“Wonderful vacation days at the Bay Pointe Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We spent three days at the Bay Pointe Inn. We always stay on the lakeside and enjoy our balcony, and it could not be more relaxing. Rent a pontoon boat from Matteson Marine and enjoy the lake for a day! There are many side trips to take to Crane U-Pick, Holland, Turkeyville, etc. Very few places are as wonderful and relaxing as this combination!

The Terrace Grill is outstanding. The salmon and walleye dinners are as good as you will find anywhere.

Room Tip: We always ask for Room 311-end of the hallway, lakeside with great view, and always quiet!

Needed to get my 94 year old mom out from her city apartment setting.Was pleasantly surprised at the nice setting Bay Pointe Inn offered. We arrived to have fun at the Wednesday night BBQ, enjoyed the beautiful cascading stream in the back surrounded by pristine landscaping, and ate a nicely flavored and serviced meal at the Terrace restaurant. Quite the perfect place for mom since it was clean, cozy and had an elevator. Enjoyed having a pool and hot tub to relax in. Only thing missing was a private beach but a public beach was nearby.

Room Tip: If you like to use the pool a second floor room near the back exit is great

Bay Pointe Inn is a charming property located directly on Gun Lake. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. Rooms clean and spacious - slightly outdated but not bad. Price a little steep but as they say "location, location, location". It IS a gorgeous setting. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Check in and check out efficient and quick. There was a good band playing outdoors by the lake. Plenty of seating with a full bar. We enjoyed the evening. I would rate the Inn a "4+".

On the down side, dinner was disappointing. Food was average at best. For entrees between $20 and $30 each, I expect a little more creativity. I didn't see anything different than we could have ordered in any chain restaurant. That's the reason for the "3" rating overall.

They offer a complimentary continental breakfast, but BEWARE: if you have more than 2 people in your room, they charge $9.95 per extra person for a very limited selection.

Room Tip: Make sure you reserve a lakefront room. Otherwise your view is a parking lot.

Nice place- paid a premium to have a room looking at the parking lot.

Food average at best

breakfast- poor certainly not worth 9.95

ham yes, bacon no- ham was cheaper per server
who has no bacon for breakfast ?

Room Tip: ask for lakeview

Its too bad that you can't give a simultaneous 5 star and 1 star rating so I averaged at 3. We went to celebrate my birthday in a quiet, serene location without kids. We got exactly that; a peaceful, beautiful setting. We rented a kayak and had a very relaxing afternoon. Unfortunately, we hit the restaurant hungry. 15 minutes after being seated, no service, not even water. The food was bland. The service continued to be unfriendly. There is nowhere to walk after dinner. On the next day we were woken at 6 am by the sounds of a screeching metal grind coming from the outer reception area. As annoying as it was to listen to one metal pole birthing another, once awake we enjoyed a beautiful sunrise. So overall a good experience with a few bad stains, kind of like the carpet.

My wife and I stayed here for our 1 year anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better location. The customer service from the staff was tremendous, the room was fantastic (deluxe suite), and couldn't have chosen better weather. Obviously you never know what the weather will hold but there is much to do at Gun Lake. They held two weddings there while we stayed the weekend but you would have never of know by the way the staff made time for our requests and got us in to dine at the grille as long as you make reservations ahead of time. The activities we did throughout the weekend included mini-golf, ice cream, pontoon rental for Saturday, drive up docks for food, and catered small party with friends on the pontoon. We never turned on the tv or used the wifi as we were constantly outdoors enjoying the property and the lake. Overall the customer service was through the roof, the rooms were very clean, food was great and I highly recommend staying at the Bay Pointe if you are looking to get away without going all the way up north.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are definitely worth it and there was almost zero noise being in a suite.

My hubby and I were looking for a location for a weekend getaway along Lake Michigan. Everything was booked. We looked for resorts on Lakes in Michigan and Bay Pointe came up. The website sold us on booking it. When we arrived we were able to get into our room and we were overwhelmed with everything we seen. What an absolutely lovely place to visit. The gardens, waterfall, rocks, available dockage and the food at the restaurant was out of this world. We were there from Friday afternoon till Sunday early evening and it felt like it went by way to fast. We did have a boat with us and was able to explore the lake to find a cottage to stay in next summer. We will be back though for a weekend visit each summer...just to get that piece of heaven. Thanks. so very much for the beauty.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the water - the only way to go. Plus it had a small balcony to enjoy.
