Treasured Hideaway was wonderful
Three (3) couples shared this home for a destination wedding weekend in Harbor Springs. The setting is lovely, the home met our needs perfectly. We had lunch in Harbor Springs on Friday - like being in a picture book for the day -and drove the 20 mile "Tunnel of Trees" - photos taken along the lake - such a beautiful setting. Then a Welcome Party @ nearby Pond Farm & Winery, ceremony @ Catholic Church in downtown Harbor Springs, and the wedding reception at the Birchwood Farm & Country Club on Saturday evening. We know we would have loved exploring the neighborhood even more. but we were unprepared for the unexpected snow...though it was lovely with all the fall color backdrop to the pristine snow.
Thank you for your very positive feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Treasured Hideaway and the community of Harbor Springs. We look forward to having you return. Thank you Joy
All mattresses were much too firm, very uncomfortable, lower level smaller bad and had the only TV. Carpeting was excessively stained, made the home feel dirty although the rest was very clean. Kitchen was very good but no toaster.
Thank you for your valuable feedback. The homeowner has heard your comments loud and clean.
In response, there are ALL NEW mattresses in each bedroom. The carpets are now professionally cleaned twice a year. A TV has been added to the main floor for guest enjoyment.
In addition, the kitchen has been completely remodeled with granite counter tops & includes a very large island with seating for four. The kitchen includes all new appliances & a toaster oven.
Again, thank you your feedback. It is appreciated.
Beautiful tree house
Wow, what a great place. We absolutely love it. For us it is the location, far enough from the hustle and bustle of town--close to the fabulous country club and it's amenities. My husband loved biking downhill into town and appreciated the exercise of the uphill climb home.
The location also makes it a great place to start day trips. We were able to make trip to Mackinac Island with our bikes on our car rack. On the way up we stopped in Good Heart for the most delicious crepe I have ever had. We rented a pontoon boat one day in Alanson and took it up the river to Burt Lake. The kids loved tubing in the lake off the boat.
The impeccably clean house has plenty of space to relax and reenergize. My favorite spot is reclining in the hammock on the deck with a good book then falling asleep. It has everything you need to make your stay comfortable.
We have also enjoyed it in the winter. Wonderful sledding on the club grounds. There are 2 ski areas nearby as well.
This is not just a house but a home that makes you feel like one of the family, not a guest.
Thanks for the memories!
This home is a wonderful place to spend a family vacation. Harbor Springs is an incredibly charming town, similar to being in one of the nicer parts of Cape Cod or the Hamptons. Beautiful beaches, boating, lovely shops, and yummy vacation treats from the local bakery or fudge shop will be daily reminders that you are on vacation.
The attractively decorated house is nestled in the woods, just a short stroll from the golf course, club house and swimming pool. Dinners on the deck will give you every opportunity to practice your BBQ grilling skills while admiring the flowers and catching glimpses of wildlife including the occasional deer. Reading a book, while gently rocking in the hammock, is a nice way to spend an afternoon. The roomy kitchen with an island will let the cooks in your family practice their culinary skills. Bedrooms and baths on 3 different levels will let your family spread out, ideal for multiple generations.
On my first visit I was a bit concerned that there was no air conditioning but my worries were unfounded. The wooded setting and location ensures that the house remains cool, even on days when it is hot in the town of Harbor Springs.
This lovely house is now a place that feels like home, as I return with friends for summer fun year after year.
This property is 3 miles from Harbor Springs, 10 miles from Petoskey and 30 minutes to Charlevoix. Destinations for a day trip include Mackinaw Island (45 minutes), Upper Peninsula, Tunnel of Tree drive to Cross Village or renting a pontoon boat on Crooked Lake.
