Overview

Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

Large deck. Walk to downtown & beach. Near bike trail, playgound, & grocery.

Nicely appointed, comfy home with fully stocked kitchen, family room and 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Two bedrooms have attached baths - Q bed in one en suite and K bed in the other en suite. Good storage in closets and dressers. The home sleeps 6 comfortably.

The kitchen is easy to work in with all appliances including microwave and coffee maker. The dining area seats 6-8 comfortably.

Two televisions are provided in upper and lower living spaces and master (K) bdrm. Stereo and games also provided in lower level living space.

The family room is a nice respite after a day on the slopes or at the beach. The bright room provides a view of flowering bushes and trees in backyard through the sliding doors to the deck.

This large deck off the family room, overlooking the large backyard, provides a nice opportunity for outdoor dining (at umbrella tables) and relaxation, as well as a nice play space for adults and kids alike. Enjoy some time under the umbrella or on a lounger with a cool beverage on one of the many sunny days in summer.

This home is located within walking distance to all the town has to offer - shops, restaurants and take-out, tennis courts, playgrounds, marina, beach, grocery (less than 2 blocks away!), boat and bike rentals, and churches.

There is a laundry room on the lower level to minimize the need to haul extra bags on planes/in cars.

For larger families/reunions this owner provides a second property, situated next door, for those who wish for additional space. Together the homes can accommodate 12-15 people. View additional property at vrbo #350797.

About Barbara Arnold

I am a professor of Graduate Studies in Education in Ohio. I grew up spending my summers in Harbor Springs. I appreciate all the seasons in this beautiful town. My children have also enjoyed their summers here. And I am hoping that soon they will have children that will also be fortunate enough to be able to share summer memories of the beautiful Bay and the surrounding areas.

Barbara Arnold purchased this house in 2012

Why Barbara Arnold chose Northern Michigan

I chose this property because of my fond memories from youth and because there is something for everyone to enjoy in each of the seasons. Whether it is relaxing on the deck, walking or biking in the neighborhood, shopping on Main St., golfing, boating, beaching or skiing, there is fun to be had. Located next door is another rental that can be used for larger groups and/or family reunions. Ask about that if you are interested.

What makes this house unique

The large backyard is a great spot for hanging out with large deck off the family room. The family room itself is cheery and restful. The kitchen is easy to work in and lends itself to helpers who can keep you company while being creative. The location is great - close enough to all the sports you want to enjoy. Buggy rides in the summer will pass by this home - fun for everyone. Located next door is another rental that can be used for larger groups and/or family reunions. Ask about that if you are interested (vrbo.com 350797).

Great Winter Weekend Getaway Close to Downtown Harbor Springs

  • 5 of 5

This is a darling cottage home that is much bigger and nicer than the pictures show!! Lots of room to spread out for the adult kids. Great amenities from the kitchen being well stocked to our bedding/linens!! Made me feel right at home! I think the only thing missing is a hot tub!!! ;) Barbara answered all my questions right away and gave us some great recommendations for dining out! Wish we could have stayed a few days longer!!

Great option for flight crew

  • 5 of 5

We had to find a place near the Pellston airport and found this home. It was a great alternative to a hotel for 4 days. It is a nice clean home and only 25 minutes from the airport. We were very pleased with the rental and the manager. Would recommend for anyone needing a place to stay in this area.

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely cottage in a quiet neighborhood with no detail overlooked, including beautiful windowboxes, plenty of outdoor seating, and great beds. It felt new - and just a pretty as the photographs. We walked into town, and to the great nearby IGA. Great grill and kitchen made eating in a pleasure; we were closes to the bike path and used our bikes every day. We will be back!

Great Spot for a Ski/Snowmobile getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 couples and the house fit us perfectly. Was within 10 minutes from the slopes and snowmobile rentals. It was great to be in a rental that we had at least a queen size bed in every room. The house was very clean. You can walk to the local IGA for groceries if need be. Downtown Harbor Springs is 5 minutes away as well. If you have more people you can also rent out the house next door.
