About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay2 - 7 nights
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
The Tree House is secluded in its own forest, +/- 120' from the water's edge with 168' of private beach with panoramic views of Petoskey, Charlevoix, Beaver Island and on a really clear day you can see the Fox Islands. We are one house north of 5 mile creek so there is not
much foot traffic on the beach coming from the south; this makes the beach extra private. Besides beautiful sunsets, walks on the beach and beach fires there is a plethora of activities near by. Biking on the famous Tunnel of Trees, kayaking, 5 minutes to restaurants, 11 miles to Boyne Highlands and Nub's Nob, 19 miles to Bay Harbor, 38.9 miles to Mackinaw City and Docks to Mackinaw Island. We hope you enjoy your stay! Beware, it is a tough place to leave.

Terrific family vacation. Hope to return to the Tree House again next year.
Beautiful location. Home is well equipped, very clean and beautifully furnished. Every night we enjoyed the lake view from the decks. Loved the private beach and fire ring. Harbor Springs is a quaint, relaxing, welcoming town. Sleeping to the lapping waves is the best. Day trips to the Pond Hill Farm and Thorn Swift Nature Preserve.
Beautiful and well appointed
The tree house is certainly an experience not to be missed. From the magnificent views to the well appointed comfortable home, our stay could not have been better. We spent time at Down town harbor springs as well as Petoskey..
Both felt like Norman Rockwell experiences.
The locals were kind and helpful. There are specialty stores and
Health food stores with a wonderful variety of food choices. Great ski and snowboard board options for all levels.
Loved Pond Hill farm and spent the day there. The kids went sledding and fed the animals. We all went for some beautiful walks on the groomed trails and topped it off with delicious food and drink. A perfect day.
We can't wait to come back. An amazing get away any season!
Loved the Tree House!!!!!
We had a great time at this retreat nestled in the woods. It was very private and secluded. The views of Lake Michigan were awesome and could be seen from inside the house and the deck. The sandy beach was just a few steps away. We enjoyed several camp fires under the stars. The house had everything we needed. We enjoyed the Nature Preserve which was just a few minutes away and also downtown Harbor Springs which is a beautiful town. We can't wait until next year.
I was compelled to write this review and give the most excellent rating possible! I have rented from VRBO for years and I must say I have never stayed in a better appointed rental. You get exactly what the pictures show and more. Careful detail to your comfort! Such a beautiful setting, peaceful and calm, yet close enough to the action of Harbor Springs and Petoskey to get your fill of shopping and dining. The weather was excellent! Sweatshirts for morning coffee, bathing suits in the afternoon and bonfires on the beach at night. Also, it doesn't get dark until 11 p.m. so you feel like you are really getting your day's worth. Highly, highly recommend this rental (Just hope you don't get the week I want next year!!)
Thank you Donna!!!!
Beautiful Lake Front Home
My husband, sisters and brother decided to do a short get away in the fall and we are so happy we found this beautiful lake front home in Harbor Springs. The home is wonderfully decorated with high end furnishings and linens. The view from the dining room, living room and master bedroom are remarkable. The house is very private, secluded and very clean. I would love to return in the summer so that we can enjoy the private beach.
beautiful cottage, better than the pictures
We had a wonderful week on Lake Michigan. The house is very comfortable and everything was better than expected from the pictures. All the kitchen appliances are professional grade with crate and barrel tableware and drinkware. Beds were very comfortable and bathrooms were very nice. Everything was immaculate when we arrived. The ping pong room is great for transitioning from the beach to inside and it was nice to have use of the garage. It is a little bit steep down to the beach from the bottom of the stairs, but everyone made it down ok (ages 2-66), some with the help of a walking stick (of which there are plenty around). It was nice that there were beach towels available and some beach toys. The lake was smooth enough for part of the trip to take our canoe and my 5 year old's kayak out. The beach was a little rocky near the water but had great sand as well for my boys to play in and near the fire pit (which was well suited for a nice beach fire and s'mores). It was an awesome week. Thanks for allowing us to use your beautiful home
