LogHaven is off-grid and totally supported by alternative energy solutions. Built in the year 2000, electric power was available only at a cost of $78,000 . Owners Gail and Paul Gotter thought that they could accomplish an alternative solution at a much lower price, hence a wind turbine on an 80 foot tower was erected.  A second smaller turbine on the barn adds capacity. Solar was installed later on and provides an equal percentage of required energy. A one-day seminar titled "An Introduction to Alternative Energy" is offered based upon interest for those who would like to learn how they might apply the technology to homes or small businesses.

Energy and eco-concious practices are observed and conservation of natural resources whenever possible through recycling, reduced laundry, composting, lighting and power reductions, Energy Star appliances and  chemical-free cleaning products, etc.

Inspected and approved by the Michigan Bed & Breakfast Association as an inn that assures personal hospitality, is fully insured, and meets its high quality standards.



LogHaven's owners and innkeepers, Gail and Paul Gotter built on an 80 acre tract of land that has belonged to Gail's family since the late 1800's. Originally a homestead farm this property boasts of hardwood and pine forests as well as open areas/meadows which attract a wide variety of wildlife such as whitetail deer, turkey, bear, coyote and small game. Also home to an unusually large range of birds such as bald eagles, Kirtland's warblers, sand-hill cranes, owls and many songbirds.     


The original turbine sits atop an 80 foot tower and has a blade span of 15 feet.  A second smaller turbine is located on the barn and catches the "lower" wind presence.


Eight solar panels for a total of 2000 watts provide an additional energy source and contribute 50% of LogHaven's power requirement .
