Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Really just a terrific place to enjoy rest, rejeuvation and fun. Right down the road from Pond Hill Farm and downtown Harbor Springs. Across the street and "down the way" from a beautiful nature preserve. Loved the views of Lake Michigan. The house is beautifully appointed with a lovely kitchen and an ideal first floor laundry (perfect for families). Aside from the gracious decor, each cozy chair (and there are many) has its own reading lamp...a great place to cozy-up with a book. Many baskets of blankets in the common areas to help with the "cozy." Beautiful wooded neighborhood in which to run, walk or bike ride. We can't say enough about this beautiful place.

The perfect retreat.

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely beautiful home in which to stay. Comfort, space, and lovely decor. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch each morning and spotted dear in the wooded backyard in the evenings. The kitchen had every amenity needed or desired. The association's pool is perfect or drive a short distance to Petoskey State Park and the beach. Just a quick, pretty drive to downtown Harbor Springs. We enjoyed the drive more each time we took it. Really just the perfect retreat for a couple or family. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
