Your Innkeepers – Dietmar and Marion Stollenwerk

In 2001 Dietmar’s work brought our family to the United States from our home in Germany. Our journey started in Virginia and then we continued to move through the USA ending up in Alabama. The third stop on our journey was Michigan. We were awed by Michigan’s variety and beauty. One day our explorations brought us to the shores of Lake Michigan, and we knew this was the place we wanted our journey to end and live our dreams, to work together as Innkeepers of a Bed and Breakfast.
Our mission as Innkeepers of “Wind in the Pines” is to make your stay a memorable experience.

Wind in the Pines Bed & Breakfast is certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a wildlife habitat. We received this certification to recognize our “planning, landscaping and sustainable gardening so that wildlife may find quality habitat – food, water, cover and places to raise their young”. Relax on the guest patio or glance out any window and enjoy our wide variety of birds, wild turkeys, ruffed grouse, or even the occasional deer or coyote.
