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.

We loved it! The setting was spectacular. The house was perfect for all 8 of us. I actually liked that we couldn’t get cell service as it made us play board games together and just have a relaxing weekend.
Wonderful relaxing time.
The house we stayed at was everything and more. My 91 year old mother had easy access to the house and the deck so she was able to enjoy the beautiful view of the lake with the rest of us. The house was very clean and plenty of room for all 8 of us. Thank you for a wonderful relaxing vacation.
Beautiful view and away from the crowds. The only negative things were ants in kitchen, very musty and damp the first day. The beds were not very comfortable. We remedied the ants with baggies and plastic containers. Aired out the musty smell by opening windows, fans and candles. The walk to the beach was not bad, very beautiful and secluded. The wild life was amazing. We had 8 people and never felt crowded. Bring paper towels, toliet paper, baggies and coffee for the first day and next morning. Store is a little ways. We had a wonderful time and would recommend this as a nice retreat.
We take these comments very seriously. Dehumidifiers will be purchased for next years rental season and we will be changing to a new exterminator company.
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!
