Built in 1878, our lakeside Bay View cottage sits atop a bluff overlooking the crystal clear water of Lake Michigan's Little Traverse Bay. You will have a front row seat to beautiful sunrises and breath taking sunsets.

A spectacular setting in Northern Michigan of unmatched, natural beauty and charm. The area, (just north of Petoskey), provides countless opportunities for summertime fun and come Autumn, awe inspiring fall colors.

Bay View was founded in 1875 and is a National Historic Landmark Community. It is home to nearly 450 cottages situated on 337 terraced acres. Every summer Bay View offers outstanding musical programs, plays, lectures featuring nationally known speakers, and educational seminars which are all open to the public.

Bay View also boasts a wonderful recreational program for kids, ages 3 to 15. (camp and water sports including swimming and sailing instruction)

Wonderful location, charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been staying at this cottage every summer for the last eight years. The location is fantastic--sunsets each night are an event witnessed from the porch. You can do as much or as little as you like with Bayview events. There's a small swimming area nearby, and Petoskey State Park is a short drive away--or a nice walk. The house is roomy and well maintained. The furnishings are not super fancy, but they are comfortable and well-kept. We always feel at home there. No A/C, but there are plenty of fans--and we have rarely needed to use them--there's usually a breeze off the late. The owners are helpful and friendly. Two to three parking spaces are dedicated to this property, so you don't have to worry about parking--which is very tight in Bay View. The WiFi is excellent. We are completely satisfied, and that's what keeps us coming back every year.
