Located right in the heart of all these special events is Bay Harbor, a coastal resort community that offers a great place to stay for a day, a week or a lifetime. No matter how long, you’ll wish it could be longer. Families often enjoy boating, swimming, and fishing off the shores of Lake Michigan or walking or biking along the Little Traverse Wheeleway. The Bay Harbor Golf Club has been called “The Pebble Beach of the Midwest” and the Bay Harbor Yacht Club is known as the social centerpiece of the entire community. Residents here enjoy life to its fullest.
The Village at Bay Harbor offers lots of options for unique shopping and delicious dining. If you’re here visiting, stay at one of the spectacular Bay Harbor hospitality venues: the Inn at Bay Harbor or the Bay Harbor Village Hotel. Both call for the perfect stay.
