Property description

In 4 1/4 hours from Detroit you can enjoy this tranquil beach home on top of a dune overlooking Lake Michigan, watching the sea gulls, the swans, the gold finches and hummingbirds, also deer and even bald eagles and in the evening - breathtaking sunsets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: In 1967 we moved to the USA from Germany and in 1994 we made a dream come true and purchased our beach home on Lake Michigan. We enjoy spending time there and appreciate nature with woods, water, wildlife and tranquility, sitting on one of multiple decks.

Why the Owner Chose Harbor Springs, MI, USA:
The setting is unique, with 140' on Lake Michigan, the house sits on a dune, overlooking the beach and the water.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The serenity with beautiful surroundings make it possible to relax and enjoy nature and fresh air in the privacy of this setting.
