My wife and I arranged a week-long rowing camp at the Lake Leelanau rowing club, which is connected to the fountain point resort. We loved our time at the rowing club and at the resort. Every morning we'd row, and get great exercise. The resort has many water sport options. Then, we'd grab a pizza at the food truck that was invited to the grounds. Then we'd head to the nearby Lake Michigan beaches to relax. The resort itself has a classic look. The main hotel itself is historic and captures an old-world feel with a beautiful veranda and grand interior.

We really enjoyed our stay here in August. The cabin was simple and clean. Definitely needed some paint and repair though for the price we paid. It also would have been nice to have an oven for preparing some meals. We had a 2 bedroom cabin. All we had was stove top burners. Staff was friendly, polite and nice...they came by every morning to replenish towels or whatever we needed.

We felt like there were a lot of surprises at Fountain Point, both good and bad. We stayed in the main hotel building and arrived on a very hot day. Our room did not have an a/c unit (apparently most places don’t have a/c in the area?), so the top floor was very very hot. However, our biggest surprise was the communal bathrooms. Not something we expected for the price. Room was clean and simple, but the bathroom needed some attention. Staff was friendly and the grounds are beautiful with many activities. They also have hair dryers available, you just need to ask the staff. They were also cool with us bringing out bikes up to the room. We liked the breakfast included with the stay at Betty’s - a cute food truck in front of the hotel. Overall we enjoyed our stay but the accommodations didn’t seem to reflect the price we paid.

Planning a family reunion? Want a romantic weekend getaway under the stars? Got kids who need to run and sing and play? Fountain Point is the perfect spot to relax, recreate and enjoy the company of friends and family. There's a ton of room to spread out, and the water siting on south Lake Leelanau is marvelous. Each cottage has its own personality, and there are ones to fit a wide variety of needs. Truly a distinct and special spot in one of the most spectacular counties in the Midwest. Secret tip: The coolest place to sit on a porch for Happy Hour, or play bocce ball this side of Mackinaw Island.

Although I wasn't a registered guest at Fountain Point Resort I still feel it fitting to right a review because I had the most idyllic experience visiting here last week. It was my day off and I had just left the doctor's office. I was on my way to the town of Lake Leelanau and noticed the Fountain Point Resort sign. I've been living in Traverse City for five years and for some reason never knew about FOUNTAIN POINT RESORT until now. I wanted to check it out and went inside to inquire. The owner was having a meeting and I told him I was mesmerized by the beauty of the place and asked if I could take a look around. He was extremely accommodating and invited me to see the museum and take a walk around the grounds. I was in awe of how nostalgic the whole place was. Stunning scenery and a one of a kind hotel. If I was a Hollywood producer I would remake the film "Dirty Dancing" here or direct a classic love story on the grounds. Beautiful, charming, serene, unique.....my gosh I was in awe of the entire property. The hotel is a historic landmark and the cabins that overlook Lake Leelanau are classic. There are so many activiites here from croquet to shuffleboard, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, rowing, swimming.....there are outdoor concerts in the summer too which are extremely popluar from what I hear. I loved the back porch and wish I could have there for an hour and relaxed while looking at the majestic lake. The location is perfect, off the beaten path but yet so close to the town of Lake Leelanau. Fountain Point Resort is a class act. I always thought the East Coast had all the one of a kind old fashioned resorts until I discovered Fountain Point Resort. I plan on volunteering here next year for the outdoor concerts because a colleague of mine who volunteers for the concerts says it's a lot of fun. If you're yearning for a one of a kind place that feels like a bygone era look no further than FOUNTAIN POINT RESORT. It's a gem of a resort which deserves to be featured in a major film.
