We are located in the center of the Thumb region. Lake Huron & Saginaw Bay surround the Thumb area and are approx 15 minutes away. Many summer festivals dot the shoreline. Bad Axe is 4 miles south and offers a Walmart and several food establishments. Wildlife is abound in our area. You may see deer, wild turkeys, fox and even bald eagles. This area is primarily a farm community, so you will encounter acres of crops as well as wooded landscapes. I have water on site for holding tank fills. Suggested Local Attractions:We have miles of shoreline and some of the areas best beaches. Cheeseburger in Caseville is one of our largest festivals, But Caseville hosts several throughout the year. We are located about 20 miles from Caseville. Port Austin hosts the areas largest Farmer Markets each Saturday through mid October. The Octagon Barn is a great historical attraction and hosts festivals during the summer and fall.

    We had a wonderful stay at Ricker’s Roost! Dale greeted us upon arrival and showed us the parking options. There is a huge horseshoe shaped gravel driveway so it is an easy enter/exit. The grounds are just beautiful and well maintained. The first morning Dale brought us sweet corn and tomatoes along with a book about the lighthouses in Michigan. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

    This was our first BW stay and it was wonderful. Our host, Dale, offered water and electricity and also gave us some fresh picked asparagus from his garden. It was delicious! He also gave us several suggestions on restaurants and things to do in the area. His white golden, Rudy, is super sweet, loving and well behaved. Easy and level parking with a beautiful view. Thanks Dale, for a great first impression of a BW stay!

    We had a great stay at Ricker's Roost. Parking is level and hookups are handy if needed. Rudy the Golden retriever gave us a warm welcome! Our hosts were knowledgeable and friendly and we had a great peaceful stay. We were in the area for a kayak fishing tournament and were given some good local information. The whole area is very nice and we look forward to visiting again!

    We had a peaceful stay and enjoyed meeting Bugman, his wife and super friendly dog Rudy. They were so kind and offered anything we might need. The driveway parking area was level and far enough from the house for privacy. Electricity was kindly offered but we were testing out our battery power and did not need it. We recommend this location and the kind hosts!
