Customer Reviews for Inn at Bay Harbor - A Renaissance Golf Resort (2)

Sarah B

Excellent service, calm atmosphere
I was treated to a massage during a weekend trip to Bay Harbor, MI. Everything from the location, the amenities, to the service was impeccable. There are plush robes and refreshing beverages upon arrival, and throughout the experience I truly got the feeling that it was okay to linger and lounge in the relaxation room. I'll definitely be back!

Known for sporty activities, cool summer air, sand & shore, The Inn at Bay Harbor echos relaxation from its natural surroundings. As a returning guest from five years prior, I chose this spa (270 miles from home) for our 20th wedding anniversary. On 6/5/09, I booked a couples massage by phone (they do not offer on-line SpaFinder booking) as a sound romantic escape! On 7/06/09 at the spa, the staff gave a brief tour of the locker rooms and direction to robe and relax in the lounge with tea or lemon water. When our massage therapists appeared to collect us, total relaxation entered our bodies. My favorite first time experience during this massage (of several dozen) was the warm towels placed on the feet during face down. I would recommend this professional & very cheerful staff!
