About The Owner

We are 2 brothers and their families that grew up in Harbor and really love to come back to the area.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Harbor Springs

The house has been great for us and our 'shanty Irish' gatherings of 25 plus family members. The area of Harbor Springs has unlimited potential for vacations of all sorts.

What makes this house unique

The locale of this house is excellent. You do not even need a car to experience everything Harbor Springs has to offer. You can walk to 2 beaches, hit some tennis balls at the water front, dine at great restaurants, and have more fudge than a 6 year old can eat

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was an awesome spot for our family get together. We had our reunion here and packed the house with all ages... the porches are great for family dinners. Thanks we had a blast.

Great house for large gathering....

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location close to everything Harbor Springs has to offer. Downtown restaurants and stores are just a short walk down the street. Plenty of space to spread out in inside and great outdoor space in the back of the house. We will definitely be back!

Great house-Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast in HS and the house was perfect for a large group. Close to downtown and close to water where we chartered some fishing. Easy drive to Macinac Island. I even spotted an Auburn t-shirt and exchanged a War Eagle outside local coffee shop!

Great House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being able to eat outside as a group. Hopefully, the weather cooperates more next time. House was great. Maybe bigger TVs? (We understand though you want to be outside up there.)
