                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Julie and Eric Haberichter are looking forward to welcoming you to Goldberry Woods. We are college sweethearts who both became engineers. We honeymooned at a B&B in Hawaii which was a working flower farm. After that experience, we have continued to stay at bed & breakfasts whenever we get the chance. We also vowed that someday we would become innkeepers ourselves. Julie spent eight years working in processed food plants. Soon after the birth of our first daughter, Julie decided to stay home and has spent ten years raising our three lovely girls. With Eric’s support, she began to build a home around the idea that homemade was best made. Inherited and found items became integrated into the family’s décor. A family garden supplied the basis of our from-scratch meals. She decided that she no longer wanted to return to a career in processed foods but that she was ready to share her hospitality and love of food with guests. The Haberichters lived in the busy Chicago suburbs but began spending every possible moment vacationing in Harbor Country. On a family vacation in 2011, we stumbled across the old River’s Edge B&B in Union Pier. The property was close to the beach with beautiful woods and enough pasture to create a biodiverse micro farm. It included two summer cottages and an Innkeeper’s House so that our young family would have a bit of private space. We are so in love with Harbor Country, and we are just dying to share it with you!

                  Why the Owner Chose Union Pier:
                  Goldberry Woods Cottage is located just one mile from Lake Michigan. However, our 28 secluded acres offer a bit of quiet amongst the bustle of Harbor Country's busy summers. An entire day can be spent just on our property, kayaking or canoeing in the Galien River or hiking our trails. Be a part of the journey as the property transforms into an organic MicroFarm, which grows a little bit of everything that Michigan has to offer. Fall and Winter are also a great time to visit!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Secluded, private, quite property with orchard, microfarm, and woods literally right out your door. Views of ravine and creek in back. Cottage offers wood-burning fireplace, jacuzzi bath, full kitchen with breakfast bar, laundry room, new large flat screen TV with Blu-ray/DVD player, and large children's play structure. Can also add breakfasts in inn for additional charge. Very close to fantastic restaurants, wineries, microbrews, an organic distillery, botanical gardens, art studios, antique shops, a large casino, outlet shopping, golf, and of course the beaches and dunes along Lake Michigan! We also off our Goldberry Woods inn as a vacation rental (full use of inn and kitchen, but no breakfasts) for your larger group (sleeps 16-24+ people). Call for details!
