Membership Benefits

Here are just a few of the benefits provided to both associate and lease-holding members:

  • Discounts on Bay View activities such as concerts, kids’ club, and tennis/pickleball;
  • Access to Bay View’s beach and boathouse that includes a recreational club for teenagers and sailing and swim lessons as well as rentals of lockers, boat slips, paddleboards, and kayaks;
  • Regular communication of Bay View events via member e-mails, bulletins, and newsletters.

To purchase a cottage and to vote on member issues, a lease-holding membership is required. Associate members are pre-approved for a lease-holding membership allowing for an easy transition when they are ready to purchase a Bay View cottage.
