About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

The perfect family summer vacation spot located on Lake Michigan just north of Harbor Springs in Good Hart. A beautifully designed home, tucked into the woods, it is artfully furnished and well appointed with stunning views from the main living areas and master bedroom. The deck has a gas BBQ grill, table and chairs for outdoor dining as well as a porch swing and additional comfortable seating for relaxing and enjoying the Lake Michigan breezes. To take full advantage of the Northern Michigan summer starry nights, there is a stone campfire pit on the beach. The hammock just off the patio…heavenly.

Immediately upon stepping through the front door you know your stay will be special. Designed by a master woodworker and furniture builder and custom built by Darnton Builders of Harbor Springs, the home has many beautiful decorative features. A hand-crafted stone fireplace will warm you up if the nights are chilly. The kitchen is very well-equipped and is open to the living/dining areas and looks out onto the patio and beach

Wow, fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 8 nights, it truly is a healing haven.

At night from the master bedroom, I could hear the sound of the waves, they lulled me to sleep.

We saw, Eagles fly past the window and red fox running through the woods, the wildlife is fabulous.

I was transported throughout my entire stay, I did not want to leave.

If you're truly looking for a get-away, this is the home!

Remote and heavenly

  • 5 of 5

If I could buy this house, I would! It is simply gorgeous. Every aspect of the house is exquisitely handcrafted. The location is remote, and perfectly located along the Tunnel of Trees. Close to the shoreline, the views are amazing. I especially loved the master bedroom and its picture window overlooking the lake. The owner has generously left some of his precious handmade tables and rocking horses. Only 20 minutes from Harbor Springs and 15 minutes from Cross Village, the house is a good home base for enjoying plenty of places to eat and explore. Sturgeon Bay is especially beautiful. We enjoyed our time "off the grid" and plan to come back.

This house is a great place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, comfortable and relaxing. There was plenty of room for our family of five adults and a baby. The kitchen is fully equipped, and we were able to cook a great dinner that we enjoyed on the patio. The views and outdoor areas are spectacular. We especially enjoyed our campfire on the beach on a perfect Northern Michigan August night. Karen, the property manager, was a pleasure to work with and recommended things to do in the Harbor Springs area. We only wish we could have stayed longer!
