Harbor Country Family Lodge is located directly east of the Galien River, about halfway between New Buffalo and Union Pier. It's nestled on a large, private property in the heart of Harbor Country, with easy access to the area's wineries, beaches, and shopping. With grand indoor and outdoor spaces, it's the ultimate Michigan destination for families and large groups of friends.
The spacious main level is bright and welcoming, with vaulted ceilings, skylights, numerous windows, comfortable cozy seating areas, and carefully appointed details. The large kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, brand new countertops, and an oversize prep island with barstool seating for four. Two dining rooms are available, offering plenty of space to enjoy meals together. The main dining room is just off the kitchen and seats up to 10 guests, while another dining table bordering the kitchen can seat up to six.
Guests have many areas for relaxation and entertainment, including a huge media room with a large sectional couch situated around a flatscreen TV, a magnificent sunroom with access to an outdoor patio, and a sunken seating area in front of a stunning, two-sided stone fireplace and flatscreen TV. There is also a sitting area just off the breezeway with a couch, a chair, and a chess table. In addition, guests have easy access to a laundry area with an additional full-size refrigerator for added cold storage.
Also on the main level, you'll find three bedrooms, each consisting of two rooms separated by a folding panel door for privacy. The main bedroom features a custom-built bed and a newly remodeled en suite bathroom. The connecting room is furnished with a day bed with a trundle. The second bedroom suite has an en suite bathroom, a charming bay window with a seat, and plenty of closet and drawer space. The third bedroom suite features a newly remodeled full bath, desk spaces, and plenty of closet space. In addition, there is a fourth full bathroom in the hallway that features double sinks, retro vanity lighting, and a separate toilet and shower room. The lower-level bunk room is designed specifically for the kids! It features a spacious area where kids can play that includes a huge, sectional couch situated in front of a flatscreen TV.
The outdoor areas are just as spacious as the indoors. The backyard patio, adjacent to the main dining room, provides seating with picnic tables, a private gas grill, and plenty of green space with mature trees and landscaping which lends itself to an excellent al-fresco dining experience. The beautiful stone patio off the sunroom is a perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee. The front and side yard include an above-ground heated pool surrounded by a stunning Trex deck and a lanai, a grass volleyball court, a large stone firepit, and a playhouse for the kids.
If guests are wanting to soak in the sun at the beach, it's a quick four-minute drive to a great Lake Michigan beach, either Townline Beach in Union Pier or New Buffalo's downtown public beach. In addition, the Galien River is right around the corner, where you'll find kayak and paddleboard rentals available. Added amenities include a geothermal heating and cooling system and the convenience of a friendly caretaker in a separate portion of the lodge who can help you with any questions or concerns during your stay. Whether you're looking to spend your days on the beach, enjoy some quality family time, or simply hang out in a spectacular home, Harbor Country Lodge has it all!
