Why G L Flis chose Northwest

Willow Villa is designed to welcome you to your home away from home.

The wonderful community of Harbor Cove in Harbor Springs, MI will bring you and your family closer to the activities you enjoy the most.

What we have discovered about the Harbor Cove community is that it provides a casual & relaxing approach to Little Traverse Bay living. The conveniences of both Harbor Springs and Petoskey are a few minutes drive in either direction. Yet, its just a short stroll along sandy forest paths, through the summer sunshine to our private beach. Shared picnicking and barbecue areas throughout the grounds have allowed us to make new friends; which is why we have been told by many that they and their children have returned to Harbor Cove year after year.

What makes this villa unique

With nearly a mile of private beach on Little Traverse Bay of Lake Michigan, numerous family activities and hiking trails, it has something for everyone. Willow Villa is a bright and spacious house with multiple living spaces along with 5 bedrooms. It's the perfect place to relax in comfort.

The position of Harbor Cove beach on the north shore of Little Traverse Bay has provided us the opportunity to enjoy countless sunrises and scrap books full of sunset views over the open waters of Lake Michigan.

Sailing, wind surfing and lake swimming start in early June......and our summer beach video "A Day at the Beach" was filmed in late September!

High season in summer offers soft sand, crystal clear water and warm breezes. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Overview of our stay at Willow Villa....

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience at Willow Villa. Our initial contact with the owner was very efficient and informative and he was readily available when we had a few questions during our stay. We were happily surprised when we arrived that the condo was very clean and fully stocked with towels, amenities, beach bags/beach towels, plenty of soap, shampoo, laundry soap, board games, etc.! The decorating was very nice also - it looked exactly as the photos show. The best thing about it for our family was the layout and the space. With so many bedrooms and two separate family rooms - everyone was able to relax and enjoy themselves without feeling like we were crowded. The kitchen was very open with a huge dining room and living room attached. We had 7 people staying there, and it was plenty of room. The pool and tennis courts were directly next to the unit - great for the kids. The only downfall was that we overlooked a large parking lot on one side when we were outside on the deck. Great proximity to downtown Harbor Springs and Petoskey. Overall, a great experience and we would highly recommend it.

We loved the place. It is absolutely beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. It is located very close to both the outdoor and indoor pools. This was very convenient with the kids.

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

I want to rave about our stay at Willow Villa! From the basics to the finishing touches, this place has it all. We had 10 people staying in the house and everyone was comfortable, never crowded. The owner has put some amazing features into the house that really make it feel homey. Everyone loved how close the pool was (a 30 second walk away) and how lovely the beach was. I would go back in a heartbeat. The owner was so easy to deal with as well, and I cannot say enough great things about the home. The website pictures are a true depiction of the property. Enjoyed every minute!
