About The Owner

I'm an active duty Air Force pilot from Michigan, husband of a wonderful lady, and father of two smart boys who hopes to one day retire to our house in Harbor Springs. We enjoy our home away from 'home' when leave allows, and my family has a place of stability during the lengthy deployments.

Why The Owner chose Harbor Springs

Harbor Springs is a wonderful community in the truest sense of the word. The people are warm, genuine, and welcoming. There may not be a better place on earth to enjoy four distinct, varied, and beautiful seasons. The long, sunny summer days and natural air conditioning of Little Traverse Bay. The uncrowded, undeveloped sandy beaches. The smell of fudge. Fall colors that would leave a New England leaf-peeper breathless, and miles of empty roads and paths by which to enjoy them. Three months of real winter, complete with downtown sleigh rides, a great town sledding hill, a municipal ice rink, and the best skiing in the midwest. Watching the world wake in spring. Marvelling at the wildflower colors on display while out for a morning walk in one of Harbor's nature preserves, then passing through clouds of lilac on the walk back through town. Mackinac Island. The Little Traverse Wheelway bike path. Wilderness, Petoskey, and Burt Lake State Parks. Fishing the Bear River or Walloon Lake. Sailing Little Traverse Bay. Hiking the North Country Trail. Biking the Tunnel of Trees. Headlands dark sky park. Golfing some of the finest courses in the nation. The opportunities to enjoy the unspoiled outdoors are practically endless. This is the place I wish I'd spent my childhood, and I'm hoping to give that experience to my two young boys.

What makes this house unique

You won't find another property that combines the solitude and privacy of the North woods while offering such convenience of proximity to town and recreational opportunities. We love the feel of the wood stove in the winter. The house has such a warm feel, and lounging with a book under the skylight in the loft is so relaxing. I love to have my morning coffee on the upper balcony, listening to the songbirds and looking for wildlife in the woods. We particularly like that we can park the car and access nearly all of our favorite activities by bicycle.

Fantastic Get-Away Home!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a comfortable home in the woods of northern michigan for our 5 grown children and two of their spouses along with us to relax, do some sight-seeing, and just enjoy some time together without being on top of each other in hotel rooms. This home was perfect and the price was right too!! The owners and care takers were so pleasant and quick to respond and answer any questions. The home was spacious for the nine of us, very clean and well stocked. There was no need to run to the store for anything we may have forgotten. The wooded surroundings were therapeutic as well! We loved being close to the quaint downtown of Harbor Springs. The American Spoon store was our favorite! We would recommend this home to our friends and others as well.

Sister's Weekend

Sister's Weekend
  • 5 of 5
This house was just awesome for us. Everything was clean, plenty of linens, extra items in the cabinets if we needed it. Perfect assortment of toys for the little one. And the house was big enough that we were able to hide from each other as needed (we are sisters you know), yet still have plenty of room to be together. Would definitely come back to this home, because that's what it felt like...home!

Cosy Retreat

  • 5 of 5
What a great place! Up to date, clean, lots of space with a log cabin feel. Went away for a ski weekend with couples and had a great time. Minutes from the slopes and great to go back to such a cosy place.

Roomy and many extras!

  • 5 of 5
What a treat! Everything in the house was in working order. Description super-accurate. I would also add that there was a crockpot at our disposition as well as a nice fire pit. Laundry machines as well. Owner extremely helpful in providing extra info on hikes and activities as well as answering all questions. Very neat and spacious. You won't regret it.

The location was good for us to participate in many local events and play some wonderful golf courses. The owner suggested several places to visit and we enjoyed each one. The weather was surprisingly beautiful and we really enjoyed our time here.

Wonderful vacation for grandparents and grandkids

  • 4 of 5
This cottage is deceptively close to downtown Harbor Springs, but still has plenty of room to feel away from it all while playing amongst the pines. The kitchen was fully stocked with every kind of utensil and pot imaginable, and we could have used a new towel every day and never used up all the available ones. Truly everything you will need for your stay. Bring your own DVD's and MP3 player because there is no cable or satelite in the unit, but there is a TV and DVD player (or enjoy a week away from everything!) The lack of TV turned out to be a blessing because we spent our time enjoying our grandchildren and the wonderful location and house! The Harbor Springs Zorn BEACH became our everyday swimming beach, and is a two minute drive or lovely walk from this property. The owners were responsive, helpful, professional and honest! Our security deposit was returned within a week. All around a great deal and a memorable week !
