About Laura Kirchner
We lived in Chicago and Vieques, PR before landing in Ann Arbor, MI. Having grown up in Harbor Springs, we always wanted to have a summer home in the area. We've always loved the northwest coast of Michigan, the tunnel of trees, the sunsets, and the water. The house is a dream and we always feel so fortunate and peaceful every time we are there. We are excited to share it with you.
Laura Kirchner purchased this House in 2008
Why Laura Kirchner chose Harbor Springs
We fell in love with the house the moment we set foot on the deck. The views are breathtaking and the architecture of the house takes advantage of the site perfectly. The entire water side of the house is glass and every room has glass doors that open onto the porch. It is an open and livable space, yet still manages to be cozy and comfortable. We just love it.
What makes this House unique
It is a special piece of property because it sits on a bluff very close to the water. The house has both amazing views from being perched above the beach, yet the water is still within yards of the house. The beach is pristine and beautiful. Set on a small cove, the waves break farther out and the water closer to shore is shallow and typically calm providing a great place for swimming and playing.

Wouldn’t change a thing!
A wonderful experience at a beautiful cottage. We are regular renters in the area, and the bedding was by far the most comfortable we’ve ever experienced.
Amazing views and beach!
Loved every minute we spent here. The views and beach are picture perfect! The house has everything you need to enjoy your stay and relax.
Relaxed at the Beach
One of the nicest places we have stayed. Minimal stairs to the private, beautiful sand, beach. Views were amazing. Interior living space very nice and met all of our needs. Would highly recommend.
Stunning views, relaxing home, awesome beach
So many good things about this home. First, the beach is very private, and the water is shallow quite a ways out. The views and sunsets are absolutely stunning from both the home and the beach. The house has everything you need, and the full length of the home has floor-to-ceiling windows for your viewing pleasure. Big deck and a grill too. We hope to come back again soon.
This is a beautiful house in a great location! We had only one sunset, but it was a spectacular one! We will treasure our time forever!
perfect long weekend
We were up for family wedding in Cross Village. The house is simple, serene and has everything we needed. Nice mental break from all the huzza of extended family and wedding chaos.
Being on the beach and listening to waves at night promotes a quality of sleep that is precious.
We really enjoyed being out of the main stream. Weather unusually hot for September so swimming was an unanticipated treat as well.
Good Hart is a serene and peaceful place. Our house is just off the 'Tunnel of Trees' and surrounded by nature, the water is spectacular, the view are amazing, the beach is beautiful and always empty (like a private beach!). There are hiking trails, miles of sandy beach (great for long walks!), huge sand dunes. A real get away. The sunsets are truly world-class and at night the sky is full of stars. All you have to do is relax and enjoy!
