Do you know or have you hosted this user?

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.

Getting pretty good at RV maintenance and repair. Have a 1988 Airstream that doesn't go on the road at the current time. Computer software, security and networking is what I did before I retired.

Lovely farm

We had a great time at windy bottom. Our hosts were most welcoming!

Nice spot

We stayed one night at windy bottoms. It’s a really nice spot out in farm country. Nice and quiet and very convenient if you are going to Macinaw island. Our hosts were very friendly and made us feel at home. I highly recommend them if you are in their area.

Great spot in northern Michigan!

Windy Bottoms is in a rural setting outside Mackinaw City and Petoskey/Traverse City. Alan and Lynn were excellent hosts and offer a spot on their farm among Christmas trees, with access to water and electric. Although they are located on a dirt road, the road is very well maintained and their place is easy to find. We were able to visit Tahquamenon Falls and Mackinac Island using their site as our home base for a few nights in late May – black fly season (yikes!). Other than those pesky flies and mosquitoes large enough to lasso, we enjoyed our time there and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting northern MI and the UP!

Great conversations

We really enjoyed our stay with Alan, Lynn and the beautiful girls. Very close to Mackinaw island so was able to head over for the day from here. Thank you for hosting us I know the kids loved the trolley rides around the yard.
