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, tables, and chairs. The newly updated kitchen includes every dish, pot, and pan for any gourmet meal. The kitchen window overlooks the side deck, hot tub, 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, ten 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.

About Resort Rental and Management

I live in the Detroit area. I try to get up north as often as I can in both the winter and the summer. Northern Michigan is one of the most beautiful areas in the world.

Resort Rental and Management purchased this house in 2007

Why Resort Rental and Management chose Harbor Springs

It is like God's country Up North in Michigan. I wanted to be able to travel to the north to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

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.

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.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our trip to Harbor Springs. This is our third time in this lovely house. Plenty of room. Comfy furniture and very clean. Kitchen had everything we needed. Plenty of linens and towels for all eight of us. Sitting on the deck was so relaxing. I would definitely stay here again. And the area has so much to offer for entertainment. Simply beautiful.
