Nothern Michigan glamping company pleads no contest to embezzling

Bella Solviva

A Northern Michigan company will be sentenced next month for cheating people out of money for a glamping experience, which is expensive upscale camping.

Antrim County company Bella Solviva has pleaded no contest to larceny by conversion.

The Michigan Attorney General said the company took money from people claiming it would build a ‘glamping’ resort in Antrim county. They never built the resort and never refunded customers’ money. The company could face fines and restitution.

Company owners were sentenced last month to two years of probation and restitution of more than $29,000.

Bella Solviva’s sentencing is scheduled for December 13.
