Manager info

About: We live part of the year in nearby Petoskey and part of the year in Ohio. This home has been in our family for decades and we're delighted to share it with you. (We have great staff who work with us to care for the property and help our guests.)

Why Birchwood Farms, Harbor Springs, MI, USA:
This property is spacious, attractive, tasteful and clean. You can watch a movie in the third floor entertainment center, while others soak in the hot tub on the garden level as some play cards in the main level living room as still others sit in the sunroom looking for deer in the woods. In summer 2016, we engaged in a thorough update. From installing new flat screen televisions to a new refrigerator in the main kitchen (one of three in the home), we have taken steps to insure that this home meets and exceeds your expectations. New beautiful flooring is being added to the lower level.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If requested, we can provide full concierge service. From grocery delivery to golf or tennis arrangements, we can make sure that your time in the Great North is amazing. Private chef, lift tickets delivered to your door, maid or laundry service...You name the amenity and we will work to bring it to you.
