About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

A completely new look and feel to this stunning and secluded Birchwood Farms Golf and Country Club home! Overlooking the second green of The Farms Golf Course, this four-bedroom, 3.5 bath home with two acres of professional landscaping borders the forest and includes all new furniture, linens, mattresses, towels, windows, and sliding screened glass doors. New furnace, double water heaters, air conditioner, thick insulation, main floor washer and dryer, and automatic door openers for the three-car garage. Year-round hot tub and BBQ.

The living room’s two-story Great Room hosts new floor-to-ceiling sliding door glass windows with wrap-around deck, table, chairs, and new protective awning to overlook the immaculately groomed golf course. There are new sofas with a flat screen TV over the fireplace and plenty of coffee table books and natural watercolor artwork.

Just off the living room is a dining area for eight with sliding door access to the outdoor deck, hot tub, tables, and chairs. The newly updated kitchen includes every dish, pot, and pan for any gourmet meal. The kitchen window overlooks the side deck, BBQ, and another set of table and deck chairs.

The main floor master en-suite has a new king size mattress with crisp white linens, duvet, and blankets. The master bath includes double sinks, a double jacuzzi tub, and walk-in shower. There is also a huge walk-in closet.

Upstairs there are two additional bedrooms and a “sun room." The first bedroom has two extra long twins and crisp white linens. The second bedroom has a king bed with new linens. All linens are professionally laundered.

Across the hall from the bedrooms is a completely new bathroom with double sinks and a shower/tub.

The lower level consists of a great gathering area with pool table, large TV, and comfortable seating. Additionally, there is a fourth bedroom with a third new king bed. Adjacent to the bedroom are both a full bath with a shower and a furnished exercise room with sky lighting.

Guests* of Birchwood have access to amenities including 27 holes of golf, new swimming pool, 10 clay tennis courts, bocce, pickle ball, two dining facilities, fitness center, and Pro Shops along with miles of groomed cross country skiing and snowshoeing trails right out the backyard.

Charming Harbor Springs could not be more quaint and endearing. Exceptional three-season golf is at the club or one of the area’s many championship courses. In winter, great downhill skiing at Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob is ten minutes away as are area groomed cross-country and snow-shoeing trails. Warmer weather brings days perfect for swimming at Lake Michigan beaches, state park visits, boating, kayaking, canoeing, trap, skeet, sporting clays, fishing, and hunting. An ideal retreat in any season. And all Pure Michigan.

*BIRCHWOOD GUESTS / ADDITIONAL FEES: $100 first week of stay; $50 each additional week of stay at same property. This is listed as a CLUB Fee on booking quotes. Maximum fee $500.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have spent two weeks in this lovely home. It's our seventh year vacationing in Harbor Springs, and we have stayed in this house five times. The updates are amazing. It is now so visitor friendly and beautiful. We enjoy our time at the beach, reading on the deck, sunning at the pool, playing cards at the table, golfing, and meeting the ever so friendly people in Harbor Springs. The landscaping around the house is so pretty.

Thank you for opening up your home to us. We truly value the family time we had together and have so many fabulous memories to take home with us.

With Appreciation from Akron, OH

..GREAT winter weekend january 19-thru-22 2018

  • 5 of 5

The house worked well for our four couples long weekend getaway! The kitchen was well supplied and the living room large enough for all of us to gather. The dining room table seated all of us and was great for meals, games, and cards. Each couple had a bedroom, two couples had their own bathroom, and two couples shared a bathroom. We appreciated the half bath near the living area, the hot tub on the patio, a warm cozy fireplace, and cross country skiing out the door. The three stall garage was very convenient on a wintry weekend.

Northern Michigan at its finest

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home in Harbor Springs was everything we hoped for for our family vacation in northern Michigan. Three generations lived comfortably in this spacious, beautifully decorated home. Each family had its own level of the house, there was plenty of privacy, and we enjoyed evenings on the huge deck overlooking the golf course, watching the deer and other wildlife.

This home is close to charming Petoskey as well as Macinaw City and the ferry to Mackinac Island.

Our younger family members enjoyed the two pools at the clubhouse, and we all went hiking several times at a nearby nature center on Lake Michigan.

Fresh cherries and blueberries were a treat, as well as shopping fresh produce at the local Harbor Springs farmers’ market.

Our family returned home after a relaxing week of vacation, already making plans to return to this lovely Birchwood home in the future. Many thanks for a memorable week!

Even nicer than the pictures portray, also there was a bonus room upstairs with two twin beds that wasn’t even advertised on the website. Very clean and well stocked. Will definitely be booking this again next year, very impressed

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here on our honeymoon June 2014. Loved this house. Although on a golf course, it was very private. Private hot tub and loved the pool table too. We will be back.
