Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Harbor Springs - Cottage Next Door

Large deck. Walk to downtown & beach. Near bike trail, playgound, & grocery.

Nicely appointed, comfy home with fully stocked kitchen, family room and 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Two bedrooms have attached baths - Q bed in one en suite and K bed in the other en suite. Good storage in closets and dressers. The home sleeps 6 comfortably.

The kitchen is easy to work in with all appliances including microwave and coffee maker. The dining area seats 6-8 comfortably.

Two televisions are provided in upper and lower living spaces and master (K) bdrm. Stereo and games also provided in lower level living space.

The family room is a nice respite after a day on the slopes or at the beach. The bright room provides a view of flowering bushes and trees in backyard through the sliding doors to the deck.

This large deck off the family room, overlooking the large backyard, provides a nice opportunity for outdoor dining (at umbrella tables) and relaxation, as well as a nice play space for adults and kids alike. Enjoy some time under the umbrella or on a lounger with a cool beverage on one of the many sunny days in summer.

This home is located within walking distance to all the town has to offer - shops, restaurants and take-out, tennis courts, playgrounds, marina, beach, grocery (less than 2 blocks away!), boat and bike rentals, and churches.

There is a laundry room on the lower level to minimize the need to haul extra bags on planes/in cars.

For larger families/reunions this owner provides a second property, situated next door, for those who wish for additional space. Together the homes can accommodate 12-15 people. View additional property at vrbo #350797.

About Barbara Arnold

I am a professor of Graduate Studies in Education in Ohio. I grew up spending my summers in Harbor Springs. I appreciate all the seasons in this beautiful town. My children have also enjoyed their summers here. And I am hoping that soon they will have children that will also be fortunate enough to be able to share summer memories of the beautiful Bay and the surrounding areas.

Barbara Arnold purchased this house in 2012

Why Barbara Arnold chose Northern Michigan

I chose this property because of my fond memories from youth and because there is something for everyone to enjoy in each of the seasons. Whether it is relaxing on the deck, walking or biking in the neighborhood, shopping on Main St., golfing, boating, beaching or skiing, there is fun to be had. Located next door is another rental that can be used for larger groups and/or family reunions. Ask about that if you are interested.

What makes this house unique

The large backyard is a great spot for hanging out with large deck off the family room. The family room itself is cheery and restful. The kitchen is easy to work in and lends itself to helpers who can keep you company while being creative. The location is great - close enough to all the sports you want to enjoy. Buggy rides in the summer will pass by this home - fun for everyone. Located next door is another rental that can be used for larger groups and/or family reunions. Ask about that if you are interested (vrbo #350797).

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the weekend and were immediately impressed with how clean and welcoming the place looked! There was plenty of sleeping space and living space. We didn't take full advantage of all the outdoor seating and fire pit but it was so nice to have the option! We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Lovely, well maintained property

  • 4 of 5

The home is well supplied and immaculately clean. It's 1 block from the grocery store but pretty much had everything we could possibly want.

Clean, comfortable, convenient.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this very nice 4 bedroom house that has the perfect amenities for a week in wonderful Harbor Springs Michigan. The owner is very nice and easy to communicate with. The house is very pleasant with a warm inviting feel. The garage has plenty of space for our bikes and toys. Most notable is how clean it is. Comfortable beds, three full bathrooms and a central kitchen with dishwasher and updated appliances. A large driveway meant no car shuffling and plenty of parking. The house is an easy bike ride away from downtown and is in a nice neighborhood. I recommend this house and would certainly stay there again. If you rent this house and need to accommodate more people, the same owner rents the house next door too.

Convenient to downtown Harbor Springs

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and you also get a bonus 4th bedroom. Barbara was very courteous and responded quickly to our queries. Would definately recommend staying here if you are in the Harbour Springs area. Grocery store is a block away and it is walkable to Main Street ( about 10 minute stroll).

Great Winter Weekend Getaway Close to Downtown Harbor Springs

  • 5 of 5

This is a darling cottage home that is much bigger and nicer than the pictures show!! Lots of room to spread out for the adult kids. Great amenities from the kitchen being well stocked to our bedding/linens!! Made me feel right at home! I think the only thing missing is a hot tub!!! ;) Barbara answered all my questions right away and gave us some great recommendations for dining out! Wish we could have stayed a few days longer!!

Great option for flight crew

  • 5 of 5

We had to find a place near the Pellston airport and found this home. It was a great alternative to a hotel for 4 days. It is a nice clean home and only 25 minutes from the airport. We were very pleased with the rental and the manager. Would recommend for anyone needing a place to stay in this area.
