We first found the Harbor Country area in 1994, after visiting friends who had a weekend house here. It didn’t take long for us to fall in love, buy a house of our own, and ultimately move our entire life here. Along the way we started several businesses, including Harbor Country Storage, and LePin Development, built the Vineyard Lofts in Harbert, and became involved with the community.
