Contemporary Lake Michigan Beachfront Home. Decks for viewing breathtaking sunsets, watch eagles fly above, hummingbirds hover near by, loons flying overhead,, Waugochance to Beaver Chain of Islands, three twinkling lighthouses, freighters in the distance. Walk the sandy beach for miles, bird watch, hike dunes and forest just across the (dead end) road or in Wilderness State Park-a five minute beach walk north. Walk out your door for a sunrise jog or yoga on the beach. Cycle back roads and nationally historic 'Tunnel of Trees' scenic road to Harbor Springs. Sleep-in your bed or hammock (on beach-side screened porch)-to soothing sound of waves lapping on the shore. Take a ferry to car free, Mackinaw Island or bridge to the Upper Peninsula, play golf, fish on a close-by inland lake, dine out-all15 minutes away. Sail, kayak, swim in summer, enjoy Spring trillium in bloom, Fall foliage in fall. Take an art/craft class at nearby Studio/Art Gallery
Other Activities: Take a break from building sand castles and take a kayak out (two available) or cross the road and hike in to more dunes, forests, paths. Bike in to the village and enjoy authentic Polish food and/or live music at the Legs Inn. Drive over to Douglas Lake (Pellston) for a fine dinner on the Lake.
Take a ferry from Mackinaw City over to Mackinaw Island, get some fudge, rent a bike and head to the other end of the island and escape the summer island crowds or take a horse and buggy ride (no cars allowed on Island). And, most wonderful of all, sip wine on the deck and watch the beautiful sunsets over the lake.
About the owner: The house was designed and built (literally) by my late husband who taught structural engineering at the University of Michigan. The space is a joy and a delight to be in, comfortable and inviting.
Why the Owner Chose Harbor Springs, MI, USA:
For several summers my family rented a house down the beach. We fell in love with the area as a perfect get away for parents, grandparents, kids and dogs. We were lucky to find this piece of land/sand with no rocks-on beach or in water-just sand. The house was completed about 11 years ago.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
As I appreciate it when my dog is welcome on my travels, the house welcomes (well behaved) dogs, has a doggy door and a small fenced in area off front porch. The house is maintained in excellent condition-smoke free and shoe free.
