Jessica Woll purchased this house in 2009

Why Jessica Woll chose Harbor Springs

The home is beautiful, magical and peaceful. It is a perfect place for a family get away. The problem is, you won't want to leave!

What makes this house unique

The master bedroom has ceiling to floor windows on 3 sides and a fire place. The room is perched over the bluff and feels like it floats over the water. Sip your coffee, while watching eagles soar by. Each of the 5 bedrooms has it's own bath. The upstairs bunk house features 3 'heavenly' queen size beds. The home comfortably sleeps 12 people. The home has 2 separate wings connected by a glass tunnel.

Beautiful home, stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing week in this stunning home. We were a family group of eleven from Southwest Michigan and Wisconsin. Sunsets, bonfires, kayaking, and long walks on the beach. Much time was spent on the expansive deck overlooking Lake Michigan; reading, talking, laughing and napping. Jigsaw puzzles and games on rainy days with outings to Mackinaw Island, Harbor Springs, Petosky for Minature Golf and Boyne Mountain for zip lining. At the end of the day we gathered and cooked dinner together, eating on the outside dining table. We thought we would eat out more, but saw no point in leaving such a beautiful spot, plus we all love to cook. Everyone was informative and helpful, from the owner to manager. Thanks for sharing your special retreat with us, we hope to return next year!

Five-Star Luxury Home on Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed on this luxurious property on two occasions and highly recommend it without reservation. It is right on Lake Michigan, within walking distance of the Tunnel of Trees, and minutes away from Harbor Springs and my favorite winery, Pond Hill Farms. The view from the kitchen, master bedroom and outside deck is simply gorgeous. It has a glass tunnel--yes, glass!--connecting two parts of the home, and a spacious upstairs loft with three full beds. There are two bed/baths on the second level, as well as the beautiful master. All beds are super comfy! The home has modern, clean and contemporary styling that makes you feel as if you stepped into an Architectural Digest spread. It even has a modern hot tub (with color-changing night lights!) just steps from the beach to enjoy the magnificent sunset. I enjoyed walking to Three Pines Studio and Gallery, where I experienced dying an indigo scarf. (The owners of the gallery are warm and welcoming!) Likewise, the owners of this home will go above and beyond to ensure that you have a fabulous and memorable stay. As this property is only available on limited occasions throughout the year, don't hesitate to book your stay. You won't regret it and will have lifetime memories.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage nicely accommodated our family of 12 along with 2 babies. There were plenty of bedrooms and enough living space for all. Since the weather was perfect we were able to enjoy the beach and the kayaks that were provided. Although there were 109 steps to the beach the younger members handled it well. We loved sitting out on the patio to view the sunsets in the evening and also take advantage of the hot tub. The cottage was well supplied with amenities, toilet paper, paper towels, towels, beach towels, etc. Internet and phone service were a challenge at times. A short ride to Petosky and Harbor Springs offered a nice getaway and when the weather got cool we took a day trip to Mackinac. The Leggs Inn restaurant was delightful. The view from the master bedroom was breathtaking! In all it was a special family time, one we won't soon forget.

If the paradise of Michigan beaches and the most magnificent sunsets you have ever seen is your thing, then this is the place!

We went for a girl's weekend in the springtime-plenty of room for all the girls to sleep cozy in their own beds, lots of bathrooms-this beautiful home never feels crowded! Perfect gathering space in the kitchen and eating nook.

But the deck takes the prize! The lake views and sunsets are like none other! A perfect picture painted every night just for you!

Amazing Holiday Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 11 stayed in this home for an extended vacation and could not have had a better time. The house is beautiful and comfortable and the views are absolutely un-matched. Cozily watching night fall over Sturgeon Bay after a day spent skiing or enjoying the charms of Cross Village and Harbor Springs is an experience that we won't soon forget. It was incredible for my family to make ourselves at home in a place more luxurious than the finest hotel, with the freedom to gather together in the living room and kitchen or find solitude in this spacious haven. The owner made sure that everything was perfect and we were met with everything we were promised upon arrival. I am positive that we will come back for another stay some time soon.

Stunningly beautiful secluded location near the famous tunnel of trees yet only 20 minutes from Harbor Springs or Mackinaw City. Enjoy gorgeous sunsets from the hot tub set on the bluff overlooking the lake.
