Under the towering blue sky of northern Michigan, at the top of Resort Pike sits a bucolic farm. Born in 1882 from the strong will of one family and lovingly cared for through the ages, this iconic farm stands as a reminder to much simpler times. Now, in a rare offering, this storybook farm and piece of Petoskey/Walloon history can be yours. Enjoy the quiet pace of an up north farm nestled on 10 serene acres in the adorable farmhouse. The epitome of country living, the home sits in the shade of 100 year old maples and features original details like the flooring, fireplace, and millwork, but has been updated with modern amenities. 4 sunlit bedrooms, 2 full baths, and a gas fireplace in a cozy family room round out the home. The barn, sturdy and proud, sits like a sentinel watching over its grounds. Inside the field stone foundation there is a nifty little space to house an art studio or just a quiet place to work and ponder life’s questions. The main level of the barn is in original condition creating a unique ambiance for small events or it could be used simply for storage. A short distance from the main home is a free standing bunk house. The perfect space for an office, or let the kids take over and make a clubhouse. Manicured lawns mixed with a vintage apple orchard, rolling pastures and lots of hidden nooks allowing you to enjoy the outdoors. Gather or isolate, host large parties or small celebrations, it’s your choice. A hidden pathway leads from the lawn to a private drive and 3 car detached-garage making it a dream staging area for events or space for storage. Quietly tucked away in a corner of the property is a charming tiny house with electric and water. The perfect place to house guests or enjoy an evening fire and glass of wine. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of the most long-standing farms in the Walloon area. Live the country life just a stones throw from all the charming destinations surrounding Little Traverse Bay.
