Located in the center of downtown, the apartment is ideally located across Bay Street from Little Traverse Bay (view, however, is onto Main Street), with restaurants and shopping at your doorstep.

Aficionados of the area, know there are romantic, elegant and secret places all around Harbor Springs.

After a vigorous day of boating (or skiing), swimming, hiking, (snow-shoeing),biking, golfing, tennis (at the waterfront, with lights for night play), shooting skeet (seriously) or whatever in the playlands of Emmet County, why not head for downtown civilization?

Walk along the Little Traverse Bay. Take in the amazing starry night sky and hope for a display of Northern Lights. Look forward to a relaxing evening. Prepare dinner at home in the unusually well-equipped kitchen or simply take the elevator down to street for surprisingly delightful restaurants. Don't forget to visit the museums and other shops.

My family has lived in Harbor Springs for nearly 100 years. I know this area well and have put many of my favorite places and activities on the map for you to enjoy.

SANDFORD BOYCE purchased this condo in 2010

My Grandmother spent the summer of 1923 in Northern Michigan because she had a very sick infant who needed fresh air and cool nights. The doctor had told Granny that her son might not make it thru the hot, pollen-laden summer heat of Louisville. Granny was so pleased with the climate and her child's return to health, that she bought a cottage that year and spent every summer in Harbor Springs until she died in 1983. My mother who was a teacher carried on the tradition.

1)Harbor Springs is charming and full of interesting shops and places to visit.

2) Reserved covered parking

3) Elevator from ground parking area to the 3rd. floor apartment.

4) across street from Gurney's Liquors!

5) 6 restaurants-Stafford's Pier;New York, Turkeys Cafe-pizza;Cornichous Two- omelets;Harbor Bar-great burgers;Chart Room-fish; all within 2 block area!!

6) Did I mention the Fudge Shop and Ice Cream Store next to the Liquor Store? Across Main St.

7) Try 'Wooly Bugger' for newspaper and coffee.

8) Free WiFi in apartment.

Harbor Springs heaven

  • 4 of 5
First of all, it's a beautiful condo located in a wonderful area, both in town and looking over the marina. Nice rooms, great sheets and nicely furnished. The main inconvenience was the wireless. I had work to do and it was unreliable at best. We had to be at home for someone from the cable company to come by and that didn't help matters. Second, there was a miscommunication on a cleaning midway through our stay and the person who came (causing me to leave) didn't actually do the work throughly. Another cleaner came which was good but meant leaving again. The number of times we had to speak with the homeowner was unfortunate.

Owner's Response: WIFI out is a big problem! Technician was there next day but failed to fix it. Later replaced splitter and I think this is permanent fix. As for Housekeeper issue, I mis-communicated to the guest that this was simply a mid-stay courtesy tidy-up.

Great location, lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 spent four days in Harbor Springs at this lovely apartment. The owner was more than attentive, both before and after our visit, making sure we had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. The apartment is prettier in person than it is in the pictures and the views from the large windows are spectacular--glimpses of both the bay and the bluffs, along with some great views of the downtown shops. The weather was cool and overcast during our stay, so we didn't get to use the beach at all, but it would have been a very quick walk to it from the building. Great restaurants, shops, ice cream places are all a quick walk away. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Excellent accommodations

  • 5 of 5
Great location, well equipped, beautiful decor and very accessible year round. Had to make same day arrangements as our other plans fell through when we couldn't get up the steep road because of the snow. Owner was very helpful and responsive. Enjoyed our stay thoroughly and the free bottle of wine is a nice touch! Highly recommended

Cozy, large 2 bedroom in great downtown location

  • 4 of 5
A group of 4 of us visited Sandy's place for a weekend getaway in early March. First impressions were great - cozy fireplace, comfy robes, long wooden dining table perfect for family dinners, open layout and multiple windows with gorgeous views of the water, downtown and houses on the bluff. It was very clean, smelled nice and temperature inside was just perfect. We were very surprised at how quiet the downtown area was, especially during the best ski season in Michigan history. It was sad that many businesses were closed for the winter, and there were not many people in town. But the basics were still covered - a great coffee shop and a wine and sandwich shop (yum!) were directly across the street and there is an IGA store just up the hill. And less than 20 minute drive to Nub's Nob! I can only imagine how fun and perfect this location would be in summer.

The only thing that could make this place even better is to better stock the kitchen with baking and cooking supplies. We had to improvise with baking because there were no oven dishes, there were limited number of pots for cooking dinner and unfortunately they don't stock a blender (and we really wanted to make hummers!)...but if you know in advance, it's easier to plan around.

Owner's Response: Did buy the Blender, so plan on mixing up your Margaritas and "Summer Hummers." However,as far as there being an ill-equipped kitchen, Please see photo #15. Kitchen is supplied with: 5 sauté and frying pans, 5 sauce and cooking pots,large steamer pot, cutting boards, toaster, food processor, electric waffle grill, coffee grinder & maker,electric tea pot, 4 baking sheets, 2 broiling pans, mixing bowls, measuring cup, plastic bags, plastic wrap , aluminum foil and too many utensils to mention. Also, I provide a limited number of spices, popcorn & oil, coffee beans, flour, oil and some other usable foodstuffs. May I add that there a barbecue tools in case you want to use the public grills located lakeside at Ford Park which is 2 blocks to the East.

Unique accommodations in Harbor Springs!

  • 5 of 5
During the thirty years we've been vacationing in the Little Traverse Bay area, we've rented a variety of condos and townhouses, ranging from good to great, but we've never stayed in a place quite like this condo. Being on the top floor of an historic building right in the heart of Harbor Springs and looking out on the village's quaint main street was a new experience for us. This condo is very spacious and luxurious with many features that we appreciated (the gas fireplace, the elevator, the covered parking space, the washer and dryer to name but a few). The property is very well-maintained and exactly as pictured on the website. Sandy Boyce is the most attentive and accessible owner that we have dealt with. We cannot recommend this condo enough.
