About Alyssa Briggs

We live part of the year in nearby Petoskey and part of the year in Ohio. This home has been in our family for decades and we're delighted to share it with you. (We have great staff who work with us to care for the property and help our guests.)

Why Alyssa Briggs chose Harbor Springs

This property is spacious, attractive, tasteful and clean. You can watch a movie in the third floor entertainment center, while others soak in the hot tub on the garden level as some play cards in the main level living room as still others sit in the sunroom looking for deer in the woods. In summer 2016, we engaged in a thorough update. From installing new flat screen televisions to a new refrigerator in the main kitchen (one of three in the home), we have taken steps to insure that this home meets and exceeds your expectations. New beautiful flooring is being added to the lower level.

What makes this house unique

If requested, we can provide full concierge service. From grocery delivery to golf or tennis arrangements, we can make sure that your time in the Great North is amazing. Private chef, lift tickets delivered to your door, maid or laundry service...You name the amenity and we will work to bring it to you.

Great House for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

We have rented in Birchwood for probably 20+ years as we enjoy the scenery and the beautiful homes. A little ways out of town, but on the back roads only about 10 minutes to the slopes. This home affords a lot of space for a large group and fits our needs perfectly. The owner and management agency are always very accommodating and quick to address any issues we have ever had. The kids love all the space this home provides for a challenging ping pong game or a soak in the hot tub and the adults love the kitchen and all the bathrooms. This is the perfect home for large groups.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for a larger family vacation. Plenty of room for everyone without being crowded. The location is great, very scenic but still close enough to anything that you'd need. The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with. The kitchen is a gourmet's dream! It was a hangout at all hours of the day. Can't wait to rent this house again next year!

2014 Review

  • 5 of 5

We do an annual family & friends ski/snowmobile vacation for nine nights and have rented this home over a period of many, many years. It is probably the biggest rental house in Harbor Springs with eight bathrooms and seven bedrooms and a well-stocked and very large kitchen that can accommodate a host of cooks -- no such thing as too many cooks in the kitchen with this house. The owners and the rental agency are very accommodating and easy to deal with and make every effort to insure their guests’ comfort. Ditto for the housekeeper/caretaker who quickly responds to any questions or issues and maintains a high standard of cleanliness and helpfulness. Owners also allowed a dog one year without charge which helped us out considerably. Hot tub and sauna a plus for weary bones. House is perfect for large groups that want to stay together and share the rental cost, but at the same time, there is never a feeling of too many people in one place because it is so expansive. We will continue to rent this home and I would recommend it for any large group.
