About

Welcome to Goldberry Woods! Please search our goldberrywoods site for more details/info on us--and to reserve directly. Located on 30 acres of beautiful wooded and open land, we are a family-run Bed & Breakfast and Organic MicroFarm in the heart of Harbor Country in Southwest Michigan. Less than a mile from the beaches and amazing sunsets on Lake Michigan, tucked peacefully in a secluded space along the banks of the Galien River, our location offers the best of both worlds and is the perfect place for you to get away. Our exceptional amenities and focus on homegrown food will make your visit with us a one-of-a-kind experience. Ride bikes to the beach (again, amazing sunsets!) or explore the back roads, borrow our canoes or kayaks, or step out onto our numerous hiking trails through the woods and along the river. If you are looking for pure relaxation, you may sleep in, enjoy the double Jacuzzis, gas fireplaces, and flat screen TV’s with DVD players, and free WiFi located in each B&B room. Each of our eight guest rooms and suites is decorated to showcase the hand crafted beds that were made by a local artisan using native Michigan trees. Though the Inn features vintage and unique décor and furniture, we will provide you with classic comfort including luxury linens and immaculate rooms. We also offer two private cottages as well, including a 4-br, 2.5-bath 2500 sq ft and a 3-br, 2-bath 1300 sq ft cottage. Each can sleep 10-12 people.

About the innkeepers

We've always talked about a B&B or a MicroFarm. We had lived in the busy Chicago suburbs but began spending every possible moment vacationing in Harbor Country. On a family vacation in 2011, we stumbled across the old River’s Edge B&B in Union Pier. The property was close to the beach with beautiful woods and enough pasture to create a biodiverse micro farm. It included two cottages and an Innkeeper’s House so that our young family would have a bit of private space. It was perfect!
