Outdoors: This 5,600 square foot home is a paradise for adults and children alike. Front and back porches grace the first floor and front and back balconies span the second floor. The balconies are relaxing spaces to take in the outdoors at the treetop level. Hermitage Hills Estate has 10+ acres of water: four large private fishing/ swimming/ kayaking ponds. No Michigan fishing license is needed since we own the ponds. Please bring your own bait, tackle, and poles if you wish to fish. Ask Nick about the best fishing spots! Swim, fish, and kayak our private ponds, enjoy a large reading selection, and cozy up by the bonfire pit to roast marshmallows while enjoying stellar stargazing in the backyard. A Holland gas grill is also available for your use. Our guests are welcome to use two adult-sized orange kayaks along with our old, leaky rowboat. Two plastic tubs in the garage have 10 adult-sized life jackets, five youth life jackets (50-90 lbs.) and three infant life jackets (0-30 lbs.). There are horse shoes, croquet, badminton and a large playset with a tire swing, slides, and more. Enjoy a stroll through rolling glacial till known as 'hills and dales' in Hillsdale County, Michigan, including our black walnut grove of nearly 300 mature trees. The House Amenities: Enjoy hotel amenities in your own private home. Hermitage Hills Estate has fresh bed linens, pillows, and towels for our guests. A washer and dryer is available for your use. We provide HE laundry soap. If you use your own laundry soap, please make sure it's high efficiency (HE) before use. Entertainment: Campus high-speed WiFi is always available. There's a 43' LG LED flat-screen TV with Charter Cablevision and integrated Bluetooth surround sound system in the family room and another 43' smart TV in the finished basement. There's a pool table in the finished basement and an air hockey table in the garage. Kitchen, Breakfast Nook, and Dining Room: The kitchen is fully equipped with Le Creuset cookware and bakeware, blender, Cuisinart food processor, Kitchenaid stand mixer, electric griddle, and much more. There are matching table settings for 30+ people, cooking utensils, Krups drip coffee pot, (we provide filters and coffee), Keurig (with some K-cups) toaster, microwave, and a double oven. A fridge in the garage (just off the kitchen) is ready for your use. The formal dining room seats 14 and the breakfast nook has seating for eight. If you need anything we don't have, we'll do our very best to accommodate. We provide many basic pantry staples so guests don't have to overbuy for short stays (creamer, sugar, honey, coffee, spices, condiments, cooking oil, bug repellent, sunscreen, etc.).
