Car: not necessary

Our family cottage is located below the bluff. In a small quiet downtown neighborhood. The kids love to walk to the beach, ice cream and donuts. We are lucky to be right in the middle of town to hear the church bells and still have a yard with room to play and enjoy evening bonfires with the family.

Great Location! Comfortable Layout!

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at this cottage! It is walkable to the beach, downtown, bike paths and the bluff- views up there are beautiful!

The layout was great for two families.

Thank you for a great week and many memories!!

Quaint cottage in heart of Harbor Springs

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful and updated cottage. It was quiet, peaceful and comfortable. Our kids enjoyed the bunk room and the king bed in the master was comfortable. The master shower was huge with hot water and perfect water pressure, which is important to me! No cable but we just used our Netflix in the evening. Location was perfect and within walking distance to all the restaurants and marina. The only negative was I took a gamble and didn't bring my hair dryer. I didn't find the hair dryer until the last day as I was checking drawers (bottom drawer in bedroom chest) to make sure we didn't leave anything. Didn't think to look for it anywhere outside of the bathrooms. Oh well! We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. The house should have HD cable TV I will check because I'm paying the bill each month. Sorry about that.

Beautiful Charming Cottage in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your home, it was beautiful and had so much character. The only issue was the air, it was so muggy the week we stayed and the window AC units just couldn't keep up at night. By the end of the week we came up with a good system to cool down the rooms, but it was warm.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I sent this in already but perhaps you did not receive.

We loved your home and had a wonderful time. However, better instructions of the A C unit as we did not have any air conditioning and it happened to be very hot that week. We put fans in the windows to keep cool.

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely adorable. It was very clean and contained everything we needed. It was also a short walk into downtown Harbor Springs and a very short drive to Petoskey. We will definitely rent this property again.

Great rental property

  • 5 of 5

We owned in Harbor Springs for years and have rented a number of homes over the past 2 years. This property is by far our favorite. It is well equipped and spacious enough for 4 adults and 2 children. The location is perfect because it is very close to town but still quiet and peaceful. The lack of cable/antennae for an October football weekend was our only complaint but the Apple TV sufficed. We would certainly rent this home again! Thank you!
