Enjoy a relaxing, family getaway in this charming furnished Harbor Springs vacation rental home located on a private hilltop with views of Little Traverse Bay. Harbor Hilltop is centrally located between Harbor Springs and Petoskey on M-119.
The driveway takes you past a neighboring pole barn before meandering up a wooded hill opening up into a large, open yard. The architecture of the large front porch gives this rental a colonial feel. Featuring large front and back yards, this home is perfect for entertaining summer barbecues or evening S’mores!
On the first floor, you’ll find the kitchen, dining room, living room, and a den that doubles as a bedroom with a pyramid bed (queen size mattress on the bottom and a twin-size mattress on the top). There are two TVs, one in the living room and one in the den. Upstairs are three more bedrooms.
Wake up in the king size master suite to the sounds of birds chirping right outside your private balcony and enjoy the distant views of Little Traverse Bay as you sip your morning coffee. The second level also features two guest bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. These two rooms are connected by a Jack and Jill full bath.
This beautiful, well-maintained and loved home is located just five minutes from Petoskey State Park, which boasts one of the area’s best beaches. Also nearby is a wide range of activities and dining throughout Harbor Springs and Petoskey.

“We had a very enjoyable week at this cottage. It was very spacious and extremely well equipped. We would definitely stay here again as it met all of our needs!”

“The home is clean, quiet, private, well appointed. The location while not in town worked well. Nice shaded walk to Harbor Springs. Kitchen was used. Everything needed was there. Outdoor firepit a plus.”

“Home was clean, nicely decorated with comfortable beds and bedding. Kitchen was well stocked to allow for cooking meals for 8. The setting was lovely, up on a hill, surrounded by trees so that you had the feeling you were in the woods, yet just up a long drive from the main road. Road noise was not an issue. The home is nicely laid out to accommodate 8 guests. The front porch and fire pit were added bonuses, as was the balcony off the master bath and expansive front yard. Only downside was inability to control the thermostat. The upper bedrooms were quite stuffy for sleeping, and we needed to open the windows at bedtime. Cookies and microwave popcorn were a nice touch with the numerous tourist brochures of the area. I would highly recommend this home, and would stay here again.”

“We couldn’t have been happier with our stay at the Hilltop Home. We arrived to a beautiful home that was sparkling clean and full of bright light. We had a group made up of two families (4 adults and 5 kids ages 3-10). Everything in the home is in really great condition. We are picky about our beds but these beds are in great shape, and the bedding was very comfortable. The living area is open and spacious, which was great for allowing the kids space to play while adults relaxed and talked. The linen closet was stocked full of extra towels and bathrooms were immaculate. Also not to be overlooked is the amazing front porch! Plenty of seating made for a great spot to enjoy watching the local fireworks for our 4th of July stay. Also important to families with kids – the laundry room is quite large with newer appliances that made corralling sandy shoes, swimsuits and dirty clothes a breeze. The home itself is located right off of M-119, so it is convenient for trips into downtown Harbor Springs, but also an easy shot into Petoskey. The property does share a driveway with neighbors that have several pets, and the neighbors have asked that you drive slowly as you enter and exit the property, which is more than reasonable – especially given that the top portion of the driveway belonging to the Hilltop house is quite steep! Overall a great week at a clean and well-kept home! We would definitely stay at the Hilltop Home again!”
