Property description

Cheerful warm condo with bright natural light and high (11') ceilings. We welcome guests with wine (your choice at Gurney's Bottle Shop across the street), egyptian linens (professionally cleaned and pressed), and an authentic downtown Harbor Springs location.

Top floor of the historic bank building on Main Street. Elegant styling. Comfortable Living. Very Hi-Speed WiFi.

Remodeled and re-furnished in 2010. This 1500 sq. ft. condo is 1 of 4 privately owned apartments in this 125 year-old town hub, commercial building.

Located in the center of downtown, the apartment is ideally located across Bay Street from Little Traverse Bay (view, however, is onto Main Street), with restaurants and shopping at your doorstep.

Aficionados of the area, know there are romantic, elegant and secret places all around Harbor Springs.

After a vigorous day of boating (or skiing), swimming, hiking, (snow-shoeing),biking, golfing, tennis (at the waterfront, with lights for night play), shooting skeet (seriously) or whatever in the playlands of Emmet County, why not head for downtown civilization?

Relax with wine in front of the fireplace, while watching High Definition TV or playing cards & Monopoly in your Main Street apartment. After your full day, come home to covered parking and an elevator ride to your 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo. Enjoy excellent dining, bountiful shopping, antiquing and museums all within 2 blocks. Walk along the Little Traverse Bay. Take in the amazing starry night sky and hope for a display of Northern Lights. Look forward to a relaxing evening. Prepare dinner at home in the unusually well-equipped kitchen or simply take the elevator down to street for surprisingly delightful restaurants. Don't forget to visit the museums and other shops.

Need a baby-sitter? Pre-arrival refrigerator stock-up? Airport pick-up? Movies? Ski rentals? Cross country trails? Etc., etc. - Just let me know and we can fulfill most requests.

My family has 'summered' in Harbor Springs since 1923, and we would not miss a single year. As our guest, you will have the unique opportunity to share in the warmth of the community and the loveliness of the Summer (and Winter) season in Northern Michigan.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My family has lived in Harbor Springs for nearly 100 years. I know this area well and have put many of my favorite places and activities on the map for you to enjoy.

Why the Owner Chose Harbor Springs:
My Grandmother spent the summer of 1923 in Northern Michigan because she had a very sick infant who needed fresh air and cool nights. The doctor had told Granny that her son might not make it thru the hot, pollen-laden summer heat of Louisville. Granny was so pleased with the climate and her child's return to health, that she bought a cottage that year and spent every summer in Harbor Springs until she died in 1983. My mother who was a teacher carried on the tradition.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
1)Harbor Springs is charming and full of interesting shops and places to visit. 2) Reserved covered parking 3) Elevator from ground parking area to the 3rd. floor apartment. 4) across street from Gurney's Liquors! 5) 6 restaurants-Stafford's Pier;New York, Turkeys Cafe-pizza;Cornichous Two- omelets;Harbor Bar-great burgers;Chart Room-fish; all within 2 block area!! 6) Did I mention the Fudge Shop and Ice Cream Store next to the Liquor Store? Across Main St. 7) Try 'Wooly Bugger' for newspaper and coffee. 8) Free WiFi in apartment.
