About Patricia Lang, manager

I just retired after working 38 years as a special education teacher. I am looking forward to spending more time in Harbor Springs. Here I am with my son, Eric and three grandchildren Antonia, Zane, and Cale, and my sister, Gertrude who helps with the garden.

Patricia Lang, manager purchased this house in 1996

Why Patricia Lang, manager chose Northwest

My best friend, Carol, who grew up spending summers and holidays in the area always told me how beautiful and special this whole area of Michigan is and especially the city of Harbor Springs. So, when I visited in 1996 I learned how true her words are. I thought it would be a wonderful place to spend with family and friends...and it is!

What makes this house unique

The location of The Park View House is perfect. It borders the park with the public beach, shops and restaurants, and yet it is private. The views of the park, church and bay are the best of Harbor Springs. It is just a short walk to the dogie beach.

Wonderful & fulfilling Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay. The ambiance of the home with the view of all that Harbor Springs has to offer are on par with the Hampton's. Even the church bells add to the charm of out stay.

Great location in relation to restaurants, shops, the harbor, and park.

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I are retired and stayed in the upper unit for 10 days in August 2016 and overall had a very positive experience. We came north from Texas to escape the summer heat, mission accomplished! I grilled out on the deck 4 or 5 times and enjoyed looking out over the park and beach area. We walked to restaurants and ice cream shops!! The twice weekly farmers market is right out front of the house and we took advantage of that. Also, once a week there are street musicians out in the evening and that was great to be able to just walk out the door and listen to. We also took a fishing charter, Plumbers Helper, out of Bay Harbor and came home with awesome lake trout and salmon fillets. We met and talked to the owner Patricia several times and she could not have been nicer. I would say the property needs some TLC, but for the price and location, it was perfect. The negatives have more to do with external factors, not the property. The church across the street rings it's bells at 6 a.m. every day. The first day I almost fell out of bed. The rest of the time, I made sure the bedroom sliding glass door was shut and that eliminated most of the problem. The other issue has to do with noise also. The restaurant adjacent to the property dumps it's empty bottles into a dumpster at various times of the day and night, which also is startling the first time you hear it. The first morning we heard the crash of bottles in the dumpster about an hour after the church bells went off!!! Haaaa. So, plan on taking a nap the first day. I would say that if you were coming with a young family, the negatives wouldn't be much of a factor. The kids would love being able to go across the street to the park and small beach. For us retired types, maybe something more peaceful next time would be more suitable.

clean convenient to downtown Harbor Springs

  • 3 of 5

Nice condo, clean. Convenient location. Master bed extremely soft, scratchy sheets. I had a very difficult time sleeping. Didn't bother my husband. Church bells across the street ring every single morning at 6AM.

Great Downtown Rental!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this rental is absolutely perfect! The property is adjacent to a beautiful park and steps from the beach. In addition, it's within easy walking distance (2-5 minutes!) to restaurants, shops, and the pier. We have rented both the upstairs and downstairs units and have enjoyed both. After renting at the Park View House 5 or 6 times, we are convinced that it is a great value.

Great rental. Everything within walking distance. Have rented upstairs and downstairs units many summers. Peaceful mornings on the lower deck. Nice park right out front for the dogs and kids. The beach is steps away. Always clean. Owners are very accommodating.

Memorable Family Time

  • 5 of 5

Our Family LOVED The Park View House! The location is literally right downtown with views of the harbor and next to the park which is so nice if you travel with your pets. My kids loved walking to get coffee or candy. It is across from the beautiful and historic Holy Childhood of Jesus Catholic Church. We have many beautiful memories of our stay there because it is small and very cozy our family of 6 were together all the time. There is a fold out sleeper sofa in the living area. The price is great and the location superb only 10 minutes from Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob. The owner is very kind and easy to work with!
