Located on M-119, the Tunnel of Trees, north of Harbor Springs. This spacious home is situated on a bluff over looking Lake Michigan. This is a very spacious home, with just over 4,000 sq. ft. of living area. The design allows for large groups of all ages to be together in one place and not feel crowded. There are five bedrooms, three and one-half baths and the ability to sleep fourteen in beds. Both the living room and family room have large state of the art television and comfortable seating areas. The property spans both the east and west side of M-119. The house has a very large yard with lots of shade trees for sitting and relaxing while looking out at beautiful Lake Michigan. Across M-119 on the west side is a small historical cabin for with more views of Lake Michigan. There is a 1/4 bath for convenience of guests that spend time out on the large sun deck located on the bluff. The deck is available for sunning, dining and watching unobstructed views of sunsets. The night time star gazing is indescribable! The property includes 75 feet of sandy beach for enjoying the crystal clear waters of northern Lake Michigan. The beautiful 172 step staircase is just a short distance south of the property and includes frequent rests area along the journey. The trip is worth it as you encounter some of the purest sand along the Lake Michigan shoreline. Beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys and a fire pit make the trip worthwhile!
The Goose Cottage is jointly owned by two couples who have enjoyed Lake Michigan for many years. We have boated in the Harbor Springs and Petoskey area and fell in love at first site. For many years we have explored the area and gotten to know the friendliness of the locals as well as the beauty of the northern Michigan area. Having our beautiful home on the magnificent Lake Michigan shoreline is a dream come true!
Teresa Toland purchased this house in 2013
The property was of the size to accommodate our families. We loved the views of Lake Michigan, the sounds of the waves washing against the shore as we relax on the decks of the property. The beach is some of the most beautiful sand to be found in this area. We love the beauty of Harbor Springs all year round.
Northern Michigan allows for activities throughout all the seasons. Boating, fishing, hiking, golf, skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, just to name a few. It attracts visitors from all over the US. Harbor Springs and Petoskey are nearby for shopping and dining.
Our extended family of 10 - from teens to 70's enjoyed a wonderful week at this home. Very clean and comfortable with everything you need. Beach, party deck and deck on home are great. We cooked, played games, traveled around the area and relaxed. View of Lake Michigan is outstanding. Owners were so easy to work with. Highly recommend this rental home. We hope to return. We especially the enjoyed The Fish restaurant.
A wonderful home for our family vacation, fantastic view of Lake Michigan.home is comfortably furnished, with plenty of room for our group of 10-ages 1-77!!!!
Well located for day trips to Harbor Springs, Mackinac Island, Petoskey etc.
A great vacation, enjoyed by all.
My 3 siblings and their families joined my family for a winter ski trip over the long holiday weekend. Goose Cottage was an amazing place for all of us to reconnect and unwind after trips to Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob. Both resorts are a short drive (15 minutes tops) and while skiing was our goal, we were pleasantly surprised by the natural beauty surrounding the home and the upscale ammenities inside. Sharing stories by the large fireplace, enjoying the solitude of the frozen lake just outside the windows or bonding over meals in the spacious dining room and perfectly staffed kitchen all made for a memorable weekend. The 9 cousins, all teens or young adults enjoyed their basement hide-a-way for card games, movie watching and inevitable laughter and chatter. After a long day skiing we hiked to the lake marvelling at the natural sights of lakefront caves and ice formations. We enjoyed The Fish for dinner, pizza in Harbor Springs and shopped at the IGA in town. The house looks much larger in person than the pictures. The bedrooms were large and the entire home was spotless, well organized and appointed with nearly every necessity. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent at Goose Cottage and if we come back to Northern Michigan we will definately seek out this house again, winter or summer.
5 siblings and spouses had a marvelous time at Goose Cottage in Harbor
springs. It offered much more than we needed, but we totally enjoyed our stay there.
For the first time, we decided that our entire family (children, spouses & grandchildren) would take a weeklong vacation together, and the "Goose Cottage" proved to be the perfect place to have this memory making experience. Not only did the beautiful home accommodate all 13 of us with ease, but the setting overlooking Lake Michigan was awesome. Dinner and sunsets on the Party Deck were outstanding, and the days spent on the private Lake Michigan beach were fun and relaxing. We will all cherish the memories of our week at Goose Cottage forever. It truly exceeded all expectations.
I cannot say enough good things about Goose Cottage. Great location overlooking the water with a fantastic deck to take in the most breath taking sunsets. We rented the house to celebrate a birthday and had numerous family and the house more than accommodated our large group. Easy drive into Harbor Springs or Potoskey. The house is furnished like a home and not a rental meaning all the furniture, cutlery, dishes, etc are of a high quality and plenty of it. The basement is a huge area if the weather is not accommodating. The basement in HUGE and fully finished. I could go on and on as this is a great house with a great owner who is tremendously helpful. Do yourself a favor and use this house when in the area.
Just 8 minutes for downtown Harbor Springs.
