About Joe Michalski

My wife and I have been vacationing and visiting friends here for years. When the opportunity came to buy a unit at The Vineyard Lofts we jumped at the chance. This is the perfect property in the perfect area.

What started out as a summer beach getaway has turned in a year round destination for us. We have taken up surfing on Lake Michigan in the late spring and fall, kayaking through the later fall months, watching the colors turn and taking part in the the various fall/harvest festivals, and snowshoeing and cross country skiing during the winter.

Joe Michalski purchased this condo in 2014

Lovely Getaway Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Joe and Kate's place is exactly how it looks. We had a lovely stay just getting out of the city for a bit. The directions were very clear and the apartment was easy to find! We enjoyed eating at Luisa's and visiting Greenbush Brewery!

There's plenty to do at the penthouse even if the weather isn't in your favor. Great TVs with Netflix, etc. already working. The private hot tub was great and literally steps out your bedroom door. The steam shower was a nice relaxer!

We are already looking forward to trying to come back in the Spring/Summer. Highly recommend!

Exceeded all hopes!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a beautiful, spacious home. As soon as my husband and I walked in, we were amazed at how much nicer everything looked in person - and the pictures make it look great! Joe and Kate had all of the information that we needed and tons of brochures and menus to make our stay super easy. We were able to find everything that we needed and we loved our stay - thank you for sharing you beautiful home!

Perfect Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

Returned for a third annual anniversary weekend. Joe and Kate are wonderful hosts. Very thoughtful and responsive. Love the hospitable touches from coffee and wine to delicious snacks. The home is spacious, private. The beds are super comfortable. Love the hot tub and the patio heater and fire pit. Beach chairs and an umbrella are available for guests' use. It is so great we want to keep it a secret!

This little unsuspecting corner of southwest Michigan has become a destination of choice for travelers who want to experience lifestyles that are seemingly frozen in time, when things were simple, less complicated. Here you will only find the inconvenience of small town life that is not panicked by the lack of technology or the instant gratification of cosmopolitan amenities.

Harbor Country offers a rich variety of choices for every mood and appetite. Enjoy the ambiance of a country kitchen, a neighborhood tavern, a rustic roadhouse or a casually elegant dining room. Choose from waterfront dining to quaint and quiet.

Discover art galleries and boutiques, farm markets and antiques stores, part of the lazy luxuries of Harbor Country. Find shops that are as unique and personal as the owners' taste and imagination. Everything from high fashion and casual clothing boutiques to home decor and decorating emporiums, gifts, mementos and keepsakes. If you can't find it in Harbor Country, you just haven't tried hard enough.

Harbor Country purveyors contribute greatly to Michigan's fine reputation in creating quality craft-beers, a variety of local wines and sophisticated distillations! Travel the beautiful country backroads or find your perch at one of the local tasting rooms and enjoy the craftsmanship of our award-winning wineries, breweries and distilleries. Find that special place that will always bring you back to Harbor Country time and time again.

Enjoy Southwest Michigan’s refreshing water, sugar-fine sand, tall dunes, quiet woodlands, rolling streams, varied wildlife and productive farms. We invite you to look for osprey while kayaking the Galien River in summer, pick pumpkins in the fall and cross-country ski through old growth forests in the winter.

Create wonderful family memories in our great outdoors! While it’s true that Mother Nature puts on the best show, every once in a while people need to push themselves to a harder edge. Whether stimulation at a local museum or an adrenaline rush go-karting or skeet shooting, Harbor Country affords a well-rounded offering of fun beyond the beaches and forests.
