About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This beautiful cottage, on M-119 the famous 'Tunnel of Trees,' has been totally remodeled with a loft bedroom added (Perfect for the kids). The decor is truly Northern Michigan with authentic log hand carved beds(one queen and two double). All Ethan Allen Furniture or antique. White wicker porch furniture. Across the street take the gently sloping trail down to our private 130 ft. pure sandy beach. Once you step on the beach you will wonder if you are in the Caribbean. Wonderful white sand. Beach chairs and a cooler are available to take down to the beach. Enjoy an afternoon of relaxing in the hammock or on our 10 by 20 screened porch while reading that book you've been meaning to. All weather curtains can be rolled up or down. Make sure to bring lots of marshmellows to roast by the outdoor firepit while sitting in the adirondack chairs, watching the sun set, and enjoying a glass of northern wine. Ahhh pure bliss!!!

Our complete (all newly remodeled cabinetry and appliances) and cute galley kitchen will keep your clean up a snap so you can spend your time visiting such places as Mackinaw Island, which is only a 45 minutes drive away to visit for the day, or shopping and fine dining in Harbor Springs (ten minutes) and Petoskey with a new casino and movie complex (20 minutes) which are close by. The famous Good Hart General Store is approx. 4 miles away with a great deli and bakery. And don't forget the many wonderful nearby golf courses.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Widing's Way was bought and remodeled by Roger and Karen Widing, who own Widing Custom Homes in Traverse City. This 1940's cabin was a remodel project for the Widing's and their 2 girls in 2003. We enjoyed bringing the cottage up to date and decorating it in pure northern style.

Why the Owner Chose Harbor Springs, MI, USA:
For years we have always enjoyed the Norman Rockwell beauty of Harbor Springs, the shopping,the beaches,and the drive along the tunnel of trees. We have many memories of wonderful times at our cottage, Widing's Way, and we hope you will also. One of the most beautiful places to see the fall colors in Sept. and October.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Some of our most memorable times are sitting around the campfire, roasting marshmallows, and watching the sun sets. We also enjoy reading books on the porch, and most of all enjoying the wonderful beach.
