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

Perfect Getaway

We spent a long weekend at the penthouse with our two boys! It was absolutely perfect! Every detail is thought out, the location is perfect and was in close proximity to everything we wanted to check out. We truly were able to relax and spend quality family time! We'll definitely be back!

Only one problem was the shower got cold after 2 showers.

Great property, great location, well appointed! Would definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Penthouse. The property is nice, the apartment came with everything you could imagine... games, movies, beach supplies, maps, and area attraction information. You can walk to the Lake or drive down to the beach. Great wineries, craft breweries, and restaurants nearby. Fantastic getaway and great hosts. We would definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area.

Wonderful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at the penthouse. This place is so beautifully appointed and stocked with every amenity. There were 4 of us ladies on a weekend getaway just looking for a place to relax. The condo is immaculate. Plush towels, soft sheets, comfortable beds and a kitchen stocked with everything to cook or "mix" that you could imagine - even a pizza stone. Joe & Kate have thought of everything. We were close to wineries, shopping, the beach and the casino. The little poster greeting us was such a cute touch. On the counter is a book with all sorts of suggestions for site seeing and menus from the restaurants in the area. The 2 decks were awesome. Anti-gravity chairs on the back deck to relax and the full dining set on the front deck for meals. Thank you for a great weekend. We will definitely be back!

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.
