STUNNING COUNTRY RETREAT FOR COUPLE OR FAMILY

Harbert Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 10-14, Pool, 2 Miles From Lake Michigan

This is an extraordinary home, designed by noted chicago architect larry booth, and recently renovated in 2012. It features a pool with built-in grill and alfresco dining, hammock, trampoline, woods, ravines, prairie with wilflowers. There are 57 acres to explore, and no one to bother you. The main house sleeps 2 in a king bed, and up to 4 kids in the sleeping loft. There is also a toilet, large bath, and large shower. There is a 2 story guest house that can sleep 4, with 2 separate entrances for each bedroom. On one floor is a toilet, sink and shower, and on the other a toilet and sink. There is a second guest house, behind the main house, that sleeps 4, in 2 queen beds. There is a shower and sink, but no toilet. Additionally, there is a full outdoor shower by the pool that we use as a full-service shower. Find yourself by the pool during the day, grilling at night, having a glass of wine in the screened porch while listening to the frogs in the lotus pond. There is an outdoor fire pit with gas for easy on. This home is fabulous, and will be sure to make you happy you came to harbor country! This home is also available for events such as weddings. Please contact owner for more information.

PLEASE NOTE: We do NOT offer less than 7 day stays in the summer as this is high season. Thank you.

Also, if I send you a quote to book the property and you do not book right away, there is a chance that someone else may book it, as I check rental requests once a week and email quotes out at that time to any interested parties. Essentially, first come first serve! Thank you!

This is our vacation home, and we live in Chicago. With 7 children between us, we unfortunately do not get to use it as much as we would like to, so we have decided to allow others to use it in our absence! This home was lovingly restored by us: We put in the pool and outdoor deck and dining areas, redid the landscaping, remodeled the interiors, converted the external shed into an office and sleeping loft. We love our home, and hope that you do too!

Allison Schatz purchased this farmhouse in 2011

Living in Chicago, this is the area where many Chicagoans find themselves coming to in the summers, as it is only an hour away. You are close to home, but feel a world apart. It has the best of everything: land, close to the beach, pool, woods, wildlife, room for the kids to run around and explore. It is just enchanting...

PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this property! We had great weather and spent a lot of time relaxing in the fantastic pool area. The pictures don't do the grounds justice. The interior of the main house is really nice and comfortably stylish. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils and we cooked the entire week. Great area farmers market so we were able to obtain great produce for our stay. The property is listed for sale right now, so we hope that it is available for us to rent next year. We love it!

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL HOUSE(S) AND PROPERTY....

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a weekend stay at this beautiful house with some friends. We golfed and gambled in New Buffalo and had a wonderful time. The house and property is absolutely gorgeous, the pictures do not do it justice. The large yards are great to wander around and the deck with Pool and hot tub are great. Everything has a very modern look to it. Allison was a pleasure to work with and we are already planning another visit to this stunning retreat!

FANTASTIC BIRTHDAY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for the weekend with my family, amazing cottage feel! All the best appliances, furnishings, entertainment, and fun for everyone! Main house is intimate as listed, one guest house with 2 queens and no bathrooms, other guest house is two story with 1.5 baths. I really like that there is room for everyone to come together yet space for separate activities as well. I would definitely recommend this rental and plan to return for years to come!!
