Bay Harbor Lake Marina is widely recognized as the Nautical Center of the Great Lakes and has been recognized as one of the Top 10 Ports in North America by Motor Boating Magazine. We have both seasonal and transient slips available and our professional staff looks forward to helping you enjoy the friendly Northern Michigan experience.
Bay Harbor Lake Marina is located in Bay Harbor Lake and adjoining the pristine waters of Lake Michigan, offering superior amenities and services to both seasonal and transient boaters. The marina has 111 slips for vessels up to 185' and draft up to 12'. The dock design includes floating docks with adjustable cleats. The marina has been a certified Michigan Clean Marina. The Village of Bay Harbor offers unique boutique shopping, dining, ships store, salon services, yacht dealers, lodging, and premier events steps away from the docks. Boaters can enjoy biking along 26 miles of Little Traverse Wheelway extending from Charlevoix to Harbor Springs. Also on site is a 27-hole Championship Golf Course with stunning views of Lake Michigan.
Extremely helpful staff. Beautiful, fully ammenetized setting with clean and well maintained boaters lounge. Great golf, restaurants and shopping. A wonderful stop on our trip.
The marina its self its so pretty I love the water there the town the shops are all wonderful the staff was not helpful at all did not help us dock our boat did not tell us what we could use did not show us where there were rentals was not helpful when we did try to ask questions. never knew if we could use the pool or where to rent bikes. I would go back because its so pretty but I would hope for better service.
Most people in the area and on the docks did not wear masks to protect from C -19. Otherwise the harbor master was great. Wish I understood where people with resources ($) are coming from at this time. There was a wedding on site and people from it walked up and down the docks with no masks. I will watch the reports for the next week plus to see if we must quarantine because of our book visit to Bay Harbor.
Always beautiful and clean.
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. One annoyance, though - our slip was occupied by another boat and we had to wait an hour for him to leave, therefore setting lines and fenders twice. Not the marina's fault that boater didn't check out on time, but perhaps there's a way to "encourage" boaters to adios if you know another boat is coming in. Realizing what it's like on the other side of things, we will always check out of our transient slips on time! I didn't use the facilities so I can't comment on those, but the grounds and location are just beautiful. Thank you!
Always enjoy Bay Harbor.
Great entry thru Marina lake, and clean grounds. We come back every year for several days visit! Will be back again next year
Wonderful marina and a great staff. Came in during a thunderstorm storm. Dockhands met us with smiling faces and the best part is they know how to tie knots!!! Thanks Bay Harbor for a great stay.
Extremely easy in and out, and polite staff. Will be back!
Great visit to Bay Harbor Marina! Staff and facilities were excellent!
Beautiful marina, great dock hands
Nice facility but staff a little disorganized. Very polite kids but harbormaster never around. We had our slip given away while we were out and had prepaid for the week. List our electrical but the boat that took our slip. Took all week to get a similar replacement And was given a small discount for our troubles but would have been happier if it had never happened. Problems coming in at 8:15 no one around and bad weather kept us from getting in earlier. But we survived with the help of other boaters.
Great location, friendly staff, pumpouts at the slip!
Helpful, friendly staff. Great infrastructure. Good proximity to the activities we were looking for (restaurants, golf, etc)
Very good marina, well protected and beautiful homes. Having only one restaurant is the only drawback.
Martin and his Harbor team are first rate!
Outstanding!!!!! We have stayed at more than 70 marinas in the last 4 months - - this is one of the top 3
Beautiful surroundings, very well protected, nice amenities and helpful staff. Only negative was live music playing from noon to 10 pm on weeknights outside the bar. Really spoiled the ambience imho
Very nice marina and helpful staff. Need to improve on cleaning the bathroom facilities more often, they were out of toilet paper and paper towels. Was quite noisy due to a wedding reception and a disagreement between a couple of boaters on the dock.
Great dock hands! Not so great wifi..under 2mbs
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 to get back to that feel.
Great people working the harbor
Great place and great staff... Thanks again for another great stay
Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Very nice area and easy access to other area Marinas, shopping, restaurants, etc. Beautiful area.
Quiet, nice dining at Knot just a Bar, pleasant live music, nice staff.
Its like they took a giant subdivision and placed it in the most beautiful part of Michigan. I guess its better than a quarry ,but I will never go there again.
We always love our stay in bay harbor! We've been coming since 1999, and every year we have a great time! One suggestion-have 1 or 2 grills available for transients. We stay there anywhere from 4-6 days each year. While we love Knot just a bar, the new grille restaurant, it would be great to be able to grill out and enjoy dinner on our boat. We are looking forward to our trip back next summer!
Bathrooms were filthy, clubhouse was below par, there was no informational map to the grounds (i.e. you are here......this store is located here,etc). Dockhands were great- polite, willing to do anything,etc. No bikes or vehicle to get around. They said some are coming but a $25/day charge. At the price you pay for a Pvt marina you would think they would offer equal or more than the municipal marinas in the area.
