Overview

Harbor Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 in beds)

Come explore the relaxing comfort of the crisp fresh air and sparkling artesian water of Harbor Springs. Within the city limits are two beaches, three world-class marinas, boutiques, galleries, entertainment and distinctive restaurants. This beautiful and spacious home (1,900 sq. ft.) located on the west bluff is within walking distance to all of it.

House comes with baby gates at top and bottom of stairs as well as front porch. Highchair, crib and diaper changing pad for top of dresser. Nearly all power outlets have covers. We do not provide car seats.

Start your morning off right by enjoying a cup of coffee while sitting on the front porch watching sail boats on Little Traverse Bay. Take a short drive to Pond Hill Farm to feed the pigs, and buy some amazing canned goods. Then stop by Bluff Gardens and pick up some fresh fruit for your lunch. Later in the afternoon, you can stroll down the waterfront, admiring the magnificent turn-of-the-century summer cottages or ride your bikes into town for an ice cream and view the many boats along the pier. Harbor Springs offers both formal and casual dining, or head out to one of our many fresh markets and have a barbeque on the back deck. And all of this is just 5 miles from Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands!!

Also visit nearby Petoskey and Charlevoix for dining, shopping and exploring galore . . . or you can just sit back and do nothing but simply enjoy a little piece of paradise. Happiness is Harbor Springs!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went skiing with 6 friends and this house worked perfectly for us. Quick trip to the ski hills and the house was a really nice set up for our group to enjoy. We are already talking about coming back next year for a similar trip. Thanks so much

Lovely time was had by all!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this lovely house for a long weekend with my parents and two teenagers. We had a lovely time. Everyone had their own room. The views were beautiful. We went snowshoeing and cross country skiing at Boyne Highlands, enjoyed wine tasting and the guys went snowmobiling, all within 15 minutes of the house. The homeowners were lovely to work with.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Longview! The owner was so nice and accommodating even with a super last minute booking. The house is adorable, clean and very well maintained. We had a group of 9 (7 adults/2 kids) and had plenty of space for everyone. The house has easy access to local skiing including Boyne Highlands (15 min) and Boyne Mountain (45 min). The town of Harbor Springs is a quaint little town with a good selection of restaurants and little shops. We hope to return in the summer and experience Harbor Springs in warmer weather! Thanks so much for a great winter ski retreat!

Wonderful Family ski vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a wonderful family ski vacation. The house had all the amenities we needed, and was very comfortable and charming. Very nice linens and great kitchen tools. It is just a few blocks from downtown Harbor Springs, which made it great to walk into town for donuts and coffee. The homeowners were extremely easy to work with. The caretaker made himself available immediately with any issues we had. We had a family of four and a dog and there was plenty of room for all.

The views were awesome we had great sunrises outside our bedroom window. We hope to return to this home soon!

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our trip and our stay in this wonderful home and I must say everything was excellent! The home is very cozy and fully equipped with everything you need from kitchen appliances to linens and a washer and dryer. Our family of four stayed with another family of four (Lana K.) and we were very comfortable, plenty of room for all. The kids loved the home. Further, the home is in very close proximity to town (Harbor Springs), ski resorts and downtown Petoskey with a great view of the lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home in addition to our stay in this wonderful part of Michigan and definitely plan on re-visiting. Lastly, we have a 16 month old and the house provides a high chair, crib and gate for the stairs (top and bottom) which made our stay even better! Very convenient! Thank you for the memories!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I love having the opportunity to share our good experience with this cottage! It was exceedingly clean, very comfortable, and well stocked with linens and kitchen appliances. I must mention again how comfortable we found the furniture to be. We sat out on the front porch to enjoy the view almost daily, as a baby gate is provided that kept our dogs safe. The well-lit living room was spacious enough for a full-sized sofa, multiple chairs and side tables, and a wide pathway. In fact, we didn't feel cramped in any part of the cottage. We especially appreciated having a downstairs bedroom and full bath in addition to those upstairs. Amenities include a full-sized washer and dryer. The owner was a very responsive and a pleasure to work with.

The location is perfect! Staying on the Bluff allowed us to feel "in-town," while offering an enjoyable view. The neighborhood is quiet and well kept. Walking the dogs throughout the area was tranquil and untaxing. The cottage is not far from the IGA and even closer to the shops and restaurants in town. The walk downhill to town is an easy one, with benches dotting the sidewalk along the way. We experienced no cell phone coverage gaps at the cottage, which was not the case when we stayed elsewhere on previous trips to Harbor Springs. The wi-fi was reliable and easily accessible should it ever need rebooting. For those of you who count steps; there are only a few to enter from the front, and just a few more to enter from the back porch. Both entrances have solidly sturdy handrails.

Bottom line: We decided we could LIVE in this cottage comfortably. It will be the cottage of first choice for our next trip to Harbor Springs.
