Season of 2008

Thank you all for visiting our Inn. We've really enjoyed all our new friends we've made this season, and as fall is right out our door, the colars are starting to change. If you haven't already heard, we've changed our website to inform you that we are a Silent Sport resort. We care deeply about what's happening to our enviroment and want to do our best to make sure that our future generations can enjoy our wild Upper Michigan as we do every day! So if you like to walk get out and enjoy our beautiful fall colars with a walk in the woods, and cherish all we have in our country. Were looking forward to a good cross-country ski season.

Spring / Summer of 2008

Our Spring was a long awaiting, axcious for our Star to have her calf. As June finally came and almost went , she gave us a Beautiful black angus calf a girl, we named her silvia. All is well and growing like a weed. Also returning are our Black Bears ,it's a treat to watch them a night, many new quest really like viewing them. In July our Facility we will be inspected to be a Green Facility, we try to use all natural products for cleaning and recycle as much as we can. We also use recycled paper for our office practices, and try to use a reuseable towel program. We also try to use local organic or our own produce for the inn's quests. As well as we grow our own Beef products. We hope everyone has a safe and healthy summer season!

unforgetable stay

For three years ,my girlfriend,Natasha and I visited bed and breakfasts around Chicago, our home base and this year Natasha proposed that we venture a little further north to upper peninsula of michigan. I was skeptical, thinking we could get the same surroundings within an hour or two of Chicago. Well, when we drove down the pine flanked road leading to The Listening Inn, I knew I was in for something out of my usual world and indeed, as Natasha and I discovered in three days there, we were. The Listening Inn lodge ,the surrounding property.the owners, Carol & Leslie and their awsome dog,Buddy, made our stay the best stay in any bed and breakfasts we've stayed at in the past three years. It certainly helped that Leslie even fixed my broken headlight that I suffered at some point between Chicago and Crystal Falls. We can't say enough. If your thinking about pulling the trigger and visiting The Listening Inn, Just do it! You will be happy you did""
Thanks again Carol and Leslie and we look forward to visiting your place in the summer.
David and Natasha
