About the property

SF House, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 in beds)

Come explore the relaxing comfort of the crisp fresh air and sparkling artesian water of Harbor Springs. House is within city limits where there are two beaches, three world-class marinas, boutiques, galleries, entertainment and distinctive restaurants. And this beautiful and spacious home (1,900 sq. ft.) located on the west bluff is within walking distance to it all.

House comes with baby gates at top and bottom of stairs as well as front porch. Highchair, crib and diaper changing pad for top of dresser. Nearly all power outlets have covers. No car seats provided.

Start your morning off right by enjoying a cup of coffee while sitting on the front porch watching sail boats on Little Traverse Bay. Take a short drive to Pond Hill Farm to feed the pigs and buy some amazing canned goods. Then stop by Bluff Gardens and pick up some fresh fruit for your lunch. Later in the afternoon, you can stroll down the waterfront, admiring the magnificent turn-of-the-century summer cottages, or ride your bikes into town for an ice cream and view the many boats along the pier. Harbor Springs offers both formal and casual dining, or head out to one of our many fresh markets and have a barbeque on the back deck. And it's all just 5 miles from Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands!!

Also visit nearby Petoskey and Charlevoix for dining, shopping and exploring galore . . . or you can just sit back and do nothing but simply enjoy a little piece of paradise. Happiness is Harbor Springs!

Clean, comfortable, well located

  • 5 of 5

The house is comfortable and spacious and accommodated our family of nine (6 adults, a teen, a child and a toddler) quite well. The only thing that would make it slightly more accommodating for us would be a queen-size bed in the upstairs front bedroom in place of the full-size (double) bed. Both the living room and dining room worked well for us and were comfortable. The location is great; though not right on the water, there's a pleasant view of the bay from the front porch. Petoskey is just a few minutes' drive away, and the wonderful Pond Hill Farm is even closer. The house is aptly named because Harbor Springs beach and village are truly a pleasant walk away. I recommend this house for a relaxing and enjoyable getaway.

This house is in a perfect location with a great view of the water from the front porch. It's relaxing and quiet and has all the amenities. The neighbors on both sides are great. We had room for ourselves and our 8 children easily. The cottage was clean and neatly decorated and everything was thoroughly explained by the owners in the welcome letter. The homeowners are very helpful, nice and respond VERY quickly with any questions or concerns you have from the start. We were able to walk to downtown and Harbor Beach. It's a short drive to Petoskey State Park and the ski slopes for winter. We enjoyed the farmers market, local musicians, the yearly Harbor Springs garage sales and Shay days. My husband is from here so we come here every year (20 years) and he has family in town and close by who were able to stop in for a visit. This is our first stay at this home and we would definitely like to stay here again next year. Highly recommend!

We had an excellent time!

  • 5 of 5

This 4 bedroom house was perfect for my family's vacation to Harbor Springs. A quick walk or bike ride to town and the public beach. The front porch had an amazing view of the trees and water. The owners were responsive and accommodating. I can not wait to book my return visit next year.

Clean, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Overall the place was great. We really enjoyed hanging out on the front porch and walking to downtown Harbor. The space was very equipped with children's necessities. We had a little trouble with noise volume, it just seemed to travel easily between rooms. Besides that, the place was lovely!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 6 adults, we can't say enough good things about our stay here. The house was stocked with everything you could need and the perfect size with plenty of space. The location was perfect to walk to town for the wonderful shops and delicious food. Our favorite part was the view on the front porch. We watched the sail boats and enjoyed the beautiful, calming scenery. Already looking forward to returning. Thanks for a great trip!
