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!

I love to stay here because I always feel special by the treatment we receive. The staff is very friendly and attentive, however it is pretty lean in December. The rooms are very nice, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The view of Lake Michigan is beautiful from the room balcony. My only regret is that I as a platinum elite... More

We stay here both in the winter and summer. A fantastic experience year round. Beautiful views, especially sunset on the bay. Close to several skiing resorts and winery's. We always come back to familiar, smiling faces. The spa is to die for here as well. Restaurants are top notch. Rooms are wonderful- stay in a suite, it is worth it,... More

This hotel is high - class. Staff is attentive, gym is nice, and valet is available. The restaurant in the lobby is very good and the smaller gift shop has everything you might need, you don't ever have to leave. You can rent bikes in the summer, and they give you a $20 voucher to play at a local casino.... More

The staff at all levels from desk to bar to door are all very professional and welcoming. The hotel is well maintained and clean. This is a Renaissance property with typical great beds. Here are the down sides: First they charge you a "resort fee" on top of the room charge yet this is not a resort. There is nothing... More

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