Description

As you drive up the long and curving paved driveway and come to the crest of the hill, there sits a large and beautiful four story home with a circle drive. The gracious house is located in Good Hart, MI and surrounded by mowed lawn and stately birch/maple/oak trees. The recently built residence has four bedroom/5.5 bath home sleeps 14 with A/C in the bedrooms, 2 flat screen TVs, fire pit, a separate bar in lower level and is within 1.5 miles of Lake Michigan's spectacular beaches.

Entering the welcoming porch and front door, instantly the unique character of this special place is recognized. The large great room has a beautiful two story stone fireplace and surrounded on three sides by French doors. Two sets of the doors lead to a wraparound porch with tables/umbrellas and chairs. An ideal place for a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine. The other set of doors leads to a most inviting screened in porch with wicker furnishings and a swing bed for summer sleeping.

The creative furnishing of traditional, modern and antique sets the tone for the rest of the interior.

There is wood flooring throughout the home. The overstuffed white sofas and yellow/white check chair invite you to relax and enjoy your stay. An antique sofa separates the room, creating a separate conversational area or watching the flat screen TV.

Just off the great room is a large new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, double oven, granite counter tops and island with gas stove. There is plenty of prep area for preparing a wonderful meal. Just off the kitchen is a long wooden table with seating for 10-12.

There, also, is a half bath and mud room near the garage entrance.

On the second level, there are three bedrooms en-suites. The first is the master en-suite with king bed, walk-in closet; and, its own separate screened-in porch overlooking the lawn and woods. The second king bedroom ensuite includes a unique feature with antique pane windows overlooking the great room and fireplace. In the hallway entering this bedroom, there is a separate desk area for keeping in touch. The third bedroom on this level is called "The Lost Boys Room" from "Neverland" where you'll never want to grow up. It has three double beds and one queen with a trunk or footlocker at the end of three. The room has the most interesting walls and vaulted ceilings leading to Interlocking "V"s.

On the third level is the cheery "Girls Room" ensuite with a princess flair. It has three queen beds and three small makeup tables. At the head of each bed is a wonderful large arched window allowing the sun to shine through and create a bright and welcoming feeling. A similar vaulted "V" ceiling creates an even more dramatic effect.

On the lower level is a third gathering area with a large flat screen TV, bar area, second fire replace and a three season sun room with two "swing beds" and table/chairs. This level, also, has a full bath and large laundry room.

The outdoor fire pit is surrounded by stone tiles which make for great summer/fall nights roasting marshmallows or smores.  A charcoal grill is available for use.

NO EVENTS OR GATHERINGS LARGER THAN THE NUMBER OF DESIGNATED ALLOWABLE GUESTS ARE PERMITTED.

Beautiful home that handles a group perfectly . . . We enjoyed a long weekend at the "Story Book"....it was beautiful. We had 3 separate families with kids, so 6 adults and 6 children. This home worked out perfectly as each family essentially almost had their own floor with plenty of space for everyone. We were there for a ski weekend and while its a bit of a drive to Nubs and the Highlands it wasnt too bad. The space and beauty of the location were worth it. My only advice would be not to plan on getting much done if you need internet, the wifi was pretty much nonexistent. We are already looking at dates for next year and will be renting this house again when we do it!! . . . Guest Stay: February 2018

The house was very spacious for 10 adults and 3 children. The land around the property was beautiful and we enjoyed several small hikes. 30 minutes from Harbor Springs which had cute shops and a small yet fantastic beach. The kitchen was well stocked. We had plenty of linens and towels.
