“Great place for the family”
Reviewed August 16, 2010

Spent three days in the hotel. The room was simple and had that old-style charm. No bathroom in the room just like in the old days. Had to share the bathrooms with several other rooms, but never was an issue. The grounds are spacious and lot's of things to do for children.

The water in Lake Leelanau felt good on the hot summer days.

Easy access to Leland and Sutton's Bay.

This is a excellent place for a family getaway.

I have been going to Fountain Point since I was 6 years old (I'm now 33!) I have cherished every moment spent at F.P. It feels like a second home to me and I am proud to be a part of its very LONG tradition. It's the most picturesque, charming, peaceful spot on God's green earth. I can't wait for my children (so far, a 10 month old boy, but we're hoping for more) to make memories of their own here. I can't say enough good things about Fountain Point and Leland (aka Fishtown). All I can say is GO, GO, GO! Don't hesitate for a moment. And be prepared to relax!

Fountain Point is an absolute national treasure and an amazing summertime secret. The service of the staff, cleanliness of the grounds, awesome natural beauty and gorgeous lakefront setting provide for a feeling of such wonderful contentment as to be truly special.

The resort itself is comprised of a main building which is over 100 years old and retains all the charm of that era long gone. The hotel rooms are on the second floor, some with lake views. The main floor has a library full of books with a wonderful large fireplace and quiet corners to read in. There is also a large game room which has pool, fooseball, kids books and games plus much more. The best feature of the main building is the front porch, which faces the water, where one can sit and watch the afternoon drift by.

The cottages are all a bit different and can hold a different amount of people. Ours had four beds in it and was perfect for us. Very clean and simple. No TVs or telephones in the cottages which I absolutely loved! They all have propane grills, dishes and linens.

The grounds are fairly expansive. The dominating feature is the large central lawn. It was a constant playground for our two children ages 8 & 10. We never worried about them as they played with the other children staying at Fountain Point that week.

The lake was great to swim in on hot days. There are fishing boats to rent though we did not. We used FP as a launching off point for day trips to the surrounding area as well. Sleeping Bear dunes, north bar lake, and Lake Michigan are all within minuets. Also the charming towns of Suttons Bay and Leeland are within a short distance for restaurants and shopping.

We had a tremendous time and thank the staff at Fountain Point for making our trip to Northern Michigan so memorable. We plan on being back this year for another week 'up north'!
