About Tom Hess
I grew up in Michigan and went to college at Michigan Technological University. I currently work for a pharmaceutical company in Princeton, New Jersey
Tom Hess purchased this Cottage in 1963
Why Tom Hess chose Harbor Springs
My parents built this property in the 60's. I have been coming up to Northern Michigan for over 50 years. Even though I now live in the Philadelphia area, I continue to come back every year to enjoy the wildlife, views and stunning sunsets on Lake Michigan
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is located in a private association just off M=119 (the Tunnel of Trees). This allows a very peaceful and quiet environment. You can walk and enjoy the beach without crowds. The fire pit on the beach allows you to view the unbelievable star display. The cottage has enough bedrooms and bathrooms to sleep multiple families. You are 1 mile away from the quaint store and shops in Good Hart. You are in close proximity to Mackinaw Island, Harbor Springs, Petoskey, and the Star Park in Mackinaw City.

Terrific Cabin on the Lake
Absolutely calming location hearing the water lapping against the shore and awesome sunsets while relaxing on the deck. All the basics needed were there or available at the nearby general store. Everyone had a great time in the family and loved the location! No AC but the evenings were cool and had fans available. Entry drive into the subdivision was narrow but no issues. Thanks!
Gorgeous setting, nicely laid out floorplan, beautiful Lake Michigan views.
Awesome place to “unplug”!
Perfect cottage to unwind and unplug from the stresses of a busy life. Cottage and location are beautiful and tranquil. Deer were the only visitors. The sunset views from both the shore and from the cottage were epic. Love the local flair of Good Hart General Store. Will definitely be going back! Absolutely in love with this property!
Very well kept, many helpful resources.
We had an amazing stay on a beautiful piece of property! We couldn’t have asked for a better stay- the beach fire pit was especially nice. It was so easy to get down to the beach as well. We felt very secluded.
Beautiful home in the most scenic area of the state
Lake Michigan Serenity
My family and I stayed at the cottage over Labor Day weekend. The pictures are very true to what you'll find there and the reality is even better than the pictures. The setting is perfect! You'll find woods with lots of privacy, grassy dunes with some trees and sandy beach to play on. The fire pit on the beach is The Best.
The deck has a beautiful view and we enjoyed watching a large freighter and some yachts go by. We could hear the waves lapping the shore from our bedroom windows at night and that along with the gentle rustling of the leaves was the perfect way to fall asleep. If you need restoration and refreshing this is the place to do it.
The area (Good Hart) and Tunnel of Trees is really beautiful. The lemon bars and brownies from the General Store were a big hit with my family. We also sampled the Crepe Truck with delicious results. It's a peaceful and beautiful location all around.
I enjoyed not having internet at the cottage and I believe it was a bonus for my adult sons to "unplug" for the weekend.
There is a lot of storage at the cottage with large closets everywhere. If you have a lot of gear this will be great for you. As everything can be hidden away to keep the rooms looking neat.
I'm greatly looking forward to returning to the cottage. Thank you Mr. Hess for sharing your beautiful property.
