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 Harbor Springs
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.

Great studio for 2
The apartment was very clean, well furnished and in a great location to explore Harbor Springs and surrounding area. The king bed was really comfortable. Short walk to nice restaurants and beach. Dave was very easy to work with. We really enjoyed our stay.
Great location, very nice property, and attentive owner!
Perfect location, it was just a few steps to restaurants, shopping and the beach.
I'm glad the space worked out for you Chris. Hope to see you back sometime in the future. Dave
Perfect place. Perfect town.
We absolutely loved staying here. The apartment was in the perfect location within walking distance of several restaurants and shops. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Can't wait to come back. :)
Thank you for the kind feedback Brooke. I look forward to having you back anytime. Dave
Suberb location! Very safe! Comfy quarters! No private parking☹️☹️ No laundry facilities ☹️☹️
Hi Lee. Thank you for the feedback. I’m glad you found my place to be comfortable. I understand your disappointment. If you were expecting private parking and laundry facilities at the location. I state in my description of the property that there is neither private dedicated parking nor laundry facilities. Most of my guests stay between 2-3 days and laundry is not typically a concern. They also find that the free parking available at the 2 municiple lots a block from the unit work for them just fine if parking on the street is too problematic. I’d love to be able to offer laundry capability, and I am considering sacrificing kitchen cupboard space for a stacked unit in the future. Again, thank you for your honest feedback, I know it will help future guests make a more informed decision when shopping for their needs. Take care. Dave
Convienient, cozy, and comfy!
First time I've used VRBO and the experience was amazing at this property. Very clean, great views, and apartment is perfectly setup for two! Definitely would like to book again for my next excursion to God's country that surrounds the heart of Harbor Springs.
I'm very happy to hear that my flat worked out for you both!
You are welcome back anytime! Dave
Fabulous Location and Owner
The location was fabulous. Walking distance to all restaurants and the beach. We attended farmers market on Wednesday out side of unit and Thursday night music in the streets. Bed was extremely comfortable. Quiet...Relaxed and slept great. Cooked lunch in unit. They had all the utensils we needed. Excellent value... The owner Dave is a class act! All directions on the unit were perfect. Can not say enough great things. Hoping to return soon.
Thanks for the kind feedback Mike. I'm glad you could enjoy the aromas of the farmers market right out your window and caught some good music as well. You're welcome back anytime there is availability. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Dave
