The Inn at Bay Harbor

Mackinac Island, Michigan

Mackinac Island (pronounced MACK-in-naw) is an island and resort area in the state of Michigan. It is located in Lake Huron, between the state’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas.  In the late 19th century, Mackinac Island became a popular tourist attraction and summer colony. Many of the structures on the island have undergone extensive historical preservation and restoration. Because the island prohibits motor vehicles, you can’t drive here – at least, not all the way here. Part of the fun is getting here – whether it be by car, bike, ferry or flight.

The Inn at Bay Harbor is a place like no other. Built in the style of northern Michigan’s great turn-of-the-century lakeside inns, the Inn at Bay Harbor enchants with spectacular Lake Michigan and quarry views, providing exceptional service in the Petoskey, Michigan area. Newly renovated rooms and suites are ideal for a family getaway, romantic retreat, girlfriends trip, golf outing, ski vacation, or relaxing sanctuary from the everyday.

The resort also features lakeside dining at Vintage Chophouse Wine Bar, 45 holes of championship golf, The Spa at Inn at Bay Harbor, a private Lake Michigan shoreline, summer season swimming pool, kids activities, bicycles, shuttle service, and more. An outdoor hot tub is open year-round. The region offers much to explore from world-class performing arts, historic tours, charming communities, water recreations, to skiing. Wedding and meeting facilities are also available. (Source:
