About the property

4 bed, 3 bath, sleeps 10 Dogs Friendly!!

Discover all that Harbor Country has to offer within minutes of this comfortable ranch home located in the heart of beautiful Harbert, Michigan. Cozy enough for just the two of you, yet still spacious enough for your crazy family reunion, this home is ideal for beach lovers, hikers and bikers, beer nerds, antiquers, and anyone who just wants to leave it all behind and listen to the quiet.

It¹s only a ten minute walk through the woods before you have sun on your face and sand in your toes on one of Harbert¹s cleanest and most private beaches. Read a book, take a swim, turn off the smart phone, share a growler of Greenbush beer and watch the most spectacular sunsets before returning to all the creature comforts of this four bedroom, pet-friendly home.

Three full bathrooms (plus an outside shower) ensure that everyone enjoys some privacy, and four quiet, comfortable bedrooms are made for sleeping late and listening to the birds. Bask in the ambiance of a wood-burning fireplace for those cool evenings, or sit outside in the screened-in shelter and see if you can hear the owls while you¹re counting the stars.

The spacious greatroom is open and light, with a flatscreen TV and DVD player, and the backyard is big enough for any game you can imagine, including fetch with Fido. The finished basement includes two of the bedrooms so everyone will have their own space. A washer and dryer are down there too if you need to do laundry (but you¹re on vacation so we don¹t advise it!)

You¹ll want to fire up the grill for some hand-cut steaks from legendary Falatics Meat Market, or take a short drive in any direction to find one of Harbor Country¹s many outstanding restaurants. When you¹re stocking up on essentials at the Sawyer Market, don¹t miss the beer and food at Greenbush Brewery. Or head into Three Oaks for the farmer¹s market and the best old-fashioned you¹ll ever taste at the Journeyman Distillery. It¹s all just minutes away!

Plenty of beach chairs, coolers and umbrellas are available for your use.

Your beach home away from home awaits and we promise your week will go way too fast. Come and enjoy it!

Best spot for a Midwest getaway!

  • 5 of 5

For the past 6 years my family and I have stayed at this home. All seasons, all types of weather and it's always been perfect. The house is impeccable, the surroundings peaceful and quiet, tons of nature and fun activities. The kitchen is fully equipped but there are many local options that are terrific. The outdoor shower is AMAZING. I can't say enough to express how much this home has brought joy to my family. It's simply perfect.

Awesome house. Tons of space in and out. Great backyard and open interior that allowed everyone to have their own space. Close to shopping and a short walk to a beautiful private beach. The owner was friendly and responsive! Perfect week for kids and adults

Best ever!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family had a mini-reunion weekend at this vacation home. Eight adults, 3 children and we had plenty of room. You just can't beat that huge dining table, and 3 full baths! The house was spotless, beds were super comfy. The large yard was great for the kids, and the screened outdoor table was a real plus! Best of all is the short walk to one of Lake Michigan's most beautiful beaches. We loved this place and will definitely return!
