The Quiet Appeal of Harbor Springs
Updated: Monday, July 25, 2011

We're roughly at the midpoint of the summer season but there's still plenty of time to go out and make the most of the sultry weather in a place you've never been to.  Whether you're looking for some great Lake Michigan real estate to use as vacation property or simply wish to explore what's near one of the great lakes, we have an idea you may wish to look into.

What Harbor Springs, Michigan lacks in size it more than makes up for in its enormous appeal.  This cozy beach community along Lake Michigan has been a perennially popular vacation hotspot since the late 1800s, notable for its boating, golfing, skiing, boating and sailing activities.  It also has a number of small shops and restaurants located near the boardwalk that are well regarded and varied.

If you're interested in a piece of the Lake Michigan real estate offered in Harbor Springs, you'll be pleased to know that the community has weathered the effects of the housing downturn and recession relatively well.  Home values have actually climbed by fifteen percent year over year in this community, making it one of the best bets when you're looking for a nice place to live or stay for a while in Michigan.
