COVID-19 Update – 4/24/2020

I hope this communication finds you in good health and staying safe in these troubling times.  With the current stay-at-home orders, the HCTA Board recently held a Board meeting, by phone, to discuss how these orders impact our owners.  I wanted to share the results of the meeting and how you may be affected. First, a few notes on our cleaning policies.  As you know Northern Michigan Escapes (NME), our property management company, does a great job of keeping our units clean and in working order.  They were able to handle our spring-cleaning process and get all the units ready …

Temporary Closure of Harbor Cove Timeshare Units – Effective March 31, 2020 due to COVID-19

I hope that at this difficult time for everyone, each of our owners and their families are healthy and safe.   It is unfortunate that I have to share with you that we must immediately suspend use of our six units for owner or renter occupancy, due to the Executive Order issued by Governor Whitmer last week.  The wonderful staff of NME, our management company, who provides the cleaning services for our units, are not considered to be essential service workers under the Executive Order. Therefore we do not have a viable way to maintain the units. We certainly want to follow the Governor’s …

As I sit here at Harbor Cove, enjoying our ski weekend, I can’t believe how little snow is on the ground and Little Traverse Bay is open water — that’s a first for me to see this time of year! Here are a few updates: The new recliners look great in the units and open the floor area up since they are a bit smaller than the old side-chairs. The new floors were installed on the upper floors for Units 14 & 19 in 2019. Units 8 and 11 …
