Overview

Harbor Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Whatever season you like best, this home is the perfect place for you! Whether it's the Trillium bloom in the spring, sunsets over Lake Michigan in summer, driving the Tunnel of Trees in the fall, or skiing and snowboarding in the winter, you can do it here.

This is a custom Town & Country Builders home, situated on 10 acres of trees on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Breathtaking views of the lake from almost every room remind you why northern Michigan is such a coveted vacation spot. This home is over 3500 sq. ft., designed to let everyone spread out and relax!

The main floor includes a family room with vaulted ceiling, beautiful stone fireplace and comfortable furnishings. It joins an open dining area that seats 8, with additional seating for 5 at the granite bar in the kitchen. The large kitchen includes a Subzero refrigerator, Jenn Air 6 burner range top and pro-style hood, two ovens, dishwasher and large pantry. The master suite features a king size bed, stone fireplace, private balcony, and private bathroom with large tiled shower and double sinks.

There are two bedrooms, a full bath and a loft on the upper level. The loft has two chaises perfect for relaxing with a good book, while still enjoying the beautiful view of the lake.

The walk-out lower level features two bedrooms, each with two queen beds.There is also a full bath and a rec room with large screen TV, ping pong table, and game table that calls out for those evening games of Monopoly with the family!

There is a deck with dining set, and a patio off the lower level great for playing ladder ball or bean bag toss( games included!).

The highlight of a Lake Michigan vacation is, of course, going to the beach and dipping your toes in the lake.Take a walk down the bluff on our beautiful staircase.You can enjoy the views and relax on the sun deck or continue down to the shores of Lake Michigan. Enjoy walks, sunning, swimming and more on 300 ft. of private, sandy beach. (Beach chairs provided).

**Changes in the lake water levels can seriously affect the shoreline. Normal levels have a beach with sand, as our pictures show. High water levels can cover the sand, or erode it to expose the rocks underneath. Conditions along the shore are changed by the water and wind, and are a natural cycle that we do not control.**

This large, comfortable home is a great spot for entertaining or for family get-togethers, just 15 minutes from the great skiing of Boyne Highlands and Nub's Nob. A short drive north brings you to Cross Village for lunch at Legs Inn, while a 40 minute drive brings you to the Mackinaw Bridge. Head south to the great shopping, dining, beaches or marinas of Harbor Springs or Petoskey.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5

This house and location are perfect, secluded but close to town. We even got used to the 192 steps down to the water. This was a family vacation for 15...........plenty of room for everyone. We set up volleyball in front yard, had a fire every night. So relaxing that we booked it again next year!

Ski weekend family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful long weekend with three generations of the family. Having twelve of us comfortably gathered under one roof was just exceptional. Your home is beautifully equipped to handle large gatherings in such a scenic setting. We had an amazing time and can't wait for next year!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Great long weekend with our adult children and baby grandson...9 of us total. It was everything and more than I hoped for. Communication with the owner was great. The home had everything we needed. The kitchen was awesome. Enjoyed the view from the deck and taking all the stairs down to the beach. Grilled outside every night on the nice gas grill. Sat around the fire pit a couple of nights. Went to Traverse City area wine tasting one day and golfing another day. Our last day was rainy so we stayed in playing games. Highly recommend for family gatherings.

Harbor Springs Haven

  • 5 of 5

Our family was absolutely blessed to enjoy this beautiful home over Memorial Day weekend! We had 7 adults and 4 children in our group and all slept very comfortably in this spacious setting. Our children enjoyed having the upstairs area to sleep and play in, it was wonderful to have that separate space for them! We never felt crowded as the space is plentiful in this home and outside of the home. The kitchen was amazing and our mother who loves to cook enjoyed it thoroughly! It had everything we needed. We also truly enjoyed the fire pit every night and going down to the beach area for the sunsets. Amazing! From the location of the we are able to comfortably drive to Mackinaw City/Island and also enjoy the lovely towns of Harbor Springs and Petoskey. We also enjoyed jogging along Tunnel of Trees for our runs - what perfect setting. We will most definitely be back! Thank you so much for sharing your home!

Awesome Weekend Up North!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect weekend of skiing with friends & family. The accommodations were perfect - plenty of room for everyone and the kitchen was phenomenal - it had everything we needed. We are already planning to return next year! I really wish firewood could be provided - the evenings were perfect to have a fire, but we only scrounged up enough wood for one night. That would be a nice feature to add for next time. You have a lovely home. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

Kind regards, the Genaus & the Andridges from Midland MI

4 Generation Family Get-together in Harbor Springs for skiing and general relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The home itself is not only beautiful, but its setting in a heavily wooded area with a Lake Michigan view, is equally exquisite. The towns of Harbor Springs, Petoskey and tiny Cross Village are not far and worth the drive. The 11 people enjoyed the time together, particularly with how the main level was open and flowed from the 2-story family room into the kitchen. The kitchen was perfect for cooking all of our meals while there for 4 nights/5 days. There was never a sense of feeling crowded in the home. The owners were very accommodating and gracious in our written communications with them. We highly recommend this as a rental to anyone interested and hope to rent it again in the future.
