The SpaceBluebell an 18 foot English shepherd hut is located on a small private 10 acre parcel in Southeast Michigan. It sits tucked away from the main house with a private garden and patio. A shared lawn, gardens, and woodlands offer a natural setting for the hut. It's easy to relax into the tranquility of nature in this sophisticated, clean, and safe setting.
The hut (135 SF), is furnished with original fine art, a full-size Tuft & Needle mattress, oak flooring, custom wet bar with hand sculpted English Shaw clay sink, a British Perrin & Rowe polished chrome faucet, a spacious under-counter refrigerator, en-suite wash room including shower with well-engineered plumbing fixtures, and lots of storage. I even designed a little countertop space-for-two to enjoy breakfast, tea or wine and cheese indoors. I've selected only the finest English fabrics and custom furnishings, making this beautiful little hut exquisite inside and out. You'll enjoy my attention to detail and the cleanliness of the hut and all facilities.
Please note there is a two guest limit, adults only, and no pets. Weekend stay requires 2-night minimum. Check in: 4-7pm. Check out: 11am
We're two miles west of downtown Dexter where there is plenty to do... outdoor or river fun, adventure, theatre, restaurants, festivals and shopping. It's a cute little town to see.
GLAMOR + CAMPING
Glamping is the 21st century response to lodging with style and charm in nature. Enjoy communing with nature without giving up the comforts of a sophisticated, safe and clean place to lodge. Experience the mysterious qualities of the humble shepherd hut as it releases you from the noise, clutter and excess of modern-day living while rejuvenating your senses in a lovely and charming setting.
Upon arrival, and the moment you set foot outside your car, you'll feel a deep sense of serenity. There is a quiet and tranquil energy here that will delight. Slowly wake up to sandhill cranes calling and red-winged blackbirds trilling. Hummingbirds, rabbits, butterflies, deer, turtles, and other wildlife are frequent visitors!
AIR CONDITIONING: The hut is not equipped with air conditioning. It does have window screens and a super quiet Vornado fan and usually a lovely breeze coming off of Daisy Lake. It's just enough luxury to feel comfortable but still feel connected to the natural setting.
NATURE CHANGES THE WAY YOU FEEL
Experience nature, solitude and privacy in our luxurious 18 foot English shepherd hut. The hut is situated in the garden, surrounded by woods and flowers, and furnished with impressive amenities, yet humble enough to blend into this restful setting. Once you are inside the hut, you will discover a wave of cool florals and pastels in the English linen draperies and linens that provide delicate accents in this warm and inviting romantic retreat. With the perfect touch of luxury and convenience, you'll soon feel calm and quietly alert, and flirtation may subtly arise. Even if you experience weather that keeps you indoors during your visit, you'll enjoy the zen-like qualities and benefits that this petite space offers. Every detail is designed to create a serene and tranquil setting. You may never want to leave as you experience deep calm, relaxation and connection.
