedroom, bath and kitchen is on upper level.

Pottery studio time available to rent for experienced potters (contact owner to discuss details/availability), and groups of 4 or more may schedule a one-time wheel throwing pottery experience @ Khnemu Studio "play with clay" contact owner for details.


If you decide to venture out, you will love the wineries, u-pick farms, restaurants, pubs, art galleries, museums, summer & winter festivals in the nearby towns of Douglas, Saugatuck and South Haven, or go hiking up Mt. Baldy! (We include more information in our welcome package, and would be happy to answer any other questions, if we can!) We are located 3 miles from Lake Michigan, and 15 Minutes from either Saugatuck or South Haven. A rural country retreat with so much to do within a short distance.

For all you beer lovers, West Michigan features many award winning micro-breweries, all within a short distance.

Please come visit, and make Fernwood Farm your Home away from Home!
