Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Charming, comfortable and fully equipped, this newly constructed home (1997 with walk out lower level finished in 2006) was designed and furnished with the look and feel of a comfy cottage.

This home has a place for everyone – you will instantly feel at home. The kids can be playing in the spacious family room (many games and puzzles available) while you relax in the living room, review the amazing day you just experienced and begin planning the next one. Escape to the quiet den with a good book (the shelves are full of them) and sneak in a little nap before dinner. Prefer to dine in? The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking a meal, baking or entertaining.

Convenient – park your car and hang up the keys! Activities to fill your days are all within walking distance: beach, kayaking, bike rentals and trails, tennis, museums, shopping, coffee shops, ice cream and dining. If you choose, more adventures are minutes away by car: golf courses galore, boating, hiking, snow shoeing, 2 ski resorts, Thorn Swift Nature Center - the list is truly endless in this 4 season resort community. One of the most scenic drives in Michigan, The Tunnel of Trees is located minutes away.

This immaculate, spacious, beautiful home in one of the most desirable resort communities in the United States is waiting to make your next vacation one to remember.

Why Pat Bongiovanni chose Northern Michigan

After living, working and raising our family in Harbor Springs for many years, we left the area for a business opportunity. We knew that Harbor Springs would always be “home” in our hearts. We decided then to build the house we have now.

What makes this house unique

This below the bluff in-town property is truly unique. Convenience and comfort - perfect for a family vacation, golf groups, girls week away - something for everyone. This is a beautiful home. Our return clients are our best testimonial.

Clean, cozy and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This spacious, immaculate house was perfect for our extended family ski vacation. The home is well stocked and very clean with plenty of room to spread out. We had 6 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room for all. Location is perfect as it is within walking distance of downtown and a 5 minute drive to the slopes. We had an amazing time and would definitely stay here again.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two other couples rented this home for a long week-end in October of 2015. Our stay was delightful, and the accommodations were perfect for three couples. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom on a separate floor. The home was clean, comfortable and well furnished. The kicthen was also well equipped for our needs. It was also only a short walk to the downtown area.

We plan to return again next year!

Everything in the home is clean, comfortable, well equipped kitchen and an over all great spot to be with friends or family. You cannot go wrong and working with the owner was again, easy and very helpful. We will be back again to Harbor Springs and absolutely this property!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great week situated a 5 minute walk from downtown Harbor Springs. Our family of 6, with 4 late teen to preteen girls, was very comfortable in this house.

Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This property was delightful and met our needs perfectly. It's set up as almost two separate living spaces with a basement kitchen/living area and a main floor kitchen/living area. The rooms are spacious. It was impeccably clean and fully stocked with everything we could think of and much we did not (beach toys, board games, etc.). The owners were very responsive. There was Wi-fi. A great coffee maker. All the comforts of home. The location could NOT have been better. We will absolutely try to stay here again.
