Why We Love This Hotel

  • These charming cottages are great for larger groups and sit lakeside or on the edge of the tree-lined fairways of Crooked Tree Golf Club
  • Cottages come equipped with at least two full bathrooms, kitchen, washer and dryer, fireplace and patio
  • Near downtown Petoskey's historic Gaslight District with lots of independent shops and galleries
  • Just steps from a private beach on Little Traverse Bay, just off Lake Michigan


With a private beach, outdoor activities, and a quaint small-town vibe, a trip to the Cottages at Bay Harbor is the perfect combination of relaxation and lakeside 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 60-90 minutes drive to Traverse City or Mackinac Island for day trips to two of Michigan's most popular destinations.

Guests can choose from a 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. Guests can also rent bicycles to cruise along the lake while the children enjoy all sorts of activities at the Inn Kids club. 

The daily resort fee includes more than just bottled water -- such as high-speed Wi-Fi, s'mores by the outdoor fire pits, fly-fishing instruction (based on availability) and golf balls to hit on the range at Crooked Tree Golf Club. Board games and DVDs are also available upon request at the reception desk.

We recommend you take a drive up nearby Highway 119, also known as The Tunnel of Trees, “one of the state’s most iconic attractions” (MyNorth). The 20-mile stretch overlooks Lake Michigan and features charming general stores and restaurants along the way, and it's especially beautiful during fall foliage season. The Cottages at Bay Harbor are also a desired spot in winter because of its ideal location between two popular ski destinations, Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain.
