In 1967 we moved to the USA from Germany and in 1994 we made a dream come true and purchased our beach home on Lake Michigan. We enjoy spending time there and appreciate nature with woods, water, wildlife and tranquility, sitting on one of multiple decks.

The Owner purchased this house in 1994

The setting is unique, with 140' on Lake Michigan, the house sits on a dune, overlooking the beach and the water.

The serenity with beautiful surroundings make it possible to relax and enjoy nature and fresh air in the privacy of this setting.

We just completed our two week stay at this wonderful property. It has an unsurpassed view of sunsets over Little Traverse Bay, and is fully appointed/furnished with everything that anyone could possibly need. The home was immaculate, the showers were great, the beds were very comfortable, and the wood fireplace (with all supplies included) provided for a very warm/cozy stay.

It is located only 7 miles from downtown Harbor Springs, and the drive there on the Tunnel of Trees was absolutely gorgeous, as Fall colors were peaking. It was, in fact, a ride to look forward to each and every day.

The whole experience was invigorating and peaceful. We would highly recommend this property to anyone considering a vacation in the Harbor Springs/Petosky area.

A WONDERFUL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here the first week in September, with three adults, and we were absolutely delighted with this choice! The kitchen has new very high quality appliances and great equipment, the decks all around the main floor and off the top floor and down to the beach were amazing places to relax, talk, enjoy the views of Lake Michigan and the sunsets. Although there are a few houses nearby, you do not hear or see any of them from the house - all is very quiet except for the sound of the waves on the beach! I highly recommend this house to anyone interested in a wonderful venue, and great location right on the "Tunnel of Trees", convenient to go to Mackinac Island, Cross Village, Harbor Springs, Petoskey and explore the area. Really we had a wonderful time. The Soeding's house is extremely clean, well organized, everything is provided, WiFi connection was fast and good, with nice ability to separate the people staying to the upstairs and main floor for nighttime and bathrooms. Great water quality, great washer and dryer, everything was beyond our expectations!

SPECTACULAR VIEW!!

  • 5 of 5
This Lake Michigan home was wonderful. First of all, the drive from the town of Harbor Springs to the house is just beautiful, woods and vistas of Little Traverse Bay. The house is surrounded by trees with a spectacular view of Lake Michigan. With a gin and tonic in hand, we sat out on the deck and watched the magnificent sunsets. The beach was very nice too, we could walk for miles. The water and shoreline were unbelievably clean. One note, the shoreline and shallow water were a bit rocky.
The accommodations were very comfortable and clean. The house was equipped with everything you need, organized and labeled. If you don't want to cook, there are tons of places to eat out in the surrounding area.
Overall, this is a perfect place to vacation in northern Michigan.

STAY HERE AND BE HAPPY

  • 5 of 5
My family has rented houses or apartments over the internet in several states and we've generally had very good luck. This place, though, is the jackpot. Very well furnished, very comfortable, and a very hospitable feel. It's like a beautiful tree house - surrounded by forest on three sides and facing the water on the fourth.

CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN!

Can't Wait to Return!
  • 5 of 5
My four children and I stayed at the Soeding's Sandcastle to celebrate the first week of summer--no more commutes, athletic practices, homework projects--just lazy days on the beach, pizza suppers at Turkey's, and reading late into the night while listening to the waves roll in. We've rented cottages before, and knew that we wanted to be near Harbor Springs and on the lake. Having rented before, though, and suffering from dust allergies, we also knew it's hard to find something that is clean and well-maintained and feels cared-for. The Soeding's Sandcastle was perfect. The location was ideal (I could run up and down Lower Lake Shore and feel perfectly safe, Johan's donuts and the delicious ribs at the New York were just a 10 minute drive) and the cottage was clean--really clean--and well-maintained. The photos are completely accurate (although you it's even more charming in person). My children and I had a lovely time and can't wait to return!

A HIDDEN GEM!

  • 5 of 5
A fantastic location, very quiet & secluded with superb Lake Michigan sunset views. My parents came over to visit from the UK and I wanted to find somewhere right on the Lake Michigan shore to give them that lakefront vacation experience. I have to say that Soeding's Sandcastle fitted the bill exactly! In total, there were 6 of us including our 1 & 3 year old daughters and the accommodation fitted us perfectly. The highlight for me was sitting out on the fantastic deck off the main living space, watching the amazing sunsets with the friendly hummingbird in close attendance! The beach is 66 steps down from the deck (with some convenient stopping off points!) and across a small grassy dune. The week we were there we didn't see a single person on the beach, even during our long beach walks. Approximately a 10 minute walk along the beach heading North, the beach widens out and the rocks disappear, so swimming etc becomes much easier.

In addition, the owners were a delight to deal with and stayed in touch via email offering suggestions as to things to do, a nice touch! I'm looking forward to returning many times to Soeding's Sandcastle in the future, please keep it on the rental market!
