Harbor Springs condo description

Welcome to our cozy northern retreat. Our condo offers the tranquility of a secluded, woodsy setting with all the creature comforts of home, but not the 'creatures' that come with roughing it.

Savor Northern 'Pure Michigan' in every season, from festivals and fairs, farmers markets and fine shops to the sandy shores of Little Traverse Bay or any number of inland lakes. Ski the wonderful local slopes or ride the snowmobile trails. Explore the trails and dunes, ferry over to Mackinac Island, Sea Doo or water ski on any of the inland lakes nearby.

Then come back to home base and feel yourself relax when you enter on the main level and find the comfy living room, dining room, kitchen, and convenient half bath. Curl up with a good book or one of our many movies next to the wood fireplace or take a deep breath of fresh Michigan air out on the deck as you catch a glimpse of the wooded golf course through the trees.

The King Master Bedroom and bath, twin bedroom with bunk beds and queen bedroom with full bath provide quiet and comfort on the upper level. Additional sofa bed pulls out to sleep two more in the basement living room. Snuggle up in our recently added queen bedroom with full bathroom in the basement.

Kick off your shoes or ski boots and grab a book or movie, pop some popcorn and enjoy true R & R.

Bring your laptop or other wireless device (if you must), we have wireless internet for our guests.

As the reviews reveal, this condo is a great place to stay while taking in the multitude of options that beautiful Northern Michigan has to offer in all four seasons. We've tried to provide most of the 'creature comforts' you might need while staying at our condo. *Just added a Keurig coffee maker, in addition to our regular coffee maker, so bring your own pods if you're a Keurig fan!

The winter season is perfect for cross-country and downhill skiing at nearby Nubs Nob, Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain ski resorts. Strap on the snow shoes and take a hike on one of the many trails close by. Leave your boots in the garage and come in after a long day of skiing to enjoy a crock pot of chili next to the crackling fire.

Spring and fall in northern Michigan provide nice, quiet retreats, trail hikes, Morel mushroom hunting, farmers markets, downtown shopping, plays and classes in Petoskey, color tours of the gorgeous foliage, bike rides, golfing and beach walking.

Summertime renters enjoy amenities that include a heated outdoor pool, play area and tennis courts, hiking, golfing on the picturesque Little Traverse Bay 18 hole public golf course and many other terrific courses in the area, shopping in the quaint Petoskey and Harbor Springs shops, weekend farmers markets, strolls on the nearby beach at Petoskey State Park as well as public access to many local inland lakes. Some of the best fireworks in the area can be found on the bay during the fourth of July. After a long day of adventure, come back and relax on the deck while dinner sizzles on the grill.



Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic weekend away, a family ready for some quality time in the great outdoors, or a group of up to 10 who just want to reconnect, we think you’ll find our Hideaway Condo to be a great fit for your Up North plans, no matter what the season.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: We are a family of four from Ohio who loves Northern Michigan and all it has to offer. This condo is our 'home away from home' and we've tried to stock it with things we like to enjoy up there. We are interested in renting to kind strangers who understand that this place is special to us, and will respect our property, use it gently and leave it as they found it.

                      Why the Owner Chose Harbor Springs:
                      We love every season of Northern Michigan and had rented places up there many times before buying a place of our own. It's far enough away to feel like a vacation, but close enough to drive to. It's private and secluded, yet it's not 'camping' or roughing it. It feels like home when we are there.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      We love all of the things we can do together while at our condo, such as hiking on nearby trails. Long, lazy days at Petoskey State Park beach. Skiing Nubs and Boyne Highlands. Shopping in downtown Petoskey & Harbor Springs. Supporting local farm markets. Preparing our own meals with our own food. Watching movies and playing games together. We also love to explore the endless attractions, such as Mackinac Island, Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes and the Upper Pennisula. Our location makes a nice 'base' to come home to after each adventure.
