Bay Pointe is beautiful. I had a lovely reception there. My husband and I were very happy we chose Bay Pointe. The coordinator is very nice and helpful. She was readily available, knowledgable, and willing. We really appreciate Bay Pointe having us.

We actually found the Bay Pointe Inn as a stopping place while driving up Michigan, and ready TripAdvisor reviews.......it is just lovely. From the moment you walk in the front door and smell the fragrant air, and notice the freshly baked cookies and apples welcoming you, to the many overall decorative touches, art, pottery, pictures in the lobby, rooms, halls,...

We had planned a last minute three day getaway, originally planning to stay at or near Firekeepers Casino. Failing to find rooms available at the Casino Hotel, I started searching Hotels.com & other travel sites. I located Bay Pointe Inn which seemed to have everything we were looking for, was not much more costly than the chain hotels surrounding Firekeepers,...

We have lived around the lake for 16 years and this is the first time we were staying as a guest. The room had a beautiful view of the lake and sunrises. However, It is a very pricey place to stay. It does have built in soap dispenser in the bathroom (hand, shampoo and conditioner). Came with a free breakfast...

Stayed at Bay Pointe Inn two years ago. Rooms average, but nice stay with good food. This year, rooms filthy, carpets stained, staff inattentive and meals sucked. Soggy perch and overcooked salmon. Waitress was nice enough. Won't be returning anytime soon.

Rooms pretty standard (bathroom could use brighter lighting). Nice view looking out at Gun Lake. Beds comfortable. Dining at the Terrace Grill was a pleasure. Food was quite good, but would not say exceptional. What was very special was the music provided by The Mike Frost Project (they played from 5 - 9). This is a musical group that has...

Scenic Gun Lake is truly a Seasonal stop. If you are traveling southern Michigan, it's well worth visiting but if you are treating yourself to Fall Color wonders, then this should be your destination.
