The Fountain Point Hotel
The Fountain Point hotel consists of 13 guest rooms, 2 with attached private baths, the other 12 use private baths located at the end of the hall. Hotel rooms are a good option for cottage guest overflow and are available for nightly rentals with a two night minimum.
One of the original summer destinations in northwestern Michigan, the Fountain Point House welcomed its first guests on June 9, 1889. This particular lakeside setting was chosen as ideal because of the therapeutic waters flowing out of the artesian well, and the spectacular vistas down the lake. Guests and supplies arrived by steamer, departing from Traverse City and arriving at the Fountain Point House after a two hour journey. The average stay was one month. Since that time every effort has been made to preserve the original ambiance. Antique furnishings remain an essential part of the guest experience. By 1924 the Red Room and now Game Room were a part of this sprawling building where guests can play pool and read on rainy days. The front porch facing the lake wraps itself around the hotel. Wicker furniture and original porch chairs all in white with green cushions lure you for a quiet moment or hour with a book and the soothing sound of the fountain. The Game Room has ping pong, foosball and a 100 year old billiard table. There is a library of children’s books, novels and mystery stories. We have no television. The rooms are simply furnished with original furniture. There is one room with private bath. Daily and weekly rates vary during the season and which particular room you choose.
