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!

Clean, big, comfortable, great location !

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful long weekend! The house was very clean, the beds were so comfortable, the decor was so sweet - very shabby chic. The showers in both upstairs bathrooms were huge and new. We are definitely adding this to our list of places to stay again 👍👍👍

Adorable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

As first time visitors to Harbor Springs, we not only found the town to be wonderfully quaint, but this cottage made us feel truly apart if it. This house is beautifully decorated, very clean, and comfortable. Though it rained our entire stay, it was still very enjoyable. A short walk to the downtown area. This property did not disapoint. :)

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.
