Christmas season: Thanksgiving weekend is when the Christmas tree is set up downtown. Santa arrives in the afternoon for the children. In the evening here is a tree lighting ceremony where everyone sings Christmas carols before they light the tree! You have to attend on of these! It's like a Norman Rockwell painting!

My name is Linda. I am married to Abe Thiessen for 8 years now! We have 2 beautiful daughters! Amelia and Grace! We currently live in Charlevoix, MI.
I bought this house when I was 20 years old. It's been in the family since my Grandpa built it. When I had to move to Charlevoix for work, I didn't want to sell the house. We decided to turn it into a vacation rental. We don't have a lot of money. We are not trying to 'make' money off of it. We just need it to pay for itself in order to keep it! We like to keep the price down so EVERYONE can enjoy Harbor Springs! Although Harbor Springs is known for it 'money', we'd like to keep it affordable so average people can vacation too!
The location is everything! Our house is located just 2 blocks from down town. Located behind the Holy Childhood Church, you can faintly hear the church bells in the morning! Close enough to town to walk to dinner, church and the beach. Yet far enough out to be quiet and relaxing!
