My husband and I just got back today from our new "home away from home," the Brigadoon! It truly felt that way- from your extremely gracious and hospitable staff, to our cozy room with all of the amenities we had hoped for (and then some), to the delicious breakfasts, the great location, and the impeccable condition and decor of the...

The Bay View has become one of our all time favorite places to stay. If you want big and fancy, this isn't for you. If you want a grand old lady with character, warmth, cleanliness, personality, great staff, great food, wonderful location/view, then this is for you. This was our third time at the Bay View and we consider Rose,... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night while visiting Mackinac Island. This was our first ever stay at a Bed and Breakfast, so we didn't really know what to expect. Prior to the stay, I priced a lot of hotels on the island, and this was more expensive than many of the hotels. We decided to stay here... More

This B&B is a wonderful place to stay while on Mackinac Island. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, especially Rose (who does the wonderful cooking), and Harold, who waited on us at breakfast and dessert. The rooms are clean and functional, but they are small, as expected in a B&B. Breakfast is a treat and different each morning.... More

The Bayview is a quaint bed & breakfast located on the waterfront of Mackinac Island. This was our second stay at this B&B. The main reason that brought us back to this place is the atmosphere and hospitality of the staff. Rose makes the most wonderful breakfast and delicious deserts in the evening. George helps in the dining room and... More

Located about 5 mintues walking distance from Shepler's Ferries, I knew I'd love the B&B the second I saw it from the street. It looked cute, well-maintained, and most importantly, clean. We felt welcome from the moment we walked in, between the friendly check-in and the aroma of fresh cookies and muffins wafting through the front door. I have a... More

Wake up to the aroma of fresh baked pastries and the morning special from the kitchen of this quaint bed and breakfast. Take your time eating breakfast in the dining room or outside on a comfortable wicker chair as you watch the ferrys come in, or listen to the clip clop of the horses going down the street. No motor... More

Not only a beautiful bed and breakfast right on the water on Mackinaw Island, but a jubilant, service oriented staff making decadent desserts every night. The Harbor Suite is large with windows along 2 walls, a jacuzzi tub, and private balcony overlooking the bay. Great location to watch the sailboats and ferries come and go, and a cute coffee shop...
