Overview

About the property

An updated pre-civil war home on East Third St. nestled against the bottom of the bluff in the heart of downtown Harbor Springs. Originally remodeled and occupied in the early 1900's by Charles Caskey, builder of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island.

Located two short blocks from Little Traverse Bay, marinas, and city beaches. Five mile drive to golf/skiing at Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands. Wood floors, wood ceilings and large antique glass windows keep inside sunny and bright. Upstairs bedroom has an additional sitting room with a peek at the bay. The sheltered front porch and small wooded back yard are perfect for relaxing and enjoying the outside.

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location, and only steps away from first-class shopping, restaurants, and the beautiful harbor. Harbor Springs was the right choice for our vacation rental. It's just around the Bay from Petoskey and much more sophisticated and quiet. This home was ideal for our family and dogs. Can't wait to go back.

Wonderful, comfortable home in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights in the house and had a great trip. With the open concept kitchen/bar, we made lots of meals in the full kitchen, ate outside on the picnic table, used the grill, enjoyed the front porch and watched people strolling by. Every night we walked the short block down to the harbor to get ice cream, check out the boats, and enjoy the lovely town of Harbor Springs. In the mornings we went down to the cafes for coffee and pastries. The owner of the home is very responsive and accommodating. The bed was extremely comfortable and with AC units we were always cool. There is a washer and dryer to use as well. We would recommend this lovely home to anyone.
