Small town quiet people

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We live in a small town in beautiful northern MI but do spend our spare time traveling around to warm places in winter months when we can. We hope to retire and buy an RV within the next 5 years. I work at a hospital as a nurse and my husband is a chaplain for Hospice. We live very conveniently just outside the small town of Cadillac MI on a 10 acre lot. There is room to roam.

Jmartin1's Pets

We have two indoor cats and a husky/lab that has free roam of the property. You will need to park within her domain. She does not know there are strangers just friends she has not met yet. I would ask that we all supervise their first meeting if you have a furry friend of your own.

Serene country and friendly hosts

I came home with hot peppers, herbs, and brüssel sprouts from this delightful stay. For once, I lingered in Cadillac and was glad to do so with some local hikes including right on this couples beautiful acreage. Farmers Market on Tuesdays. Thanks for everything!!

Lovely property & excellent hosts

We enjoyed our stay at Open Spaces! Jmartin1 and her husband were extremely kind and gracious, offering water and electric if needed. Their property is spacious and beautiful. My husband enjoyed sitting outside in the morning, drinking his coffee and watching the deer. The kids loved their dog who was very friendly and got along well with our dog. Excellent location for our visits to Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore and Traverse City.

Thanks for hosting us… we had a great time riding bikes around Lake Cadillac. Clam Lake Brewery had very good pizza and beers. Probably see you next year. This was our 2nd stay.

This was a great place for a 45’ motorhome.

They will tell you how to park to get the best to level up. They let their dog run the property, but the dog is friendly. It was a great stay, and the Jmartin1 are a great host. See you the next time we go you way.

Wonderful stay!

My stay with Jmartin1 was lovely! She was very helpful and communicative. Our pups loved playing together in the big field behind the house, and the view was beautiful!

Open spaces and hospitality wrapped up in 1

Jmartin1 communicated well prior to our stay being very responsive. On arrival she greeted us at the driveway with clarification as to best ways for parking and finding a level spot.
Was able to let our pups play some and there was a large field for us and our pup to roam.
Nice quiet neighborhood in a beautiful rural setting.
Highly recommend!

Circle driveway was nice!

Lives Up To It's Name

Open Spaces was truly what it was. Our Hosts were so accommodating with all the details and very helpful for our stay. Wish we could have visited with them, but it was a busy time. Maybe next time. We felt at home, away from home. Loved even watering their garden and watching it grow. You will be blessed, just being a part of Open Spaces.

Beautiful view and wonderful host

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful site.

There were many options for parking and the host was friendly and could not be more accommodating.

We definately recommend this site and host.
If we are back in this area we would love to come here again.
