About The Owner

We are 2 brothers and their families that grew up in Harbor and really love to come back to the area.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Northern Michigan

The house has been great for us and our 'shanty Irish' gatherings of 25 plus family members. The area of Harbor Springs has unlimited potential for vacations of all sorts.

What makes this house unique

The locale of this house is excellent. You do not even need a car to experience everything Harbor Springs has to offer. You can walk to 2 beaches, hit some tennis balls at the water front, dine at great restaurants, and have more fudge than a 6 year old can eat

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was an awesome spot for our family get together. We had our reunion here and packed the house with all ages... the porches are great for family dinners. Thanks we had a blast.

vacation time

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 children) stayed at your home this summer and what a great time we had. It was only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, shopping, and marina. We will definitely be back next year. Your home was large and comfortable.

I stayed here with 2 other families. Great to have an affordable place at which we could all stay together. And close to beach and downtown. Unlimited nooks and crannies to explore!

Perfect Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolute great rental for our two families! Plenty of room for all of us to enjoy without being on top of each other. You can't find a better location in Harbor. Walking to town and beach was ideal. The backyard made for great fun for all the kids and adults alike. Thank you for opening your home, we look forward to coming back next year!!

Great Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

What a great family vacation home for one family or to share with multiple families! The property is well maintained, clean, and set up great for vacation. Downtown Harbor Springs is a short walk down Main Street and close enough to park the car for the whole vacation and not drive anywhere! Plenty of places to eat, explore, and visit in walking distance. We enjoyed the family dinners on the deck and viewing 4th of July Fireworks and the Northern Lights from the "Lido" deck on the third floor balcony! Could not be happier with our choice in vacation rental and recommend this to home to anyone who want to experience a true Harbor Springs vacation.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation in Harbor Springs this summer! The location of this house on Main Street is super! We took advantage of the close walk to the beach, restaurants and ice cream! The house is very comfortable, I couldn't believe how much room our group of 8 had. The kitchens had everything we needed, all linens were provided for and it was neat and clean. I am already looking forward to renting again next summer!!
