Why Richard Pickett chose Northern Michigan

Everything in this home has been updated. Furniture, mattresses, linens, towels, down to the potato peeler, every thing is new. Pictures of this lovely home doesn't quite capture.

What makes this house unique

Stained glass windows from Harbor Springs First Presbyterian Church are over 120 years old. Fire pit for hot dog and marshmallows. Sit and rock your cares away on the patio by the lake. Simply beautiful!

Convenient out of the way location, luxurious, spacious, with everything you could possibly need

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this unique amazingly furnished, spotlessly clean, multiple indoor and outdoor spaces to relax in. It sits on a small lake with beautiful lilly pads in bloom, and is just off a trail to easily walk or bike to Lake MI. We enjoyed sitting on the comfortable patio looking at the pretty views and also the easy walk to Lake MI. The lay out was perfect for us allowing privacy for all of us. We enjoyed the artwork in the house so much seeing something different each time we walked into a room. Everything necessary to cook and entertain was present in the gourmet kitchen. Would definitely recommend!

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5

The house is phenomenal, immaculate and very relaxing. Its tough to stay awake in the yard staring at the water. Lots of great naps. The weather wasn't so good but the house kept the trip great! With petosky brewery just a few steps away, you don't even have to get in the car to have a great craft beer and some food. Short drive to many northern michigan towns and the UP. Would definitely recommend this to anybody!!!

Awesome Artwork, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the house enough justice. It's really great and my whole family enjoyed the unique paintings, statues and decor. Will be returning and would recommend to anyone.

Interesting, Comfortable House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This house is even more visually interesting than it appears in the pictures. It is also spacious and comfortable. The outdoor space is an added bonus -- we spent quiet, sunny afternoons reading out on the patio by the lake and evenings chatting under the stars. The location is near a main road and a major bike path, but because of the siting of the house right on a lake it is also very quiet and private. Finally, the owner was extremely responsive and easy to deal with. The only cautionary notes: Be careful of the step down from the master bedroom (takes some getting used to) and the metal ridge that separates the tile in the kitchen and the carpet in the den (good place to twist an ankle, as one of us did). Overall, a unique, beautiful, comfortable, quiet property that our party of two couples enjoyed immensely. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, peaceful setting. Landscaping was beautiful, the house was very uniquely decorated and featured several beautiful oil paintings by the home owner, as well as other artists. A word I might use to describe the décor would be "eclectic". When I had occasion to speak with the owner, he was extremely polite and helpful. I would definitely consider returning.

Great For Couples

  • 5 of 5

WOW! What a place.

We were a group of three couples in the area for a wedding at the Inn at Bay Harbor. This house was a great choice! Plenty of room for us all, and so beautifully decorated. A treat for the eyes, and not just for the ladies, our husbands were impressed also.

The location worked out very well too. Approximately 15 minutes from the wedding, Petoskey State Park about 5 minutes down the road (great beach area) and the bike/walking path goes right by the house!

We enjoyed breakfast on the patio in the mornings, and spent time around the fire pit relaxing in the evenings. You must take the time to enjoy every room in the house and take in all the details of the decor. The Master Bedroom and Bath were stunning - good luck deciding which lucky couple gets that room :)

The owner was great to work with, responding quickly to any questions we had. Thank you for sharing your lovely home, we are already talking about going back up for a fall trip.
