About Jan or Bob

Originally from Chicago, we moved here after vacationing here for many years. Harbert is a wonderful, sleepy little community along the shore of Lake Michigan. You can walk to the beach, sit there all day and read or go shopping & sipping in the many galleries, antique shops, restaurants, wineries, within a mile or so, and some within walking distance. We love the quiet beauty of this lush area with so much to offer outdoor enthusiasts as well as those looking for culture, art & fun! We are sure you will enjoy "Harbor Country" as much as we do!!

Why Jan or Bob chose Southwest Michigan

A unique mid century property with spacious vacation lofts was once the main retail center in Harbert, housing shops, restaurants, galleries, apartments & even a dance hall in the lower level. It has been restored to retain the character, yet offers an artistic look with original works of art and handcrafted furniture and convenient amenities. The location is conveniently located in the heart of Harbor Country, close to everything.

What makes this studio unique

The location is great! A few blocks to Lake Michigan beaches, walking distance to a few restaurants, galleries & shops, a short drive to everything Harbor Country has to offer! The studio loft is a cozy getaway that feels private and is a great alternative to a typical hotel room.

Wonderfully Unique Studio

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in a very spacious and clean studio apartment. Jan and Bob were great hosts, greeted us and were available if needed, but provided us with complete privacy. Great location for visiting beaches and wineries. We walked each morning to Luisa's Cafe for a wonderful breakfast. The crust-less quiche was the best quiche I have ever eaten. What makes this space so special is the little touches, owner, Bob,

is an artist, painted pictures and created some of the furniture. My husband and I appreciate the eclectic style as we dislike chain hotels with "all the same" bland decorations with no meaning behind them. We will definitely return if we revisit this area in the future. Thanks Jan and Bob

Vacation Review

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had the most wonderful vacation while staying at the Gallery Loft. It was very cozy and clean, and we were welcomed with a bottle of wine and brochures on local restaurants, hot spots, and fun activities. Jan and Bob could not have been any nicer or more welcoming. We would recommend staying here to anyone!!

Gallery loft was perfect for me. Located to many adjoining beach towns up the shoreline. I will definitely be back with my daughter.

Jan was Awesome. Met me upon my arrival and answered all questions regarding nearby towns and beaches, local events going on and restaurants go to.

Amazing Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit at the Gallery Loft. Everything was waiting for us when we arrived. We were immediately greeted with a warm and inviting atmosphere. It had all the amenities of home we were looking for. It was decorated very nicely with pleasing artwork and eclectic furniture. High speed internet was readily available. The location was easy to get to and close to everything. We had a wonderful stay. Would highly recommend.

Fine for a Weekend Getaway

  • 3 of 5

If you're looking for luxury, this is not it. However, if you're looking for a place to stay for a weekend getaway, this will do. It feels a little like indoor camping due to the very rustic nature of the building and decor. Almost everything is constructed from bits and pieces of things.

Some pros: it was quiet, conveniently located, and there was a bottle of wine waiting when we checked in. Very thoughtful!

Some cons: the shower barely fits one average-sized adult, there were tons of cobwebs everywhere, and the floor is pieced-together plywood so we always kept our shoes on.

Overall it was fine.

Owner's Response: We feel that negative comments were hypercritical and generally false. The room contains a new queensize bed, handcrafted furniture & fine art, a large full cable tv, a brand new sofa; dining area with handcrafted table & chairs; kitchen with island & bar stools, minifridge, microwave, coffeemaker with complimentary coffee, deck with outdoor furniture, full bath with standard new shower, toilet & new vanity sink, & area rugs thruout...hardly an outdoor camping experience! As to the allegation of cobwebs, that is totally erroneous. Prior to guest arrival, every surface in the loft is professionally cleaned & inspected for such things as "cobwebs".
