Bay Harbor, MI, is nestled along five miles of Lake Michigan between Petoskey and Charlevoix – a luxury resort community that offers world-class golfing, dining, and shopping.
Before Bay Harbor became a luxury community, it was known for its mining and massive cement plant. For over 100 years, 1,200 acres of lakefront land was mined. In 1994 the cement plant was demolished, and in 1995 the barrier between Lake Michigan and the quarry was blown away, forming Bay Harbor Lake.
Developer David V. Johnson dreamed of opening a luxurious residential community and saw the vacant land as his opportunity. His dream came true, and the 1,200 acres of prime lakefront land is now home to 32 upscale neighborhoods.
Bay Harbor offers a deep-water marina, yacht club, champion golf courses, boutique shops, and some of the best fine dining in the area. The Great Lakes Center for the Arts is a world-class performing arts center open to all and located in the heart of Bay Harbor.
