oh my goodness...I can't tell you how much I LOVED this hotel. First, my room was unlike most hotel rooms. It was a wonderful combination of beachy, shabby chic and elegance all rolled up into one. I had a full kitchen and a working gas fireplace. But ultimately is was the hotel grounds that made me never want to leave.... More

Having stayed in other Autograph properties, this hotel comes up way short in the areas of cleanliness and service. We arrived in Charlevoix early afternoon and called to inquire about early checkin and were told we could come out and get into our room. Upon arrival we were told room was not available so we opted for lunch in the... More

This place was great. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They have a shuttle service that will take you from the hotel to downtown for lunch or dinner free of charge. The outdoor pool and hot tub was nice.

My wife and I plan a trip to the Petoskey/Charlevoix area about this time each year. For the second time in a row (there won't be a third), we stayed at the Inn at Bay Harbor. We were shocked when we had to pay roughly double what we paid last year about this same time even though last year we... More

Two-day business meeting at the Inn. Fantastic setting, excellent friendliness by all staff at the property. Wifi worked well in all levels. Cleanliness was top of the line. A little pricey, but not out of character for the area. Rooms are comfortable and luxurious.

When you arrive at this hotel it is very impressive! The view of the bay is exceptional as is the lobby. The rooms are very nice and the linens are top notch. The breakfast buffet is about as good as it gets and the food in the restaurant is very very good, but both are expensive! $27 for a breakfast... More

My family of four loves this place. My kids are 6&9 and we never feel like the kids are excluded- more the opposite. We checked in and had just missed kids tie dye , the front gave the kids ice cream vouchers. The pool is large and the pool bar and service are excellent. The staff is incredible . Our... More
