Spent a week on our sailboat at Bay Harbor Lake Marina. Best maintained marina we have stayed at. Super friendly and accommodating staff, they were more than willing to help with any of our requests. The town is very neat, a very different atmosphere then the rest of northern Michigan but only a couple minutes from Petoskey.

Lovely marina and helpful staff. We had a great time in Bay Harbor and really like your slip setup with the angled finger piers and having adjustable cleats on both sides of the boat. Plenty of room for a dinghy...grounds and location are just beautiful.
