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...

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...

We booked this hotel the day we arrived. We went up north not really having a place in mind. We prefer Marriott properties when we travel . The Inn at Bay Harbor, An Autograph Collection Hotel was listed on Marriott.com They were having a promotion for $177 a night and that included a full comp. breakfast. The rooms were very...

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...

Geography is a real asset here. Gorgeous grounds in a lovely setting on Little Traverse Bay. Nice facilities. Well appointed rooms. Charming staff. Pretty patio with gorgeous sunsets. Beach has fun red stripe cabanas. Food could be better. Worth the $$$.

Beautiful lakefront rooms with small lanais and stunning views from the living area and master. Wonderful kitchenettes. We chose this type of room to entertain some visiting friends. We stayed almost a week and it truly is a luxury resort and popular wedding venue. But I might suggest that September be a better month to visit- after the kids are...

Beautiful Resort and great location. Our 3 bedroom cottage's kitchen had one single egg size (4") fry pan, no lid. Not exactly the "fully equipped" kitchen we had hoped to make breakfast for 6. Also dining table in awkward space where door opened into, had only 4 chairs. There were no chairs even in the 3 bedrooms we could carry...

“Choose a lake view room. They are constantly developing, so a resort view room may mean a construction view room.”
