It's no coincidence that the feeling surrounding Bay Harbor's is one of a more romantic era, when transportation was limited to horses, carriages, trains and steamships. In 1874, a group of visionary entrepreneurs recognized the beauty of the Little Traverse Bay coastline and erected the area's first hotel.

With room for 150 guests, that hotel was soon turning prospective guests away. Travelers eager to experience the hotel's "million dollar sunset" arrived with anticipation, and left bursting to share the story of their stay.

Word traveled quickly, and tourists continued to press the lone hotel's capacity. Soon, entrepreneurs saw opportunity. A new dock was constructed to welcome steamers to the Petoskey area, bringing a new wave of people and supplies. Recognizing the need for raw materials, businessmen constructed a lime kiln and quarry on the shoreline of the bay.

Today, the Inn at Bay Harbor occupies the abandoned lime quarry. Guests still close out the day to the spectacular sight of our "million dollar sunset" and new generations of travelers return, year after year, for the elegance and romance of Bay Harbor.
