How to Find Us

The Crop House is 5 minutes from the town of Newaygo, on a private, wooded lot. The house is on a hill that overlooks Hess Lake. Public lake access is available down the street to the west but we do not have direct access. A convenience store is a couple houses east of our driveway and you can walk there. In the summer, they have an ice cream shop.

We are located just off E. 88th Street. Our little street is not on many maps so we ask that you map out our driveway address, 1826 E. 88th Street, Newaygo, Michigan. The Crop House sign is at the street and once you turn into the driveway you will go left at the end of the trees. Another Crop House sign is there. Feel free to park in the right two stalls of the garage or in the driveway. There is plenty of parking. A lock box is located on the right side of the garage which provides a garage door opener for your use during your stay with us. A sheltered crafter’s access ramp will be found inside the garage for your convenience. The designated organizer / group coordinator of your event will be provided with the access code.
