Lake Marina Expansion Adds 35 Slips

The much-anticipated dock expansion at the Bay Harbor Lake Marina was completed in summer of 2022. This is the first addition in the 26 years that the marina has been operating.

The expansion will be on Pier B, adding 35 new slips that range from 40’ to 120’, and are currently available for reservations. There is quite a demand in the boating industry for seasonal slips, and Bay Harbor has the luxury of having a protected harbor that leads directly into Little Traverse Bay. The marina only offers floating docks, that greatly  accommodate the ever-changing water levels in Little Traverse Bay and Bay Harbor Lake.

The docks are all just steps to Bay Harbor’s Downtown Village which has an eclectic collection of restaurants, boutiques, spirits and wine tasting venues, specialty services, premier events and the Great Lakes Center for the Arts, a world-class performing arts center. In 2023, the Village is completely leased and will be bustling with activity all season long.

Amenities for boaters include a boater’s lounge, restrooms, showers, Wi-Fi, electrical and water hook-up, dockside sanitary pump out and a dedicated staff of dock-hands to assist you on the docks. Boat cleaning services, fishing charters and bicycles for boaters use are also available.

Village Suites Bay Harbor and Bay Harbor Vacation Homes are within walking distance from the docks if needed for special lodging accommodations.
