History of The Listening Inn:

Welcome to The Listening Inn Bed-and-Breakfast website. We would like to tell you a little about ourselves and our project.

Carol and her Late husband (Mark) have been lured to nature’s outdoor adventures for a long time. They moved to Upper Michigan in the 70’s leading a remote life in a scratch built cabin on the banks of the Paint River. The goal was to be as self-sufficient as possible living off the land.

More outdoor experiences came when a Carol and her husband (Mark) accepted a job running a remote “Fly-In” Fishing camp in North-West Ontario, Canada. Sixteen years later an opportunity to purchase a unique piece of real estate in the Upper Peninsula grabbed our attention. What a perfect place to build a log lodge. The lodge Mark had dreamed of building had to be the best in its class to go along with the 560 acres of giant pine trees, open meadows, fabulous hardwood trees, miles of trails with rolling terrain and wonderful Peterson Creek passing through to the Paint River.

So now after 5 years of hard work this outstanding facility is ready for you to enjoy. We look forward to you being our guest and enjoying everything that this 10,000 square foot log bed and breakfast has to offer. We welcome the opportunity to share with you what we have learned. Come see what lies North of the “Tension Zone”, you won’t be disappointed. In memory of my late Husband (Mark Stokes)  We’ll carry on with teaching the outdoor lure, to our quests. And sharing our home for you to enjoy!
