New and very improved after a year-long remodel, The Harbor Grand is a boutique hotel unlike anything else found on the Michigan lakeshore. An artful, waterfront destination for low-key luxury and easy, restorative getaways.

Rooms offer water views, fireplaces, and spa-inspired soaking tubs, with design that feels warm, modern, and handcrafted—all the while maintaining a respectful nod to the Prairie School origins of the building. Prefer extra space to lounge? Choose a suite with a separate living room and wet bar anchored by a deep, inviting sofa.

While the net effect may leave you content to cozy up inside, The Harbor Grand’s location makes it just as easy to explore. Minutes on foot to downtown shops, restaurants, and the beach, this is carefree vacation time. Even car-free, if you like. Wine tours offer front-door pickup, and Amtrak stops a half block down the street.

Amenities are thoughtful and characteristic of the highly personal service Harbor Grand has come to be known for. Guests enjoy complimentary breakfast in bed, a serene indoor pool, and Terrace Room, a sexy waterfront restaurant featuring the region’s most lovely outdoor dining. And as this is the lakeshore, bikes, beach chairs, s’mores, and a Ben & Jerry’s hotline are part of the package, too. From first welcome to (reluctant) check-out, the folks here are delightfully at your service.

Local Tip: In season, sailing charters, fishing charters, powerboat and jet ski rentals are all available minutes away on the marina. And if you’re a massage fan, mark your calendar. Harbor Grand debuts a waterfront spa in Spring 2022.

In the spirit of transparency, note that our founder is a member of the family that owns and operates Harbor Grand.
