Beware, this is a wedding reception machine. Between the hotel and the water is a large permanent tent which hosts a wedding just about every weekend in the summer. As we're writing this review in a very expensive room facing the water on the fourth floor, far away from the tent, the room has been pounding and shaking from the... More

This hotel looks like the "Del Coronado" in San Diego and the service is as good or better! An all suite hotel with all the amenities, great for a night or a week. The breakfast was excellent, I had eggs Benedict one day and blueberry pancakes the other. Both were perfect. Great location but a little pricey. However, worth the... More

I also had a room with a "resort view", first time since I started going there back in 2007. Actually, I didn't mind the view at all, the condos are on a cliff and go on and on which I found rather interesting. I had the morning sun on my balcony which was very nice. I was here for a... More

We had made reservations at another place and when we arrived we just couldn't stay. It was not the caliber of hotel we like. But...From the time we arrived at Inn at Bay Harbor we were impressed. The entire staff was accommodating. Ialthough it was APRIL and the lake was still frozen it looked like a postcard frozen in time.... More

The Inn at Bay Harbor is located in the Bay Harbor development on Lake Michigan. It's not a real resort, just a big property on the lake in a big development. The best part of our stay was the staff. They were friendly, helpful and responsive to our requests. There is free valet parking and a free shuttle to downtown... More

During check out a thoughtful staff person asked if we'd like bottled water for our drive. The server for dinner was delightful and food delicious. The server for breakfast Friday morning was professional, helpful and friendly and the meal was great. Friday morning the woman at the front desk took time and care in helping us plan our day. The...

We love the Inn at Bay Harbor. This is the first time we've stayed in the winter and the service is just as helpful and delightful as in the summer months. The suites and lake view rooms are worth the upgrade. Excellent property with exceptional service and the best hotel breakfast.

We stayed in the cottages overlooking lake Michigan. The Ski, Stay and Breakfast package was a deal. We did the trip with 4 couples and everyone was extremely satisfied. This is our second time doing this trip and were not disappointed. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We look forward to coming back next year.

Stayed in the cottages, very nice. Staff was great ( except desk clerk in the middle of the night was totally incompetent.) we skied at Boyne Mountain and Boyne Highlands, perfect location as The Inn is right in between both. Package deal with skiing, salon and breakfast (fantastic!) was a great deal. Highly recommended....

First, the staff is first rate. We have stayed at some of the best hotels in the U.S. and Europe. The staff at the Inn at Bay Harbor are simply the best! They go out of their way to assist in every way. The grounds are perfectly manicured. The view of Lake Michigan is breathtaking. The rooms are updated in... More
