Northern Michigan Dining: The Hillside Homestead owner Susan Odom invites you and your friends to an historic dinner experience at the charming Northern Michigan hotel in Suttons Bay!

Using historic recipes, Susan will create delicious from-scratch dishes with simple, fresh, local ingredients prepared just for you and your group. Take delight in participating in the culinary adventure that culminates with a meal served family-style in the dining room, lit by oil lamps. This is a wonderful way to spend an autumnal evening with friends! The entire farm is yours for the evening, allowing you time to enjoy the farmhouse, grounds and the farm animals, too!

Here are the four easy steps to book your dinner:

1) Group of friends: Get together a group of 6-20 people and find some dates that are good for everyone.

2) Make Reservation: Call Susan Odom at 231-271-1131 to set up your dinner date, get all the details and make payment to reserve your date.

3) Menu Planning: Susan will plan and email three menu options just for you. Discuss the menu options with your group and call/email Susan with your final delicious selection.

4) The Big Day: Arrive at Hillside Homestead at your chosen time. Tour the farmhouse. See the farm animals.  Sip a drink if you like (BYOB). Enjoy your dinner with your group and have a great time!
