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.
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.
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 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.
