Lodging Information

Arranging for Your Time at Tara's Meadow

Tara's Meadow offers quiet, comfortable, and inexpensive "glamping" overnight facilities in the heart our 30 acre meadow and forest sanctuary. Unwind beneath the Milky Way in an official Monarch Butterfly Meadow preserve, and with the sightings of wildlife and sounds of the occasional Sand Hill Crane, Barred Owl, and Common Loon to grace your solitude and rest. Tara's Meadow is perfectly situated for nature lovers as a Dark Sky Nature site, with Beaver Island’s larger official Dark Sky Preserve just a short walk away. In addition to the birding, butterflies, and wildlife found on location, we offer close access to lakes and trails, marshes and other nature preserves nearby, including Miller's Marsh Natural Area and beautiful Greene's Lake with its 300-year-old oaks on the shore.


Your host Seamus is available as an official Island Tour Guide and offers guests a variety of other “guest sojourn” services. 


Lodging Options

We host individuals and couples seeking quiet repose and explorations of Beaver Island, as well as small groups for special retreats and educational events. 

Amish Cabin

The Amish Cabin provides a cozy and homey "glamping" experience while still being in the middle of nature. Located at the edge of the meadow, the cabin has a decadent full size bed as well as a loft space that sleeps an additional 1-2 people. 

Geodesic Dome

The Geodesic Dome offers guests a unique alternative to traditional overnight stays. Located within the nearby forest, the dome is very quiet, with an open interior layout that accommodates multiple people in sleeping bags or cots.

Meadow Camp Sites

Tara's Meadow allows for a plethora of suitable camping sites where anyone can pitch a tent or sleep directly under the open night sky.
