The Cottages were beautiful and everyone at the hotel was very helpful. The weather was cold and snowy so we did not spend as much time outside as we had wanted to. Next time we hope to go later in the season.

Our stay exceeded my expectations. This is a beautiful hotel. We stayed at one of the cottages. Every thing was very clean. From the grounds to the rooms. The staff was great. I can't say enough about it. It was a great stay. Thanks

We were a little disappointed with the location. When I originally booked our stay, there was a picture of a beautiful cottage right on the bay. However, our cottage was a mile away on a golf course, still nice, but not what I was expecting. Even on this feedback form, you are showing a picture of the cottages at Bay Harbor, not the cottages at Crooked Tree golf course. We also had a bit of an ant problem at the cottage. They were in the Kitchen, living area and bathroom.

The cottages had plenty of room,clean, stocked well with air conditioning. Having use of Bay Harbor Inn amenities with pool, restaurants, spa and staff was added benefit. Beautiful scenery in lovely Northern MI Petoskey area.
