About the Property
10 Bedroom, 9 Bath Country Inn (Sleeps 16-24+), 8 master suites w/ many extra
Come and stay in the heart of Harbor Country on 28 secluded acres of woods with hiking trails, river and stream, orchards, microfarm, and prairie less than one mile from the beaches of Lake Michigan!
The inn is normally ran as a bed & breakfast but we have opened our doors to make it available as a Vacation Rental for select dates/weeks in 2016 (in order to give ourselves some needed breaks during the year!). If you have a smaller group and do not require the entire inn, then we can likely accommodate you as part of our standard B&B (and we may allow for smaller groups to rent the inn, depending on season--call for details). Please see our website for details and availability. Start planning your 2016 retreat/reunion/holiday getaway!
The Goldberry Woods Inn includes over 6,500 sq ft of space to relax. Each of the 8 bedrooms/suites includes a private bath with double jacuzzi tub and shower, gas fireplace, large flat screen tv with streaming Blu-Ray player and Satellite TV, WiFi, and a hand-crafted queen bed made by a local artisan using native Michigan trees. Three of the rooms include additional, private sleeping areas/bedrooms (great for families, total of 11 different sleeping areas). Though the Inn features vintage and unique décor and furniture, we will provide you with classic comfort including luxury linens and immaculate rooms. The three first floor rooms are also handicap accessible.
Indoor amenities include a fully-stocked kitchen with all the pans and dishes you'll need; a dining room with wood-burning fireplace and seating for 24+ people; a laundry area; a large living room with board games, books, and a wood-burning stove; and a 4-season sun room with couches and daybeds, along with a selection of DVD's to watch. Sit by one of the windows and watch the birds at the feeders or relax with a game or puzzle by a roaring fire.
Outdoor amenities include numerous decks overlooking the gardens; fire pit with firewood; games including bags, badminton, bocce; bicycles to borrow to ride to the beach or explore the back roads; a large custom multi-level play set featuring climbing walls, swings, slide; a fruit orchard and microfarm; kayaks and canoes to float peacefully down our river; and 20+ acres of woods with hiking trails to explore (a truly beautiful location!).
We also have our 3 br, 2 bath Creekside Cottage (sleeps 6-10, 1300 sq ft) for rent as well. It includes a full kitchen, dining area for 10, laundry room, jacuzzi tub in master bath, living room with two futons and wood-burning fireplace with stone hearth, Flat screen TV with DVD, gas BBQ, and fire pit. It is located about 100 yards from the main inn. See VRBO Listing #421134 for details.

There is also a gas grill, fire pit, firewood, outdoor seating. Full access to Goldberry Woods main property is included and the pet-friendly cottage is located 50 yards from the main inn.

Combined, our 3 buildings include over 10,000 sq ft, 17 bedrooms, 13.5 baths, 3 kitchens/fire pits/BBQ's, tons of fireplaces, and can sleep up to 45 people. Please consider us for your reunions, corporate retreats, or holiday getaways!

Additional information about rental rates
- Cleaning Fee $300 + tax
- Tax Rate 6%
Additional rates will apply for holidays (New Year's, Mem Day, 4th July, Labor Day). As noted, we run the inn as a B&B except for when we rent as a Vacation Rental. If the dates are available then we can likely accommodate your group. Once someone reserves a room in the B&B then the entire inn will no longer be available for a Vacation Rental (we hope this makes sense!)--please call for details.
Please let us know if you would like to rent the inn for you holiday getaway (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc), as we can likely work with your schedule and availability. Kind thanks!

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Julie and Eric Haberichter are looking forward to welcoming you to Goldberry Woods. We are college sweethearts who both became engineers. We honeymooned at a B&B in Hawaii which was a working flower farm. After that experience, we have continued to stay at bed & breakfasts whenever we get the chance. We also vowed that someday we would become innkeepers ourselves. The Haberichters lived in the busy Chicago suburbs but began spending every possible moment vacationing in Harbor Country. On a family vacation in 2011, we stumbled across the old River’s Edge B&B in Union Pier. The property was close to the beach with beautiful woods and enough pasture to create a biodiverse micro farm. It included two cottages and an Innkeeper’s House so that our young family would have a bit of private space. We are so in love with Harbor Country, and we are just dying to share it with you! We are also quite proud that Goldberry Woods has become the top-rated inn in SW Michigan!
Why the Owner Chose Union Pier, MI, USA:
Goldberry Woods Cottage is located just one mile from Lake Michigan; however, our 28 secluded acres offer a bit of quiet amongst the bustle of Harbor Country's busy summers. An entire day can be spent just on our property, kayaking or canoeing in the Galien River or hiking our trails. Be a part of the journey as the property transforms into an organic MicroFarm, which grows a little bit of everything that Michigan has to offer. Fall and Winter are also a great time to visit!
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Secluded, private, quite property with orchard, microfarm, and woods literally right out your door. Everything you should need is available (and included in price). Very close to fantastic restaurants, wineries, microbrews, an organic distillery, botanical gardens, art studios, antique shops, a large casino, outlet shopping, golf, and of course the beaches and dunes along Lake Michigan!
