This luxury retreat is nestled in the trees on 10 beautiful acres of mature spruce and hardwoods in the picturesque resort community of Harbor Springs Michigan – often called the Aspen of the Midwest. It is the perfect vacation home....would be lovely for an intimate wedding gathering as well.
Located on a private 10-acre parcel, yet just a two-minute drive from downtown Harbor Springs, you'll enjoy the feeling of 'getting away from it all', while still being close to Lake Michigan, dining, shopping, boating etc. For skiing, Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob are less than 10 minutes away.
Custom built by Richard Darnton/Darnton Builders, this 5,930 square foot log home has many beautiful artistic elements –a hand-crafted timber stairway with twig railings, pine wall paneling with custom milled edge detail, interior hewn beams salvaged from a local church, and a reading nook in the great room built from a hollowed-out tree trunk.
The gourmet kitchen featuring a Wolf range, Subzero refrigerator, large walk-in pantry and granite countertops is open to the cozy gathering room and takes advantage of woodland views and a spectacular stone fireplace. A large screened porch (also with a stunning stone fireplace), and expansive deck provide plenty of room to enjoy nature and the outdoors in this extraordinary northern Michigan setting just a few minutes from Lake Michigan.
The home is ideal for entertaining and family gatherings. Rooms are spacious and thoughtfully furnished. The great room has a twenty five foot high ceiling; the walk-out lower level features a game room and family room. And if you love sports, there also an indoor basketball/sports court!
The master suite is on the main floor and features two walk-in closets, a private deck and a large bathroom with tiled shower and double sinks. The bath area is designed for relaxing with a vintage tub set into a niche framed with hewn timbers. Three spacious bedrooms,full bath and a loft are located on the 2nd floor.
A personal office space just off the spacious foyer is the perfect place to work from home.

Our family enjoyed every moment in this beautiful cabin. Our children spent countless hours in the indoor basketball court. The entire cabin is so charming and cozy. We didn't want to ever leave. Can't wait to visit again!!! We have rented numerous cabins in the past, and this is by far the best. We will recommend this cabin to everyone.
We wanted to start a new tradition of taking some time as an extended family (2 married children, one grandchild, one still single son) and this was an ideal place for that to happen. This home is very spacious and provided everyone have their own private spaces yet the common areas for time together were perfect for playing games, reading and, of course, eating. The kitchen made putting our meals together great fun - top notch appliances and plenty of room for everyone to get into the action. Everything you need to make fantastic meals (pots & pans, kitchen tools, etc.) are right there for your use.
As you might imagine, in the middle of winter, the fireplace was a big attraction and we spent a lot of time around it - especially after people came back from skiing, snowboarding or just walks through the beautiful woods surrounding this home.
The indoor half court got a lot of use and the competition was fierce to see who was the best "lightening" player (I was not, apparently) and there are other games as well. There is a T.V. but we never turned it on - too much other fun stuff to do. There are lots of books and games there if you want to use them.
Proximity to the ski hills, to town (Harbor Springs or Petoskey) make this a very convenient place and the owners were super attentive to making sure we had a great stay. Hope we can come back next year too!
