Great Summer Vacation!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay (mid-Aug 2019)! We were 2 families from out of state (3 parents, 6 children) and the 9 of us fit comfortably! The unit had older furnishings, fixtures and decorations, but it was very comfortable and we had a fantastic time!!
The TH was clean and well-stocked (pillows, blankets, bath towels, beach towels, dishes, detergent, hangers, etc). For our 10-day stay, it was nice having a washer and dryer in the unit and they worked wonderfully. The tall standing fan in each bedroom was nice at night + the temps were great!
Parking is right out front and was very easy with our 2 vehicles. There is space for 2 vehicles for each of the 4 TH units, and if needed there was plenty of extra parking at the poolhouse around the corner. We didn't use the indoor pool but saw folks enjoying it. The outdoor pool was having a new fence installed and was being filled during our last day, so didn't take advantage of that.
We explored Soo Locks, Canada, Macinac Island and City, Headlands Park, Charlevoix, Petoskey, and Harbor Springs. Pipers Mighty Good Pizza was close by and delicious.
The private/community beach was fun, and it was nice having the beachhouse (restrooms, indoor and outdoor tables, outdoor wash-off station), firepit, etc.
The owners Stephanie and Gerritt were terrific! We had emailed them before out trip to ask about laundry and parking, and their place was very welcoming and enjoyable!
The condo was nice, however would have liked to have had an updated oven/microwave. Loved having washer/dryer. The week ended up being very hot, so sleeping was uncomfortable without an air conditioner. However, during the day we didn't really need AC. It's a great spot to vacation with family given the private beach area. We were very disappointed that the outdoor pool was out of commission. We were told that it would be fixed by the 4th of July, however, we rarely even saw anyone attempting to work on the pool the week we were there. Overall, we had a great visit. The owners of this condo were great at quickly responding to my correspondence.
Very nice and roomy condo
We had a great time. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen, and tons of space and beds for up to 10 people to sleep. The kids loved the "bunk room" (2 bunk beds in the same room), and we were only like 10 minutes to Boyne highlands and about the same to downtown Petoski
Met our needs for a family ski vacation
We enjoyed our time. Condo has a lived in feel, appliances could be updated. Parking a bit unclear. Super convenient to ski resorts and all amenities.
If it weren't for the facilities at Harbor Cove I would have given this condo a 2 star. The condo is in major need of renovation! My family liked the large kitchen table, the stone fireplace, the pictures and the master bedroom was ok. The rest of the house felt like a college rental. What was there was functional but worn out and/or didn't match. I have stayed in several rentals and all had that "wow" factor that let you know you were on vacation. Those rentals were also in the same price range as this condo.
As you walk in you're greeted by a brown indoor/outdoor carpet and an uneven floor around the steps. The kitchen is from 1990. Above the ceiling is only half painted. The couches are well broken in. Upstairs is no different. The bathroom has yellow faded linoleum which I think used to be white. The toilet runs non stop and the shower door falls off everytime you move it. In many places the wallpaper is faded or torn. In the bunk room the beds are placed in a way that restricts access to one of the windows and the closet. There is a TV upstairs...but no cables to make it work. During our stay it was rather warm so the fans were nice as the upstairs gets very warm.
With all that negative being said, my family did have a great time in the area and Harbor cove. The private beach was great! It was not crowded and very beautiful. The outdoor and indoor pools were also great. I've never been in such a warm heated outdoor pool. The hot tub and sauna were also nice. The grilling stations around the condo and pool were convenient and well taken care of.
The location was perfect sorted in between Harbor Springs and Petoskey. There is also several other nearby attractions that are easy to get to. Almost every drive is scenic to boot.
This condo has a lot of potential but for the price it needs serious renovations! There are others that that are updated and very nice for around the same price or cheaper.
We had a great time.
Had a great time! We really enjoyed Harbor Sorings and Petoskey. Pirates Cove mini golf and Petoskey Brewety were especially enjoyable. It was hot the week we stayed, so air conditioning would have been nice. But other than that, all was great! The beach was beautiful; we really enjoyed cooking out there. The pool was also very nice.
