“This was a special and memorable stay with loved ones. The entire staff was exceptional in attitude, service, and personality. The Four Seasons could learn from them! At last count we have been to 85 countries, Bay Pointe could well be our new home when not in California!!!”

“The people at Bay Pointe Inn Created a great atmosphere for a successful meeting.  Their attention to our every need, both large and small, went beyond our expectations.  We really felt like we were in a big city hotel, except the staff and accommodations were all to ourselves nestled on the shores of beautiful GunLake.”

Wedding Reviews

“We are still “high” on our weekend at Bay Pointe Inn. We had a fantastic time in every way. Your facility is gorgeous and it was perfect for the wedding. Our guests loved it and many want to come back some day. Your staff was great to work with and always accommodating to our crazy ideas. Not sure how you arranged for that great weather when thunderstorms were suspected! We’ve had many say it was the best wedding they ever attended. It was such a great place for family to be together for the whole weekend. I want you to know that the brunch was fantastic! Our family and friends loved it. It was very impressive and we especially loved the omelet station. Wow! My husband wanted to be sure I told you how blown away he was by this weekend at Bay Pointe! He thought the staff was really friendly, the food was great and the facility was top quality. Thank you for a great memory this weekend. Can’t wait to see the pictures. You all were great to work with. The whole experience was awesome. Hope the Peach-atini makes it’s way to your martini list someday. It’s not often that you leave a hotel and the staff gives you a hug!! ”

“Thank you for everything, we couldn’t have been happier! And a shout out to all of your staff for doing such a great job. Everyone was most helpful, and we only heard amazing compliments and comments about the weekend from our family and friends. One groomsman said your Resort is a wedding factory, meant as a compliment. He just couldn’t believe you could host that many events so seamlessly at the same time, or so close together. And, many guests mentioned they couldn’t believe such a gorgeous location was such a “hidden” treasure and such a great location for a destination wedding, that was so close to home. The pontoon is such a great touch, and added so much, like a traditional limo ride couldn’t have. This weekend was a dream come true for the bride and groom, and all of us, and we couldn’t have asked for more. We will recommend your location many times in the future, and plan to be there again when an occasion arises. Thanks again! ”
Dennis and Nancy

“I just want to say thank you to you and everyone there. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. The food was great (everyone LOVED the egg rolls) and the service was outstanding. Everyone had a great time and many said they would love to come back. Thanks again for everything, it was truly an amazing day thanks to you and your staff! ”
“Our son’s wedding was held at Bay Pointe and we followed that up with a family reunion/vacation for another 3 days since everyone came from other parts of the US. We were a group that ranged in age from 8 to 85 and the entire time was absolutely perfect – from the staff, to the accommodations, to the LOCATION (gorgeous), to the food. There is great attention to detail in everything Bay Pointe does and it makes you as guest feel welcomed, pampered and valued. ”

“We just wanted to thank you for everything. We were blown away by how wonderful everything was! It was more than we ever expected. The staff was phenomenal, and everyone’s hard work and organization were truly appreciated. Our family and friends made so many comments and compliments about how beautiful and unique Bay Pointe is, and how they would love to come back and visit again! You made our day so incredibly special for us, and I know the memories of our perfect day on the lake will be treasured for a lifetime. Thank you so much.”

You treated us like royalty. Everyone was so attentive. I really did feel like a Princess. I didn’t want it to end.
All of our guests spoke very highly of the food, drinks and service. You should all be commended.
Thank you again for everything.”  Tracy

“Everything was amazing, rain and all! Food was great, the staff awesome, I can’t think of any details that were missed. I know everyone had a great time and I wouldn’t have changed anything. Even though no girl wishes for rain on her wedding day, I think it’s a really great success story. Getting married under the pavilion was warm and romantic, and I am going to have some awesome pictures.” Amanda

Our guest were very pleased with the facility and we hope to come back again at another time of the year so that we can enjoy the grounds more. I did have a couple of our participants comment on how it was such a special touch to have the music selection on a Christian station during our luncheon. That was awesome! Again, thank you for making the weekend a success. Have a REVOLUTIONARY day! ”
