On the shores of the Galien River in Union Pier in southwest Michigan, and less than a mile from the sandy shores of Lake Michigan in the heart of Harbor Country, you’ll find Goldberry Woods, a Modern Farm Resort. The celebrated retreat features a state-of-the-art organic farm where guests cultivate a genuine connection to the land, heritage crops and foodie cuisine. Escape the city to an entirely fresh way of living and relaxing.

Options abound: explore the river by kayak or canoe, rent a cottage or cabin, relax by the heated pool, stargaze from the hot tub, bike to the beach for sunset, hike marked trails on the expansive 30-acre property. Sip wine or a fresh beer at one of the many local wineries and breweries, read a book by your fireplace, explore shops in nearby New Buffalo or Three Oaks, try your luck at the Four Winds Casino, pick organic produce, enjoy scratch breakfasts in the region’s top-rated B&B, sample amazing options at the local restaurants, or host a retreat, reunion or holiday. So many options!

Wander, Lust, Repeat


Escape to Harbor Country for a romantic getaway, on the water or under the stars. Sleep in, share a bottle (or two) and leave feeling closer than ever.  Suite or Cottage?

Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check. But that is not what I have found. I have found that it is the small things, everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Simple acts of kindness and love.
