Harbor Springs Studio Rental Photos and Description
Located at the corner of State and Main Streets in downtown Harbor Springs, this 2nd floor corner loft sleeps 2 adults in a California king size bed comfortably. As you awake, you'll glance out one of your large windows and sneak a peek of the weather and the happenings on main and state streets below. Venture down the stairs and enter the middle of the village instantly. You'll find a warm cup of joe, newspaper, and a cooked to order breakfast in no time. You may opt to keep the slippers on and brew your own coffee in your complete kitchen while surfing the net and cable tv. The space is wifi complete and ready for you. As the day unfolds, stroll to the pier or the beach as they're only a block away. Hop on your bike and ride the bike path on M119, north thru the canopy of trees or back through town. Stay focused though, as the shops and restaurants will likely distract. Whatever your choice, you'll easily forget about time, in this cozy and tranquil space! ;)

About Dave Trachtenberg
As a boy, I remember counting mile markers on northbound Interstate 75. Traveling from the flatlands and cornfields of Ohio, the landscape is what really popped out at me. The fir and birch trees that kept growing into forest the further north I headed. I also remember the contrasts in temperature and was amazed at how much cooler it became the further north I went, even in August!
As a young man, I took my first job as a Dockporter on Mackinac Island. Well, that's not true, my first job was technically a convention porter for the Grand Hotel, but I only lasted the day when I learned my uniform was a green blazer and dacron knit black slacks! I was not going to spend my summer in that formal attire.
My chief responsibility as a dock porter was to greet hotel guests at the ferry dock and assist them with their luggage to their hotel or b. Guests would generally tip me to ride their luggage on my bike to the hotel. 'Dockporting' was the best job I ever had, as I got paid to work out of doors and ride a bike! On my days off, I would catch a ferry ride to the mainland, pickup some McDonalds or anything else that was unavailable on the island and set off for a ride south on M119. Passing through Good Hart, taking a break on the old wooden bench outside the general store, I'd ride further to Historic Legg's Inn in Cross Village. From there, I'd race through the canopy of trees with the sunlight flickering on and off over my shoulder, ending up down the hill in Harbor Springs. I'm thrilled to now literally have a little corner of the village, and I'm happy to share the space now with you! :)
