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.

Very cute house

This is a very cute, comfortable house with plenty of room for multiple families. The backyard is a good size with a hammock for relaxing. The IGA grocery store is very close and downtown is a quick walk. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: I'm glad the two levels worked out for your group. It is nice to be able to retire to separate "spaces" to relax at the end of the day or to wake up in your own style. The store is so close we refer to it as "the pantry" as one can walk there and back almost before others notice they're gone. However, it a block away, tucked around the corner, and completely out of view. Great for last minute buys and restock of beverages even during a party. Thanks for choosing Barb's Dimora.

Pure Heaven In Harbor Springs

I've stayed many places in Harbor Springs in the last 30 years and this house was by far the best. The decor is beautiful and whimsical. We felt so comfortable and relaxed during our stay. It's close to the beach and awesome shopping if you choose to leave the comfort of the hammock out back or the peaceful large porch out front. All the amenities that were promised were there and then some! The rent is so reasonable that we're staying longer next summer!

Was the lucky recipient of an invitation to this cozy, immaculate, classy, all amenities included home. The decor lifts your spirits as soon as you cross the thresh hold! A great front porch is very inviting, both for morning tea and evening libations and chats. Close enough to town to walk and take in all the gorgeous scenery and white hydrangeas galore! Shopping, beaches, music, dining - it's all there, but returning to this gem at the end of the day makes the trip!

Owner's Response: Glad you made it to the slopes - less than 10 minutes from the house - and happy you found the house so relaxing. You should definitely try the summer when shopping, swimming, sailing, and bicycling can replace skiing.

I had a great time staying here to celebrate the new year. It was an easy drive from Cleveland. The place was beautiful and roomy as described. Christmas was in the air with a huge decorated tree in the town square. The house was charming and we enjoyed a great party to usher in the new year. A few days on the slopes at nearby Nubb's Nob was terrific. Lunch at the City Park Grille in Petoskey will be worth a little side trip (15 minutes). You can't beat dinner at the Pier Restaurant in Harbor Springs. Ended all too soon.
