My name is Linda. I am married to Abe Thiessen for 9 years now! We have 2 beautiful daughters! Amelia and Grace! We currently live in Charlevoix, MI.

Linda or Abe Thiessen purchased this house in 1987

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!

GREAT HOUSE!

This rental is very comfortable and very convenient. The location was perfect - very private and quiet and about a 2 minute walk to town. Everything you need is here - the owner's even had condiments and coffee and laundry soap for us to use. Although these items weren't promised, I could tell the owner takes time to think about "extras" that might be needed (and forgotten) during a vacation.

Being able to have our dog with us was a huge plus! If you travel with pets, you know that pet people are usually faced with either undesireable accomodations, or very high prices/deposits. It was nice to stay in a clean and cute house for not much more than a run-of-the-mill hotel.

Truly Just Like Being Home

We really enjoyed this "second home" because it really felt like a home we would have set up ourselves instead of a rented space. The amenities were perfect. We especially appreciated having "extras" in the kitchen that we didn't think to bring, quality linens, and extra blankets and pillows if we wanted them. Having the clothes dryer was a huge blessing too, since we cross-country skiied all weekend and our clothes were wet every time we got back. Initially, we chose this cottage because we could bring our dog, which was great, but we found that was just the beginning of the things we truly appreciated about our "second home" stay. Can't wait to visit again!

The Best!

Was everything we hoped for! Walkable to anywhere in Harbor Springs, yet somewhat isolated from the traffic! Especially on 4th of July! Patio was great, even had a couple deer stroll through! A great place to visit in the summer for families who like to be outside. We especially liked that the beach was only a few blocks away. We leave with the yearning already to return!

Great Cottage

This is a Harbor Springs Cottage only a few blocks from the beach and down town. It has a great yard with plenty of room and a nice patio. The cottage is small and comfortable for 3 or 4 people (small family). We spent most of our time enjoying the yard, patio, and the nearby attractions, but the cottage itself offered an excellent retreat for grilling and relaxing in the evening. Very Clean and functional.
