About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 - 7)
Sip beverages and enjoy alfresco dining on the covered porch or catch the last of the sunset on the patio with a cool drink while grilling dinner on the gas grill. Or take the night off and go out for a great meal at one of the local restaurants.
Nap in the backyard in a shaded garden hammock or relax with a good book. Open living space describes the kitchen, dining and living space on upper level. Lower level provides an additional living space with TV, desk, and small dining table. Bar refrigerator and coffee maker are also available for sleepy guests in lower level master suite.
Televisions (3), DVD, VHS, stereo unit with CD and IPod player are included. Electric fireplace on both levels can warm up a chilly evening for skiers to relax and lounge with hot chocolate and a good movie and leave you rejuvenated for another day on the slopes. Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands are less than 10 minutes away and Boyne Mountain is a 25 minute ride away in Boyne Falls.
In the warm months, go to the beach, get in a boat, take a walk along the Bluff with beautiful views of the Bay or along the water past beaches and marinas. Ride a bike, play golf or tennis, sightsee or shop 'til you drop in the unique stores you will find in Harbor Springs and Petoskey (across the Bay). Take the ferry (30 minutes away) to Mackinac Island for the day and see the Fort and Arch Rock, among other sights. Rent a horse or take a carriage ride while on the Island.
This house is a short walk to town. Skiing slopes (2) are within 10 minutes of the house. You can reach northern Mi by flights to Pellston Airport (closest airport and 25 min. away), or Traverse City - 1.5 hrs. away, or Lansing Mi Airport - 3.75 hrs away. Flights to Detroit are cheaper but drive will take longer.
This home is cozy and comfy and lends itself to gatherings of all sorts. A great getaway for families, or couples/friends, a respite for one or a romantic retreat for two. There's always plenty to do 'up north' and the opportunity to do nothing if the mood strikes.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: I grew up spending all my summers in this area since I was 9 yrs. old. I brought my children here for their summers and I hope someday they will do the same when they have children. I love the area in any and all seasons as there is something to be had for everyone regardless of talents, hobbies or interests.
Why the Owner Chose Harbor Springs, MI, USA:
I chose this area because of my fond memories but also because of its' universal appeal to others, and the opportunity for year round activities. Skiing, boating, golfing and tennis are all nearby and the slopes are less than 10 minutes away.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love enjoying the company of friends for beverages and a grilled dinner on the patio. I appreciate napping in the shaded garden hammock in the backyard or just relaxing in an adirondack chair late in the day. Gathering on the porch to recounts day's activities is a ritual. Relaxing in front of the fireplace after a day on the nearby slopes of Nubs Nob or Boyne Highlands is warm and restful. Catching a movie in the comfort of this home seems to work for the weary skier. Heading downtown to watch the sailboat races or the yachts arriving on the waterfront or sit by the Bay is a pleasure of mine. Walking the boardwalk down to the beach and sitting and swimming in the afternoon is the best. Rainy days do not deter me - with book in hand I head to the covered porch and relax. Sometimes the games will emerge when others also congregate on the spacious porch. I enjoy walking or riding my bike along the Bluff looking at the spectacular views of the Bay and boating on the Bay is even better. Jumping into the clear clean waters of Lake Michigan is a joy. I always find myself rested and renewed as I head home from this nest up north.
