Harbert MI Cherry Beach Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

November 3 to 5, 2017: Our family spent a wonderful weekend at the Cherry Beach Rental in Harbert, MI for a recent Notre Dame football weekend. The house was perfect for our family (4 adults and 3 children). House was extremely clean and well maintained with wonderful beddings/towels. Owner was extremely helpful in our pre-arrival logistics and came over to introduce himself when we arrived. Great location to Michigan beaches, wineries, restaurants, golf courses and fun shops. We will consider renting this property again next summer! Thank you!

Wonderful Lake Life House!

  • 5 of 5

Had a long girls weekend with my Mom. First, this house is huge!!! There are two master suites, each at both ends of the house. This feature makes it perfect for several couples or a large family or families that can enjoy their own space. The big master in the back has a huge fireplace with a fun faux candle display that makes the room warm & cozy. It also has a large screened in porch off the master - perfect for morning coffee or dinner after the beach. The kitchen is fully equipped and the living area is very comfy. The house is close to the train tracks and it only bothered us on the first night. There is a full sized washing machine and dryer as well as beach stuff: huge beach towels, two chairs, and a full sized cooler. We didn't spend much time out in the yard, but there is a large porch with a dining table as well as fire pit and lots of room to spread out and play. We drove to the beach (parking pass included) - it is only a minute drive away from the house, but there are 61 steps to get to the beach at the bottom...and 61 steps to get back up! The beach is stunning (and worth every one of the 61 steps!) - I think because of the time of year, it was full of these wonderful, round, smooth rocks. We did lots of hunting and found lots of treasures (including fossils!!!). Stay for the AMAZING sunsets too!!! We went to Mak Salon (just down the road) for massages as well as a local fruit stand, Nye's Apple Barn, shopping in St. Joe (another beautiful beach!) and wine tasting at The Round Barn Winery and St. Julien (our fave!). We highly recommend this house and Patrick is very helpful and communicated with use before our stay. There is also this fun, whimsical art scattered through out the house. The only down side - our stay was too short!! We look forward to coming back for another (longer) stay! Thank you Patrick.

Wonderful Family Vacation House!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cherry Beach Ranch has tons of room and is beautifully decorated! My family felt right at home. The owners are so helpful and were very available through text and phone for any questions. The location was perfect with a pleasant walk to a scenic beach. We will definitely be back to the area and will think about this house again!

Extremely Comfortable and Well Appointed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a weekend with a group of friends and couldn't have been more satisfied. The inside of the home was expansive and easily accommodated 8 people. The furniture is comfortable and the walls are covered in art, which creates a relaxing environment. The outdoor space is large. We appreciated the multitude of chairs to enjoy time on the deck or around the fire pit. Lastly, the home was very clean. I would not hesitate to return to this property in the future.
