About the neighbourhood
The Boat House has only a sidewalk separating it from the sandy beach. There is a playground and a tennis court in our community. We are 1 and 1/2 miles from Harbor Springs, an old resort town with restaurants and shops. Petoskey is half and hour away and is our closest city.
Getting around
You will need a car to get around but please bring your bikes too. There are many bike paths around. Also bring your paddle boards, kayaks, skis, snowboards, sleds, and other 'toys' depending upon the season.

How to get there
Airport: Pellston: 36.0 km
Looking forward to welcoming you to our Boat House! Our address is 5087 Forest Beach Dr., Harbor Springs, MI (go through Harbor Springs going north and at the end of the Harbor Point Golf Course, turn left. Look for the garden railroad and park in front of it. The Boat House is above the garage beyond our cottage.) We will leave it unlocked with the key on the table for your use.

Our nearest airport is Pellston, half an hour away. But Traverse City, an hour and a half away, is bigger.
