Step into your own piece of home in Harbor Springs, MI.

A two-minute walk to My Sister's Bake Shop for morning scones and coffee, a five-minute drive to town for dinner at Mustang Wendy's, and just 10-minutes from Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands.

Happily go back in time with your family and friends without internet or TV interrupting your special vacation together.

Joe and I are honored to host folks from all backgrounds. We look forward to making you feel at home in our home.

The space

Two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a sitting room all to yourself! Spread out and enjoy. Cheaper than a hotel, more spacious and sustainable.

Guest access

The entire second floor. Guests enter through our living space on the first floor and travel up the stairs to their space.

Interaction with guests

As new hosts, Joe and/or I will be home throughout guests' stay to help when needed as we learn what is needed.

Other things to note

Journey, our loving dog, does roam freely in the house. She has not yet visited guests upstairs without us going up too, but she could because the space is not separated by a door. She is the best snuggler!

I couldn't make it but my friends were able to go to Emily and Joe's place. They were more than accommodating and everyone had a great time!

Emily's communication was great and it was wonderful to have somewhere to stay so close to the city while still being able to enjoy the country aspect.

Emily and Joe were incredible hosts, willing to help in any way they could, and offered some really great suggestions for places to eat that we probably wouldn't have found on our own. Would definitely recommend. Our only regret was forgetting to pet the baby chicks on the way out!

The host canceled this reservation 75 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

Hi! Joe, Journey and I moved to northern Michigan to build community, start our family, and find ways to live more gently on the earth. Sharing our home with you is part of our mission.

Journey (our dog) epitomizes our faith in the universe. On the last day of a 700-mile bike trip across Wisconsin, I found $441 on the side of the road. I called 911 to turn in the cash. I agreed to meet the policeman at Tractor Supply Store. It happened to be dog adoption day and I immediately fell in love with the only puppy there that would fit in my pannier (bike bag). I turned in the money and left with little Journey. You will get to meet this special pup when you stay with us.
