Why We Love This Deal

From fall-foliage drives to skiing nearby hills to hunkering down in a tavern with a locally brewed beer, there are plenty of reasons to head to Northern Michigan over the coming months. Another good reason? Saving 45% through fall and winter on a private cottage stay.

What's Included

  • Oct. 20 - April 30 in a Three-Bedroom Crooked Tree Cottage
    • $155 per night ... check in Sunday-Thursday
    • $175 per night ... check in Friday-Saturday
  • Two- and three-bedroom Lakeside Cottages are also discounted, starting at $179
  • All stays receive a daily $25 resort gift card, usable toward ski lift tickets at Boyne resorts, food and drinks or spa treatments 

Travelzoo Tip:
Hotels closer to Michigan ski resorts in peak season can be priced upwards of $200 per night for just two guests, making these larger cottages for families a steal by comparison.

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Cottages come equipped with at least two full bathrooms, kitchen, washer and dryer, fireplace and patio
  • Great for larger groups, these cottages sit along the edge of the tree-lined fairways of Crooked Tree Golf Club
  • Near downtown Petoskey's historic Gaslight District, with lots of independent shops, galleries, restaurants and bars
  • Upgrade to a Lakeview cottage for a stay that's just steps from the water's edge on Little Traverse Bay


With plenty of outdoor activities including multiple nearby ski hills, plus a quaint small-town vibe, a trip to the Cottages at Bay Harbor is the perfect combination of relaxation and family fun. The adjacent hotel, Inn at Bay Harbor, offers a complimentary shuttle to neighboring towns, including nearby Petoskey. For day trips, guests are a 60- or 90-minutes' drive to two of Northern Michigan's most popular destinations, Traverse City and Mackinac Island.

Guests can choose from two- or three-bedroom lakeside cottages or a three-bedroom cottage that sits on the Crooked Tree Golf Club. All cottages come equipped with at least two full bathrooms, a full kitchen, washer and dryer, fireplace and a patio or balcony. With plenty of room to sprawl out, the cottages are an ideal option for extended stays. 

The daily resort fee includes more than just bottled water -- guests get high-speed Wi-Fi, access to washers and dryer machines, microwave popcorn and free snowshoe rental. Board games and DVDs are also available upon request at the reception desk.

The Cottages at Bay Harbor is a desired spot in winter because of its ideal location between two of Michigan's top ski destinations: Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain -- guests are about a 30-minute drive from each resort. We also recommend a drive up nearby Highway 119, also known as The Tunnel of Trees, “one of the state’s most iconic attractions” (, especially during fall-foliage season.

It needs deep cleaning as they seem to wipe bathroom & not scrub sinks & etc. More daily service other than brining in extra towels.
