Beautiful four-season home on Lake Michigan in Good Hart, 15 miles north of Harbor Springs and 27 miles from Petoskey. We have a modern 1465 sq.ft. home, with many recent updates. There are sunset views with a hot tub just outside your door. Watch the freighters pass Beaver Island as you relax on the deck reading a good book.
We have three bedrooms. The master bedroom faces the lake and adjoins the deck with a private bath and queen-sized bed. This bedroom door opens directly onto the common living space. The second bedroom also faces the lake with a queen-sized bed and also adjoins the deck; it shares a full bath with the third bedroom containing one full-sized and one twin bed. There is a laundry room on this side of the house, also. Those two bedrooms as well as the laundry room and bath are up three steps from the common living spaces.
The living space has a leather sofa and love seat, two wing chairs, several side tables and lamps, and a narrow table housing a flat screen t.v. A 14' tall wall of windows faces the lake, and makes for an everchanging landscape of light as the sun plays on the water. The ceiings are vaulted and the focal point of the room is a stone fireplace with a barn beam mantle.
Our kitchen was recently updated with appliances. The dining room is comfortable with a table for up to eight, with enough room for a fun family gathering! There is a bar counter and two stools to pull up to the kitchen counter. We have oak floors in the open parts of the home, and wall to wall carpeting in the bedrooms.
Our lake access is down a rock and sand path to a gathering area with six beach chairs. We have float toys in the basement along with a beach umbrella for shade, that are available for your use. The home is on a quiet drive along the lake, a nice place for a morning stroll. If you collect stones or rocks, there's a great supply of them on the beach. We have two single person kayaks that are also fun to paddle around on. We enjoy playing with fins and masks, watching the gobies and other fish, or discovering large boulders out under the water.
The location is quiet and peaceful. It's wonderful to unwind and read a book on the deck, watch the deer walk by on the road, or the birds diving in the water on the lake. Lake Michigan sunsets are amazing and it seems we have hundreds of pictures in our archives as proof! Come spend a week and unwind at the lake. You know what they say: a week at the lake is worth a month in town!
Also-if you inquire and are asked to wire money to a bank out of the country-beware. Please consider phoning me at the number listed below. This VRBO site was hacked and the person who inquired, was asked to wire money to London. We live and work in Michigan. Thanks!
