At the Culinary Vegetable Institute, when a guest chef visits us for an overnight stay (or more), we pull out all the stops to provide him or her with an unforgettable luxury experience—and now that exclusive, immersive experience is available to you.
You can easily book your dates through AirBnB and, as the sole lodger, you will have access to a broad suite of amenities, with contactless check-in availability. In fact, if you choose, you can have an entirely contact-less experience.
This gorgeous, spacious suite is rustic yet modern, crafted from the oak, sycamore, and walnut forests surrounding The Chef’s Garden on the Huron River. It’s perfect for someone wanting a personal retreat or for a couple seeking to escape from the hustle and bustle of life.
One guest recently told us that, because he travels for work 200 days a year, anything resembling a hotel simply reminds him of work, so it doesn’t qualify as a getaway. Our unique farm stay suite, though, allowed him a chance for respite. Other clients thank us for the exceptional cleanliness of the suite.
Picture a king-sized bed, a jacuzzi, an indoor fireplace, air conditioning, a balcony overlooking rural beauty, and much more—and, to top it off, you have access to our gardens and grounds. Need some fresh herbs? Go pick them. Ready to stroll through nature? You can enjoy solitude alongside the birds and butterflies and take in the lovely aromas.
Upon your arrival, you’ll receive farm-fresh vegetables, harvested on the morning of your check-in date. A beautiful, thoughtfully curated farmhouse breakfast basket will be also provided for you to enjoy at your leisure the following morning. There’s also a kitchen in your suite for you to cook meals in and we will provide you with a bottle of complementary wine from our cellar upon your arrival. Premium cocktails and other wine selections are also available upon request.
Need to check in with work or family? We understand. You’ll have access to Wi-Fi along with a laptop-friendly workspace, pull-out couch, and a comfortable armchair.
Parking is free, and you check yourself in with a door code. Plus, you can lock your suite for privacy and safety.
We’re adding more and more options for guests to enjoy, which now include dinners, cooking classes, and an opportunity to be a beekeeper for a day. (At the Culinary Vegetable Institute, we tend our own bees and produce delicious honey.) If you’d like to add those experiences to your stay, just message us on AirBnB and we will book them with our culinary team.

“A magical experience at the CVI! Chefs Jamie and Tristan were so welcoming and generous with their time and expertise. We were absolutely overwhelmed with how special our stay was. For anyone looking for a unique agri-culinary experience, mixed with elegance and romance, this is your place. @culinaryvegetableinstitute—we loved it so much we’ll be back for my birthday in the Fall.” (Susan in July 2020)
