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

My Grandpa built this house back in the 50's. It's been in the family the whole time. I bought this house when I was 20 years old. 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 considered a destination for the wealthy, we'd like to keep it affordable so average people can vacation too! Our house is nothing 'fancy'! Keep that in mind as you drive past all the big, fancy houses on Main Street!

What makes this house unique

One of the main 'unique benefits' or our house is, WE ALLOW ANIMALS! However, our 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!

My boyfriend and two dogs visited this charming cottage in September. We had a wonderful time walking,swimming,and visiting all the interesting places around the area. The cottage was charming and cozy. Linda and Abe were very helpful. We would love to return.

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!

The sprinkler system scheduled to turn on at 5:00 a.m. Please feel free to help out in any of the flower gardens or window boxes! There is plenty of parking in the driveway for a boat or snow mobile trailer and guests! The laundry room is a good size. both a washer & dryer. We do supply the soap and fabric softener
