Our Story & Photos

A new hotel, residences and Marina connecting Harbor Village to the water.

The Inn at Harbor Shores is a key addition to the 530-acre Harbor Shores community with its centerpiece Jack Nicklaus Signature public golf course. Located approximately 90 highway miles from Chicago, The Inn is a favorite vacation and business destination as well as an upscale meeting and special event venue.

The Inn emulates an over scaled lakeside cottage influenced by the classic coastal architecture of late 19th and early 20th century Lake Michigan hotels while embracing 21st century conveniences and amenities. The Inn features panoramic views of the Harbor Shores golf course, St. Joseph River, and Lake Michigan whether standing on the restaurant dining porch, Harborview Ballroom balcony or one of the 92 hotel room balconies.

The waterfront setting is connected to over 12 miles of walking trails leading through quiet natural settings, miles of nearby Lake Michigan beaches, kayak and canoe launches and the Harbor Shores Golf Club.



Paying homage to our historic roots, The Inn’s waterside restaurant owes its name to an original local resort, Plank’s Tavern, built in 1888 by John Oliver Plank, located on the bluff north of the St. Joseph River, near Tiscornia beach. Today, Plank’s Tavern is the name that's been given to The Inn's onsite restaurant with waterfront dining serving elevated American cuisine seven days a week. 

Sip, Sit, Savor...at Rise & Vine, The Inn's newest amenity offers coffee, wine tasting, snacks, carry out bottles of wine and beer, and retail items.  Rise & Vine, is accessible from inside the hotel and via exterior entrance from the parking lot.  

Visiting us from the Lake? Seasonal Marina slip holders receive the added benefit of a first class marina and access to many of The Inn’s amenities. Some transient Marina slips are available for guests and diners.  

Meeting and event planners will find accommodations to meet their highest expectations. The Inn offers a 5,000 square foot ballroom and adjacent break-out rooms in addition to an executive level conference room. The Inn also offers a truly one-of-a-kind experience for your special event. With several venues offering gorgeous settings and beautiful views, the possibilities are endless.
