This is the place to meet with old friends, and new ones, dine, play, enjoy. Looking for lodging? We have everything from quaint bed and breakfasts to complete resorts. Lodging to fit your wants!

Fall Fun in Harbor Springs

But summer isn’t the only season in Harbor Springs. Fall is the perfect time to view the beautiful fall colors and drive the Tunnel of Trees to Cross Village. The water is still warm for swimming and water activities and the golf courses are glorious in fall color. And with the many events such as Taste of Harbor Springs and locations like the Great Lakes Glass Pumpkin Patch- there is much to do.


Winter is a Currier and Ives image complete with snowmobiling, downhill, and cross country skiing and snowshoeing and more. Events? Absolutely including the February’s Ice Fest.


Spring is a glorious image of wild trillium blooming in the woods and morel mushrooms to find. Zoo-de-Mack brings thousands of people to Harbor Springs to bike from Boyne Highlands to Mackinac Island.
