Located on the Lake Michigan shoreline facing due west towards Beaver Island, this home is a true getaway. Enjoy views from every room, playing at the beach, hiking, long walks along the shore, world-class sunsets from the huge deck, dark starry night skies, in-town trips to Harbor Springs, Petoskey and Mackinac Island. Golf at Boyne is 20 minutes away. Enjoy the peacefulness of a private lake house with all the amenities of northern Michigan.
We lived in Chicago for 10 years, moved to Vieques, PR for 3 years, and then to Ann Arbor, MI. Growing up in Harbor Springs made us want to have a summer home in the area. I always loved the north coast, the tunnel of trees, and the water. The house is a blessing and we always feel so fortunate and peaceful every time we are there. We are excited to share it with you.
Laura Kirchner purchased this house in 2008
We fell in love with the house the moment we set foot on the deck. The views are breathtaking and the architecture of the house takes advantage of the site perfectly. The entire water side of the house is glass and every room has glass doors that open onto the porch. It is an open and livable space, yet still manages to be cozy and comfortable. We just love it.
It is a special piece of property because it sits on a bluff very close to the water. This gives it both the amazing views of being higher up, yet the water is still within yards of the house. The best of both worlds!
One of the best family vacations we've ever had! Design of home pay homage to the natural beauty of Lake Michigan and surrounding forest. Only minutes from several wonderful areas and the Tunnel of Trees Hwy (M-119) is magnificent. At times we felt like were were on a tropical island with soothing breezes and the sound of waves. Love the short private trail to the beach, relaxing with a morning coffee or enjoying the utter solitude of the beautiful sunsets. Lovely wildflowers and great stone work around the home. Thank you for sharing this magical spot!
We had a wonderful time and our children proclaimed they wanted to move in. The house was beautiful and immaculate. It is always nice to feel like you are at home while on vacation rather than living out of a hotel room. The house had everything we needed with a well equipped kitchen to make meals for the family. The back of the house is lined with sliding doors so you can enjoy the lovely views of the lake from anywhere in the house. Simply breathtaking during the morning and evenings. We loved our morning and evening strolls on the beach and we were lucky enough to catch a couple of great evening sunsets.
We must agree that the pot pies from the Good Hart general store were very good and a trip up to Legs Inn is definitely worth it too. The location made it easy to visit several locations both north and south. We managed day trips up to the Tahquamenon Falls and Mackinac Island as well as going south to visit Harbor Springs and Petoskey. We highly recommend Pond Hill Farm. Perfect place to pick up food for the cabin plus the kids loved the activities and the cafe/wine tasting was also worth it.
My husband and I were very pleased with the property. It was clean, comfortable and relaxing. The sandy beach provided the perfect setting to relax each evening with our adult sons and their girlfriends. The wildlife, soothing sounds from the lake, and beautiful sunsets made each day very special. There are many fine restaurants and shopping available in nearby towns. The local general store in Good Hart makes the BEST HOMEMADE POT PIES EVER! Thank you to the owners for sharing with us their rental home. We highly recommend the Good Hart Lakehouse.
Very nice, clean property. Beautiful sunsets. Just down the stairs to the beach/lake. Very private and quiet. Lots of wildlife and waterfowl nearby.
Our vacation was spur of the moment and it couldn't have been more amazing. The house is fantastic - gorgeous view from every room in the house - immaculate, and well appointed - you feel like you are in an upcale lake resort. Very cozy and convenient to everything in the area - State Parks, hiking, dunes, reserves, beaches, Mackinac, downtown Harbor. You could eat breakfast everyday at the cute cafe in Good Hart! Lots of stuff for kids to do - we would go again in a heartbeat. This vacation made us re-think how often we can come up and visit Northern Michigan.
We have visited this area many times over the years and have loved it. This year we took the opportunity to stay on Lake Michigan in this beautiful home. Words are not enough to express how wonderful this place was for our family. We play on the beach, we went north to Wilderness State Park and played on the dunes and on the beach, we visited Pond Hill Farm (a great place for kids), we went to our usual destination of Mackinac Island and had a great day there. The home has a great kitchen and outdoor grill which we used every day. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and just like home. The open layout of the home was perfect for our family of four and enjoying the home.
On my own I went biking on the Trail of Trees, kayaked in Lake Michigan and hiked the trails in Wilderness State Park before everyone in the family got up each morning. So this is truly an outdoor trip for anyone - even those without a family.
Finally, the owners are truly wonderful. The have a great home and are willing to share this great treasure and are great to work with.
This home is everything it says and more. You cannot go wrong in renting.
Good Hart is a serene and peaceful area. The house is just off the 'Tunnel of Trees' and surrounded by nature, the water is spectacular, the view are amazing, the beach is beautiful and always empty (like a private beach!). There are hiking trails, miles of sandy beach (great for long walks!), huge sand dunes. A real get away. The sunsets are truly world-class and at night the sky is full of stars. All you have to do is relax and enjoy!
