My wife and I were looking for a place to spend a week after dropping our son off to go camping on North Manitou Island and tripped across a listing for Fountain Point and lucked out getting a last-minute reservation. This place is the real-deal when it comes to an old-fashioned family resort because it is rustic and family-oriented. There... More

This is a lovely resort that has kept to its cottage roots. It is located on a huge lawn that slopes gently to Lake Leelanau. West facing, so we've enjoyed those long sunsets. White clapboard cottages with a large main lodge. The scale is nice, the kids have a lot of room to run around, there are a lot of... More

We have a group that meets each year to play Horseshoes and the Game Risk. We choose this venue for the 41st annual " Summit". A truly tranquil and picturesque setting along Lake Leelanau, with spacious grounds. We stayed in the Brown Cottage,which easily accommodated 10 adults and two kids ( the latter loved the swings and Pirate ship). Did... More

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

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
