Our charming lakeside communities make this a vacation destination like no other.
The Petoskey Area of northern Michigan is a collection of resort communities nestled along the northwest Michigan lakeshore. While each has its own unique appeal, they all share in the area’s spectacular natural beauty, relaxed pace and genuine hospitality. On your vacation here, be sure to visit them all.

- The charming waterfront community of Harbor Springs offers an array of art galleries, culinary attractions and the deepest fresh-water harbor in the Great Lakes. Boyne Highlands and Nub's Nob offer an incredible skiing destination in the winter.
