Apple Acres Farm
Farm vacations are common around the world but the idea of inviting guests to stay overnight on a farm is newer in the United States. We knew early on we wanted to share our farm with others interested in connecting to their food, including meeting modern day small-scale farmers.
Our guests love their experience at Apple Acres Farm! Many appreciate their daily interactions with our free-range chicken flock and our curious Nigerian dwarf goats, Niko and Nibler. We work hard to accommodate our guests' needs, whether that means having a beautiful and relaxing place to stay or learning more about the happenings of our off-grid, regenerative farm.
Not sure if a farm stay is your thing? Check out what past guests have to say about their off-grid farm stay experiences.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have!

“Heather’s hospitality, responsiveness, and flexibility was unparalleled— I couldn’t have asked for more. If you’re in the area, stay here. The location is a beautiful waypoint to explore both the Porcupine Mountains as well as the Keweenaw Peninsula.”

“Heather and Caleb have created a wonderfully peaceful retreat that is still easily accessible to Houghton and Hancock. The house is cozy yet spacious and modern, and we found it had everything we needed to be comfortable. We truly loved all the sustainable practices they have adopted, especially the solar panels and the adorable chicken flock.”

“We really enjoyed our stay here. The space is exactly what it looks like in the listing, and it's very clean. It was hot during our stay, but there was a great breeze through the studio. Beds were very comfortable! We loved spending time with the chickens! Heather is a great host!”

“Amazing stay. Heather accommodated our last minute changes and welcomed us to a beautiful tour around her farm. Very close to Houghton yet far enough to feel like you are off the grid. Love the promotion of energy efficiency in the design. Could not imagine having my first experience in the Keweenaw peninsula without staying here!”

Perfect spot for our family after busy days! We loved the farm tour, the baby goats, and the apartment had everything we needed. We had plenty of room for our family and very clean. Heather & Caleb are great hosts!

“We had such a great time here! Would recommend to anyone. More than just a stylish space, it's a great experience on the farm - we really felt at home there and it was sad to leave the chickens. Great to explore the Keweenaw as well. Heather and Caleb are awesome hosts!”

“Great place to stay that is off the beaten path; super clean loft with all the amenities needed! Heather’s hospitality was above and beyond! She provided a nice tour of the farm and shared so much great information and the tea was outstanding. This place was a 10/10 for sure!”

“What a great place to stay in Houghton. It was a perfect location for our forays to The Porcupine Mountains and then to Copper Harbor. It is immaculately clean and tastily decorated while being off the grid, which was a fascinating learning experience for us. You will be greeted with a tour of the farm and if you are lucky you might see the two fawns that visited every day.”
