Driving again! This time I am heading to Northern Michigan (about 4 hours north of Pentwater) to the Harbor Springs area. I grew up vacationing in Northern Michigan so I am rather excited about this trip. I am going to be in and around the Little Traverse Bay area so I thought I would select Harbor Springs Township to feature. The town of Harbor Springs, sits at the south end of the township with Cross Village marking the northern edge. The "Tunnel of Trees" as it is called connects the two with views of Lake Michigan visible almost the whole 20 mile stretch. Cross Village is home to the famous Legs Inn, an authentic Polish restaurant family owned and operated for over 90 years, and is well worth the drive. Harbor Springs, which is just a ten minute drive from my family's vacation home, is a beautiful small town that comes alive during the summer months. Some of my almost favorite local attractions are:
- Tom's Mom's Cookies - I will be sure to enjoy some fresh out of their oven and bring a dozen home!
- The Outfitter - the go to store for all your outdoor needs
- American Spoon Foods - amazing for all things jarred.

This recently renovated home has a great location with just a ten minute drive to downtown Harbor and access to 250' of Lake Michigan beachfront. Other features include: a finished basement, a carriage house and lots of cottage charm.
House #2: $250,000 - $500,000
The view from this home is definitely its main selling point however it also has other great attributes such as an updated kitchen, lots of bedrooms, and 100' of beachfront access.
House #3: $500,000 - $750,000
This home is located just north of Cross Village and is completely new construction. It sits on the beach with amazing views out to the lake from almost every room. Another bonus is its large lot size.
House #4: $750,000 - $1,000,000
This historic home basically has it all. A very convenient location to Harbor, a view and direct and easy access to the lake. It has also a guest cottage which would be great for large gatherings.
