Hummingbird Rest is a peaceful Christian Retreat for individuals (One Person only) surrounded by the natural beauty of our 20 acre farm. "The Nest", our 200 square foot tiny house) is the perfect place to turn off the noise and busyness of the world, be still and spend some quiet time alone with God.

The space
The Nest is located across the pond from the main house, which makes it feel very private, yet secure knowing we are not too far away if you need anything. Our beautiful semi-off-the-grid bathroom includes: an eco-friendly (and odorless) compost toilet, a shower and a full length mirror. Fluffy white towels and biodegradable soap are provided. The kitchenette includes: a microwave, ice chest, bottled waters, and an assortment of teas.

Where you’ll be

Battle Creek, Michigan, United States

Like a secret garden Hummingbird Rest is HIDDEN away from the world.

A gated entrance and long tree lined driveway begins the process of slowing us down.

The end of the road reveals a glorious clearing, over 19 open acres, surrounded by woods,
and set apart from the cares of everyday life.​

At the center of the clearing rests two ponds totaling about 1/2 an acre with a footbridge and waterfall connecting them.
A gazebo in the middle of the top pond beacons you to come and stay awhile.

Across the pond from the main house (where the stewards of Hummingbird Rest Live)
is a Tiny Guest Cottage we call "The Nest", which is available for quiet spiritual retreats.

About 10 open acres are planted each year with either corn or soybeans

The red Barn is home to our flock of ducks (who free range during the day), Two super cute Nigerian Dwarf Goats, a dozen friendly chickens,
and a couple of hardworking barn cats

Behind the barn is the entrance to the Prayer Trail, then continues with a wide path that goes around the property.
*If you walk the perimeter+the driveway it's about one mile

Wild black raspberries, Mulberries and Mushrooms can be gathered seasonally as you stroll the paths.

There is always something to do and see here
or do nothing at all.
Whichever you chose, make sure you invite the King of Kings to join you!
