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

5 star hotel accommodations in a beautiful countryside setting.

From the comfortable beds (sleeping on a cloud!) to gourmet equipped kitchen, basic needs are met with a flourish! Include hot tub, cable TV entertainment options, and two sun-filled decks providing al fresco dining options, this Penthouse has it all. A short walk to private beach tops it off. We will be back!

Awesome weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay in Sawyer, and so much of that was due to the fact that this property is amazing! Every detail, from a personalized welcome, complimentary snacks, spa-quality towels and an incredible amount of space to hang out and enjoy ourselves has been thought of. The location is perfect for access to the beach, or for doing winery/brewery hopping. It was truly a pleasure to stay at the ‘penthouse’ and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a perfect space to enjoy a western Michigan getaway!

The property was nice, welcoming, and well kept. The personal touches were appreciated.

  • 4 of 5

The owners supplied beach towels, chairs, and a boogie board, as well as what you would expect from a hotel (soaps, shampoo, coffee, etc).

The beds were comfortable (the kids slept great), the only negatives we're that the hot tub acted up and we were not within walking distance of the beach.

Thank you both.

We absolutely loved this place! Traveling with my husband and 3 adult sons we had plenty of room and excellent amenities. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. There are some great restaurants near by and an excellent bakery, a must if you stay. It is off the beaten path, which is what we like. Close to everything but not too close. The decor was inviting and the bedding was wonderful. Wish we had more time to explore the area. The personal note on the window was special. Thanks for sharing your place with us and hope to visit again.

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.
