Bay View Association Named One of the Nation's "Prettiest Painted Places"

Posted: Updated:

It's an Emmet County community filled with colorful places, and now it's getting national attention.

The Paint Quality Institute named Bay View Association, in Petoskey, one of the nation's 12 Prettiest Painted Places.

The seasonal community is a place where it's not uncommon to find a cottage painted bright yellow, red or even pink.

The members aren't allowed to put siding on the cottages, so over the years they've gotten creative with paint.

Bay View competed against nearly 200 other colorful nominees from across the country.
