About the property

Great Family Vacation 4/3 with private beach/tennis courts/pools and more!

Welcome to our renovated 4 bedroom 3 bath condominium in wonderful Harbor Cove!

When you walk in on the main level, you'll feel right at home in this intimate yet spacious 2 story end unit (larger) condominium, nestled in the woods for privacy but located a mere 100 yards from Gorgeous, Little Traverse Bay!

New wood flooring in the main areas, kitchen, bathrooms, and upper level offer attractive visual compliments to the main floor which includes the spacious family room (comfortable seating for 10-12) with vaulted ceiling, exposed wood beams, stone hearth with natural wood burning fireplace and 55 inch flat panel TV with DVD and I-Pad/Phone/Pod wireless speakers for your entertainment, all encapsulated with welcoming decor throughout. 2 separate master bedrooms (each with 32 inch Flat Screen TV’s) with full renovated bathrooms are also located on the main floor. Master bedroom #2 has access to a super private deck, great for your morning coffee or some quiet time. Master bedroom #1 is beautifully equipped and has its own decorative fireplace.

The brand new kitchen (May 2014) offers stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a decorative backsplash. You'll enjoy cooking a family meal here after a great day at the beach or out seeing the beautiful sights of Northern Michigan with a fully stocked kitchen! The dining area with seating for 10 (2 additional table leafs available with chairs) is directly adjacent to the kitchen and opens up to the family room so you are never tucked away from family and friends. Also located on the main floor is the laundry room with large washer and dryer.

Make your way up the stairs and you will find 2 more good sized private bedrooms. Bedroom #3 has a KING sized bed (and 20 inch flat screen TV) and bedroom #4, or the bunk room, has matching twin and a twin/bunk (sleeps 3), as well as, a light and cheery full bath with double vanity and shower/tub combination. Two separate decks located at the back of the unit and accessible from the family room and one of the master bedroom via sliding doors make for pleasant mornings and evenings or when you just need some alone time. The entire home has wireless high speed internet access for your enjoyment.

Summertime is incredible along the shores of Little Traverse Bay. Our renters enjoy a private beach house and a 2 mile long private beach that is only accessible to Harbor Cove residents and guests. Other association amenities include an outdoor pool and bathhouse. For those rainy days, take a dip in the indoor pool or hot tub and enjoy the sauna or use the clubhouse for private gatherings!

Northern Michigan is a mecca of sandy beaches, world class golf courses and unmatched sunsets over Lake Michigan. Shop and eat at the fantastic shopping and restaurant districts in Harbor Springs (2 mi), Petoskey (7 mi), Mackinaw City (30 mi) and Charlevoix (30 mi). Browse through the unique shops and boutiques at your leisurely pace and explore neighborhoods graced with elegant Victorian homes.

For a day trip, visit Mackinaw City, where ferryboats depart for Michigan's most popular tourist attraction, Mackinac Island. It is just a half hour away. Take the ferry over to the island, where cars are forbidden, and experience a horse-drawn carriage tour. Rent a horse and explore the island yourself. Take a bicycle-built-for-two and circle the island. Visit the Grand Hotel where Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour starred in the movie 'Somewhere in Time' and walk the longest porch in the world.

Come and experience a vacation destination like no other. We've got a home that will welcome your family here and keep you coming back year after year.

About Tim and Melissa

My wife and I have vacationed in Harbor Springs for over 25 years. When we had children 17 years ago, we spent at least 1 week in the summer and 1 week during the ski season here with our family. We have created so many great memories of Harbor Springs, and the surrounding areas that when this unit became available In Harbor Cove, we jumped at the opportunity to own our own piece of the area. Harbor Cove is really one of the best places to be in Harbor Springs with its beautiful setting, proximity to a private beach house and beach (considered the best on the bay by most!) the amenities for friends and families, and the general location to everything that you would want in a vacation destination. We hope you and your family enjoy our home and the area as much as we do and that you create your own family memories.

Tim and Melissa purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tim and Melissa chose Harbor Springs

After searching the area and looking at homes and condominiums in Harbor Springs and Petoskey, we decided that the location, beach, amenities and family friendly atmosphere in Harbor Cove was the best place to be located to enjoy our vacation rain or shine and anytime of the year.

What makes this condo unique

secluded location in the Northern Michigan Pines, private beach house and 1 mile long private beach attached to another 2 miles of beach, hiking trails, indoor/outdoor pool, hot tub sauna, club house, playground, close to Harbor Springs and Petoskey, and easy access to Mackinac Island, Beaver Island and the U.P.

Great, cozy condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has been updated and is stocked with everything you need. Very well decorated, and very clean. Minor gripe is the top bunk bed has no railing and none of the kids would sleep there in fear of falling. Other than that, a highly recommended place to stay in Harbor Springs!

Owner's Response: Keith Thanks for letting us know about the top bunk! The railing was not put back in place when the bed was changed. We have alerted our cleaning service to make sure railing in back on top bunk! Glad you enjoyed your stay! Melissa

Quiet, cozy condo in the woods!

  • 4 of 5

A perfect setting for a college friends reunion. Plenty of space to share, laugh and relax. It was nice to be able to create meals and share dinners in a home-like setting. The closeness to the woods and trails gave us a peaceful place to walk and breathe in the clean, up-north air. The kitchen was well-equipped and easy to use.
