Our Own Backyard

Goldberry Woods is a playground for inquiring minds. Steps from the inn and cottages, there are 30 acres of unspoiled nature to explore, our lovingly cultivated microfarm and the Galien River’s meandering charms. Hike, bike, paddle, kayak, bird watch, bee watch and let your imagination wander. On foot or by water, guests connect with nature and escape to the heart of Harbor Country. There’s so much to explore in our backyard.

Down the Road

A short drive from the property, lakefront recreation and a thriving commercial community await. Boutiques, outdoor adventure outfitters, breweries, coffee shops and more lend color and texture to the Goldberry Woods experience. Our knowledgeable staff help guests experience Lake Michigan like a true insider.


From our 30 acres of pristine woods to miles of nearby paths and trails, there’s much to explore on foot near the Farm. Pack a lunch, throw on your favorite hiking boots and forge your path, at your own pace. Beginners and advanced hikers alike can enjoy stunning nature in peace and tranquility.

Our stretch of the Galien River is a basecamp for adventure. Choose from a selection of small vessels (kayaks, a double kayak, a double canoe, stand-up paddle boards) and go with the flow. Whether guests enjoy leisurely glides or serious exercise, the Landing is where it all begins.



Goldberry Woods Farm is uniquely situated between Lake Michigan and the Galien River: Two ways to enjoy beautiful weather on the water. Guests can schedule a stand-up paddleboarding excursion, a kayak adventure (with our own vessels onsite) or simply enjoy the beach. When the air is warm and the sun is high, nothing beats time on the water.


Maker's Trail

If you’re looking for the perfect pour, craft beers, local wine, and organic distilleries are abundant in Harbor Country. Go behind-the-scenes at local breweries to see where the foamy magic happens. In taprooms and on assembly lines, beer-making geniuses call the Lake Michigan coast home. Plan your route to savor the rich, hoppy, ingenious flavor of our favorite local export.

Our backyard is home to Harbor Country’s best vineyards and wineries, with more than 15 vinters and tasting rooms within 30 minutes of Goldberry Woods. Wine aficionados and amateur imbibers alike can learn about the region’s winemaking tradition, taste incredible bouquets and hone their tasting skills with culinary pairings. A case of local wine makes the best souvenir!


Shopping and Entertainment

Harbor Country is home to a multitude of shopping and entertainment options. Explore the miles of antique and salvage shops along Red Arrow Highway, listen to live music or comedy at the Acorn Theater, try your luck at the sprawling Four Winds Casino, visit the boutiques and art galleries sprinkled throughout the area, enjoy the local cuisine at dozens of different restaurants, and finish it all off with a relaxing time at the beach watching one of our amazing sunsets over Lake Michigan.
