We spent a week in Cottage 7 in early July. The cabin was perfectly fine; a small kitchen with everything you need as far as utensils, pots & pans, coffee maker, small microwave. Bathroom was nicely updated, and the bed was fine. Breakfast was a typical continental with yogurt, cereal, fruit, breads but you can certainly cook in your cottage... More

We just had our annual Lake Family reunion there. There were almost 50 of us, and we were spread throughout the cottages. We were extremely happy with staff and service. I even did a load of laundry and I came back to it neatly folded. The staff were great with my children. We felt as though they were part of... More

This is a great place to stay and play. The staff is wonderful and very accommodating. There are so many things to do on site you would never have to leave. A truly picturesque venue with plenty of historic charm. We stayed in the hotel and it was very clean. For most rooms, the bathrooms are at the end of... More

It was a last minute idea and they were most accommodating. We booked from Thursday night to Saturday. The location was great, not far from Fish town and Suttons Bay. A short drive to Glen Arbor. Had cabin 17 and it was nice, felt like we stepped back in time, Dirty Dancing movie. Cabin had a useful kitchen and a... More

Fountain Point has beautiful surroundings and views of the lake, and the porch is wonderful to sit and enjoy a sunset. The hotel rooms are clean, but very old and worn. The showers are down the hall as well as the toilets which could be cleaned more often. With the increased rates one should expect better housekeeping. There is no... More

Pros: Quiet location in Lake Leelanau but not far from the more expensive destinations of Glen Arbor and Suttons Bay. Close to a grocery store in the village of Lake Leelanau. Affordable prices. Hotel rooms & private cottage options. Private beach. Fireplace, books & reading area on the first floor. Tennis courts & outdoor games. Free wifi. Very family-friendly. Cons:... More

Fountain Veiw was the best part of out trip to traverse city, I actually think we would of had more fun if we would have skipped Traverse all together and just stayed here all weekend. The boats are a perfect way to start your day, followed by a great breakfast inside the hotel. There are so many things to do... More

In the heart of gorgeous NW lower Michigan Fountain Point Resort has both cottages and an old inn (circa 1890's) for accommodation. We stayed in the Inn during the Leelanau Peninsula Birding Festival and loved the atmosphere. The weather was not fine during the weekend (rainy and cool) but when we returned from outside there were several rooms with a... More

Wholesome, relaxing, fairly quiet, clean, has a good support staff. If you're into TV and electronic games, this is not your kind of place. If silence disturbs you, you might be unnerved. But if you like the outdoors, relaxing chairs and good books to read, this is just fine. Terrific beach, too.

We stayed here for two nights with our two young children. We had a great time and will definitely be back. It is spartan, at best, but that was expected given the price. We stayed in the main house. We ended up switching rooms our second night. If we go back, I will request a room on the 2nd floor... More
