Historic Potato House
The home sits on a working horse farm and is surrounded by pastures and resident horses. Welcome to our second home!
The historic Potato House on Brek-n-Ridge Farm is now being offered as a short-term or weekly rental for family overflow guests and Harbor Springs visitors. Offered beginning July 2017 and sporting new décor, this home is equipped with plenty of entertainment conveniences.
A landmark property, the Potato House will make your vacation dreams come true. Perfectly romantic as a couples get-a-way or for families and friends filling the four bedrooms.
The past owners remodeled the old potato storage barn into a home that is distinct in architecture and unique in personality. For your convenience, the home offers both gas and charcoal barbeques, a Turkish fire pit, multiple sets of table ware – casual and formal, cooking wares and entertainment supplies for hosting large and small parties.
The layout includes the use of the original silo of the Potato Barn with a high-topped table and chairs; the large dining area in the bottom of the barn seats 6-8 comfortably; a breakfast table; a reading nook for rainy days and a large living room with a river rock wood burning fireplace. Off the living room is a patio with BBQ grills, fire pit, lawn furniture, tables, chairs and chaises. Perfect for warm summer evenings and chilly winter nights. Easy indoor outdoor living.
Four bedrooms and two baths: Two king bed rooms with a large bathroom and shower/tub on the upper floor and two queen bed rooms with a bath and shower downstairs all provide guests with closets, chests of drawers and amenities. Guests can access the downstairs living areas, lower bedrooms and kitchen across a flat lawn entrance without using the stairs.
The Potato House – rural and convenient – sits just 2.5 miles north west of Harbor Springs on M-119 / South Lake Shore Drive at the entrance to the world-famous Tunnel of Trees.
