Harbor Springs Waterfront Homes
Harbor Springs' year-round population is just over 1,200, but in the summer, the waterfront town is teeming with energy as families return to their second home for the season. With the deepest freshwater harbor in the Great Lakes, this is the perfect spot for all your boating endeavors, from laid back paddle boarding and kayaking to zipping around on a Boston Whaler. Take a closer look at the abundance of sailboats anchored in the protected harbor and you’ll notice the iconic NM sailboats, designed in the 1930s specifically for racing in Little Traverse Bay.
As an area that truly shines in the summer, you’d be hard pressed to find a more exceptional location for a lakefront home or cottage. Annual summer events include the much adored Blissfest Folk & Roots Festival for live music galore, a celebration of local artworks at Art in the Park as part of the town’s 4th of July festivities, and the wildly popular Ugotta Regatta, where sailboats from around the country flock to Little Traverse Bay to participate.
September brings a riot of autumnal colors to the area, best enjoyed on a drive up the Tunnel of Trees with a stop at Pond Hill Farm or Legs Inn for lunch. Come winter, you’ll find a wonderland of snow, ideal for hitting the slopes at Nub’s Nob or Boyne Highlands. If you don’t ski, rent a pair of snowshoes from the Outfitter and explore one of the many nearby nature preserves. In warmer months, enjoy the unique opportunity to play 18 “greatest hits” of legendary golf course designer Donald Ross’s best work at the Donald Ross Memorial Golf Course just north of town.
Downtown Harbor Springs offers a variety of dining options with long-standing institutions including Stafford’s Pier, the New York, Turkey’s, Bar Harbor, and Gurney’s. Indulgent sweet treats found at Tom’s Mom’s Cookies, Yummy’s, and Kilwin’s are not to be missed. With endlessly stunning scenery, a myriad of year-round activities, and marvelous small town charm, Harbor Springs is one of the most picturesque, safe, and welcoming communities to call home.
