We had a very enjoyable two nights at the Bay View. The cookies, etc. at 3pm were nice, but the dessert served at 8pm was a treat. Breakfast was very good too. They have a nice, helpful staff. Everything was clean. Great late season rate - half price for the second night. Can't beat that, we would have spent more... More

My wife and I stayed two nights here in early October of 2014. Based on other places we've stayed, I'd really call Bay View a small, boutique hotel, but that doesn't take away from its charm. We had a view from our room looking toward the town and could also see the harbor from our small porch, but unfortunately it... More

This BandB is right on the water's edge, a short three blocks from the center of town. The rooms are very small, but you can game in the dining room where teaand cookies are served at three pm and a full breakfast 7-9:30 am. There is not a full dining room, but there are many restaurants close by. The staff... More

Well, we returned to our Mackinac Island "family" again. Our 4th stay in the last 6 years, we love to stay here. We spent the extra money for a suite which we had stayed in before and were once again NOT disappointed. Like a visit home, everyone is warm friendly and wonderful. From Becky at the front desk, Rosie, our... More

Great location, Clean, and a wonderful staff...........located short walking distance from the ferry, downtown, and other landmarks. Nice walk around the island, biking available for rent next door, carriage rides across the street, and the staff will call you a taxi for transportation. Village Inn great white fish dinner..........................just a fun place

We stayed 2 nights at this quiet, quaint inn. Our room was VERY small. I think I would have been happier if we had paid more and had a bigger room, perhaps with a balcony. Breakfast, afternoon cookies and 8pm dessert were all quality and delicious! Location is great as it is a short walk to get downtown, but is... More

We stayed here at the Bay View B&B. It was beautiful and lends itself to a relaxing atmosphere! The rooms are tastefully decorated, as is the dining room. In the morning a delicious breakfast is served. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon, warm, homemade cookies are served with coffee or tea. Between 8 and 9 in the evening, a decadent... More

We stayed here based on another review and were not disappointed. Bay View is walking distance to town/ferry docks, yet far enough to avoid the noise of downtown - the rooms are charming and clean. There is a great bike rental right next door, a latte shop out back and many of the buggy drivers are willing to drop you... 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...
