Overview

About the property

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 #350797).

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Delightful, comfortable home! So many extras Barbara provides for the guests to enjoy, from lovely wine glasses to an outdoor fire bowl. She responds to all correspondence quickly, and is truly concerned that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Beautiful home with lots of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Had my family at Barbara's home for 4 days. The beds are very comfortable, the walk to town is perfect and the backyard is gorgeous! Barbara has everything at the home you could need...iron, games, hair dryer, wine glasses, grill, ice, etc! Thank you for a fantastic stay in Harbor Springs!

Very clean house and professional home owner

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The home owner was very prepared, the house was very clean and had everything we needed and more. The only thing missing was a hot tub!! It was lovely to rent this house with friends. It's very close to town and surrounded by a cute neighborhood. Only ten minutes from Boyne highlands which was super convenient. I would recommend this house.

Great place to stay for a Boyne Highlands Ski trip

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was excellent! The owner was very timely with her responses when booking and flexible with check-in, check-out. The place was very cute, nicely decorated, and very well kept. We had a group of us, so it was nice to have multiple bedrooms with bathrooms. Our stay was in February and we were just minutes from the slopes of Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob. We were also just minutes from downtown Harbor Sorings. It was a very convenient location. Highly recommend!

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the weekend and were immediately impressed with how clean and welcoming the place looked! There was plenty of sleeping space and living space. We didn't take full advantage of all the outdoor seating and fire pit but it was so nice to have the option! We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Lovely, well maintained property

  • 4 of 5

The home is well supplied and immaculately clean. It's 1 block from the grocery store but pretty much had everything we could possibly want.
