Why Jack R. Owner chose Harbor Springs
When we saw this historic artist cottage steps from beautiful Lake Michigan we immediately fell in love. This 100 year old artist community Chippewa Cove was founded by local artist Ivan Swift and was the site of many of his works of art. The cottage sits at the North end of the community and offers a real private and quiet experience. In addition to having over 100' of lake frontage there is an additional 250' of private park frontage for you to enjoy! This property is a real gem! Like our facebook page @swiftcottagegoodhart

We absolutely loved staying at Swift Cottage -- it is a magical place, and we can't wait to return!!
Family vacation to Swift Cottage
Swift Cottage is truly a special treat in northern Michigan! Just off of the tunnel of trees, (which is a must if ever in the area) the property offers a beautiful sandy beach and unmatchable views of the sunset. Yet it still has that upnorth woods feel with muture trees and camp fire. The cottage itself is tastefully decorated and gives off cozy vibes. If youre looking for a peaceful and private getaway, Swift is the perfect spot! You could go all week without leaving the home and be perfectly happy, but down town harbor springs is a short 20 min drive. My family has vacationed in many homes arcoss the united states, but this is the 1st home weve booked for a 2nd stay! That itself says ALOT about the beauty of Swift Cottage. Thank you for opening your home to us!
Amazing place, location, amenities
Don't get me wrong, the pictures are amazing.. but they don't do all the justice this place deserves.. Owners are fantastic and extremely responsive. The cottage is in amazing with everything you would need. This place is a MUST VISIT!!! Not too many places that have this kind of view and lake frontage. Will definitely visit again!!!
We'll be going back for sure!
What a beautiful place to stay! The view is stunning. Private beach access was perfect for our whole family. The house was thoughtfully renovated, while maintaining the cottage charm and was the perfect amount of space for our group. The owners were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. We can't wait to book for next year. Thanks for a lovely week!
What a perfect location. The house was beautiful with all the accommodations needed! The beach is practicall private. We spent a lot of time on the sandy beach which is just a few steps from the house. We will be back. Highly recommend!
Loved our stay at Swift Cottage!!!
We loved our stay at Swift Cottage. The house is nicely updated. Everyone raved about the comfort of the beds. The kitchen was well appointed, with all of the equipment a couple of home chefs could want. Best of all is the outdoor space - from the fire pit with comfy Adirondack chairs to watch the sunsets or drink your morning coffee, to the long and gorgeous sandy beach to swim and play all day. It was the perfect vacation getaway
And you are just over a mile away from the store at Good Hart to grab delicious baked goods or their famous pot pies.
We’ve stayed in several houses in the area over the years, and I can honestly say this is our favorite.
We can’t wait to come back next year.
Both the owner, Jack, and the caretaker, Ryan, were easy to work with and wanted to make sure we had a wonderful stay.
