"Seriously...am I really in Michigan?" That's what I asked myself upon arriving in New Buffalo after a 1.75 hour drive from downtown Chicago. New Buffalo is a Lake Michigan shoreline escape that literally transports you to the likes of a mini-New England or -Tidewater or -Annapolis. The beach is large and lined with white, soft sand. If I didn't know... More

We loved the location and enjoyed a lovely walk to the beach, strolled through town to the local ice cream stand and made it back to the hotel just in time to watch an impressive thunderstorm from the safety of our room.

I've stayed at several hotels and inns along Michigan's West coast and the Harbor Grand has probably been the best. The reason for this is the amenities they offer, their great customer service, and location, location, location! No other hotel in New Buffalo offers an unobstructed view of the Lake the way the Harbor Grand does. Having read some negative... More

The extras were included and made our stay special. Complimentary breakfast served in the morning was a hit with the kids. Loved the free DVDs available and beach chairs and towels! Would recommend for couples or families.

So taking that as a good sign...I gave them a call. It turned out that they had a "standard" room available. Check-in was easy and the... More

We stayed for an extended weekend, Saturday through Tuesday. Upon checking in, we were greeted by Terry. He was so friendly and welcoming that we knew we had found a gem! The entire length of our stay was fantastic from the breakfast in bed, to the cleanliness of the room, and the attention to detail from the staff! We had... More
