Things to do during "cabin time" in Harbor Springs
Harbor Springs, MI and Lake Michigan lodging includes picture perfect sunset views across the sparkling waters of Lake Michigan and pristine sandy beaches. Nestled on the north shore of Little Traverse Bay, the 100 year-old City of Harbor Springs boasts the deepest Great Lakes harbor and a year-round resort waterfront community.
Why not start your Harbor Springs vacation home summer rental with a trip to town for a 75-minute history tour of the bay aboard the Stafford’s Pointer Boat and get all the tips on what to see during your stay. After your trip you’ll be right in the downtown Harbor Springs waterfront loaded with shops and restaurants offering a wide variety of cuisines and outdoor dining.
Check out Harbor Springs Visitor’s Guide Calendar because it is full of year-round events including festivals, concerts, local theater, and gallery exhibits. The Crooked Tree Art Center features work by local artists. In over ten art galleries, you’ll find the most exquisite bronze, hand-blown glass, fiber, wood, and pottery works of art. With its many galleries of distinction and fine antiques, it’s no wonder Harbor Springs is referred to as “The Carmel of the Midwest.”
Renters looking for cottages along Lake Michigan will not only appreciate your close proximity to water, great fishing, and relaxing time on the beach, a unique feature and popular attraction in Harbor Springs lies along its bluffs. The M-199 Tunnel of Trees offers a stunning 27.5 mile drive along the bluffs through the forest - especially spectacular in the fall when foliage is ablaze with color. You may find yourself wanting to stop in at one of the wineries along the Bay View Wine Trail that also winds along the bluffs to pick up a bottle of wine. Relax with a glass of your favorite beverage back on your own cabin deck surrounded by nature and peaceful woods.
Like to hike, taste wine, and savor fresh food? A stop in at the Pond Hill Farm is the place for you. Take a leisurely walk up through the strolling pastures for panoramic views of the Lake Michigan countryside. Heave a few fruits and vegetables out into their fields for the goat and sheep in their one-of-a-kind massive Squash Rocket slingshot. Sample some of their hand-crafted wines and beer and have a delicious meal at their farm to table Garden Cafe. Kids will love feeding the pigs, goats, sheep, chickens, and geese.
Renters looking for a Lake Michigan family ski destination won’t be disappointed with Harbor Spring’s two ski resorts, Boyne Highlands and Nub’s Nob. With over 100 groomed and maintained downhill runs in the area, bring your skis and snowboards or rent them at the resort. There are runs for every skill level and age. Miles of snowmobile trails and x-country skiing trails are in the town’s back yard as well. You can even try out dogsledding at The Outfitter.
Imagine all of this outdoor fun, and then returning back to the tranquility and comfort of your Lake Michigan cabin rental and relaxing next to a warm fire. You’re certain to have a good night’s sleep in your northern Michigan vacation home.
