We are a beautiful waterfront Historic Inn built in 1903 located between the gorgeous shores of Portage Lake and Lake Michigan in Onekama - Northwest Michigan.

Nestled on a peninsula between the sparkling waters of Portage Lake and the unmatched beauty of Lake Michigan, the Portage Point Inn is the perfect place to leave your everyday life behind. You’ll feel yourself exhale as you take a break from the hustle and bustle of your hectic schedule and settle in to our beautiful waterfront paradise.

And, there’s something for every season. Whether you’re looking for a perfect summer beach escape, a fall color tour, or cozy winter weekend, Portage Point Inn is the perfect place to make memories.


For over 100 years, PPI has been the foundation of the Onekama community.  The historic character and charming atmosphere have had their shine dulled, but through the dedication and commitment of the new owner you can see history in the making as this majestic inn continues to transform into her former glory.

Watch the sunrise over Portage Lake and the sunset over Lake Michigan, then build a campfire on the beach to roast marshmallows and gaze at the stars. During the prime summer weeks, we play bingo and have shuffleboard tournaments. Also for the kids is the big fish contest and sandcastle building contests. DJ Eddie will have an outdoor dance with hula hoop contest and bubble gum blowing contests, and capped off with a movie for the whole family on the front lawn of the historic hotel.

Bring your boat because we have a marina just outside your room. Our marina has 47 seasonal and transient slips capable of handling boats up to 100'. You can go horseback riding at Rock 'n' R Stables. Take the family tubing down the lazy Platte River at Riverside Rentals. Fish on Portage Lake, Lake Michigan and the area rivers and streams. Go charter fishing right from our marina or we can arrange a guide for the river. Tour up the coastline through orchards and visit quaint villages, lighthouses, and wineries. Golf at one of the many areas golf courses with world famous Arcadia Bluffs just 9 miles away. The village of Onekama, 4 miles away, on the other side of Portage Lake has a variety of eateries, shops, bars, and a grocery store. In the evening, you can be entertained by visiting the Little River Casino, just 10 miles from the resort.
