Whether you’re looking for a new vacation spot, the ideal setting for a destination wedding, perhaps a location for your new business, or you’re searching for the perfect place to put down your roots, here are 5 reasons why you should drop everything and move to Bay Harbor.

1. A Destination for All Seasons

Summertime paints the story: the sparkling blue waters of Lake Michigan, the emerald green of fields and fairways, the shimmering crimson of million dollar sunsets. Yet true connoisseurs of the area know it offers a changing and amazing palette of scenery and adventure throughout the year. And each season is beckoning for you to create one-of-a-kind memories no matter what time of year.

2. The Food

This is a foodie heaven and the dining options are as varied as the guests. In Bay Harbor, we’re right in the middle of the Little Traverse Bay Triangle where three delightful water-front villages of Charlevoix, Petoskey, Harbor Springs and more offer a wide variety of dining experiences. Check out a full list of local favorites here.

3. The Entertainment

Endless events and arts & entertainment from galleries to museums, performing arts centers to outdoor concert series, there are many options here for the culturally minded. The new Great Lakes Center for the Arts, a 500-seat landmark facility is currently under construction and will be opening early next year. Check out our calendar of events here.

4. The Marina

There is something special about Bay Harbor. Boaters at the marina are attracted by more than the first-class amenities the marina offers – they enjoy being a part of the community. Shared cookouts, dock parties, and day trips make the marina feel more like a neighborhood. Named one of the “Top Ten Ports in North America” by Motor Boating Magazine, and one of “10 Best Family-Boating Resorts” by Boating Life, Bay Harbor Lake Marina is also a certified Michigan Clean Marina. With the expertly trained staff to provide docking assistance and waterside concierge services, boaters can enjoy a stay either seasonally or as a transient. Learn more.

5. Golf

The Bay Harbor Golf Club offers three distinct 27-hole championship courses stretched along miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. Each individual course was designed by the well-renowned golfer, Arthur Hills and set amongst the most incredible topography in northern Michigan. For tee times and more information, click here.
