About Eric Russell
I am from the East Coast and I married into an extended family from down state that has vacationed, owned property or lived in Good Hart for more then 120 years. Like them I have learned to love this area. The beaches, the water, the privacy are all unique in this area. We also love the style and feel of this A-Frame along with it's views and location. When we outgrew the house we could not bear to part with it so have kept it to share with others. If you need to talk with me about this property call at 1 508 479 5751
Eric Russell purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Eric Russell chose Harbor Springs
This cottage is a bright sun filled environment with a modern feel in which to relax on vacation. Located on one of the most secluded sandy beaches anywhere, quiet and privacy are assured here as there are so few neighbors. Finally we hope clients who stay here once will feel that they have found the place to come back to, as we do.
What makes this Cottage unique
Quiet, secluded, place to walk, swim, bike and RELAX.

Lovely Woods Escape
Many thanks to Eric and family for sharing their rental property with us. The cabin is perched at the edge of the dunes and every west-facing window in the living space is filled with views of the lake. It was a really cold week and we appreciated the extra wood delivery for the wood stove to heat the cabin! In between rain storms we spent hours on the deck appreciating the gorgeous setting. Thanks again!
Amazing , relaxing and beautiful.
Absolutely loved it. Everyone was so jealous of all our pics. Just perfect. Thanks so much for sharing. Will be back sometime soon.
Beautiful location and so relaxing!
We stayed up at this cottage over memorial weekend and even on a holiday weekend the area was so peaceful and quiet. The cottage is bigger than the photos make it look, but still a nice comfortable size. The owner is very kind and we enjoyed meeting him and getting to talk with him. We would go back in a heartbeat.
Cozy little cottage, nestled back in the woods right on lake Michigan. Mesmerizing views
My wife and I live in West Palm Beach Florida. We are expecting our first child in February. We decided to take our last vacation (with no kids) to the great state of Michigan. What an amazing place this cottage is located. The view of Lake Michigan right in the back yard, breathtaking to say the least. It was cold, leaves were changing colors, saw deer on the property one evening, we burned wood to keep the place warm. The total package. Thank you to the host Eric, he helped me get into the place after I misplaced the directions, had plenty of firewood stocked for us, and left us with useful tips on where to go eat, shop etc. It was an epic stay. Thank you
Loving home away from home
The house is wonderful and has everything you need for a short or long get away. Its very private and charming. Sunsets are incredible. We enjoyed long walks on the beach and coffee on the deck. Eric was amazing with communication and very friendly. We will definitely be back.
Location, location, location!
What a gorgeous spot for a cottage! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the privacy and the views for our anniversary. Mother Nature was most uncooperative with the temperature and the cloud cover and the rain, but we still enjoyed our time on the large deck and at the fire pit near the beach. There were SO many things to do in the area -- from the lower U.P. down to Petoskey so we never lack for entertainment. We used the master bedroom only which was quite comfortable but the loft and downstairs bedroom would have accommodated four more guests easily. The kitchen was reasonably appointed with everything we needed -- even for our extended stay. The gas grill came in handy for us one evening as well. The wood-burning stove was a must for us as temps dropped into the 40s at night but the kindling and fuel supply was readily available. Mr. Russell (the owner) was most accommodating with our on-the-fly questions regarding cottage operations. We would love to return in warmer months with family and friends!
Our A-Frame is located 18 miles north of Harbor Springs and 3 miles north of Good Hart off of M-119. The long driveway to the house is just south of Island View rd.
