About Rip Hayes

This is a second home for us in Harbor Springs that we purchased for our children's future families. We would rather share the home with other familes than leave it empty.

Rip Hayes purchased this house in 2010

Why Rip Hayes chose Northwest

We have been in the ski business in Harbor Springs for over 30 years.

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefit of our home is the location and the accommodations for a large family. Walk or Bike to everything Harbor Springs has to offer.

Our 3 family's stayed at this beautiful home the summer of 2014 and we still talk about what a great vacation it was. The location was great. Amenities were top shelf. Can't go wrong with this beauty.

We rented this house for a family get-together for our 50th wedding anniversary. I can't tell you how wonderful this house is--everything in it is great. We were 12 people, ranging in age from 2 to 73 and everyone had their own "space." The owners were great--taking us out on their boat for a cruise on the bay and the lake. The location is perfect for town and beach and the bikes were constantly being used. We would highly recommend this home!!

A Magical Place up North

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time during our week long stay on 2nd Street. The description of the home definitely didn't do it the justice it deserved. Every aspect of this house was 100% more impressive than the pictures on the site. We could definitely could tell the owners goal was attention to detail. The home was huge! It was definitely more space than we ever could have used. The owners made sure we were comfortable our entire stay and responded to our every request quickly and within the day. My 83 year old Grandmother who is extremely anal about clean homes, commented frequently about how clean the home was. The beds were super comfy, the kitchen was amazing and rivaled any modern kitchens that I've seen, the rooms were beautifully decorated and the amenities were a welcome surprise (we had a BALL with the bikes). This is a home that we plan on visiting yearly from now until we buy our own up north :). There is no question that I would recommend this home to friends and relatives. I'm so glad we chose this home - it's the beginning of many, many cherished family memories. Thank you for sharing and we'll see you guys next year!

Our hearts are still singing with the wonderful accommodations and relaxing stay at 561 2nd Street!! This house far exceeded our expectations for our wants and needs. We were up for a family wedding with a large group. We had 3 families in this home, two of which had children under 3. There wasn't a dull moment for entertaining the children and/or adults. Although we were constantly on the go with various commitments for the wedding, the time spent at this STUNNING home was SPECTACULAR. The descriptives and the photos did NOT do this SPACIOUS home justice. It was beyond. The management met us with open arms and there wasn't a speck of dirt / dust to be found anywhere. The home was spotless, roomy and more than what we had bargained for to appeal to the masses. The home is nestled on a very quiet street and the noise factor was at a minimum. The empty lot next door gave us that much more privacy and we really felt snuggled in. The garage is loaded with bikes, beach toys, burley, grille, lovely beach chairs and anything else you can imagine. Not only did management greet us with a very friendly smile, she noticed with had a year old baby with us. After she left us, making sure we were content with the house, she ran home, unbeknownst to us and immediately came back with a baby gate for the stairs, leaving no stones unturned. I was in absolute awe of her attention to detail. This, my friends, is the 5 star of cottage rentals. Many kudos to our home owners. BEWARE: We may be back!!! Thank you so much for adding to a very special weekend with our "Hollywood" accommodations!! Ideally located.

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is fantastic! Incredibly clean, well organized and stocked with anything that you may need. The location is ideal - 3 block, easy walk to Harbor Springs. The home is as pictured in the review ... only nicer. Some of the property highlights - spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, bunk room with a loft (kids loved it), master up & master down, teenage twin beds in the basement, gourmet kitchen, large dining table with extra room around the kitchen island. We had a mini family reunion with 4 adults, 7 children and plenty of room. We fully enjoyed the use of the grill for dinner and 11 bicycles that were in the garage and available for our use. The teenage boys found a surprise basketball court located just behind some trees aligning the property. The home has a spacious deck out front with plenty of seating which was ideal for evening and early AM conversation around wine or coffee. There is a game room and TV room in the basement, a music system in the kitchen with a deck speaker and complementary WIFI. Ownership/management is extremely helpful and accommodating - we had a request to stay one extra night, as I made an error in booking, and the owner went out of his way to help us, which was much appreciated. As a large family, we are frequent VRBO renters and this rental will go down as one of the best we have ever stayed in - we hope to have a chance to come back and highly recommend it.

Summer Family Vacation For All Ages

  • 5 of 5

Don't look any farther than this property if you want to experience a fun-filled, stress free family vacation.

The owners are friendly and helpful beyond what you would normally expect. All your needs will be taken care of and you will enjoy the experience of an evening cruise on their beautiful boat.Also, if you require a cleaning gal, she is magnificent and helped us acquire a baby gate and high chair for our little one.

The location is walking distance to the town, beach, restaurants and of course, coffee shops and ice cream stores. Twelve bikes are available for your use which just adds to the vacation fun. A baby wagon is also attached to one bike.

The home is very spacious with bedrooms and baths on all three floors so there is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The porches are great for reading and cocktails and the side yard fun for lawn games.The kitchen is large with high end appliances and a gas grill is available.

We have already booked for next year and on our recent return home are lamenting the fact that we had to leave beautiful Harbor Springs and this home.
