We’ve always booked Lakeside cottages This time we inadvertently booked Crooked Tree Golf Club cottage which is across the highway and very far away from the amenities of Bay Harbor. The pictures shown online during the booking process should show that these are miles away from the lake with no views of water whatsoever. It’s on a GOLF course. Not on Bay Harbor which is on the water.

We really didn’t know what to expect, never been to Bay Harbor, but, it was spectacular and a perfect “getaway”. We all enjoyed it and we had a great brunch at the Sagamore too!

We had a problem with our Kuerig on the first day(morning), but, management sent someone over with a “new” one immediately! We were very impressed! Thanksgiving Day!

Crooked Tree cottages (NON-lakeside, on golf course) are not walking distance to main hotel, its amenities (hot tub, spa, restaurants) and harder to coordinate shuttles from with hotel and casino.
Other Comments
The cottages need refurbishing - everything is original going back 20+ years. Our kitchen faucet was in need of repair, the bathroom floors were not clean - trash left in garbage and hair on floors.

The front desk was always energetic and eager to help. The restaurant was inviting and cozy with the best tasting Lamb lollipops ever!

The location of the cottages close to the lake was great and the amenities at the hotel were nice.
Other Comments
Upon checking into our lakeside cottage, the temperature was 59 degrees because the heat was not working. The resort did repair the heat by about 9:30pm night of arrival. Overall the cottage was not well stocked (1 cooking pot, not enough glassware, etc) and not as advertised. We found the condition to be in disrepair with broken or rotted decking (major hazard with kids), moss and mold, poorly repaired drywall, etc. The Inn at Bay Harbor has a fantastic location and nice amenities but we were disappointed the quality of the accommodations especially for a place describing itself as a AAA 4 Diamond property. More in line with a budget brand hotel.

Dirty towels left on balcony when we checked in. When asked if they would pick them up all of the balcony’s furniture was brought into the living room area chairs/ etc. unable to use inside spaces. Not acceptable four this class for inn. And COVID environment.
