READY TO RENT FOR WINTER SEASON 2014-2015

Harbor Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Cheery cottage (vacation home) with 2 master suites with attached baths, one on each level, and additional guest room and bath on main level. (Great opportunity for reunions with additional rental next door under same owner - see vrbo.com 3495242).

Sip beverages and enjoy alfresco dining on the covered porch or catch the last of the sunset on the patio with a cool drink while grilling dinner on the gas grill. Or take the night off and go out for a great meal at one of the local restaurants.

Nap in the backyard in a shaded garden hammock or relax with a good book. Open living space describes the kitchen, dining and living area on upper level. Lower level provides an additional living space.

Televisions (3), DVD, VHS, stereo unit with CD and IPod player are included. Electric fireplace on lower level can warm up a chilly evening for skiers to relax and lounge with hot chocolate and a good movie and leave you rejuvenated for another day on the slopes. Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands are less than 10 minutes away and Boyne Mountain is a 25 minute ride away in Boyne Falls.

In the warm months, go to the beach, get in a boat, take a walk along the Bluff with beautiful views of the Bay or along the water past beaches and marinas. Ride a bike, play golf or tennis, sightsee or shop 'til you drop in the unique stores you will find in Harbor Springs and Petoskey (across the Bay). Take the ferry (30 minutes away) to Mackinac Island for the day and see the Fort and Arch Rock, among other sights. Rent a horse or take a carriage ride while on the Island.

This house is a short walk to town. Skiing slopes (2) are within 10 minutes of the house. You can reach northern Mi by Lakeshore Express Airlines from Chicago in one hour.

This home is cozy and comfy and lends itself to gatherings of all sorts. A great getaway for families, or couples/friends, a respite for one or a romantic retreat for two. There's always plenty to do 'up north' and the opportunity to do nothing when the mood strikes.

Keywords: Newly renovated, nicely appointed, casual, all seasons vacation home (cottage) with all the amenities and yard. A restful getaway located on Little Traverse Bay near beaches, golf, shops, skiing, playground, boating, art shows, festivals and activities for all seasons. Perfect for families and friends.

I grew up spending all my summers in this area since I was 10 yrs. old. I brought my children here for their summers and I hope someday they will do the same when they have children. I love the area in any and all seasons as there is something to be had for everyone regardless of talents, hobbies or interests.

Barbara Arnold purchased this house in 2009

I chose this area because of my fond memories but also because of its' universal appeal to others, and the opportunity for year round activities.

Skiing, boating, golfing and tennis are all nearby and the slopes are less than 10 minutes away.

I love enjoying the company of friends for beverages and dinner grilled on the patio. I appreciate napping in the shaded garden hammock in the backyard or just relaxing in an adirondack chair late in the day.

Relaxing in front of the fireplace after a day on the nearby slopes of Nubs Nob or Boyne Highlands is warm and restful.

Heading downtown to watch tennis on the waterfront or sit by the Bay is a pleasure of mine. Walking the boardwalk down to the beach and sitting and swimming in the afternoon is the best.

Rainy days do not deter me - with book in hand I head to the covered porch and relax. Sometimes the games will emerge when others also congregate on the spacious porch.

I enjoy walking or riding my bike along the Bluff looking at the spectacular views of the Bay and boating on the Bay is even better. Jumping into the clear clean waters of Lake Michigan is a joy.

I always find myself rested and renewed as I head home from this oasis.

IMMACULATE AND CHARMING COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful place to take in beautiful Harbor Springs and enjoy a vacation with your family, girlfriends, or even three couples! Upstairs has two bedrooms with their own bathrooms and then downstairs there is a wonderful king bed also with it's own extra large bathroom. We called it the Presidential Suite since we were lucky enough to use this room with a Presidential seal mounted on the headboard above our bed! So much charm, and every room has the furnishings that make you feel like you are home. It lives large and the owner has thought of everything you might need. Loved the front porch for conversations and the shady back yard for family games or lounging on the deck. So convenient too....walked to town or the harbor and only two blocks to the grocery store. A special place and a great find!

CHARMING HOME

  • 5 of 5
This home was very clean and well organized. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need and there were plenty of towels and linens. We enjoyed a family reunion where everyone had space to spend time alone or together. The location is perfect-near shopping, beach and great bluff views. The home is decorated in clean crisp cheery colors and comfortable furniture. Relaxation and good times to be had at this home. I particularly enjoyed the front porch for entertaining and enjoyed the backyard hammock for late afternoon naps. Perfect home to relax and entertain! I plan to make this my regular summer rental. Thanks for everything!

MY HAPPY PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Not my first trip to Harbor Springs, definitely my best. All around the most perfectly appointed vacation home (I call them cottages!). Impressed by the well equipped kitchen and all details beyond. They thought of just about everything here. Genius planning to accommodate all groups of vacationers. We were on a girls getaway but I found this cottage would be perfect for my brood at home. The beds are the best- sad to say, the king in the Lower Level Master has a better mattress than I sleep on every night! The front porch was our "base" but I snuck off to read in the TV area in lower level and late night talks were perfect in the living room. Crisp clean colors in every room, space to relax- in or out- up or down! This is my new Happy Place to meditate on when life gets me stressed! Can't wait til next year.

BEST RENTAL PROPERTY WE'VE EVER HAD

Best rental property we've ever had
  • 5 of 5
Barb's Dimora has everything that we could ever need. The kitchen is full equipped - cooking utensils, plenty of plates and cups, mixer, blender, cutting boards, platters, and even extra containers for leftovers. We used the outdoor grill almost every day and ate dinner on the breezy front porch. Every room has a fan to keep the air moving during the warmer months, and the basement living room was a welcome option when it was hot. Laundry rooms were great! Next time I will pack less clothing for the family because doing laundry was so easy. Everything you need for kids too - plenty of beach chairs and towels, beach toys, and especially a beach umbrella. Our kids enjoyed the corn hole game and the hammock in the backyard. If I could, I would have taken the mattresses home with me. So comfortable! We made several walking trips to the IGA, but with three small kids in tow, it wasn't possible to walk downtown. Thankfully the downtown beach was only a five-minute drive away. We enjoyed the Summer Musique and Farmer's Market. We definitely enjoyed out trip and will come back next year.

EXCELLENT FOR FAMILY SKI TRIP

  • 5 of 5
This house is freshly decorated and very clean. There's lots of room, and as other reviewers have mentioned, the beds are very comfortable. Three full baths made it very easy for everyone in our group to get ready, and there was plenty of room for our things. The kitchen is well-stocked, and it was a very quick drive to Nub's Nob. I'm pretty picky about where I stay, and I would highly recommend this place!
