About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Welcome to our Harbor Country vacation home … 'Breeze' at the Vineyard Lofts.

Built out of what was the oldest winery in the state of Michigan, Breeze offers guests the ambiance of a bygone era with the latest in modern design. Spectacular and inspiring, the historic renovation features striking elevation changes and dramatic architectural design that creates exciting space that is as useful as it is beautiful.

A stay at Breeze beckons you to relax and enjoy! The private courtyard and patio, equipped with year-round, 4-person hot tub are great outdoor spaces to unwind. Inside, a mood of undeniable luxury prevails with the look and feel of a Nantucket seaside villa.

Breeze, a corner, ground-floor 1900 sq/ft loft, sleeps 5 to 6 adults in its three bedrooms; The master bedroom has 1 queen bed, bedroom two has 2 queen beds, and bedroom three has 2 twin beds. An oversized great room with 12ft. ceilings is a great place to hang out, relax, watch a movie or just be. Outside, enjoy a patio off the dining area, or your own private, fenced courtyard off the bedrooms. If cooking is your pleasure, the fully equipped sky-lit kitchen features stainless steel appliances, maple cabinets, a prep island with electric outlet and granite countertops, affording the chef in you the perfect environment for preparing the most gourmet meals.

Nestled in the heart of Harbor Country, Breeze at the Vineyard Lofts is within walking distance to a great dog park, fine dining restaurants and unique specialty shops. It’s a straight shot to the beach and is centrally located to all Harbor Country activities. Best of all it is just minutes from I-94 exit ramps.

About Rich

We love to travel; been all over the country. We consider ourselves to have a keen sense of what works. Also, we often travel with our dog.

Rich purchased this condo in 2006

Why Rich chose Sawyer

Harbert is one of those great destinations that once you find it, you hope stays a little bit secret. The restaurants, shops, beaches, culture and all around vibe are unmatched. The Lofts are nothing short of spectacular. Carved out of Michigan's oldest winery, the historic property is unlike anything we have ever experienced. Super design, quality and vision are all present.

What makes this condo unique

A straight shot to the beach, two restaurants and a bakery, galleries, salon/spa, garden center and antique shops, all steps from your door. Many wineries and breweries are a 5-minutes, or less, drive down country roads. A dog park is next door at Harbert Park which also has a playground, sand volleyball court, fishing pond, pavilion, and a baseball diamond. The Warren Dunes are less than 3 miles away. On site we have a fire pit, picnic pavilion, and a serene prairie with footpaths and relaxation areas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(transfered from old guestbook system)We just spent a week at the Spectacular loft "Breeze". Our family vacation consisted of 6 people and 3 four legged house members. It couldn't of been a better vacation. The loft had all the comforts we could ask for.

Before our vacation was even over family members were already asking "same time and place next year"?

On a scale of 1-10 this vacation spot rated a 20! Very impressed.

Great fall weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this condo! Harbert County is full of little gems. From the Swedish bakery just down the street, to the Whistle Stop market and coffee shop...so charming and lovely. There are wineries and breweries, vintage and antique shopping till you drop, and the close-by town of Three Oaks is adorable. Definitely make time for Journeymen Distillery! I know most people flock to Michigan in the summmer, but you are really missing out if you don't see it in the fall. The leaves are BREATHTAKING!! And it's so peaceful and quiet.

We loved having a pet friendly place to stay at that was open and spacious. We had everything we needed to cook and relax the whole weekend. The grounds are lovely and even in the cold weather it was great to go down to the beach that was close by. The only teeny complaint I have is the softness of the furniture and the beds. The living room furniture was small and kind of broken down, and the beds were a bit squishy. Like I said, it's a very small complaint compared to how wonderful our overall experience was. We just wished we had a little more comfortable seating space to veg out on. That's coming from our husbands who spent 10 hours a day watching football over the weekend, and anyone would be sore from sitting for that long!!

We can't wait to come back to the vineyard lofts and stay at this condo!! It was an overall wonderful weekend!!

girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

The place is large and spacious, centrally located around all the activities available in the area. I would say walking to the beach in the summer would be a long haul with beach stuff, but otherwise it is clean, beautiful and we totally enjoyed our stay

Beautiful Location True to its Pictures

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! My girlfriends and I booked this converted vineyard property for a weekend getaway. It was beautifully decorated and supplied with a great layout for hanging out, playing games, and relaxing. The bedrooms were spacious, and the bathrooms were clean and updated. The area was quiet (well not while we were there), and we enjoyed the enclosed patio and hot tub. The arrival was easy and instructions for a smooth check out were detailed in advance. There was plenty of area restaurant and activity information provided, making it easy for us to enjoy some time outside the house as well. The only minor issue was the train tracks nearby. Man do trains fly through MI!! A train whistle here and there was the only disturbance the entire time. I would totally recommend this rental for your next stay in the Harbert area.
