Everything was pure perfection. The house and grounds were even better than the pictures. Everything was immaculate and details were amazing. We were in Harbor Springs for my son's wedding and could not have imagined better accommodations and location. Incredible views of sunset on Lake Michigan. Owners were very thoughtful and accessible. Thank you for helping to make my son's wedding week a spectacular event!

Outstanding Vacation Home Rental

  • 5 of 5

Lakeview Loft turned out to be an outstanding experience for our family reunion. Every aspect of the property is exceptional! The drive from Harbor Springs along the beautiful Tunnel of Trees to the house sets the scene for your first view of the house. The glorious two-story polished knotty pine wooden structure, gleams from its setting back from the road. Beautiful landscaping prepares you for the gorgeous interior. We were wowed by the living room with its massive bolder inlaid fireplace and huge windows over-looking Lake Michigan. Every room is tastefully decorated and well appointed. The kitchen is a dream with up-dated appliances and well-stocked cupboards. Our children and grandkids (age 9 and 12) had the main house and my wife and I slept upstairs in the attached apartment. It worked out perfectly for us. The property is so well maintained (spotless!) that you know that the owners take great pride in this home. We met them soon after we arrived and they are delightful folk. We felt very welcomed and knew that they wanted us to really enjoy our stay. We certainly did and would definitely recommend Lakeview Loft as an outstanding vacation home rental.

Beautiful Northern Michigan Home with wonderful views of Lake Michigan/sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully maintained home; very clean.

Home is well designed and accommodates families well. Beach located nearby is user friendly and generally not crowded.

Sunsets viewed from the porch are magnificent.

Owners are very attentive to customers.

A very peaceful get-away location.

My extended family had the joy of staying in this house for one week and it exceeded all of our expectations! The owners were very helpful and have thought of everything to make your stay extremely relaxing. The house was the cleanest we have ever experienced, the kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/towels/spices, the firewood was ready for the fire pit and the patio furniture made sunset watching one of our favorite trip memories! The kids loved playing in the yard while we enjoyed the beautiful lake view. The loft over the garage was perfect for our family and did not disappoint, it was also well stocked and had lovely views as well. The exterior has been landscaped to perfection and leaves you wishing the owners would help you with your own house! The house even has a wonderful grill and picnic tables that made our family reunion dinner one of my favorites! We all highly recommend this house and will stay here again when we make it back to Michigan!

There is a great store in Good Hart about 3 miles down the road with homemade pot pies, fruit pies and sandwiches that we visited several times and loved! There are several public beaches just a few miles away that were lovely. This home has it all!

Thank you Carol and Tom for sharing your home with us, we had a wonderful family vacation!

amazing place and people. cannot wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during last summer. The place is amazing very comfortable and has everything. When accidentally door got locked on us (really - our fault) the owner came very quickly and opened it for us. the house has everything that you need. Been to others where other than the basics, we had to go to the grocery store and get even salt. There are spices, sugar, oil, nothing missing though they do not have to provide. Cannot wait to return

Peaceful and Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week, the first half by ourselves and the second half with extended family. This home is beautiful, extremely clean, and very comfortably furnished. Beds, towels, linens and kitchen items were all top notch. The outdoor space is just gorgeous with one of the best views of Lake Michigan and breathtaking sunsets from the front porch and massive windows. The woods behind the house are great for viewing deer (we saw them daily) and other wildlife especially from the covered porch with comfy seating, ceiling fans, and outdoor stereo speakers. There were two fire pits with plenty of fire wood provided and ready for the S'mores that the grandkids loved making. We found great beaches in Harbor Springs at Zorn Park and another in Good Hart called Middle Beach with great sand for the kids to play in. We were able to kayak, find great restaurants, and quaint shops in downtown Harbor Springs. The Legs Inn in Cross Village is a must for authentic Polish food. Pond Hill Farm is fun with a café, wine and beer tasting room, and petting zoo for children. Overall, this was a great place to relax, unwind and enjoy a peaceful setting with family! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved being here - sunsets & great bonfires in back yard. Kids played ball & horseshoes - showed the adults how to be kids again.

The owner Carol was delightful & so helpful.

So loved being in your beautiful home. Thank you for all of the special accommodations. The kids loved the downstairs TV!
