Weitere wichtige Infos

Our home is rustic and it's a rather small house. We live in the woods and you will likely fine a cobweb now and then. We do not adhere to Holiday Inn cleaning standards but spend more time on providing you with the sight of lovely flowers from the garden and tantalizing smells from the kitchen. If a big soup is on the stove- you are welcome to a bowl.
We live in one of the most beautiful places in the US. We are a Danish-American couple in our mid 60's with a lot of travel experience. We speak English, Danish, German and Spanish.
We are gone part of the winter, traveling to either Guatemala or Ecuador and typically visiting Europe once a year.

Mimi und Norms Haus ist ein ganz besonderer Platz. Abgelegen auf einem Hügel, mitten in der Natur. Trotzdem ist man schnell an den Stränden und den Dünen ( Sleeping Bear Dunes) des Lake Michigan. Das Haus ist sehr liebevoll und gemütlich eingerichtet und die Gastgeber sehr herzlich. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und werden sicher wieder hierhin zurückkommen

Mimi and Norm have a little slice of heaven nestled in the woods not too far from Glen Arbor and other area attractions. We had a room just off the main floor and it was a short walk to the bathroom. The design of their home is so very interesting adding to the charm and feeling of being in a cottage in the woods. Mimi and Norm were gracious hosts extending use of their kitchen facilities and coffee pot should we wish. We found common ground discussing world travels and their home exudes the diversity of the far away places they have been.

Norm and Mimi offer a bedroom in their home, cottage like, in the woods near Empire. It is a sort of octagon shape house of interesting angles and rooms, a bit fantasy story like, with various personal and interesting belongings strewn about that gives it a grand-parents home look of comfort and casualness. Heat is a ventilator type fireplace and wood stove that could leave the rental bedroom cold if door is closed. The grounds are lovely, a perfect place to get away "from the maddening crowd".

Mimi and Norm are lovely people. We got to know them during our brief stay, they've led fascinating lives, and are great conversationalists. They provided us with everything we needed, and gave us helpful advice on what to check out in the area. The house is gorgeous, surrounded by peaceful natural beauty.

Mimi was a great host. They have a beautiful small paradise. Everything was easy going. We could use everything there just like at home. Mimi gave us tips and a overview what to do and where to go. All in all a perfect stay. We met a part of her great family and friends. Unfortunately we haven't met her husband Norm.

Beautiful, remote (but not "uncharted"....) while close to everything in the "little fingertip" of Michigan. Quiet, wildlife delights such as wild turkeys, hummingbirds and ravens all took turns visiting the property. Mimi's gardens and Norm's buildings are a delight. We stayed in their own home and our room was super cozy. We visited in mid August and we spent most of our time at the National Park dunes trails. Roads are hilly throughout the area; the region is agricultural and sylvan, so you'll see farmyards and tall tree stands along with the famous Sleeping Bear Dunes. Glen Arbor and Empire are both nearby; but if you're looking for a quiet, off-tourist track stay, then this is a quiet and comfortable option.

My husband, daughter and I had a wonderful time staying at Mimi and Norm's. The property was beautiful and while it did feel secluded it was also central to pretty much everything we wanted to see and do while we were there. Their home was so charming and the bedroom we stayed in was perfect for sleeping - it stayed dark and quiet. We loved the few days we spent in Empire and wouldn't be surprised if we end up at Mimi and Norm's again!
