Dogs must be on leash, please clean up after your pet. NOTE: No Pittbulls, Pittbull mixes or aggressive dogs of any kind.

We also have a 9 year old Golden Retriever. Both dogs are very friendly, not leashed and roam the property. Please no loud noise, respect our neighbors. Children must be supervised and stay away from outbuildings and the apiaries. Please leave the site the way you found it.
We're on a paved lightly traveled road. Driveway approach is slightly oversize and can accommodate any size rig. Note: If approaching from the North, swing wide into the opposite lane to enter the driveway. Our driveway goes through the woods and branches are cut back to allow for up to 13' clearance with the driveway wide enough to allow any size rig to easily get through. Tow vehicles can stay hooked up, or disconnected and parked next to RV. We can take motorhomes over 35' on a case by case basis, however travel trailers must be no longer than 35'.
Hosted By Schulerranch
We are "young" retirees with a love of travel and RV'ing. Our adventures have taken us to many national parks and monuments across the USA. In addition, we have travelled to Europe many times, visiting friends and their families. Each winter we take our travel trailer from blustery southeast Michigan to Florida or the Alabama gulf coast. We enjoy the outdoors and meeting other folks who share a love of RV'ing and travel. We've hosted several high school foreign exchange students from Germany, Denmark and Switzerland. Our grown daughter lives in Denver and is embarking on a career as a dentist. Our hobbies outside of traveling include beekeeping, which we're always eager to share with others, and growing Hosta plants, of which we have over 120 different types. My wife's father lives with us and loves to talk about the military and muscle cars having been affiliated with both for many years. Home Town: Our hometown is Smiths Creek, Michigan. We enjoy our wooded property and the relative peace and solitude it offers. Summers are often spent kayaking along the beautiful Lake Huron shoreline not far from our home, or taking short camping trips to locations within our scenic state. Favorite Boondocking Locations: We've only stayed at a couple boondocker locations and have enjoyed both equally. Skills or Expertise to Share: We are both retired professionals whose hobbies include shade gardening, beekeeping, home improvement projects, reading great non-fiction books, raising monarch butterflies, hiking, nature photography and snorkeling.

This was our very first Harvest Host as we set out on our inaugural RV adventure. The setting was perfect. Quiet, with a beautiful view of their property, level and easy to park site on gravel. We were provided with both water and electric along with a special gift of their own honey. M & L & G were such incredible hosts. Very personable, communicative and helpful with advice. We absolutely loved our stay and would highly recommend. If we are ever in the area again, we would definitely book again. Thank you!

We had a great, but rainy two day stay here, and had a good time. Great communication with host, and accommodating to our rushed schedule. The site is nice and level, with water and electricity right there. We did not find the power lacking. We will definitely stay again when it's not raining, and we have time to hike the trail.

Very nice setting, level with good water and electric hookup. Voltage was a little on the low side. had no chance to chat with host due to a rare, large infestation of mosquitoes, due to recent heavy rains. If we were traveling this way again, I would definitely stay here and get to know the host.

I have a feeling I will be echoing others reviews. This is a beautiful setting that the hosts have created to share with travelers. The effort put in is very obvious. The communication was fantastic, I was met and showed where to park. It was level and we were offered electric and water. On top of all of that, fresh tomatoes and zuchinni as well as a gift of their fresh honey! My 93 year old Mom says “ I loved that stay”

We stayed a couple nights before going over into Canada. It was perfect. The hosts met us at the driveway to guide us in and provided us with two honey samples from their bee hives. The site has an expansive yard next to it that our dogs thoroughly enjoyed (frisbee). It was a few minutes off of I-69 and I-94 so a perfect stopover on our journey. Thank you for a wonderful, peaceful stay.
