Welcome to Maple Cove Bed and Breakfast. When we were writing this introduction it gave us a chance to reflect on the past 20 years in our home. When I first walked into Maple Cove or the Fruehauf estate as it was known to us but was named Ridge Wood Farms by the Fruehauf’s, I was enthralled. Two staircases, a kitchen with a pastry counter, what! Loads of charm! Poor Mark, he was doomed to hear about it unceasingly and I mean unceasingly!
We bought the house, knowing that there would be a few things to fix and tweak and that some day, with the townships approval of course, we would convert it into a Bed and Breakfast! And we have. The suites are luxuriously outfitted for comfort and relaxation. We want you to stay and enjoy the house and the area. Should you choose to go venturing, we are close to Oxford, Lake Orion, Romeo and Rochester. Come start your journey with us. Let me take you on a tour of the house…
During this unprecedented time, Mark and I are working to keep current with the Governors executive orders, CDC guidelines and medical professional’s advice regarding COVID 19.
We miss all of you our past guests and regret not being able to see your and meet our new guests who have had to cancel. We miss all that being an Innkeeper entails but your safety as well as ours is our first and foremost priority.
We have put even stricter “best practices” in place regarding our already meticulous housekeeping as well as the guidelines of social distancing and sanitation practices. We will not be able to have our common use pantry available but will make it a priority for you to be able to have coffee/tea and beverages at will in your suite with a carafe of coffee and single use cream and sugar in your suite.
When we do reopen, we will have hand sanitizer available in all suites, as well as near the entry way doors for your use. We will wipe down all hard surfaces not only before and after your stay but during as well. Mark and I take our temperature every day and will continue to do that until the “all clear” is given.
We will serve you our delicious breakfast in-suite unless you prefer to dine in the dining room and then we will do an assigned time if there are more than one suite booked during your stay.
We hope to have our “August House” up and running soon which is a stand-alone 2-bedroom house on the property offering even more privacy and space to guests choosing to stay more than one night.
We will encourage you to enjoy the pool and veranda when the time comes but take into consideration and abide by the 6 feet apart rule.
The Polly Ann trail is a short drive away to parking for getting on the trail and offers miles of walking/biking/running space. We encourage you to experience it.
Until the time when we can more safely open, which we pray is very soon, stay safe and well and please book a time away for yourselves here. We look forward to making your stay enjoyable as well as safe!
Blessings to you and your families,
Mark and Jan Smith
All of the suites have a king size bed, wifi access and TV’s. In the summer you are free to enjoy the front porch, and the pool. The grounds are yours to enjoy year round. We have 14 acres of tamed and untamed land.
We are located in beautiful Leonard Michigan in Northern Oakland County. Located minutes away from Lake Orion, Oxford, Metamora, Romeo and Rochester. Just far enough to have that country feel, but close enough to some great activities .

March at the Maple Cove B&B
Let’s do some exploring around the area surrounding Maple Cove B&B. March to me is the longest month of winter. You get a sneak peak of spring with an unseasonably warm day and then it gets snatched away with a brisk freezing breeze and another 4 inches of snow. To combat the lethargy that comes […]
