The Innkeepers

Meet Ty Maxon, Rachel Winslow and Hank the Innkeeper Cat

Ty Maxon & Rachel Winslow

Ty is a singer-songwriter and guitarist. He’s released several albums of original songs over the years under his full name, Ty Maxon. He is also an artist who creates intricate pen & ink style drawings of wild life. You can even find a few of his prints available in the gift shop!

As well as being an avid reader and burgeoning gardener, Rachel is an accomplished photographer who specializes in analog photography. She has shot album covers and press photos for countless bands in the Chicago music scene as well as taught film photography workshops. Rachel has lived in many different places but has always dreamt of calling Michigan home.

Hank was rescued in the summer of 2019. He loves his new life as an innkeeper cat – especially greeting guests and receiving head scratches & belly rubs.
Most evenings, you can find Ty, Rachel and Hank on the front porch playing guitar, reading a good book, and enjoying the view.
As Ty and Rachel have been slowly working their way around our beautiful area – they’ve created a fantastic guide to some of their favorite food & drinks, hikes, and things to do in Leelanau County.
