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.
