Ok, so the surfing's not as good as Oahu's North Shore, but it is just as beautiful!!
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 little ones 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.

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 on Lake Michigan* (read below). Reminiscent of America's Pacific Northwest, this is the secluded shoreline you have dreamed of. You can walk for miles without seeing a single person*.
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 (25 min.),  Cross Village (25 min.), and The Inland Water Way (30 min.). 

Not to mention your only 40 minutes to The Straits of Mackinaw, and all that area has to offer! Ferries to Mackinac Island, Restaurants, Shops, Fort Michilimackinac, etc.... Oh don't forget about Fudge!!

* 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. In these conditions, when entering the water there is usually a strip of rocks to walk across about 10 to 30'' or so out, then it is all sand. In high lake level years, much of the sandy strip on shore can disappear exposing underlying rocks. In these conditions though, when entering water it is usually ALL sand ALL the way out. (See Surf Cottage Photo Page) 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!
