Summerhouse Lavender Farm began as a venture by Dan McGavin and Carol Brown to get back to a meaningful connection to community and nature. The Saugatuck/Douglas area with its creative and artistic vibe has always been a peaceful retreat for visitors and local inhabitants alike.
To celebrate their love for this community, a one acre parcel of land that had been used as a horse farm for the past 25+ years, has been transformed into a community gathering place and peaceful oasis for visitors. It was a perfect location with naturally sandy soil, lots of sun, and all of the natural necessities for growing lavender.
Even with over 1,000 lavender plants, they knew that a community space would need more than just the calming effects of lavender. With that in mind, peaceful gardens, bird feeders, exotic trees, a zen garden, fountains, sculptures and many small sitting spaces were added to embrace and enhance that sense of calm restfulness everyone needs. We strive to help as many people as we can to reconnect with the earth and all of its sounds, sights, smells, and the peace these bring to our soul. In 2022, this legacy was passed on to Eric Adams, a Michigan native, with a shared love of community, nature, the arts, and all things peaceful.
We have a creative respect for land, lavender and people. Please join us at the farm and our aromatherapy store from Mothers Day through mid October, Thursday through Saturday, from 11 to 5 and Sunday 11 to 3, to unwind from the stress of every day life here at Summerhouse Lavender Farm.
