Property description


Near Nub's Nob, and Boyne Highlands!


For your Fall Color Tour, Cozy Family Thanksgiving, Holiday & Winter Ski Getaways, Spring Break, and Summer Vacations!!

New in 2006, this cottage style home has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a total living area 2,400 sq. ft. Plenty of room to spread out. This house is truly designed with the family in mind, with separate spaces for the grown-ups and kids alike.

Vintage Mod, Baby! It's luxurious, with a retro feel - sure to evoke a flashback or two. The shag carpeting, custom ceramic tile, custom woodwork and a mix of retro antiques and custom furniture (not to mention a few surprises), will help make this a vacation to remember.

Located in Harbor Springs opposite Lake Michigan on the famous Tunnel of Trees - a top destination for bicyclists. You're close to such vacation spots as Petoskey, Charlevoix, Cross Village, The Inland Water Way and The Straits of Mackinaw.

Atop this 130' bluff, witness panoramic views that will allow you to see all the way to Charlevoix and on some days even Beaver Island! Enjoy these views from the home as well as from the meandering bluffside staircase with secluded sun deck that leads to the very private sandy frontage* (see notes) on Lake Michigan. Reminiscent of America's Pacific Northwest, you can walk for miles up and down without seeing a single person!* (see notes)

*SEE "Notes" located below "Rates" for further shoreline info.

Additional information about rental rates


  • Tax Rate 6%


* Lake level changes and storms, can greatly effect the size and makeup of this lake Michigan shoreline. In average lake level conditions the shoreline is a mix of sand and rocks with a sandy strip of beach that goes for miles up the coast. When entering the water there is usually rocks about 20' or so then all sand. In high level years, much of this sandy strip can disappear exposing underlying rocks. In these conditions, when entering water it is usually ALL sand. Click on Owners website link then go to Photo page for more details. This is the nature of the Lake Michigan coast, and can not be controlled. These are the two extremes we have observed. Its impossible to predict. Shoreline conditions can change dramatically in just a few months time, but regardless of the makeup of the shore it is always beautiful!
