Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We love this area and started coming here to our own vacation home in 1990. It is an easy ride from Chicago where we lived. We are are now full time residents and enjoy the complete tranquility of the lush, wooded area and beautiful beachfront. My husband is a former attorney turned artist & his wonderful furniture designs & art embellish our lofts.

Why the Owner Chose Harbert, MI, USA:
It is so conveniently located in the center of "Harbor Country" & is accessible to all the communities that are part of Harbor Country. Our lofts are very roomy with vaulted ceilings as they were originally apartments and stores that have been converted to studio lofts with an open concept. They are designed to be comfortable & appealing with plenty of room for 2.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This building is quite unique from other vacation properties in that it offers convenience & privacy and has a contemporary loft vibe with art gallery quality decor.
