This beautiful countryside private home - referred to as "The Carriage House at Stonington Estate", is positioned behind the original farmhouse where we, your hosts, reside on 3 acres of land. This house has a history of being rented for over 70 years. The first building you see on the left as you enter Stonington Estate, is the design lab for Legacy Safeguards - all natural sprays -

There is a self check in with code to get keys at the front door. We look forward to meeting and hosting people from all types of backgrounds and cultures.

The house has one full bathroom, large open living room and includes a fully equipped kitchen with stove, refrig, microwave, toaster over & coffee pot. There are plenty of dishes, pots & pans, & utensils to prepare any meal plan. You will also find some staples ie. coffee, sugar, salt & pepper and other spices.

All the bedrooms have plenty of closet space, shelves and some drawers.

The entire house is accessible for you with exception of utility room reserved for maintenance staff. Everything is on one floor. Upon entering you will find a guest book that we appreciate our guests signing. Also on the Kitchen table you will find a welcome notebook that has WiFi password, house rules, expectation for check out and other helpful information about what's in the house and hightlights of the area.There is a one stall attached car port for our guests with additional parking in front of the house. Towels & linens included with extra blankets/pillows available and essentials such as soap, toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo & conditioner.

Other added amenities are board games located in louvered closet to left of TV, books for all ages and variety of toys for kids in single bedroom closet. There is a small deck with a swing, & 2 chairs meant to be enjoyed to sit outside.

We are very relaxed and available hosts and always try to give our guests lots of privacy and freedom. We will interact on a case by case basis but will not bother you unless requested.

Our WiFi was recently upgraded to 25GB and runs very smooth with simple tasks like emailing, browsing, streaming several devices, Netflix etc. There is a one page sheet on the kitchen bar with a few other details to make your stay comfortable.

5/5 Excellent

The reason we came to Michigan was for a family wedding… We have never been there before and this house made us feel right at home! We met the owners when we arrived he was very welcoming and kind… he saw we had and infant and told us they have a pack n play if needed…. The property was beautiful, I have a 7 year old son that would have loved the play set in the yard he unfortunately couldn’t come because of school…. All in all this house was in a great Location very clean and made you feel at home especially with the fresh fruit and bottle water in the fridge…. Thank you! I will definitely rent this house again if I ever return to Michigan 😀
