Enjoy a private summer holiday in Roaring Brook, Harbor Springs Michigan, one of Northern Michigan’s oldest lake-front resorts. For rent is our sweet vintage family cottage in the woods. A ten minute walk down the peaceful and scenic Roaring Brood boardwalk (or a two minute drive) leads to the private Roaring Brook Beach, the best beach in Harbor Springs, where you can enjoy swimming, sunning, and spectacular views of the bay. A paradise for children of all ages. Walk, bike, or drive into Harbor Springs for shops, restaurants, and a vibrant waterfront scene. If you love golf, tennis, fishing, hiking, swimming, boating, shopping, the arts, or just plain leisure, peace and quiet, this is an ideal spot. For all you foodies out there, Northern Michigan is heaven in the summer. Local food amenities include seasonal berry picking and numerous farm stands with gourmet prepared foods. Traverse City, with world class restaurants, fruit orchards and wineries, is a day trip.
We will accept rentals in 2016, but have not yet determined which dates will be available then.
Our cottage is cozy and comfortable. The eat-in kitchen with breakfast nook is well-equipped for cooking; a charming pantry leads to a dining room with French doors opening to the woods and grilling area. Relax with friends and family around the living room fire place, window seat, and cozy rattan furniture. Opening from the living room is a screened-in porch where you can relax in total privacy with a good book. The cottage has wireless internet service, ROKU and a video screen. A stay in the cottage includes a tennis membership; private association tennis courts are a quick stroll away. There is a children’s playground near the tennis courts.
Catch a glimpse of the bay through the trees from the upstairs master bedroom. A sleeping porch / office next to the master bedroom is a great place for a little one to sleep, for an afternoon nap, or a writer's den. Additional two upstairs bedrooms have double beds, two upstairs bathrooms. Downstairs bedroom has a half bath. (Ideal for nannies or teenagers.) Experience the beauty of Northern Michigan in our family home.
