About Stephanie Olson

We have used this home as our own vacation getaway while we were busy starting our family. Now that our youngest is about to start school, we realize we may not be able to use the home as much. We love all that Northern Michigan has to offer and hope that you will enjoy your time here, too!

Stephanie Olson purchased this house in 2007

Why Stephanie Olson chose Northern Michigan

Harbor Springs is such a quaint and beautiful area and offers so much that we enjoy- Lake Michigan, skiing, biking, hiking, hunting, Color Tour, and of course gorgeous views!

LOVED this place and can't wait to return!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this place. Myself, my husband (and our 1 year old daughter) as well as another couple stayed at the house, although there would have been plenty of room for more. The house is so nice, very spacious, very clean and has everything you'll need. The outside was amazing with a beautiful patio, yard, playhouse, fire pit, etc. We were also even able to bring our dogs who had an amazing time as well! The homeowners were so nice and responsive as I had quite a few questions about the area that they were more than willing to help with. We fell in love with this place from the moment we arrived and already are trying to find a weekend for next summer to return!!

Nice place to get together with friends

  • 5 of 5

This house was clean and kept up. Nice big balcony and yard. Stayed with a group of old friends and had a great time. Drive up to the UP was only an hour away and would highly recommend. Quaint towns near by for shopping and restaurants.

Perfect Summer or winter spot!

  • 5 of 5

Has everything you need for the perfect Michigan vacation. Not too big, not too small (at least for a group 6-10 people it'd be perfect!). Family was really helpful and provided great information about the area. I've been vacationing in Northern Michigan my whole life and even learned about a few spots from the binder they left! We went during the winter...super close to Nub's Nob and Boyne Highlands, and a quick drive either to Petoskey or Harbor Springs where there's cool stuff to do! And close to the gorgeous lake (Even in the winter it was gorgeous). I imagine in the summer it'd be wonderful cheaper option while still being close to all the amazing area has to offer. Can't wait to go back up.

excellent rental near Harbor Springs

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend at this Harbor Springs rental earlier this month. We had two families including a toddler and a dog and the house was an ideal size for our party. The well stocked kitchen (we like to cook), game room in the basement, and playground outside were the big hits of the rental.

The location was is a plus - very close to Harbor Springs itself and it would be great in winter being so close to Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands.

The renters were very good in answering any questions promptly and overall were a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend this rental without reservation to anyone looking to visit the Harbor Springs area.

The owners really go out of their way to make an enjoyable stay, very easy to work with. Beautiful hose, stocked with necessary and small amenities to make things easy. Great location, close to slopes, town, quiet neighborhood. I highly recommend renting this house in all seasons!
