The Fields, the Midwest's first luxury glamping experience, will be opening in South Haven on June 15, with reservations available seven days a week through the last weekend of October. The 30-acre property is located 3.5 miles from the beaches of Lake Michigan and will have 10 rooms that can each accommodate two adults. 

The rooms, which include wood-burning stoves, king beds, luxury linens, en-suite bathrooms, bathroom amenities and stylized fixtures and seatings, will provide guests an experience that combines five-star resort luxuries and the comfort of the great outdoors. Two common areas, The Willow and Pine Point, will also be available for guests. The Willow is an indoor space, which will offer guests meals, snacks and daily activities. Pine Point will include a fire pit and Adirondack chairs, perfect for enjoying the woodsy backdrop.

For groups and events, The Fields will have a private event space, The Barn. The 1,500-square-foot space will seat up to 100 guests for weddings, events and dinners. The Barn will be available for reservations June 15 through November 1.

To keep guests entertained, The Fields will have several on-site activites including hiking, a U-pick blueberry farm, group yoga, fishing, gardening and culinary experiences including grilling and s'mores kits. Seasonal pies will also be served daily at The Willow common area.

As a South Haven native, The Fields owner Irene Wood says she grew up in between the town and the country--two blocks from the candy store and movie theater and with a backyard full of cows, pigs, corn and soybeans. The combination of luxury in town and nature on the farm is what inspired her to open The Fields.

"It was the best of both worlds--that seamless duality is what we will deliver to each person that visits The Fields," Wood says. "We want to transport our guests back to their own moments of childlike wonder, connect them with South Haven's beautiful surroundings and allow them to reconnect with themselves, their friends and their family."

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
