Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 in beds)

Come explore the relaxing comfort of the crisp fresh air and sparkling artesian water of Harbor Springs. Within the city limits are two beaches, three world-class marinas, boutiques, galleries, entertainment and distinctive restaurants. This beautiful and spacious home (1,900 sq. ft.) located on the west bluff is within walking distance to all of it.

House comes with baby gates at top and bottom of stairs as well as front porch. Highchair, crib and diaper changing pad for top of dresser. Nearly all power outlets have covers. We do not provide car seats.

Start your morning off right by enjoying a cup of coffee while sitting on the front porch watching sail boats on Little Traverse Bay. Take a short drive to Pond Hill Farm to feed the pigs, and buy some amazing canned goods. Then stop by Bluff Gardens and pick up some fresh fruit for your lunch. Later in the afternoon, you can stroll down the waterfront, admiring the magnificent turn-of-the-century summer cottages or ride your bikes into town for an ice cream and view the many boats along the pier. Harbor Springs offers both formal and casual dining, or head out to one of our many fresh markets and have a barbeque on the back deck. And all of this is just 5 miles from Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands!!

Also visit nearby Petoskey and Charlevoix for dining, shopping and exploring galore . . . or you can just sit back and do nothing but simply enjoy a little piece of paradise. Happiness is Harbor Springs!

About The Owner

We have owned 'Longview' for the past 8 years. We Love our home dearly and know you will to.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Northern Michigan

There is nothing like waking up rolling over in bed with a full view of the bay. The house has every last thing you need. Just bring your suitcase and enjoy.

What makes this house unique

A place to stay that feels like home. House has pack n play, baby swing and a changing table. We just had a baby and realize how hard it is to travel with all the extra gear. So if you stay at our house there is no need to pack the extra gear.

What a great view and experience!

  • 5 of 5

I feel like the photos did not do this place justice, seeing it in person is impressive. The view is stunning, the home was very clean, and amenities were great. Super close 12 min drive to Boyne Highlands, and an IGA grocery and downtown Harbor Springs a stone's throw away. The home was very quaint and had everything our family needed. We had questions for the owner when we were there, and they were very responsive and helpful. Highly recommended.

Clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Long cottage. Owners gave great directions and instructions about the house. It was clean and comfortable. We found everything needed for our stay. The location was great, close to resturarants and shopping. Our favorite thing was having coffee on the porch each morning while watching the boats in the bay. We also enjoyed swimming at the beach which was close by. Harbor Springs is an adorable quiet little town. Great vacation, great cottage!

A Wonderful Vacation with Family...

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our vacation in Harbor Springs. It was wonderful from the very start...Arriving on a Sunday, we found our rental home very clean and perfect for our family. We especially loved the dining room which was bright and roomy, so we could all sit around the table. Also, we spent many hours on the porch, enjoying the beautiful view. Having teenagers, they loved walking to downtown Harbor Springs. Tom's Mother's Cookies, quickly became a favorite, as well as the ice cream parlors...yum!

We found the owner to be very helpful and accommodating, as well as friendly and prompt with any communication and questions. We have already booked for next year, as we hated to leave at the end of our stay.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Clean, completely furnished, great location for a weekend with extended family! We were thrilled to find the house exactly as described. The owners were a delight to work with and gave detailed information on where to find things (extra towels, sheets, outdoor cushions). We're already making plans to rent again.

Beautiful historic home with a fabulous view

Start the morning with coffee on the porch and a nice breeze off the bat or a cocktail and sunset in the evening. Beautiful home, and a great weekend enjoyed by all. Thank you!
