  • The Petoskey Area: A Michigan Treasure 

    The Petoskey Area is where daydreams turn into lifelong memories. A breathtaking place on Lake Michigan's glistening Little Traverse Bay with stunning natural beauty, Victorian grace and endless recreation.

    Petoskey is known for its Victorian architecture, historic Gaslight Shopping District and Michigan's state stone, the Petoskey Stone. The Bay View Association is a step back in time with 500 elegant Victorian homes and public buildings on the National Historic Register. Harbor Springs is a place where time slows down, inviting you to enjoy everything from swimming to dining and shopping to biking. The picture-perfect downtown is great for watching boats in the harbor. Boyne City wraps around Lake Charlevoix, voted second most beautiful lake in the country. There are no strip malls here, just shops and restaurants where you are likely to be personally greeted by the owner. The luxury community of Bay Harbor is bordered by the Little Traverse Bay shoreline, with spectacular views and five-star amenities. Walloon Lake, once Ernest Hemingway's summer home, is located on a pristine glacial lake. It is home to charming retail shops, inviting restaurants and a marina. In Alanson, nestled on the bank of the Crooked River, you can take a stroll on the boardwalk or relax at Sanctuary Island.

    Whichever you visit, you're never far from nationally ranked golf courses, first-class recreation and a "million dollar" sunset, which is why the Petoskey Area is known as a Michigan Treasure.
