The Inn at Harbor Shores opened in May 2014 and is Southwest Michigan's most exciting venue to stay, play, retreat, and eat. Situated on a harbor just 1/4 mile to Lake Michigan, The Inn at Harbor Shores features a marina, waterfront restaurant called Plank's Tavern, dockside bar, full service spa, Rise & Vine- a coffee shop & wine bar, area shuttle, meeting & special event space, a line up of entertainment and events, 12 miles of walking trails, water sports rentals with launch, bicycle rental, beaches and shops within a 5 minute drive, and championship Jack Nicklaus golf course (hosting The KitchenAid Sr PGA Championship on even years 2012 through 2024). All guestrooms at The Inn feature a sliding glass door leading to a private balcony, undercounter refrigerator, Keurig coffee maker, all Michigan art, and more. Complimentary wi-fi, fitness center, outdoor pool, indoor pool, indoor/outdoor whirlpool, complimentary (seasonal) s'mores and drip coffee for guests, and well-lit parking round out the guest's experience. The Inn emulates an over-scaled lakeside cottage influenced by the classic coastal architecture of late 19th and early 20th century Lake Michigan hotels yet features all the conveniences of modern day.
