LOGHAVEN B&B: OFF THE POWER GRID AND ON THE EQUESTRIAN TRAIL

January 23rd, 2013 by linda


LogHaven Bed, Breakfast & Barn is nestled in the heart of the Huron National Forest near West Branch. Innkeepers Gail and Paul Gotter tell its story in their own words….

We are absolutely unique in that we live totally “off the power grid” here at LogHaven Bed & Breakfast.  We make our own electricity using a wind turbine and solar panels. We use all of today’s appliances from dishwasher to microwave, surround sound to satellite TV.  But we don’t get electric bills.  Many of our guests come to our monthly ‘Introduction to Alternative Energy” seminar and stay with us just to observe how we do it.

LogHaven is warm, welcoming and completely contemporary. While self-sustaining, it offers all the modern amenities you expect from a Lake to Lake-member B&B.

Our B&B has three large guestrooms and provides an atmosphere of comfort and hospitality.  Our guests have described LogHaven as “the next best thing to home,” “my view of heaven” and “a wonderful place to relax.”  Outdoor decks surround the building and include a screened-in porch. They are furnished with rocking chairs in which to sit, enjoy a glass of wine and take in the incredible views. A table and chairs is handy for an al fresco lunch or the cocktail hour.

We are a short five miles to cross-country skiing at the Ogemaw Hills Ski Area in the AuSable State Forest. But if you prefer simple countryside skiing over its 15 miles of groomed trails, we have LOTS of snow, woods and trails everywhere! How about skiing right from the front door!

If you have horses, LogHaven has the barn and everything else you’ll need to bring them along for the ride.

Got horses? We invite people and their horses to come to LogHaven for trail-riding. We have all the facilities — stalls, run-ins and pastures — and there are unlimited miles of back roads, trails and two-tracks for those quiet “in the woods” trail rides. Autumn is an especially beautiful time for riding although the wilderness terrain is majestic year around.

Topping off a great night’s stay, LogHaven offers a complete “country” breakfast prepared by Chef Paul.  Enjoy baked goods, fresh fruit and perhaps a strata, skillet dish or french toast served with home-made jams and locally-produced maple syrup.  Coffee is available any time of day, and we offer a variety of complimentary beverages right in your room. Enjoy cookies hot and fresh from the oven every day!
