About Ray Battestilli

I am a retired teacher/counselor and former professional photographer. My wife is a travel writer. Although we have traveled fairly extensively, our hearts belong to our beautiful state of Michigan, and - although my wife's travel writing has taken us to every corner of 'the mitten' - we have narrowed our search for the perfect getaway to the picturesque area of Harbor Springs. Whether traveling to 'Harbor' for summer, fall, or the winter holidays, there are always plenty of opportunities for fun through music festivals, town events, cultural entertainment, recreational sports, etc.

Ray Battestilli purchased this house in 2012

Why Ray Battestilli chose Northern Michigan

The views alone offer so much by way of pure relaxation. Very nicely updated and cozy, our place is a snug little get-away. You can trailer your boat, too!

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location . . . Privacy, great bicycling (you can ride to town in about 10 minutes), and all that the scenic village of Harbor Springs, and the very 'Cool City' of nearby Petoskey has to offer. Views of Little Traverse Bay are stunning. And, we have room in our driveway for a boat/trailer.
