About Linda or Abe Thiessen

My name is Linda. I am married to Abe Thiessen for 9 years now! We have 2 beautiful daughters! Amelia and Grace! We currently live in Charlevoix, MI.

Linda or Abe Thiessen purchased this house in 1987

Why Linda or Abe Thiessen chose Harbor Springs

I bought this house when I was 20 years old. It's been in the family since my Grandpa built it. When I had to move to Charlevoix for work, I didn't want to sell the house. We decided to turn it into a vacation rental. We don't have a lot of money. We are not trying to 'make' money off of it. We just need it to pay for itself in order to keep it! We like to keep the price down so EVERYONE can enjoy Harbor Springs! Although Harbor Springs is known for it 'money', we'd like to keep it affordable so average people can vacation too!

What makes this house unique

The location is everything! Our house is located just 2 blocks from down town. Located behind the Holy Childhood Church, you can faintly hear the church bells in the morning! Close enough to town to walk to dinner, church and the beach. Yet far enough out to be quiet and relaxing!

Charming, clean and great location in Harbor Sprin

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 15-month-old daughter and pug thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Harbor Springs. The house is perfect for a small family, with everything you need for a vacation. A short walk or bike ride away is downtown Harbor Springs with wonderful shops, restaurants, beach, etc.

The home is very clean, with laundry, dishwasher, microwave, etc. to really make it feel like your home away from home. Linda was also extremely helpul! We plan on staying there again in the future!

Affordable near downtown Harbor Springs, MI

  • 4 of 5
Not the Ritz but a very comfortable 2 bedroom rental just a few blocks from downtown Harbor Springs set near homes worth a half million$ and higher. Very nice remodeled bath and comfy queen bed off-set it's tiny but serviceable kitchen and somewhat needed future remodeling projects. A second cable equipped TV in the master bedroom would be nice, but just enjoying the evening's peace and quiet was enough for our short stay. We really enjoyed reading out in the private brick patio area that adjoins an immense wooded area. Our 8# dog loved all the walking routes nearby, plus her ego got boosted by "scaring" a deer out of the home's backyard :o)
Bottom line is we definitely liked staying in this cute home A LOT more than just having a motel room for about the same price, so we're planning on returning here again this time next year!

Very cozy and quiet..

  • 5 of 5
We loved this little house! Our family of 4 stayed in this home for just over week. It was very cozy and homey. The house was well stocked, and we were able to find everything we needed. It is even nicer and bigger than the pictures suggest. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quaint and cozy place to stay. Just a 5 minute walk into downtown Harbor, but also on the edge of Glenn Drive, which is a beautiful wooded neighborhood, great for quiet nature walks!

Cute Little Place - Perfect Fit for Us

  • 4 of 5
Weekend Soccer Tournament for our daughter and needed a place to stay that would allow us to bring our little dog. Found this cute, accommodating spot on BringFido.com that fit our needs perfectly - and at a very reasonable price. Thank you for allowing us to use your home! :)

Unpretentious, Clean, Well Stocked, Convenient

  • 5 of 5
We were pleasantly surprised to find this little house for our spur of the moment, short ski vacation to Nubs Nob. Three teen boys and two adults shared the space without cramping each others' style. The piped gas line for the outdoor grill, laundry room, modern bathroom, cable, flat screen tv, and wi-fi were amenities we appreciated. The owner, Linda, immediately responded to all questions with solutions. We would recommend staying here to all of our friends and family. Definitely a 5 star for our needs.

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Harbor Springs and loved staying at this home. It was the perfect size for the two of us and offered everything we needed. It was a quick walk into town where we were able to enjoy some of the local shops. We admired the view of the water while walking and discussed returning in the summer with some family. The drive into Petoskey was quick and also offered beautiful views of the water.

We can't wait to return!
