Harbor Springs house description

OPEN ALL YEAR!!

For your Fall Color Tour, Cozy Family Thanksgiving, Holiday & Winter Ski Getaways, Spring Break, and Summer Vacations!!

New in 2006, this cottage style home has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a total living area 2,400 sq. ft. Plenty of room to spread out. This house is truly designed with the family in mind, with separate spaces for the grown-ups and kids alike.

Vintage Mod, Baby! It's luxurious, with a retro feel - sure to evoke a flashback or two. The shag carpeting, custom ceramic tile, custom woodwork and a mix of retro antiques and custom furniture (not to mention a few surprises), will help make this a vacation to remember.

Located in Harbor Springs opposite Lake Michigan on the famous Tunnel of Trees - a top destination for bicyclists. You're close to such vacation spots as Petoskey, Charlevoix, Cross Village, The Inland Water Way and The Straits of Mackinaw.

Atop this 130' bluff, witness panoramic views that will allow you to see all the way to Charlevoix and on some days even Beaver Island! Enjoy these views from the home as well as from the meandering bluffside staircase with secluded sun deck that leads to the very private sandy frontage on Lake Michigan. Reminiscent of America's Pacific Northwest, you can walk for miles up, and down the beach without seeing a single person.
