Pine Hollow Institute

Pine Hollow is a northern Michigan waterfront estate located on the shore of East Grand Traverse Bay near the village of Elk Rapids, Michigan.

In January 2014 Pine Hollow was donated to the newly formed nonprofit, Pine Hollow Institute. PHI's mission was to strive for healing people and Mother Earth by providing a peaceful, beautiful estate on the shore of Lake Michigan for solving global problems through creativity, inspiration, and compassion. From January 2014 to June 2015 PHI hosted meetings, retreats, fundraisers, and informational gatherings for many area nonprofit organizations.


In June 2015, with regrets, PHI withdrew its application for a special use permit as a Group Retreat with the Elk Rapids Township Planning Commission. Please refer to the news tab on this website for more information and history on Pine Hollow Institute. Thank you to the many people who have supported PHI's vision and work.
