AThe Inn at Harbor Shores




800 Whitwam Drive

St. Joseph, Michigan 49085


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, Harbor View 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. Plank’s Tavern serves elevated American cuisine seven days a week.

Visiting us from the Lake? Guest boaters are welcome to broadside dockage on a first come, first serve basis whether stopping by for dinner on Plank’s Porch, a round of golf or an overnight stay. Seasonal slip holders receive the added benefit of a first class marina and access to many of The Inn’s amenities.

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, including the 9th floor rooftop terrace, offering gorgeous settings and beautiful views, the possibilities are endless.

Coming this summer: The Spa at Harbor Shores, offering a true full-service spa experience that is unique to the area with treatment rooms, a dedicated manicure and pedicure room, steam shower, infrared sauna and relaxation room.
