About Alyssa Briggs

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 Alyssa Briggs chose Harbor Springs

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Amazing

I stayed here with 15 friends during a ski trip to Boyne Highlands, and the place was absolutely great! It is a very nice house with lots of great areas to hang out in. I'd highly recommend staying here to anyone.

Owner's Response: We take real joy in being able to rent this home to people who appreciate it. At one time, it was our family's vacation home. Now, our children live across the country and it's too difficult for us to be together very often. We take real pleasure in knowing that the home that meant so much to our family is able to provide happiness for others. We try very hard to take care of it and love sharing it with those who appreciate it.

Comfortable spacious house

  • 4 of 5

We loved being near Harbor Springs and the nature park nearby. We truly enjoyed this home for our reunion. Lots of great pots, pans and dishware. Thank you for allowing us to use your home.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience and we would love to come back to stay at the same property. Alyssa was very helpful, answered the questions that we had very fast and accommodated us when we had a member of our group stay longer on the last day. I can't say enough about the house: from the beautifully decorated rooms, gorgeous fireplace, more than enough bathrooms equipped with everything one needs, heated hot tub (unfortunately we didn't have time to use it), children's playhouse and so much more.

I would recommend staying here if you go with a big group and want a quality stay at a very effordable price. Thanks again!

Beautiful winter getaway place

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 13 friends staying here for four nights. Lots of room for everyone! It has a great large kitchen with every appliance and utensil needed. The fireplace made for great fires. The deer out the windows were icing on the cake. Cross country and down hill skiing near by. The hot tub and sauna helped comfort our sore muscles. Our only problem with this beautiful place was trying to keep all the bedrooms at comfortable temperatures.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments. We have notified our HVAC team and they are working on this. (We just installed a new heating/cooling system on the top level and the installers have had some difficulties.) We are also investigating moving the thermostat away from the fireplace. We appreciate your feedback and will resolve the issue asap.

This rental home was amazing. Very private, peaceful and the area is just breathtaking. We held a small wedding there and it was perfect!! Lots of space for everyone and owners were so nice to work with. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone that has a big group and wants beautiful place to stay. This is the one!!! There is plenty to do in town of Harbor Springs and in the city of Petosky is not too far either. All of our guests had a great time!! Thanks so much for the wonderful hospitality!
