The Cliff House

Type: HouseBedrooms: 3Bathrooms: 3
Beds: 5Sleeps: 14Pets: No
Min Night Stay: 3
  • 3 Queen
  • 2 Bunk

INSIDE THE HOME:

Wide open floor plan with incredible Lake Michigan views from almost every room. Modern and comfortable furniture throughout. Plenty of room to spread out, with room to sleep 14 people in beds! Enjoy the views and use of a powerful telescope that allows you to see the Beaver and Fox Islands clearly as well as Charlevoix to the south. Private main floor bedroom, upper loft bedroom space, and a spacious downstairs gives plenty of room for families to spread out.

Please note that the house does not have central air conditioning but does have a whole house fan. Internet access is through satellite and can be spotty due to weather conditions.

OUTSIDE:

Spectacular views from the two expansive decks on the rear of the home. Stairs down to the private frontage on Lake Michigan complete with a private deck at the bottom right next to the sand. Extremely quiet stretch of beach with no other close accesses, it is truly as private of a beach setting as you will find in the Lower Peninsula.

There is a family of bald eagles living on the property, you will enjoy watching them fly gracefully through the air, and you can even watch them go “fishing” in the mornings as you enjoy your coffee. The house is located on the famed “Tunnel of Trees” and is close to many incredible attractions, such as Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Boyne Highlands Ski Resort, Nubs Nob Ski Resort, Mackinaw City and the Mackinac Bridge, Wilderness State Park, Legs Inn, and SO MUCH MORE!

Parking: There is room for at least 5 vehicles in the circle driveway as well as on the vacant lot across the street which also belongs to the property.

Bedroom #1: Queen master bedroom on main floor with en suite full master bath

THE LOCATION:

The property is located directly on the “Tunnel of Trees” just north of Harbor Springs. A beautiful spot for summer beach fun, fall color tours and winter seclusion and skiing.

Guest Reviews of the cliff house

4.67 out of 5 stars based on 3 user reviews.

Fantastic vacation home with spectacular views!

Driving up to the property, it appears very modest and very traditional. The home has a stone fireplace/chimney and stone on the front.Walking through the front door is a totally different experience. It has the real WOW factor, once you see Lake Michigan and the beautiful, contemporary interior of this clean, SPOTLESS home!This place was awesome, and has plenty of room for a large group. We only had two couples, so if felt like we needed a few more people to help us enjoy this super vacation home!Eagles greeted us on two of the three days! An immature eagle and one adult. One morning we were sitting enjoying coffee and the adult flew within 10 feet of the wall of windows! Their nest was spotted as you walk down the steps to the beach (approximately 200 steps to the beach). Great exercise for those adventurous vacationers. If you like a hint of remoteness, but all the conveniences of home, this is the place for you!The beds were extremely comfortable; new Casper foam mattresses! What a treat! We're planning to replace our bed at home and are seriously considering the exact same mattress.I'm an architect, and I look at construction detailing, final painting issues, etc. This house was a gem in terms interior painting, tile work, millwork, etc. We couldn't find a flaw inside this home. Which is saying a lot! The windows were perfectly clean, inside and out! What a treat, especially with the wildlife and the beautiful natural site! Sunsets were out of this world, as you have a huge horizon line to capture the full view, unobstructed and about 200 feet above the shoreline.We will be scheduling a return stay, for sure!!! Loved our stay!PS Unsalted Vacations, you have really raised the bar for vacation properties! You supplied plenty of accessories, toiletries, and an ultra-spotless home! You should be congratulated on this fantastic property! THANK YOU

Amazing Views, lots of space

Review by RJ R.
The house was great. Views of the lake were spectacular, especially at sunset. Loved the layout of the house being so open. One of the best equipped kitchens I have ever seen in a rental home. No major complaints, just a few inconveniences. The bath towels were extremely small and prevented modesty when walking from shower to change. Make sure to pack extra TP if going for more than a couple days, since they only provide two rolls per bathroom. We were warned internet could be spotty, but it did create some issues for guests that needed to check in with their jobs. House itself was very clean, but the driveway was covered in a significant amount of snow and ice. If you are brining a car in winter, make sure you have enough strong people to push the cars out onto the road.

Scenic and beautiful stay

Review by Ingrid A.
We loved staying at Claudia's Cliff House, it was better than home away from home. Beautiful view of northern part of Lake Michigan, across Beaver Island. Stunning sunsets, view of wild life (we saw a bald eagle go fishing!), close to natural preserves for easy walks, or going to the lake for more adventurous terrain during winter. Only 20 minutes from the ski area Nub's Nob, and many quaint little towns along M-119, from Harbor Springs to Wilderness State Park. After stocking up with whole foods at the local grocery store in town, Claudia's home had everything we needed as to kitchen utensils, to make our own food after a day's play skiing or just enjoying the surrounding area. The open concept of the house allowed us to have a view of the lake while eating breakfast or dinner. The house is spacious, in the evening the adults could have a conversation sitting around the fireplace sipping wine for the evening, while the kiddos were on the opposite corner of the house (still in view) playing board games. The house is beautifully decorated, top to bottom windows allowing to catch a view of the lake no matter where you stood. Will definitely come back, next time in the summer or fall to enjoy the beautiful beach or fall colors. Thank you Claudia!!! We loved your home!
