4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Just returned from our trip to Mackinac Island. We stayed three nights at the bayview. It is such a beautiful b&b. The staff were so friendly and they all had such wonderful attitudes, full of joy. The food that Rose made was so good!!!! I would highly recommended staying here.

Excellent experience with this B&B from start to finish. Much help initiated by owners to secure reservation. Perfect Island setting. Extremely helpful staff. Great food. Excellent rooms. Checked in by Jennifer and given a tour of the B&B before we even saw the rooms. Cook, wait staff and front desk personnel always friendly and helpful. Exterior and interior immaculate. Dining...

I planned a trip to Mackinac for my mother and I so we could celebrate her birthday and have a weekend away. I found Bay View online. I am pretty price sensitive and found Bay View to be fairly inexpensive (compared to others) and had a lot to offer. We stayed in the room right across from the front desk.... More

We chose this B&B because of its location. And it didn't disappoint! Having our own wine and cheese on the upstairs porch in the evening was perfect. And Rosie and the rest of the Jamaican stall were a pure delight. Never order dessert when eating out. Come back for Rosie's evening dessert, which was always special. Room was small, but... More

I agree with other reviewers who said this doesn't have the feel of a typical B&B. There was no connection with the owners/management, and the front desk person was detached. The Jamaican staff, however, were fabulous, from housekeepers to cooks to wait staff, as well as the food--breakfast, afternoon cookies, and evening dessert. I would go back just because of... More

We had a very small room that cost about $50 more per night than our friends room. No dresser or closet, sink in the room, stand up shower, & no space to maneuver. I came back with 3 black & blue marks from negotiating around the bed. Our friends had an interior room with a full bath, closet, dresser, &... More

This was our first trip to Mackinac Island and after some of the reviews we were excited to stay here. We have stayed in many B&B's so we have some expectations. This one didn't quite hit the mark for us. We're used to the owners being there and a "cozier" experience but found out that wasn't the case. The breakfasts... More

This was our 2nd stay at this B&B on Mackinac Island. We had a great time enjoying this beautiful Location and the hospitality of the staff. Rosie will spoil you with her potato cheese quiche, muffins and cookies.
