We recently stayed at the Bay View with our two year old daughter for just one night on the island. The staff made the place a five star - they are so friendly and go out of your way to make sure that you are comfortable. We arrived on a rainy day, and they had fresh cookies warm out of... More

The Bay View is amazing. The staff add to the experience as they are awesome. The location is for sure the best on the island. Now many B and B's have a pm snack, but every nite Rosa puts out homemade desserts that are fantastic. Was weird/a little dissapointed that the owners weren't there because when we have done the...

My mother and I stayed at the B&B after a run event on the Island. It was a wonderful. The staff allowed us to store our luggage until the room was available (good since we were there at 8:30 a.m.). The room was on the first floor, not overly spacious but it had all that we needed. I loved the... More

This is the place to stay if you need to unwind. It is located just a short walk away from the busy downtown area. That makes it very quiet at night. They have a beautiful deck overlooking the bay so you can relax with a book. The breakfast is phenomenal, they have cookies in the afternoon AND a HUGE desert... More

Courteous staff, delicious breakfast and desserts, beautiful patio overlooking the water. Close enough to the main shops to walk but far enough to be away from the crowds. Small rooms, could use a little more storage space to unpack suitcases but they are working with what they've got as most rooms on the island are pretty small!

My wife and I were married at the Bay View on July 4th, 2014, and the wonderful memories created will last a life time. The staff were very helpful and friendly, they made it seem as though you were part of the family. I would encourage anyone staying at the Bay View take a few minutes to get to know... More

We have returned for the fourth time, and it is always so welcoming, so clean, and the breakfast and evening dessert; beyondo!! Rose and team are amazing, the room is cleaned usually before we can get back for lunch, and the grounds, view, and flowers are incredible. The one small downside is the small room, with no closet, but a... More

My wife and I remember a visit to Mackinac Island and the beautiful Bay View 20 years ago. We thought a gift certificate to the Bay View would be a nice wedding gift for my uncle when he tied the knot recently. When the bride and groom insisted we join them on the island... we could not resist. The place... More
