Just Dune It! City slickers got the itch to get out of town? Just an hour-and-a-half drive from Chicago, Michigan's Harbor County country is a treasure trove of shabby chic shops, tree-shaded paths, white sand beaches and heavenly restaurants. Just a short walk to soak up the sunshine or watch the sunset at Stop 38 beach. This cottage is a classic brown log cottage in the woods.Love the winters here just as much as the summers. Very private and tucked away on a one-block lane in Michiana. Field stone fireplace, hardwood floors, two screened porches, fabulous cook's kitchen fully stocked (except the food). Master bedroom with full bath, bunk room with two bunk beds and one twin. Open loft with queen futon. Extra sleeping on sofa and futon in front of fireplace. It does not get better than breakfast, lunch or dinner on the back porch over looking a peaceful landscaped yard. After dinner start a campfire in the fire pit and make smores! Need more action? Head to New Buffalo, Three Oaks, Union Pier, and Lakeside to enjoy many casual or fine savory restaurants.

Near New Buffalo Michigan or Michigan City, IN Visit: Let’s be honest: You’re not headed to Sonoma. Let’s be even more honest: Does it matter? When all you need are some vineyard vistas and a few good pours, a jaunt around the lake will land you in the breezy bluff-top beach town of St. Joseph at the center of the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail. A boon of the fruit belt that stretches across southwest Michigan, the route encompasses 21 wineries, from ­generations-old family vineyards to walkable in-town tasting rooms staffed by the winemakers themselves. Allow us to make a few suggestions. 1. Lazy Ballerina Winery 2. White Pine Winery 3. Baroda Founders Wine Cellar Stroll a block of downtown St. Joe’s State Street and clink glasses in these three tasting rooms. At Baroda Founders, the viticulturist winemaker might detail the science behind lake-effect grape growing while he pours you an aromatic Riesling. 4. 12 Corners Vineyard Go for the vibrant, semisweet Beach Cottage Vacation White; stay for the live music and expansive views of Michigan’s fruit-growing farmland. 5. Contessa Wine Cellars The exquisite, well-balanced Chardonnay Reserve aged in French oak barrels should be first on your list at this Italian villa–esque vineyard run by a third-­generation winemaker who’s been working Michigan vines since he was 12. 6. Karma Vista Vineyards High on a hill with a panoramic view, drink fruit-forward wines with playful names like Stone Temple Pinot and Gunzan Rosé from this 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition bronze medalist. (Psst, that’s playing with the big boys out west.) 7. Domaine Berrien Cellars Try the elegant, currant-popping Cabernet Franc—the grapes grow nicely in the region’s sandy soil—at this boutique winery known for its dry reds. 8. Round Barn Winery Need a snack to go with Round Barn’s spicy, fruity Sauvignon Blanc? Mosey over to the onsite food truck for some gourmet mac and cheese and mellow out to live music on the bucolic grounds—with, yes, a giant Amish-built round barn. 9. Tabor Hill Winery & Restaurant You’re drinking: sparkling Grand Mark in the tasting room. You’re eating: Duck Cherry Char Siu at a table with a view over the rolling vineyards—some of the region’s oldest. You’re thinking: I could get used to this. WHILE YOU’RE THERE:Try your hand—er, legs—at sandboarding in nearby Warren Dunes State Park with a lesson ($75) from Third Coast Surf Shop.
