The Village at Bay Harbor shops, water-front dining and specialty services all combine to create a truly magical and one-of-a-kind experience. Combined with a variety of seasonal festivals and events throughout the year, the charming Village provides endless opportunities for fun and enjoyment in Bay Harbor, not to mention the beautiful views of Lake Michigan and Little Traverse Bay. We are truly a unique resort community.
