Conversations with Amy Huth

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amy Huth. 

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I am originally from Northern Michigan and my husband is from Missouri. I grew up playing on many lakes as a kid and I’ve always dreamed about actually living on a lake! We were talking to some friends about what our future would look like after our son graduated and our daughter got married. Our answer was to always be on the water! Within a couple of days that same friend called back and said there was a piece of property on a lake his mother-in-Law lived on for many years that he wanted to show us, it was on Lake Holly. The property itself was quite neglected. However, there was so much potential! 

At first, we wanted to keep it as just a little place where we could go to have dinner with friends, water ski, fish, kayak, and simply enjoy the lake on the weekends. 

Little by little we were working in the yard, building a new dock and adding to it. This was such a good distraction for our whole family during COVID. 

We had a couple of friends over for dinner and they encouraged us to list it on Airbnb! 

We listed it for the first time in January 2021 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It has not been a smooth road, but we saw the potential as this being our family’s legacy. The first seven months we spent creating a lengthy list of projects that we wanted done, not only for our own family and friends to enjoy but also if we had guests stay-we wanted them to be able to relax and enjoy it just as much as we have! 

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
My degree is in Business Communications, and after college, I worked with Corporate America then we began our family and I transitioned into a stay-at-home Mom. I have always been told I had the gift of hospitality with a dream of one day owning a bed-and-breakfast. The Airbnb opportunity really fulfilled those dreams of expanding my gifts to bless others and enable them to relax and enjoy lake life. 

Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
The Huth Lakehouse will always be a work in progress! We appreciate the grace given as we continue to improve our property. We are so thankful for the comments, referrals, and the wonderful reviews to have us reach “Super Host status!”
