Bay Harbor is a luxury community stretching along five miles of Little Traverse Bay and Lake Michigan. It features spectacular views, upscale boutique shopping and dining, world-class golf courses, and a deep-water marina. Bay Harbor has been called the crown jewel of northern Michigan for very good reason.
Begin by exploring the Village’s shopping district.

Walk the brick-paved streets and enjoy the breathtaking views while receiving the ultimate service. Everything from men’s and women’s clothing, to children’s toys, accessories for your boat, and more are available here. No matter what you are hungry for, or what mood you are in, you will find the dining exceptional at the Village at Bay Harbor. Five exceptional eateries will tempt your taste buds and satisfy your every craving.

The premiere attraction is the Bay Harbor Golf Club, which Golfweek has called "one of the most picturesque golf sites in the country," and Golf Digest has awarded a Five-Star rating. The Links, one of three Bay Harbor Championship quality courses, is inspired by the great seaside courses of Ireland. Bay Harbor overlooks Little Traverse Bay and Bay Harbor Lake. Numerous other towns are nearby, just waiting to be explored!

Petoskey is a charming lakeside community with unmatched beauty and charm. It is known for its breathtaking views, Victorian architecture, historic Gaslight Shopping District, and Michigan’s state stone, the Petoskey Stone. Speaking of Petoskey Stones, the nearby villages of Alanson and Walloon Lake Village are just, well, a stone’s throw away.
