The cottage is located minutes away from the unique shops and restaurants of Harbor Springs and Petoskey. Public beaches are located in Harbor Springs and Petoskey. The beautiful Petoskey State Park on Lake Michigan is just a 10 minute drive and is great for family picnics, climbing on the dunes, swimming and hiking. GOLF!

For fun for kids of all ages, try the Great American Adventures water park which is a 16 minute drive from the cottage.

About Joan Cook-Mills

The cottage was built in 1998. We enjoy the cottage and views/sounds of the lake with family. The oversized deck is enjoyed by all. Even the teens look forward to staying and don't want to leave.

Joan Cook-Mills purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Joan Cook-Mills chose Harbor Springs

We love the secluded relaxing cottage and spend time going to beaches or playing games. Our favorite is listening to the lake and watching the wildlife. The cottage is so bright and roomy.

What makes this cottage unique

A benefit is the two oversized decks and lots of windows for light and views.

Relaxing at Harborview Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Harborview Cottage. Our favorite part was the sound of the waves that could be heard from the upstairs bedroom, kitchen and living room. This sound made us feel like we were on the beach at the ocean.

We also enjoyed the glider that you had strategically placed near the windows in the upstairs bedroom. We loved perching there to read a book, look out the window and relax.

Your cottage was very clean and well equipped. We also loved being close to Harbor Springs. The little beach in Harbor Springs was the perfect place for our four year old granddaughter to explore the surf and sand. We enjoyed visiting Pond Hill Farm, Mackinac Island and Legs Inn.

Thanks for creating such a great place to stay. We would like to come back.

Perfect location on the bluffs. Very private. Cottage has all your basic needs. Clean and well appointed. The sound of the waves, wonderful breezes, and beautiful color of Lake Michigan - soothing, healing and mesmerizing. Great therapy. Plan to return someday.

Comfortable, beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

My family has been visiting Harbor Springs for years. This was our first stay on the water since the Harborside Inn closed some years ago and we were delighted with the cottage. The view of the water is beautiful and the cottage clean and comfortable. May want to invest in auto-drip coffee maker for the caffeine addicted.
