We began with a setting of pastoral beauty: a farm dating back to the early 20th century, now complete with a contemporary home, three barns, and mature fruit and hardwood trees. In 2009, we renovated the main house, using warm, inviting colors that echo the landscape and create a peaceful atmosphere, and in 2012 we completed the second phase of the renovation.
Each of our suites, as well as the third-floor viewing tower, provide unspoiled vistas of the garden, vineyards, and orchard surrounding the Inn. Guests are welcome to wander the property, peruse our library, relax in our spacious back yard or decks, or simply retreat to the peaceful environment of their own rooms. The Inn and its surroundings abound in quiet, beautiful settings where guests can explore and find themselves perfectly at home.
Tesoro Inn is open on weekends only (Friday and Saturday nights).
Les is a former chef and country club manager who has been delighting palates for 30 years. Now a Michigander, he grew up in Japan, Hong Kong, and Korea and has traveled extensively throughout Asia, Latin America, Canada, and Europe. Along with cooking, he enjoys photography, cycling, hiking, and reading.
Jane is a native of Michigan and a graduate of Kendall College of Art and Design. She has worked as an interior designer, artist, and potter. After converting one of the Inn’s barns to a clay studio, she is now creating abstract sculptures and other objects that reflect her personal process and the many cultures where she has traveled. In her spare time, she enjoys yoga, hiking, biking, cooking, gardening, reading, and walking her dog. Together, she and Les bring over 50 years of hospitality experience to the Inn.
