Harbor Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Ski all day and come home to relax in town where you can walk to all that the town of Harbor Springs has to offer. This super charming home is located on a quiet street with very little traffic, and is the perfect 'Up North' getaway at a reasonable price!

This is a very comfortable 1,450 square foot home w/ 3 Bedrooms and 2 Baths. There are two second floor bedrooms & one on the 1st floor. There is a wonderful wrap around porch for relaxing, enjoying your morning coffee or evening cocktail, reading,board games or just watching the deer. Kids will enjoy the big back yard for playing & ROASTING MARSHMALLOWS IN THE FIRE PIT! Just about everything is within a short walk or bike ride away. The area is quiet and safe - a perfect location for you and your family! Enjoy preparing meals in the well stocked kitchen.

Awesome skiing, golf, biking & boating are right here! Nubs Nob and Boyne ski resorts are just 10 minutes away. Ski all day and sleep in town to enjoy the local flavor, shopping & restaurants. Great restaurants include The New York, The Pier, Pointer Room, Turkeys, The Depot, Mustang Wendy's & The Fish. Wonderful shopping is just steps away, yet you are on a quiet private street with little traffic.

Enjoy the unique charm offered by a vacation in beautiful Harbor Springs, Michigan. Nestled along the deepest harbor in the Great Lakes, lies the charming waterfront community of Harbor Springs, Michigan. Harbor Springs has been a bustling tourist destination since before the turn of the century, it offers an abundance of natural beauty and four seasons of outdoor activities. You will enjoy an array of cultural and culinary attractions that continually delight visitors as well as provide an uncomplicated tranquility to residents. Stroll the quiet sidewalk lined streets and take in an abundance of turn of the century Victorian homes, walk into town to enjoy the one-of-a-kind stores and restaurants, enjoy a swim in the cool clean waters of Lake Michigan, or take a bike ride through the tunnel of trees.

A wonderful and convenient home in the heart of Harbor Springs you can WALK TO THE BEACH & SHOPPING! 3 BLOCKS FROM THE BEACH, MAIN STREET, DOCKS, TENNIS, & RESTAURANTS!!

SNOW SKIING: Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands are a 10 minute drive from here! CROSS COUNTRY SKIING is available at Nubs and Boyne as well as Birchwood (about 5 minutes away) and many other areas.

GOLF: There are many golf courses nearby: Harbor Point, Little Traverse Bay Golf Course, Boyne, Chestnut Valley, and many many more!

BOATING: You can bring your own boat and put in just a few blocks from this house and enjoy wonderful days on Little Traverse Bay - fishing, sailing, water skiing, tubing or wake boarding. If available, you can leave the boat in the water at the public docks - they operate on a first come/first serve basis. There are cruises on The Pointer to the sights from the water. As far as I know, there are no boat rentals available in HarborSprings.

BIKING: Northern Michigan is ledgendary for it's biking. Bring your own bikes or rent one just a block from the house. There is serious and not-so-serious mountain biking close by, as well as some of the most scenic roads for road biking...or just cruise the area and enjoy the sights.

PRICING: The pricing section of this website is a bit confusing, so let me explain. I rent only by the week in the summers - June 15 to Sept 15. It is $1,995 per week, with a premium added for July 4th, Regatta Week, Memorial Day and Labor Day. The weeks from December 20 to Jan 6 are also premium weeks. Off season I rent by the week or weekend with a three day minimum. The monthly rate is only offered for longer term off season rentals. Ski Season: I offer the full season at a very very good rate and I can explain this in more detail at your request.

About Robin Pearsall

I live in Richmond, Virginia but have been summering in Harbor Springs for all of my 54 years!

Robin Pearsall purchased this house in 2004

Why Robin Pearsall chose Harbor Springs

This is positively the best location! My children could walk or ride their bikes to town, walk to the beach, swimming, sailing school, tennis, etc. The porch 'makes' this house!

