Timeless style combines classic cottage appeal in this lovely and spacious studio! Built in 2008, this charmer is in the heart of town...easy walking or biking distance to the newly remodeled theater, cafes, shopping and marina...yet feels completely secluded. Nestled between high vegetation fencing in front and the bluff in back is a private and secluded courtyard with bubbling water feature...perfect for morning coffee, afternoon sunning or evening beverages! The newly added propane fire table provides added warmth and ambiance...pull up your chair and relax! With onsite garage parking (a HUGE bonus during busy season and winter) and 2nd floor living space, you'll find a modern kitchen and stylish bar, comfortable seating and queen bed dressed in fine linens, a quaint dining area and 2 french door viewing balconies to enjoy tranquil mornings and evening sunsets. The high pitched ceiling and cathedral windows add a special charm to the lofty feel. A small and functional bathroom w/shower is on the ground floor and is well supplied with over-sized bath towels and magnifying mirror. There is also a vintage pinball machine for the game lover in you! A wonderful place for honeymooning, a romantic anniversary, getaway or a simply relaxing retreat!

About Doug and Liana Peachey
We're the Peacheys...LOL! We do believe you'll find the property 'just peachy', too!
Doug and Liana Peachey purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Doug and Liana Peachey chose Harbor Springs
We fell in love with Harbor Springs and the surrounding communities our first visit years ago! When the opportunity arose to purchase this darling cottage, we were so excited....and are pleased to share with you, too! Such a peaceful place and yet so close to all the happenings of the town and area. It's perfect for 2...for you! We're adding 2 bedrooms and an upstairs bathroom this fall (Sept 2018). You'll want to come back and bring friends or family!
What makes this Cottage unique
The location just can't be beat! Walking distance to the theater, for example, is literally half a block, dining, shopping and lakefront/marina begins in 2 blocks. We are directly behind the museum, and less than 2 blocks from homemade cookies! You needn't worry about parking because we offer a garage....something very unique for Harbor Springs! You'll also appreciate the privacy and tranquility of the garden area for afternoon sunning/reading/napping and evenings around the fire table.

This Carriage house was awesome! Light, bright, beautiful décor, with roomy, cozy furnishings. Fantastic backyard area with beautiful landscaping and a bubbling fountain that sounded wonderful at night with the windows opened and the cool breeze coming through. The location was a block away from the main downtown area, yet set on a quiet street and so private. My husband and I can't wait to return. The house was pristinely clean and the owners included easy instructions for all the amenities. Communication with the owners was promptly answered. You cannot go wrong here, just delightful!!
We just love getting reviews such as this! We strive to provide what we would appreciate if we were on vacation, and are delighted to hear we have met our guests expectations!
Everything was incredible. Location - right next to, I mean RIGHT next to every luxury that you could ever want. Every part of their place is new and clean and working. Doug and Linda provided everything we thought we needed and didn't know we needed. The garden was beautiful, the privacy was superb, and we just loved every minute of it. We very much would want to stay in the same place.
Unique and beautiful cottage in beautiful Harbor Springs
This comfortable, immaculate cottage/carriage house is perfectly located within easy walking distance of downtown Harbor Springs. The backyard gardens are gorgeous and perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee, an evening glass of wine or afternoon book-reading. The space is smallish and cozy, but offers all of the amenities and beautiful decor. Perfect for a couple. Highly recommend!
Very cute home with a lovely garden. It was great to be so close to downtown Harbor Springs. Bathroom is downstairs apart from the living area.
We loved the place and the location
We loved the place and the location. Lovely back/side yard, close to town in a beautiful neighborhood. Very comfortable furnished with many amenities. The owners were very responsive to any issues that we had. We enjoyed the fact that bikes were included for us to ride. The only reason we give it 4 stars instead of 5 stars is because the bathroom is on the lower level. We had a great stay.
Thanks for the lovely review! The fuel for the fire table ran out but we had it filled and lit for our guests enjoyment within a couple of hours. Not something we could anticipate and we shouldn't run out again for months! As for the ground floor bathroom, it might be a tiny bit inconvenient at night however we do state the bathroom is downstairs. Please do read all other reviews for a full measure of how guests have enjoyed the property. For those considering renting with us but maybe looking for a larger place, please keep in mind we are adding a downstairs bedroom as well as an upstairs bedroom & bath this fall. Construction begins mid-Sept 2018 and is expected to be completed by early Dec 2018.
Perfect location and cozy, comfortable accommodations!
This property has it all. An ideal location with a quick and easy walk to downtown, a garage, washer and dryer, beautiful landscaping, and lots of small details like Keurig coffee for the guests. Very clean and the architecture is fantastic. The owners were prompt in responding to our inquiries and a pleasure to deal with. We plan to visit again soon!
We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again next year!
Summer visitors will enjoy shopping in downtown Harbor Springs, walking along the waterfront, and cycling through town and along the many biking trails.
The Farmers Market, local fudge makers and ice cream shops beckon to those 'little something' cravings. There are many great restaurants and bars to explore, all within a couple blocks.
Summer Market is Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:00 to 1:00 through Labor Day and then Saturdays only through mid-October.
The "Tunnel of Trees" offers outstanding day trips up M-119 to Cross Village and the historic Leggs Inn, while enjoying splendid views of Lake Michigan.
Fall season brings crisp air, vivid changing colors, apples, pumpkins, and wine tours.
In the winter, excellent skiing is only minutes away at Nub's Nob and Boyne Highlands!
A few recommendations of where to go:
Good Hart General store up M-119 for basics and touristy stuff as well as delicious prepared foods. The pot pies are to die for!
Legs Inn at Cross Village for a great menu featuring local Polish dishes or drinks in a unique atmosphere.
Sturgeon Bay beach for an uncrowded day along the water. Great for picnicking!
Gurneys Deli in Harbor Springs (combined with the liquor store but don't let that deter you) for the best sandwiches.
Turkey's in Harbor Springs for scrumptious pizza. Dine in and enjoy a wonderful salad, too.
Cupola in Harbor Springs for the most delightful ambiance and best breakfasts on the planet!
A quick run to Mackinac Island offers visiting the historic fort, bicycling around the island, horse drawn carriage tours, photo ops at Arch Rock, and of course the famous Grand Hotel...a few things that will fill a day!
