Make your summer in Northern Michigan memorable.

Open to all, Bay View is a welcoming place to experience a summer that transforms the mind, body and soul. The Bay View Association is an historic, summer community. You are invited to “Experience Summer with Us” on the shore of Lake Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay in this friendly, open community founded by members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
