cabins harbor country michigan - wheelchair friendly?

Hi, My daughter and I visited this area a couple of years ago and feel in love - want to rent a cabin with extended family (8 total). My sister is in a wheel chair so we would need a place that is handicapped friendly - i.e. bed and bath on lower floor with wide doors in bathroom. anyone have any suggestions - we would like to be close to a beach. thanks!

Where is Harbor Country? Are you talking about Harbor Springs? If so, you may want to repost with that in the title.

So when did southwest Michigan become known as Harbor Country?? I've lived in Michigan my whole life and completely missed that one. :-?

Have you tried VRBO.com yet?

"Harbor Country" is one of those C of C-type monikers that was hung on the area way back in the early- mid-80s.

jujube, you are going to have to find a realtor to help you if the cabin needs to be ADA complient.

Private rentals do not have to be in complience with ADA guidelines and owners usually only do so if a family member is in need.
