Everyone: This year is looking difficult for a number of reasons, and at this time we don't plan to host visitors. Check back again before your trip to see if this has changed. Our 15 acre hobby farm is located at the "tip of the Mitt" 12 miles from Mackinaw City and 12 miles from Cross Village - flat, grassy and has many trees. Very quiet and peaceful. Dogs might be welcome, if they get along with ours. Have a good Verizon 4G signal here, don't know about other vendors, but can see the cell tower. Water is available to fill white tank. The driveway to the barn is where the power is located, so I imagine most will want to set up either in the driveway or on the grass next to the breaker panel. May and June are black fly season so we won't be outside without protective gear in the day time. Sorry, no more guests can be accepted after Labor Day, we need the time to prepare for winter. Suggested Local Attractions:Close to Blissfest, Big Mac, Wilderness State Park and the Mackinaw Island ferries. Legs Inn is down the road. Many microbreweries in the general area.

Retired from work, working to live. Details: Retired in 2016 from Weather Service, have a hobby farm in Northern MI. Have spent the winter here in an RV, probably won't do that again. It's the wife and I and our two lab mixes in our Silverado pulling a portable New York hotel room. Happy to trade our summers here, where the weather is cool, with you where your winters are warmer. Home Town: Levering MI Favorite Boondocking Locations: Canada, Colorado, Washington State, Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, etc. Skills or Expertise to Share: Getting pretty good at RV maintenance and repair. Computer software, security and networking is what I did before I retired.

    We stopped here for a night’s stay and to have a spot to park our rig with a hookup so our kitties could have A/C while we visted the island for my birthday weekend. The host was so kind and we enjoyed talking with him! Definitely an amazing place to stay while you’re enjoying the area.

    Windy Bottoms is a great place to stay. It's close to Mackinaw City, the ferries to Mackinaw Island and St Ignace. Nice level spot with electric. Alan, one of the hosts, is very easy to talk with. We would stay here again.

    We enjoyed our stay at Windy Bottoms. It was the perfect location for the areas we wanted to visit. Alan was so friendly and made us feel welcomed. He greeted us upon arrival and gave us a couple of parking options. We parked on the gravel driveway which was very level. It was so peaceful and quiet day and night. Would definitely stay here again.

    Beautiful setting, nice host, adorable dogs, electric plug in, and acres of land to behold! Our dog had a blast! We loved Windy Bottoms and would definitely return. Also, had an excellent take out meal from Harbor Lights restaurant which is on the way there coming from the north.
