Charming Little Cabin
Submitted: June 22, 2012
Stayed: June 2012
We were looking for a peaceful, quiet and private setting and we certainly found it! Just a short distance from downtown Harbor Springs this little gem is tucked away in a very wooded area but conveniently located to the local attractions. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck with morning coffee and an evening with a bottle of wine from the new winery down the road at Pond Hill Farm. We were surprised to find the kitchen stocked with coffee and tea as well as foil, baggies, etc. I was very concerned the first night we arrived--I was certain the monsoon type rain would wash out the dirt road to the cabin. We proceeded cautiously out late the next morning--no problem at all! We slept in the upstairs loft. Despite 90 degree weather and no air conditioning the room had great cross ventilation and we were quite comfortable on what appeared to be a newer bed with lots of pillows.I did find the stairs to the loft to be a bit frightening. I have never been fond of steep, open stairs, but as long as you take them slowly you should have no problem. Our overall experience was very close to perfect with the exception of one thing. We have stayed in many rustic cabins (more rustic than this one) as well as tent camping but never encountered so many flying and crawling insects. Nothing really disgusting, just a lot of house flies, moths, beetles. The cabin could probably use some cauk, new screens, weatherstrip around the doors, etc. Despite this one negative we would consider staying here again next time we visit Harbor Springs.
Owner's Response: We really appreciate the kind words about the cabin and hope it gives prospective renters an idea of what to expect. We continually try to upgrade for comfort and efficiency as well as simply to make it more interesting.
The queen size bed is in fact new this year.
We've had in the past the odd issue with insects, often after a big rain, ie "monsoon type," where they may crawl out of the ground looking for dry land. We hope that a renter will let us know at the time so we can help improve the situation. We absolutely want to ensure that your stay is a comfortable and happy one.
