About Teresa Toland
The Goose Cottage is jointly owned by two couples who have enjoyed Lake Michigan for many years. We have boated in the Harbor Springs and Petoskey area and fell in love at first site. For many years we have explored the area and gotten to know the friendliness of the locals as well as the beauty of the northern Michigan area. Having our beautiful home on the magnificent Lake Michigan shoreline is a dream come true!
Teresa Toland purchased this House in 2013
Why Teresa Toland chose Harbor Springs
The property was of the size to accommodate our families. We loved the views of Lake Michigan, the sounds of the waves washing against the shore as we relax on the decks of the property. The beach is some of the most beautiful sand to be found in this area. We love the beauty of Harbor Springs all year round.
What makes this House unique
Northern Michigan allows for activities throughout all the seasons. Boating, fishing, hiking, golf, skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, just to name a few. It attracts visitors from all over the US. Harbor Springs and Petoskey are nearby for shopping and dining.

Pre 4th family vacay
Beautiful property, great location, nice and roomy, tons of amenities and the owner is a breeze to work with 😊
Comfortable house in a beautiful location
We've been vacationing in Michigan for decades and this is the nicest place we've ever stayed. The house is clean (not cluttered), it has comfortable furniture, and stunning views of Lake Michigan...maybe some of the best on the Tunnel of Trees! The layout of the house was perfect for our three families. There is plenty of room to both spread out and come together in either of the two large living areas. The things that we experienced that were less than perfect were outside of the control of the owner such as the wifi being down in the area for the entire week and an untimely plague of black flies that kept us inside more than we liked...Pure Michigan, indeed! :)
My one piece of constructive feedback is to update the septic system rather than threaten to charge $1,500 if it backs up. I know septic systems require some TLC, but this one seems a bit more temperamental than most, to the point that even the next door neighbors warned about the past problems with the property. It's a pretty steep fine to have hanging over renter's heads for the week especially when the impression is that backups are not uncommon at this house. Thankfully nothing went wrong on our watch...even with several teenage girls!
Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone.
Perfect Little Getaway Gem
Where do I start? The views, location, and property were absolutely gorgeous! Something about this property caught our eyes among the many properties we viewed. The private beach was a major plus. Lake Michigan was absolutely beautiful and the sunsets were breathtaking. My friends and family wanted a mini trip to explore the beauty of Michigan as well as relax and unwind. We were able to do just that and more. Although Michigan weather wasn’t the best during our stay it was still a beautiful and memorable trip. The property owner was quick to respond and very helpful. Definitely a must stay, you won’t regret! Our only regret was that we didn’t stay longer. Truly one of a kind!
Lake Michigan splendor!
Beautiful location and very comfortable accommodations for the 13 of us. I could not have found a better location. It has everything you could want. The grandchildren said “I don’t want to leave; I would like to live here”.
Our group enjoyed a delightful stay at Goose Cottage! The house had many amenities and was perfectly set up for our stay. We loved walking on the empty beach, sipping a warm beverage on the party deck, and relaxing in the living room gathering space. Only wish we could have stayed longer!
Great property for a bigger group
Loved spending time at the goose cottage between days skiing at Nubs and Boyne Highlands. The family room and basement are both plenty large to hang out with all 12 of us, and every couple had their own bed at the end of the night. The view of the sunset over the lake was exceptional, even on cloudy nights!
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Our sunsets are amazing! The downstairs family room is quite large with a game table so that everyone can do their own thing.
Just 8 minutes for downtown Harbor Springs.
