Beautiful Log Home!

  • 5 of 5

Nancy's home is beautiful and relaxing! The home is beautifully crafted and has just about everything you need. Close to town, skiing and restaurants. The hot tub was huge and a great hit with my family after a long day on the slopes. Great little gem of a home!

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay at the Good Hart Retreat was awesome! There were so many 'extras' that really surprised us. It was great to see things like spices, aluminum foil, DVDs, cute décor, shampoos, and all the little items available for us. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer; 2 nights just wasn't enough! I'm hoping we can do this next year as well and possibly even for the summer or fall in order to enjoy the nearby beaches. My only recommendations: You may want to pack a towel for the hot tub if you plan to use that - and don't rely heavily on the WiFi as it didn't work well for us. With that said, we will definitely be back!

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter had the idea of a family gathering, my son found the place and it was perfect for the eight of us (including two grandchildren)! We loved being in the woods along the historic Tunnel of Trees and a very close walk to the shore of Lake Michigan. The cabin is about 60 minutes from Mackinac Island and a short distance to Harbor Springs, so there is a lot to do in the area. We have stayed in many cabins in other parts of the country. This particular cabin is ranked very high for several reasons; eclectic interior decor, well equipped kitchen including ice-maker, nice deck seating with bright red cushions, new barbeque, bicycles, work out gym, plenty of room with the three levels, wonderful fireplace, personal touches normally not in other rentals. The owner is a delight and very helpful. We would definitely stay there again!

Winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I snuck away for an early week skiing getaway at Boyne Highlands. We were looking for a place away from the resort that made us feel like we were nestled in the northern woods. The Good Hart Retreat was it! From a crackling fire in the stone fireplace (with an amazing mantle) to the toasty hot tub, it had everything we wanted. The kitchen is well-stocked with the necessary utensils and there was tons of space to relax and unwind in. Take the drive up M-119 out of Harbor Springs and enjoy some beautiful vistas over Lake Michigan! The Good Hart retreat is about 20 minutes over country roads from Boyne. We hope to come back again next year!