What makes this house unique

Hands down it is the location and the wrap around porch!

Good for skiing with family

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here last week. Owner was very accomodating for our last minute request (one day notice!) and got the house ready for us. The kids liked the room with the bunks - they all stayed in there and had a slumber party. It is a short walk to town and the kids liked the big Christmas tree in town. Master bedroom really is small, but we only slept in there so it didn't matter. Loved that mattress in the master bedroom! I would recommend this house for families or even a weekend trip for a couple.

You wont be disappointed

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I chose this house based on the suggestion of a friend who had also rented this house in the past. They told us to expect a very accommodating home that was convenient, comfortable and charming. I'm happy to report that all of that was true and more. The more was that we really enjoyed meeting the neighbors and being able to read the paper and drink our morning coffee on the porch. I highly recommend renting this place if you have a trip planned to Harbor Springs. We waited too long and found that she was booked for most of the summer already,

You won't be disappointed

Great time in Harbor Springs

  • 5 of 5
The home owner was very helpful as we planned a last minute visit. She gave us good tips on the area and local shops. The house was very clean and laid out well for us and our kids. We really enjoyed sitting on the large porch at night and having a bottle of wine. We would rent this home again.

Just great!

  • 5 of 5
Our family and in-laws shared this home for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The set up of this home is perfect for a family and delivered on everything promised. The living and dining rooms had enough seating for dinner for everyone. The first floor bedroom is small, but the owner described it as such in the ad. My in-laws used that room and they were fine with it. When we were not indoors we were out on the porch and children were in the yard. It was a very nice home and we would go back again.

RENTERS BEWARE

  • 1 of 5
Rented cottage for 1 week- checked out after 48 hrs. Cottage was not suitable for a family or incoming renters. Spent the first 24 hrs cleaning. Listing description and photos were not accurate. There were mouse traps along the foundation of the cottage, aluminum foil stuck in the kitchen floor to keep them out. Owner advised us that the previous renters had two families in the cottage and left it a mess. Not the problem of incoming renters. Checked family into secound cottage for the week.

Owner's Response: I have been expecting this review from this renter for a while. Let me start by saying that much of what is says is blatantly false. The family arrived as usual on a Saturday. On Sunday morning he called to complain that he had felt the need to re-clean the floors. I was very apologetic and of course offered to sent the cleaning crew back over to the house immediately. He said "no" and that he was just calling to let me know this. I checked with the cleaning crew who has been cleaning between renters for years and they said they had of course cleaned the house and HAD mopped the floors (twice) before Troy's arrival. The next thing I know, on Monday morning I receive a call from the renter saying that he was leaving and checking out. Immediately I again offered to send a crew back and even to send a different cleaning service to the house, and he again did not accept my offer. Unfortunately, he gave me no opportunity to resolve his problem. No one ever wants to end a rental this way, and in 10 years I have never had anything like this happen, so my record speaks for itself. I have told Troy repeatedly that there are no mouse traps on the property. He ignored this and wrote it in the review anyway. There are small black sealed boxes filled about every 10 to 20 feet around the perimeter of the house. They are filled with a material that smells bad to chipmunks and squirrels and are designed to keep them from living under the house. No one else has ever even commented on them. I have been renting this house for 10 years and have never had an incident like this. My ratings have been 5 star ratings in the past. Most of my weeks are filled with repeat renters which speaks for itself. This is a 110 year old house and has the charm of a 110 year old house. That being said, a 110 year old house is 110 years old, not new. Thanks for taking the time to read this! I invite you to call me with questions - take a look at the photos - they speak for themselves.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
This is our third year staying at this house in town. We have stayed at other houses but this is our favorite simply because of the location, convenience, and THE FRONT PORCH! The owner added a bonfire pit in the back yard last year and we used that all the time. She has always made us feel at home in the house. It is a great house for children because of the yard and quiet street so I never had to worry about them.
