“Perfect Getaway!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

My husband and I just returned today from our 4 night stay at BPI. The owner and staff were very accomodating and we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and comfortable stay. We were able to bring our own boat and docking was provided. We stayed on first floor and enjoyed our own private patio allowing easy access to the beautifully landscaped grounds. Attention to detail for those staying at the the BPI is the proprietor's top concern as he was available and asked several times if everything was okay with our stay as we would run into him as he walked the grounds talking to hotel guests. Complimentary breakfast was delicious and relaxing as we dined outside on the restaurant deck/patio and able to enjoy the lake views. Before leaving, we booked the same week for next year and can't wait to go back! P.S. Fishing was also great for my husband. He caught a 5+ lb bass and it will be going to the taxidermist this week.

Room Tip: We enjoyed staying lakeside on first level with own patio which allowed for easy access to the boat...

I have never stayed at the inn, but I have visited the Terrace Grill twice, including once last night.

The best part of the Terrace Grill dining experience is definitely the view of Gun Lake. There aren't too many bad places to sit in the restaurant except for the bar, which faces opposite the lake. An outdoor spot would be ideal!

The service is consistently good, not fabulous. One particular case of poor etiquette: we asked about "Pasta Night," which the host had mentioned when we walked in the restaurant. The server began by telling us that the promotion was being offered in a separate dining area and that we would have to move tables/restaurants to participate. We declined, at which point she began to talk about how amazing the food was and how cheap the promotion was...even though she knew we were not leaving our table at the Terrace Grill. We had to stop here at one point to remind her that we would be eating at the Terrace Grill.

The food is pretty tasty, but it is pricey. Definitely not a casual dining experience by way of prices (attire is a different story...). I had the rainbow trout--a special, and I was satisfied. My wife and two other guests had the fish tacos, which were enjoyed but not treasured. It seemed that they were lacking a bit in flavor.

Excellent drink menu, both for meal-time cocktails and after-dinner treats.

My fiance and I recently attended a wedding at the Bay Point Inn, and there is really only one word to describe it - Breathtaking. This resort was absolutely gorgeous, and the lakefront view is definitely the top attribute. The staff was extremely friendly, and I know we will definitely stay here the next time we fly up to the Grand Rapids area!

My wife and I were married at BPI recently. Our wedding party, family, and friends had booked up most of the rooms the night of the wedding. We can honestly say that the staff at Bay Pointe Inn surpassed our expectations on every level. It is obvious why they are one of Michigan's top-rated resorts and wedding locations.

We had been to BPI a few times for dinner and live music, and just really enjoyed the resort and the people. The Terrace Grille is also a great place to drop by for an appetizer and cocktail. The wedding was our first time actually staying in the hotel.

To begin with, the facility itself is beautiful and in a great location. It's kind of a hidden gem in central Michigan. The BPI team were great to work with. They were very polite, gracious, professional, and fun to be around.They worked really hard to make our event special and succeeded on multiple levels. We didn't have to worry about a thing. It was awesome.

The common areas and hotel rooms were all very clean, the food was excellent, the bar service was stellar, and the pavilion by the water was the perfect size for 130 guests (plus a 3-piece band and dance floor). You can tell that the BPI staff know what they are doing when it comes to hosting an event - they were completely coordinated and right on point.

I could list more than a dozen examples of the type of exemplary service we experienced, but a few that really stood out were: a) my elderly grandparents were ferried down to the wedding/reception area in a golf cart so they wouldn't have to negotiate the concrete stairs or downhill path, b) on Friday night, a bunch of guests that had arrived at BPI a day early were playing bean bag toss (cornhole) down by the water and one of the BPI employees brought down extra chairs and bug spray for everyone - without anyone asking, and c) on the day of the wedding, BPI staff were out on the lawn setting up like 8 hours in advance - they had everything ready to go and under control way ahead of schedule and worked through the entire ceremony and reception to keep things running smoothly.

Whether you're looking for a venue for a wedding or event, a weekend getaway, or a nice place for dinner, I'd recommend BPI to anyone.

Note: The food at the Terrace Grille has always, in our experience, been phenomenal.

Room Tip: The third floor suites are really top-notch. We got great reports on all of the rooms from our guest...

Our son was married at the Bay Pointe Inn recently. We had been there previously for dinner only, but this time had the opportunity to stay overnight. The atmosphere at the Bay Pointe in is casual elegant. There are cookies, coffee, and apples waiting in the reception area when you check in. The staff was attentive and gracious.

We had booked a lakeside luxury room and found it to be clean, nicely decorated, and much nicer than most of the other properties we have stayed at over the years. Guests attending the wedding occupied nearly all of the inn’s 39 rooms, and I did not hear any negatives! It is small enough to have a quaint, homey feel to it, yet Bay Pointe has amenities you would expect at a larger chain, such as a work-out room, nice indoor pool area, and hot tub. It is a short walk to sit out by the lake where you will be surrounded by beautiful flower gardens and a waterfall.

The dining room is very nice with good live entertainment many evenings, and the continental breakfast way surpassed our expectations, with delicious croissants and egg dishes as well as cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt and breads. I would highly recommend the Bay Pointe to anyone looking for a beautiful wedding venue, or just a quiet weekend getaway!

Room Tip: A lakeside room is well worth the additional cost.

Our daughter was recently married at the beautiful Bay Pointe Inn, Gun Lake Shelbyville, MI.
She had dreamed of a lakeside wedding, and this was the most perfect location to fullfill her dreams. The food, hotel, fabulous setting and professional staff were all perfect. The ability to stay in one location and relax and enjoy this beautiful property with family and friends made our job as parents of the bride fantastic! We would highly recommend Bay Pointe Inn to all who want a classy and yet scenic wedding location.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a room with lake view, it is worth it!

We wanted to stay at Gun Lake Casino and discovered they have no hotel! Bay Pointe Inn in nearby Shelbyville was the nearest listing, so we went there. We got a great rate in the off season and enjoyed our stay. The staff was nice, the room was comfortable, and the restaurant had good food and staff. I especially liked the abundance of hot water and pressure from the shower. The free wireless internet was a bonus. Situated on a lake, I can imagine that this place will be sold out during much of the Summer season.

One quirk--the wall hangings in our room were all noticeably crooked and permanently attached.
