Harbor Country comprises the first 15 miles of shoreline along southwest Michigan. Here, the waves of Lake Michigan lap gently and the vistas are so wide that it’s easy to think that you’re standing on the ocean shores. Our Harbert vacation rentals are on the northern end of Harbor Country, about five miles from Union Pier.
Harbert is a unique little town with a fun history. It was founded as a railroad town, then became the home of orchards and vineyards, and even a pickle factory. Most notably, the famous poet and author Carl Sandburg lived in Harbert for 20 years. He even wrote his Pulitzer Prize winning The War Years while living in the town.
Today, our Harbert house rentals are the perfect place to visit for a quiet lakeside getaway. The town is home to many antique stores, art galleries, and locally-owned restaurants. Pop into Cafe Gulistan for Lebanese dishes like falafel, kebabs, and baklava. If it’s Italian you crave, Capozio’s offers homemade pizza and pasta dishes.
Spend an afternoon walking the beach or exploring the dunes at Grand Mere State Park, just 15 minutes from our Harbert vacation rentals. And no trip to Harbor Country would be complete without a healthy sampling of the wineries in nearby Union Pier—you are in the heart of Michigan’s wine country, after all.
