You’ll love the panoramic views of Little Traverse Bay and Bay Harbor Lake as you work out. The club provides a full complement of personal trainers and fitness classes as well as a steam room and spa.

If you love the water, there’s no better place to enjoy it than our private beach. Umbrellas and lounge chairs are provided daily for a hassle-free beach day. Complimentary sailboats, kayaks and paddleboards are also provided for our members and guests who want to get a little more adventurous. So whether you want to lay out or play in the bay, an afternoon at our beach is a day well-spent.


The club’s tennis facility provides three Har-Tru clay tennis courts and three Pickleball courts for both recreational and competitive play. Men’s and women’s tennis clinics, children’s programs and even cardio tennis are available to our members for game improvement and exercise. You’ll always find a game as our tennis calendar is filled with men’s and women’s open play and themed match days. During the winter months, our courts are transformed for paddle tennis play.

Bay Harbor Yacht Club features three unique dining concepts to suit whatever mood you and your guests are in. Whether it’s a quick casual bite, a business meeting over lunch, a formal dinner or just cocktails with friends, we’re ready to serve up something delicious. Our Clubhouse Dining Rooms are for those looking for a more formal dining experience. Here we feature a variety of American cuisine and regional specialities as well as an extensive wine list. Stunning views of the harbor make this a favorite spot for our members at sunset. The Quarter Deck rests alongside the harbor. There’s a more casual atmosphere here. You can grab a bite between laps at the pool or sit down and have a full meal while you catch a sunset over Lake Michigan. We feature live entertainment every Friday evening from June through Labor Day. The Beach House is open daily during the summer months. Offering cool refreshments and light casual fair, it’s a favorite of our beach-going members. It’s also a great spot for to-go orders if you’re heading out on the water for the day.


Our pool is a place to relax and unwind. Just bring your swimsuit and we’ll provide the rest. We offer complimentary towels and lounge chairs for a true resort experience. Lifeguards are on-duty daily and the club provides swim lessons for the little ones.
