  • The Perfect Getaway


    This property was so incredible. The house is beautiful, well equipt, comfortable and clean. This is the only VRBO I have rented that had everything I needed in the kitchen, bathrooms, etc. The property is stunning, the location is perfect. I can't wait to stay here again!

  • Cozy, clean and wonderful - We LOVED the Potato House!


    Our family of 8 gathered from all over the US to celebrate the holidays. The setting was picturesque, the house was unique and cozy, and the property manager was responsive and kind. If you are looking for a relaxing up north get away in a great location - our family highly recommends the Potato House!

  • Potato House


    It’s a difficult property for older people because of the stairs. It is bucolic setting with horses grazing. Charming decor.

    Our vacation to the Harbor Springs area was a perfect mix of sight seeing and relaxation. The "relaxation" was in abundance at The Potato House. We could adventure during the day then come "home" to a beautiful place on gorgeous property with ammenties to fit our needs. The horses nearby added to the calm and wonder for our daughters. I have 3 "girls" with 2 on the autism spectrum and I would find them engaging with the horses. Once home, I was told the horses were already missed.Such a unique and wonderful experience!Thank you,Sharyn Ficyk
