Close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home nestled in the woods. Very clean with towels and all the pantry items you could ever need. Had a great time skiing at Boyne Highland just a short 4-5 min. drive then going out to dinner in Harbor springs and seeing a movie at there very cute theater just a 2-3 min. drive. Well definitely be back

Thanks

Jim

Peaceful solitude

  • 5 of 5

Our family booked this cabin again as we had such a wonderful experience the first time. Coming back, it was just as wonderful. It is so quiet! Lovely atmosphere to just unwind from our hectic lives at home. This cabin is close to downtown. BC Pizza was great! And close by as well,...we will be back again!

Perfect Winter Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. It's even more beautiful than the pictures with updated countertops and appliances in the kitchen. It was perfect for our family of four with a nice bedroom for grandma! It would also have been quite comfortable with another family staying because we didn't even use three of the sleeping spots! It was a quick 7-minute drive to Boyne Highlands where we spent our days skiing. We spent our evenings playing games in front of the fireplace and took full advantage of the well-equipped kitchen to make our meals and save money. It was also very close to Petoskey where we went to the Petoskey Snow Park for sledding and skating. After the kids went to bed each night, I sat in the living room and read under a cozy quilt. It was dreamy. The beds were VERY comfortable and the bathrooms were clean and beautiful. We didn't want to leave!! I am desperately sad that we didn't grab this place for a couple more weekends this winter when we had a chance! We'll definitely be back in 2018-2019!!

Ski weekend

  • 4 of 5

The home was perfect for my two sons and I. Very close to Boyne Highlands. Never had any problems. We received about 16" of snow while there and the driveway was plowed timely.

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cabin was perfect for our family of 5. After a full day of skiing it was nice to come back to a fire in the buck stove and some family time. The cabin was fully stocked with everything that we could possible need. Our family will definitely stay here again!!!

About Niki Hull

I'm an active duty Air Force pilot from Michigan, husband of a wonderful lady, and father of two smart boys who hopes to one day retire to our house in Harbor Springs. We enjoy our home away from 'home' when leave allows, and my family has a place of stability during the lengthy deployments.

Why Niki Hull chose Harbor Springs

Harbor Springs is a wonderful community in the truest sense of the word. The people are warm, genuine, and welcoming. There may not be a better place on earth to enjoy four distinct, varied, and beautiful seasons. The long, sunny summer days and natural air conditioning of Little Traverse Bay. The uncrowded, undeveloped sandy beaches. The smell of fudge. Fall colors that would leave a New England leaf-peeper breathless, and miles of empty roads and paths by which to enjoy them. Three months of real winter, complete with downtown sleigh rides, a great town sledding hill, a municipal ice rink, and the best skiing in the midwest. Watching the world wake in spring. Marvelling at the wildflower colors on display while out for a morning walk in one of Harbor's nature preserves, then passing through clouds of lilac on the walk back through town. Mackinac Island. The Little Traverse Wheelway bike path. Wilderness, Petoskey, and Burt Lake State Parks. Fishing the Bear River or Walloon Lake. Sailing Little Traverse Bay. Hiking the North Country Trail. Biking the Tunnel of Trees. Headlands dark sky park. Golfing some of the finest courses in the nation. The opportunities to enjoy the unspoiled outdoors are practically endless. This is the place I wish I'd spent my childhood, and I'm hoping to give that experience to my two young boys.

What makes this house unique

You won't find another property that combines the solitude and privacy of the North woods while offering such convenience of proximity to town and recreational opportunities. We love the feel of the wood stove in the winter. The house has such a warm feel, and lounging with a book under the skylight in the loft is so relaxing. I love to have my morning coffee on the upper balcony, listening to the songbirds and looking for wildlife in the woods. We particularly like that we can park the car and access nearly all of our favorite activities by bicycle.
