I remember counting the mile markers from the backseat as we headed north on Interstate 75 with my Uncles Harry and Bert and cousin Pat. Traveling from the flatlands and cornfields of Ohio, over the state line and into the fir and birch trees that soon began dotting the Northern Michigan landscape. We drove over the Mackinac bridge and on into Canada to fish for trout and northern pike in what became the most remote place I'd ever been. That first time north, I recall the temperature contrast, even in August as the humidity in the south gave way to the dryer, more comfortable air to the north. I couldn't believe the climate difference a few hundred miles north by car could make and I knew then I'd be back someday. I came back in my early 20's and took a job on Mackinac Island. Working as a dock porter, my main responsibility was to "meet and greet" hotel guests at the ferry dock. As dock porters, we were the first point of contact with the guest and we'd often take their luggage by bicycle to the several hotels and bed and breakfasts on the island. In reflection, Dockporting was the most autonomous, joyful, and healthful job I ever had. I was paid to ride a Schwinn bicycle! On my days off, my Schwinn and I would take the ferry to the Mackinac City. From there, I'd pedal south on M119. Passing through Good Hart, I'd take a break and sit on the old wooden bench outside the general store, head back, leaning into the summer sun. Soon, I'd venture a few miles further south passing historic Legg's Inn before hitting that gradual grade downward through the "canopy of trees" into Harbor Springs. Harbor Springs was my destination then, and I'm so thrilled now to literally have a little corner of this charming village that I can call my own and I'm so happy now be able to share it with you :)
Dave purchased this Studio in 2014
Why Dave chose West Traverse
LOCATION, COMFORT, and CONVENIENCE. 103 West Main is in the heart of downtown Harbor Springs. You're at the corner of State and Main streets and everything that this great community has to offer is a minute from your doorstep. Leave your car keys on the kitchen countertop as restaurants like the Pier, The New York, and Guerney's sandwich shop are a block away. Boutique clothing shops and coffee houses are at the bottom of your steps. The marina, the beach, and the bluff are also, 1-2 blocks away. 103 has been contemporarily appointed with comfort and couples in mind. Two plush lounge chairs in the living area give you freedom to relax and forget about time. The space comes with a California King Size bed and will ensure a good nights sleep. LED and pendant lighting (dimmer controlled) will set the mood while window treatments can either let the sunshine in, or block it out. There is a 42'' flat-screen HDTV with cable and Wifi in the air if you opt to stay connected, but only if you wish :)
What makes this Studio unique
Outside your door to Main street you'll be in the center of town instantly. Awake to the fresh smells of the farmers' market in the Summertime and fall asleep to the glow of the Christmas tree display during the winter.

In the “❤️“ of it all!
Our stay was short, but enjoyable. The property was as represented ~ clean, spacious and in the “heart” of downtown Harbor Springs. The only amenity I wish the space had was a Keurig coffee machine. We went across the street and picked up coffee and a “sweet” but it would have been nice to have “Joe” more available. I would recommend these accommodations, and wouldn’t hesitate to stay again. Communication with Dave was awesome! Great stay.
Thank you for the honest feedback, it will certainly help me to provide future guests an even better experience. Are you talking about the Keurig "single serving" (with k-cups) coffee maker? That would be a nice upgrade to "Mr Coffee" that's there now and I've looked into it. If that's the device you're talking about, my only problem is there is no available storage for me to keep the k-cups without them flying off the shelf, if you know what I mean.
Thanks again Roberta, and take care. Dave.
In the middle of all that downtown Harbor Springs has to offer.
Hey Dave! Thanks for the review, I'm glad my spot was convenient for you!
Our 2nd Stay
My wife and I stayed in this loft for 10 days back in 2015 and loved it. We came back for an extended Mother's day weekend this year and loved it again. Great location. It is in the heart of Harbor Springs within walking distance to everything. Fun, fun, fun! Thanks Dave.
You got it Steve! Seems like we're on to something here...hehe :)
Thank you for the kind feedback, I'm glad the space worked out so well for you again.
Great wintery weekend
Very nice location. Convenient to everything we were looking for. Had a great time in the area and enjoyed local restaurants. Well appointed, comfortable, and perfect for two people.
I appreciate your feedback Cindy. Really glad my spot worked out for you both. Hope to see you again sometime. Dave
