Loft in Benton Harbor
Romantic Gastro Loft Retreat for Two
Located above the area’s hottest new restaurant, this newly renovated 1BR/1BA urban loft features classic finishes - exposed brick, high ceilings, maple floors and quartz countertops. Cozy, comfortable quarters directly above the Houndstooth restaurant provide a fantastic opportunity to get a “taste” of the Benton Harbor Arts District. Muffled sounds of music and activity from the restaurant below are often present in the loft during evening hours. Some guests may find this objectionable.

Your guide to St. Joseph


Saint Joseph may be the best place on the so-called Michigan Riviera for a vacation, especially for families. Silver Beach and Lions Park Beach both promise soft sands and lifeguard-monitored swimming areas. Children will love riding the Silver Beach Carousel and running through the Whirlpool Compass Fountain. With its twin city across the river, Benton Harbor, St. Joseph is the largest town on the southwest coast of Lake Michigan. Adults can break away from the beach to tour local wineries and peruse the downtown boutiques. More active vacationers will find plenty of state parks and hiking trails nearby. If you’re spending the week, you may want to devote an afternoon to exploring the other resort towns along Red Arrow Highway, such as New Buffalo and Lakeside.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in St. Joseph

During summer, peak season at the Lake Michigan coast, the temperature will range between the 70s through the low 90s Fahrenheit from June through August. In late summer the humidity spikes and it rains frequently, so pack rain gear as well as sunblock and mosquito repellent. You’ll want to dress for cooler weather — think layers — in the spring (April-May) and fall (September-November). Western Michigan’s long winter starts in early December and lasts until March. Freezing temperatures are the norm, and the lake contributes extra-cold wind and snow to southern Michigan and northern Indiana.

Top things to do in St. Joseph

Silver Beach Amusement Park

Located just across a park from Silver Beach, this one-block area is a children’s wonderland: They can ride the hand-carved wooden horses on the Silver Beach Carousel, or spend hours running around the play spaces and interactive exhibits at the Curious Kids’ Museum and Discovery Zone.

Warren Dunes State Park

If you haven’t had enough beach time — or you’d like to wander along a bigger expanse of it — Warren Dunes offers three miles of shoreline, as well as hiking trails that snake through the wetlands. If you hear excited screaming, look up to see kids who have climbed to the top of a 250-foot sand dune flying down. Some even hang-glide from the top.


St. Joseph is located on the mouth of the St. Joseph River, and watercraft rentals are plenty and varied: Steer a kayak up the river, picnic on a pontoon, or take a speed boat for a spin out in the lake. You can also find jet skis, paddleboards, and even a paddleboat designed for big groups.
