Taking reservations now. This is a new listing. Totally renovated 1890 house. Modern amenities with cottage charm. All new Pella windows. On the main floor, the first bedroom suite with queen size bed, has the original tongue and groove wood ceiling and walls for that true cottage feel. The second bedroom with another queen size bed on the main floor overlooks the beautifully landscaped and private backyard. Large living room and dining room with bead board, has an open concept.The kitchen is fully stocked and has brand new granite countertops. The all new beautiful wood floors are in keeping with the charm of the house. Upstairs is a very large bedroom suite with an antique four poster single bed along with a day bed that can turn into 2 twin beds for a total of sleeping for 3. This sunny bedroom has many windows. It has its own bathroom with an antique claw foot tub. Enjoy your morning coffee on the lovely wrap around porch. Relax in a lawn chair in the landscaped and private backyard that has a tree lined wooded bluff. Walk a few feet up the gentle backyard slope to view the bay and Harbor Point. Later that night, roast some marshmallows at the fire pit in the seclusion of the backyard while you gaze at the amazing stars so easily seen in the northern Michigan skies. Nice privacy with nothing but the bluff behind you. This is a very quiet street one block north and parallel to Main Street and 2 blocks down from the main downtown area. Convenient and quiet. Harbor Springs is a charming turn of the century waterfront community that boasts of having the deepest harbor in the Great Lakes. Its clear water is fed by artesian springs. Enjoy the many water fountains to get a refreshing sip of water as you stroll around town shopping or eating at one of the many fine restaurants. There are an abundance of outdoor activities to enjoy in this picturesque area. From taking in the magnificence of the stately cottages, a dip in the lake, to having a bike ride along Beach Dr., there are many things to do besides golf, tennis, kayaking, sailing and boating. Or just relax and take in the beauty of the area. We will have a an information guide to help you get the most out of your vacation waiting for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We live in Harbor Springs permanently now. Our family has been enjoying Harbor Springs since the 1920s. We moved here full time because summers were just not enough time here. The beauty, clean spring fed water, beaches and clean air are hard to beat.

Why the Owner Chose Harbor Springs, MI, USA:
This house was built in 1890. It has been completely renovated while keeping its cottage charm intact. It's within walking distance of everything. The location is perfect. 3 bedrooms and 3 baths

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Look at the bay and Harbor Point when you walk a few feet up the back yard. Walk down to the beach (Zorn is best ), go boating(the Zoll launch is right here), sailing or kayaking or biking by bringing your own or renting. Many top notch golf courses are right around the corner. The beauty, clean spring fed water, beaches and clean air are wonderful. Leave your car because you don't have to use it. Skiing both down hill and cross country as just minutes away.
