Meemo's Farm to offer luxury outdoor experience
EVART — Tucked away in the wilderness outside of Evart is a compound fit for those who love to hunt, fish or simply want to trek deep into the outdoors for a private getaway or retreat.
Meemo's Farm will offer those options and more upon its official opening in May. The business is set to provide a luxury game preserve and exclusive retreat option for couples, families or groups.
The property boasts more than 1,000 acres of woodlands, fields, wetlands and small lakes, perfect for nature lovers, said Mark Evans, manager of Meemo's Farm. Evans, originally from Wales,in the United Kingdom, has been working at the site since October to help make it the best it can be. One who feels at home in the outdoors, he tries to bridge the gap between humans and nature while sustaining the environment.
"The goal of this property is to promote, preserve and sustain wildlife and habitats," Evans said. "The idea is to enjoy the outdoors in an array of activities."
Guests will be able to stay at three buildings on the property suitable for all types of vacationers. Built with nature in mind, each look like they came straight out of a high-end magazine.
The Lodge, the main structure on the property, can sleep up to 26 people and offers a large living area, fully-stocked kitchen, dining room table for 12, outdoor patio with hot tub and a game area featuring a pool table, pinball machines and slot machines. An on-site chef is available to prepare every meal.
The Lanes is a two-story house fit for a group of couples or family members looking for fun indoors and out. The building sits deep in a wooded area near a large pond and inside features a spacious upstairs area that can accommodate six people. Outside, there is a deck and hot tub. On the ground floor, a gymnasium is ready for use. Opposite the gym, the structure offers a special feature for which it was named — a two-lane bowling alley.
For a couple hoping for a more romantic getaway, The Cottage could be the best spot for some alone time. The charming cottage provides comfort with its variety of amenities. In addition to its warm interior, the front porch features a hot tub in front of a fireplace which overlooks marshland.
Each day at the property can bring new experiences. Meemo's makes sure there are plenty of activities for all ages to enjoy. Fishing is available, as well as pheasant, quail and partridge hunting. Skeet and trap shooting ranges have been assembled.
However, those who are looking for a different type of activity also have options, Evans said.
"This isn't about hunting," he added. "We're so much more than that. The property is so big and diverse, you don't have to hunt to have an outdoor experience."
Due to the compound's size, guests who stay at The Lanes or The Cottage can choose to be as removed as they'd like, without the risk of seeing other individuals. Privacy can easily be achieved. Alternatively, visitors can be socially active within The Lodge or on the trap shooting courses.
For those who do not hunt, but would like to participate in outdoor activities, Evans said a zip line, climbing wall, high ropes, swimming, hiking and more are available. In the winter season, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing will be offered.
The estate also can host special events such as weddings, parties and retreats.
"We're the best all-in-one experience that you can get," Evans said. "We're the complete experience."
