Spacious Family Villa Near Beaches w/ Private Pool, WiFi, Firepit & Central AC!

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!

The home was clean and fully stocked. Everything you need from a gas grill, pots and pans, dishwasher detergent, Dawn dish soap, laundry detergent. Everything you have at home this home has. The pool was great, Firepit plus play area for the grandkids. The home is designed so that each family could have some alone/quiet time when needed. Tons of things to do in the area and within an hours drive. Recommend Sand Pirate sandcastle building class, was a blast for a competitive family. I would recommend this property to anyone for a multi family gathering.

The house was very spacious with a well equipped kitchen, a huge laundry area with plenty of storage and a second refrigerator. The internet is almost useless, not spotty as listed by others. There is a large pool, however, even though I paid for it to be heated, I found out just before we were leaving to get to the home that the heater was not available and they were taking it off the listing.I was disappointed that some of the beds did not have a top sheet, and only the bed spread which didn’t look freshly cleaned,
Manager response:
Hello, Donna. Thank you for staying with us! We apologize for any disappointment you encountered and for any confusion regarding the pool heat. We have learned recently that increasing the heat from the current 84-degree temperature setting could damage the pool liner. The pool fee has been refunded in full for your stay. The local manager will be following up with housekeeping regarding the linen. We hope to have another chance to host you again, for a more enjoyable stay!

House is very well stocked, beach towels provided, great communication, fast response time to any problems that arose. Should be aware that the internet is very spotty, on and off, so need to keep that in mind. Also the area around has very few restaurants, most chain restaurants in Michigan City about 25 minutes. 2 families stayed comfortably and enjoyed the pool and volleyball net.

Lots to do on and near the property. Very spacious and neat. Lots of quiet nooks for alone time.Lake Michigan about 5 miles. Notre Dame is a 40 minute drive. We would come again!

HIGHLY recommended. I don`t think the pictures of this home indicate how special it is. It should be emphasized that it is absolutely huge and on an amazing amount of land.
