HARBOR SPRINGS LAKE MICHIGAN COTTAGE - SECLUDED BEACH, SPECTACULAR VIEW

Harbor Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Our cottage is located between Harbor Springs and Good Hart on M-119 ('Tunnel of Trees'). Built in 2005 this professionally designed/furnished cottage has over 2600 finished square feet on one floor.

It was designed to take advantage of the spectacular Lake Michigan views from nearly every room. There are four bedrooms, three bathrooms, living room, dining room, spacious kitchen, laundry room with lockers, screened porch and large deck.

The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and also has a master retreat with a futon providing an additional sleeping area with a door leading to the deck. The second bedroom has two twin beds. The third bedroom has a twin bed with a twin trundle and the fourth bedroom has a queen bed. The deck and screen porch have wonderful views of Lake Michigan.

A staircase leads to 100 feet of secluded sandy Lake Michigan beach frontage. The property has four acres of woods for hiking and exploring. Boyne Highlands (World Class Golf), Nubs Nob(Best Skiing in the Midwest), Cross Village (Legs Inn), and the sand dunes at Wilderness State Park (Sturgeon Bay) are all within a 20-25 minute scenic drive. Additionally, M-119 is excellent for cycling.

A 50% deposit is required and must be received within 10 days of reservation. The balance along with a $300 security deposit to cover damages and excessive cleaning is due 30 days prior to arrival.

BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
Our family rented the home in August. The photos provided here do not do the property justice. Being on elevated land, the view of the water looking down makes the water seem somehow larger. Very nice. The sunsets were awesome. We were there at the right time to see the Perseid meteors at night. The skies were perfect and dark for star-viewing. I regretted not bringing a telescope up.

Certainly, there are a lot of stairs to get down to the beach and water, but we were all able to handle those. Even my energetic 4.5 yo girl tired on the way up. You do want to pace yourself. But, the guys took 2 mile jogs each morning and enjoyed the stress of tacking on a stair-descent and climb at the end of each jog.

The beach is fantastic to walk up and down and look for stones and watch sunsets. It's not a great swimming beach, due to all the medium sized, smooth, slippery rocks lining the bottom. The water is cold. If you walk out a ways, you'll reach some sand. We did take one long, body-healing swim there one day, but most of us did not return for swimming in that water after that. However, Petoskey State Park is not far away and has a great swimming experience, if you need that. That was fantastic.

There was plenty of room for the 11 of us. We brought an extra TV up, though we really didn't watch much while there. We had bonfires almost every night. It's very nice lounging outside at any time of day.

We played some tennis in Harbor Springs and walked around there and in Petoskey. If you stay here, you MUST visit Cross Village and eat at the Legg's Inn. Whether or not you like Polish food, it's just great food. I'm still thinking of the meal we had there. Everyone wanted to try everyone's else's food, and it was all good.

The homeowner was very nice and helpful before, during and after the stay.

WONDERFUL WEEK

  • 4 of 5
we really enjoyed our stay--the house was VERY clean, and well equipped,especially for young children.
our favorite spots were the deck with great views and the screened porch--the mud room is FANTASTIC,we want one at home!!
we really didn't mind the steps to the water but the beach was not really workable for our family to swim, the children did enjoy hunting for shells--
we would have appreciated more overhead fans in the main rooms, it was very hot--also this is not a house for more than one family-the queen bedroom is really an office space off the living area
we found the lack of cell service ,satellite, and wi fi difficult and isolating with small children
the owners were very helpful, answered all questions-we loved the area and would like to return.

GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We had plenty of room to spread out in. House was nicely equipped with firewood, charcoal, paper products etc... Would recommend this home to anyone. The only drawback for us was the long staircase to the water. The view was breathtaking.
Anyone who stays here will not be dissapointed- We would stay here again in a second.
Thanks for a great house that made a great family vacation!
