Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I grew up on Anchor Bay. The water feels like home to me. Harsens Island was a trip we could make that was not that far, but you felt like you were in another state.

Why the Owner Chose Harsens Island, MI, USA:
The 9 neighbors we have are family. They watch out for you, and if you need anything its yours. The Old Club it is a very unique boat club is right down the street.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is nothing better than sitting on the porch under the huge willow tree and listening to the sounds of the island.
