We are open all year round! Let the Surf Cottage of Harbor Springs be your Fall, Winter, and Spring destination.

Not to mention saving $2000 a week, off our summer rates!

- Romantic Getaway - Beautiful Lake Michigan, peaceful country drives, quaint towns, golden sunsets, cozy fireplace.....

 - Hunting - Spend your Hunting Season in Style! Close to acres of state land for the fall turkey, and deer hunting seasons.

Downhill, or cross country skiing -  Cross country from the "The Surf Cottage", or take a short drive to Boyne Highlands, or Nubs Nob for a day on the slopes.

 - Snowmobiling -  For those of you that need a motor to bust the snow drifts and carve the white powder you can leave right from "The Surf Cottage", and ride miles of seasonal roads, and groomed trail systems.

 - Shopping - Especially Christmas Shopping! The Petoskey, Macinaw Region is quaint towns, with snow flakes, and Christmas lights. Full of unique shops, and cozy warm restaurants. We even have many of the Big Chain stores, with only a fraction of the traffic, and crowds. Turn your holiday shopping experience from a yearly holiday chore, into a Norman Rockwell painting. 

 - Spring Break - Yeah, thats right, Spring Break. Okay, so most people go south, but you don't know how many times a blast of spring reaches these northern regions. Its like nowhere on earth. What better place to spend those first 60, and 70 degree days, but on the bluff of "The Surf Cottage" kicking back on an adirondack chair, enjoying the panorama. Not to mention our April SpecialThree nights, for the price of Two! Since we specialize in last minute bookings, when the weather's looking good, give us a call, and we'll get you in no problem!
