Venue Setting

A stately historic fieldstone four-square farmhouse perched atop six beautifully landscaped scenic acres overlooking Intermediate Lake, an all sports lake with excellent fishing, on Antrim County's Chain-of-Lakes. The house was built by Dr. Andrew Baxter, a surgeon from Chicago in 1910 and originally had 120 acres for a horse farm. The house has served many functions since then, for both its families residing in it as well as a community space. It also sat vacant for a few years. Today, the home's original wood floors, 9' ceilings, wood burning stone fireplaces, large windows, wide trim, plaster walls and brass hardware provide guests with authentic early 19th century farmhouse details combined with stylish yet simple decor for a classic modern occasion.
