About the property

Great Family Vacation 4/3 with private beach/tennis courts/pools and more!

Welcome to our newly renovated 4 bedroom 3 bath condominium in wonderful Harbor Cove!

When you walk in on the main level, you'll feel right at home in this intimate yet spacious 2 story end unit (larger) condominium, nestled in the woods for privacy but located a mere 100 yards from Gorgeous, Little Traverse Bay!

New wood flooring in the main areas, kitchen bathrooms, and upper level offer attractive visual compliments to the main floor which includes the spacious family room (comfortable seating for 10-12) with vaulted ceiling, exposed wood beams, stone hearth with natural wood burning fireplace and 55 inch flat panel TV with DVD and I-Pad/Phone/Pod wireless speakers for your entertainment, all encapsulated with welcoming decor throughout. 2 separate master bedrooms (each with 32 inch Flat Screen TV’s) with full renovated bathrooms are also located on the main floor. Master bedroom #2 has access to a super private deck, great for your morning coffee or some quiet time. Master bedroom #1 is beautifully equipped and has its own decorative fireplace.

The brand new kitchen (May 2014) offers stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a decorative backsplash. You'll enjoy cooking a family meal here after a great day at the beach or out seeing the beautiful sights of Northern Michigan with a fully stocked kitchen! The dining area with seating for 10 (2 additional table leafs available with chairs) is directly adjacent to the kitchen and opens up to the family room so you are never tucked away from family and friends. Also located on the main floor is the laundry room with large washer and dryer.

Make your way up the stairs and you will find 2 more good sized private bedrooms. Bedroom #3 has a KING sized bed (and 20 inch flat screen TV) and bedroom #4, or the bunk room, has matching twin and a twin/bunk (sleeps 3), as well as, a light and cheery full bath with double vanity and shower/tub combination. Two separate decks located at the back of the unit and accessible from the family room and one of the master bedrooms via sliding doors make for pleasant mornings and evenings or when you just need some alone time. The entire home has wireless high speed internet access for your enjoyment.

Summertime is incredible along the shores of Little Traverse Bay. Our renters enjoy a private beach house and a 2 mile long private beach that is only accessible to Harbor Cove residents and guests. Other association amenities include an outdoor pool and bathhouse. For those rainy days, take a dip in the indoor pool or hot tub and enjoy the sauna or use the clubhouse for private gatherings!

Northern Michigan is a mecca of sandy beaches, world class golf courses and unmatched sunsets over Lake Michigan. Shop and eat at the fantastic shopping and restaurant districts in Harbor Springs (2 mi), Petoskey (7 mi), Mackinaw City (30 mi) and Charlevoix (30 mi). Browse through the unique shops and boutiques at your leisurely pace and explore neighborhoods graced with elegant Victorian homes.

For a day trip, visit Mackinaw City, where ferryboats depart for Michigan's most popular tourist attraction, Mackinac Island. It is just a half hour away. Take the ferry over to the island, where cars are forbidden, and experience a horse-drawn carriage tour. Rent a horse and explore the island yourself. Take a bicycle-built-for-two and circle the island. Visit the Grand Hotel where Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour starred in the movie 'Somewhere in Time' and walk the longest porch in the world.

Come and experience a vacation destination like no other. We've got a home that will welcome your family here and keep you coming back year after year.

About Tim and Melissa

My wife and I have vacationed in Harbor Springs for over 25 years. When we had children 17 years ago, we spent at least 1 week in the summer and 1 week during the ski season here with our family. We have created so many great memories of Harbor Springs, and the surrounding areas that when this unit became available In Harbor Cove, we jumped at the opportunity to own our own piece of the area. Harbor Cove is really one of the best places to be in Harbor Springs with its beautiful setting, proximity to a private beach house and beach (considered the best on the bay by most!) the amenities for friends and families, and the general location to everything that you would want in a vacation destination. We hope you and your family enjoy our home and the area as much as we do and that you create your own family memories.

Tim and Melissa purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tim and Melissa chose Northern Michigan

After searching the area and looking at homes and condominiums in Harbor Springs and Petoskey, we decided that the location, beach, amenities and family friendly atmosphere in Harbor Cove was the best place to be located to enjoy our vacation rain or shine and anytime of the year.

What makes this condo unique

secluded location in the Northern Michigan Pines, private beach house and 1 mile long private beach attached to another 2 miles of beach, hiking trails, indoor/outdoor pool, hot tub sauna, club house, playground, close to Harbor Springs and Petoskey, and easy access to Mackinac Island, Beaver Island and the U.P.

We had a GREAT stay.

  • 5 of 5

A group of classmates from the Class of '75 wanted to get together in February and we rented the Cahill's condo. The Cahill's were very prompt in responding to our inquiries and we very much enjoyed our stay. It was very nice staying at a place that does not seem like it is lived in only be people renting the condo. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to rent in the area to rent this unit.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

Unit 66 in Harbor Cove was a great place to spend a week in summer! The condo had a beautiful kitchen and was well equipped. Pretty woodsy views from the wrap around deck. Close to the pools too! 2 first floor master suites and 2 upstairs bedrooms gives lots of flexible sleeping arrangements too. We want to come back!

Harbor Cove is a perfect place for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 including kids ages 8, 4, 2 and 2 had a great time at Harbor Cove. We rented two condos next to each other. Harbor Cove is laid back and perfect for kids with a beautiful beach, great pool, playground, tennis courts, and hiking trails and between Petoskey and Harbor Springs. This condo was perfect for the family and well furnished with everything you need for the week. The owners were extremely helpful and attentive. Highly recommended.

Harbor Cove condo

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family has rented condos at Harbor Cove since 1988. We have found that some are much better maintained than others. This condo was very nice. The kitchen is great! It is updated and well stocked with pots, pan, dishes, utensils etc. Sometimes it's the simple things that can make a difference. We appreciated that we could use the pantry. (It wasn't locked as it is in other condos) Also, the owners provided many essentials (paper products, soap, coffee filters etc.) so that we didn't have to immediately run out to the store for these items. We would rent this condo again. We enjoy using the pools, tennis courts, beach and the many nearby golf courses.

Warm and inviting condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family spent 4 nights in this beatiful condo. There was room for everyone in the spacious family room and bedrooms for each individual couple and a great bedroom for the kids! The kitchen is wonderfully renovated and the dining area has plenty of seating. The open floor plan allows for everyone to be together whether preparing a meal, dining, or relaxing on the couch. We will definitely be back!

Fabulous vacation spot between Harbor Springs and Petosky

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time with our family in this Harbor Cove condo. 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms was very helpful to house 8 adults and 2 babies. Kitchen was very nice, had spacious storage. Family room was large and spacious and able to fit us all comfortably. The only drawback we had was the open staircase for upstairs and 2 steps down to family room. With little ones it was a little challenging at first but worked it out with 2 chairs in front of staircase. The pools were great,able to bike in the area,lots of things to do in both towns. Just a fabulous place to vacation with family.

Petosky, a larger version of Harbor Springs is app. 9 miles away and has even more shops and restaurants in a beautiful setting also on the bay. Bay Harbor can been seen from the private beach and is app. 15 miles. Charlevoix, Mackinac Island, are all within 30 miles drive and are well worth the time if you can fit it in.
