About Dave

I remember counting the mile markers from the backseat as we headed north on Interstate 75 with my Uncles Harry and Bert and cousin Pat. Traveling from the flatlands and cornfields of Ohio, over the state line and into the fir and birch trees that soon began dotting the Northern Michigan landscape. We drove over the Mackinac bridge and on into Canada to fish for trout and northern pike in what became the most remote place I'd ever been. That first time north, I recall the temperature contrast, even in August as the humidity in the south gave way to the dryer, more comfortable air to the north. I couldn't believe the climate difference a few hundred miles north by car could make and I knew then I'd be back someday.

I came back in my early 20's and took a job on Mackinac Island. Working as a dock porter, my main responsibility was to "meet and greet" hotel guests at the ferry dock. As dock porters, we were the first point of contact with the guest and we'd often take their luggage by bicycle to the several hotels and bed and breakfasts on the island. In reflection, Dockporting was the most autonomous, joyful, and healthful job I ever had. I was paid to ride a Schwinn bicycle!

On my days off, my Schwinn and I would take the ferry to the Mackinac City. From there, I'd pedal south on M119. Passing through Good Hart, I'd take a break and sit on the old wooden bench outside the general store, head back, leaning into the summer sun. Soon, I'd venture a few miles further south passing historic Legg's Inn before hitting that gradual grade downward through the "canopy of trees" into Harbor Springs. Harbor Springs was my destination then, and I'm so thrilled now to literally have a little corner of this charming village that I can call my own and I'm so happy now be able to share it with you :)

Dave purchased this studio in 2014

Why Dave chose Northern Michigan

LOCATION, COMFORT, and CONVENIENCE. 103 West Main is in the heart of downtown Harbor Springs. You're at the corner of State and Main streets and everything that this great community has to offer is a minute from your doorstep. Leave your car keys on the kitchen countertop as restaurants like the Pier, The New York, and Guerney's sandwich shop are a block away. Boutique clothing shops and coffee houses are at the bottom of your steps. The marina, the beach, and the bluff are also, 1-2 blocks away.

103 has been contemporarily appointed with comfort and couples in mind. Two plush lounge chairs in the living area give you freedom to relax and forget about time. The space comes with a California King Size bed and will ensure a good nights sleep. LED and pendant lighting (dimmer controlled) will set the mood while window treatments can either let the sunshine in, or block it out. There is a 42'' flat-screen HDTV with cable and Wifi in the air if you opt to stay connected, but only if you wish :)

What makes this studio unique

Outside your door to Main street you'll be in the center of town instantly. Awake to the fresh smells of the farmers' market in the Summertime and fall asleep to the glow of the Christmas tree display during the winter.

Amazing location and a perfect flat

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was perfect for our week-long summer stay:

Location: Right in the heart of downtown. After walking around Harbor Springs all week, I'm confident we couldn't have picked a better rental to stay in. You're in the middle of everything, within a 2 minute walk to the harbor, shops, and restaurants.

Interior: The unit is furnished and appointed very well. Everything you need has been taken care of. The bed is comfy, the bathroom has a heater, the kitchen is well equipped. The TV is modern and large, though we never turned it on!

Finally, Dave is very attentive and communicative. He has provided all the info you'll need (parking, keys, WiFi, etc), printed out in the unit.

My husband and myself absolutely loved this rental. The location doesn't get any better if you like downtown experiences. Unit was a perfect size for a couple and very clean. Parking wasn't a problem at all.

I can't wait to come back and stay again.

Well located condo in Harbor Springs

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay - condo was well furnished, with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable king size bed. Views on three sides of unit, with large windows in each side looking onto downtown and harbor. We will definitely consider staying here on our next visit.
