We are born and raised in Michigan but now reside in the Los Angeles area with our three children. We get back to our cottage as often as our schedule allows us. We love the quiet and natural beauty surrounding our home and of course the nearby private beach.
A great place to relax and get away from the daily grind.
Dan and Julie Murphy purchased this house in 2014
House was originally constructed in 1999. We purchased in Sept of 2014 and are thrilled to have a home back in Michigan. Harbor Springs is a beautiful New England styled city on the banks of Little Traverse Bay with terrific restaurants and quaint shops.
Its known for its fresh air, spectacular beauty and hospitality.
A short 4 mile drive south is Petoskey which also has a great downtown area.
Northwest Lower Michigan is an outdoorsman's dream with an abundance of activities including cycling, fishing, golf, kayak, sailing, zip lining etc...
In the winter a paradise for skiers and snowboarders.
This property is beautiful, well furnished, clean, and comfortable! It has all the beach toys one could want and it is close to Harbor Springs. The decks are great if you aren't of a mind to go down to the beach. Julie Murphy is wonderful to work with; and, frankly, we can't wait to go back!
This home offers it all including the beauty of having Lake Michigan as the backdrop. The house itself is spacious and modern with lovely decorative touches that provide a feeling of warmth and comfort. It was clean and well equipped from the beach to the pantry. Julie is a very gracious owner and we so appreciate her hospitality. The location is perfect...close enough to HS, yet private enough to offer R & R. Thank so much Julie..we will be back!
This is a wonderful rental. House is as described, comfortable, cozy, well kept, beautifully decorated and it has everything needed for a great stay. The view of the beach from every room and the strong sound of the waves is super relaxing. Watching the sunsets from the deck while having dinner outside was a memorable experience for me and my friends. Julie, the owner was great to work with, flexible, very responsive and provided great recommendations to fully enjoy the quaint town of Harbor Springs and make the most of our stay. I am looking forward to going back!
The cottage was exactly as described - beautiful, quiet and serene. It was wonderfully decorated with local nautical themes, and had just about any amenity you'd want. The location was superb - near the charming, elegant but low key town of Harbor Springs in one direction, and the pine and cedar filled woods (in the famous "Tunnel of Trees") heading to wilder north country in the other. The cottage and its generous deck were perched above a glorious Lake Michigan. We spend alot of time listening to the surf and watching the sialboats go by. We had the private white sand beach and swimming to ourselves. We could have been more active - paddle boards and bikes were available. At night, you could have a campfire on the beach - a rare luxury these days - and even see the Milky Way. The owner was a delight. I would unhesitatingly recommend this rental to a friend and relative. In fact, I hope we can return next year.
Our cottage is located 5 miles north of Harbor Springs. Nestled along the deepest harbor in the Great Lakes Harbor Springs is a bustling tourist destination since before the turn of the century. Harbor Springs and its surrounding areas offer an abundance of natural beauty and four seasons of outdoor activities. You will enjoy an array of cultural and culinary attractions that continually delight visitors as well as provide an uncomplicated tranquility to residents.
Located in the Little Traverse Bay area of Northern Michigan, Harbor Springs offers four seasons of events and activities for all ages to experience, explore and enjoy. Our cottage is located at the gateway to the iconic and scenic M-119 Tunnel of Trees, a harbinger for our area’s natural beauty.
