Quiet & pleasant

I was greeted upon arrival, shown where to park assisted with water and electric hookups.
This is back to nature in a secluded quiet place with forest all around with nature walking trails with benches placed along the trails. Very peaceful. Great hosts

Helpful

While staying with Off-Roaders, my truck broke down on a dirt road -- sketchy cell reception -- next to a graveyard. Somehow I was eventually able to get ahold of my daughter in Ohio, who called AAA,, then Off Roaders, who took me into the village to pick up my truck the next day. That's a very condensed version of a scary situation. .
They were like family. Happy to help.
I felt safe and comfortable there!

Peaceful, pleasant stay

Slate’s Serenity is perfectly named. Their property looks like a beautiful little park. They were so helpful and kind throughout our stay, from guiding us in, to providing us with resources about the area to helping us hook up to power and water. We were very appreciative!!
I will note that we have AT&T, and were not able to get consistent reception (cell or data, even with booster) here. If you are seeking to work/stream video, you will want to drive to a nearby town. This is not a hardship, the local towns are amazing!

A Little Bit of Heaven

We were cheerfully greeted. They were so helpful getting us set up. Such a gracious couple wanting our comfort and make sure we had what we needed. The property is BEAUTIFUL. Plenty of Room to navigate our 25' class C and Jeep tow. Can't say enough that describes our wonderful experience with THE OFF-ROADERS who shared invaluable info regarding their rv adventures and about the local vegetation and wildlife we were so interested in learning about. Just wish we could have stayed longer. We want to come back to Slate's Serenity when we visit the great state of Michigan again!

Special Safe Haven

Absolutely perfect and serene place to make a stop. Wonderful hosts our stay was short but would have loved having more to visit with and get to know Off-Roaders. Thank you for opening up your home for us to stay. Bentley 🐾 also passing on his enjoyment to have met your four legged babies. When we pass through again we truly hope to have time to stay.
Take care and Travel Safe and we hope to see you down the road!!!

Peaceful and Relaxing

Our hosts are the best! Friendly and accommodating. It was great talking with them in the mornings over coffee and learning about them. They keep themselves very busy. This was our 1st BDW location and they have set the bar pretty high which all others will be compared to.

Amazing host!

Slate’s Serenity is a great secluded rural location. Hosts “Off-Roaders” greeted us on arrival, guided us into our spot, pointed out the water and electric hookups, and provided an information sheet about their property amenities and the surrounding area. Cecil and Libby, their beautiful yellow Labs, accompanied them to greet us. Host is located about five minutes from the skydiving facility we were here to visit. Their house is gorgeous and their property just as alluring. They have a huge, beautiful yard, a lovely pond, and trails in the woods with benches to stop and relax and enjoy the surroundings. There is an abundance of wildlife, saw a lot of deer and raccoon tracks and saw sandhill cranes flying over the property. We felt so welcome and comfortable here. “Off-Roaders” were so friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed our visit with them and would be very pleased to visit again.

A wonderful experience

One of the major highlights of this trip was meeting our hosts and spending some time getting to know them. We had an absolutely delightful time chatting with them each morning. Definitely recommended if your travels bring you anywhere near Slate's Serenity.

Warm welcome and beautiful property

I received a gracious welcome from hosts and friendly dogs, entering this lovely country spot with nearby nature preserves and trails. Besides a morning cup of coffee and good chat on the porch about their Alaska travels, I heard about quite a career directing Boy Scout camps. The care to gardens and buildings really shows, with much pleasure in many crafted things.
