Bay Harbor Yacht Club is a private club located on Lake Michigan's Little Traverse Bay near Petoskey, Charlevoix and Harbor Springs. Bay Harbor Lake is a great destination for your water activities. The quiet inlet allows ample opportunity to swim, sail, paddleboard and kayak near our private beach.

Members and their guests enjoy innovative menus at our three dining locations, which offer both casual and fine dining in an indoor or outdoor environment. Member events include wine tastings, galas, family night dining, trivia night, sailing regattas and a charity fashion show. For those with fitness in mind, enjoy our newly renovated fitness center and workout equipment. Fitness activities for both adults and children run all summer long from tennis to stretching seminars.

Bay Harbor Yacht Club has the perfect location for your special event, whether it is a social or corporate gathering for 5 or 500 guests. Our promenade dock is a wonderful outdoor wedding venue with sparkling turquoise water and million dollar sunsets over Bay Harbor Lake.
