We had a great time here. It was directly across from the horse stables and this was very comforting, as we are horse people. It was lovely and clean. The only cause for pause was the handling of the gift certificate. We received this nights stay as a gift and the only room available was significantly lower in price than... More

We stayed 2 nights in room 15 which is located in the back (outdoor) wing. Very nice comfy room. 2 chairs, large bath had a stall shower which was fine with us. Hotel is located one street back from the main tourist street but close to the ferry. Gardens are absolutely gorgeous. Tourists were stopping all day to take pictures.... More

The Metivier Inn is a very charming inn with beautiful gardens. My husband and I stayed there for 6 days and had a great experience. We had room #18 and it was on the 3rd floor. I must admit that I am not a physically fit person so I got tired of the stairs really fast but I booked late... More

This lovely victorian B&B on Mackinac Island was outstanding. I was so lucky to pick this one from the internet. The location is terrific. A quick 3 minute walk up a slightly steep street directly across from Shepler's Ferry. I pulled my wheeled suitcase easily. There are porters at the ferry dock who will tote your luggage up. They happily... More

We loved Mackinac Island and The Metivier Inn so much that we added a third day to our stay. We were lucky that the inn had availability so we just switched rooms. This was our first time on MI and this BB has everything you need for an enjoyable vacation. The gardens and lovely front porch provided a quiet and... More

We planned a last minute get a way to Mackinac Island and took advantage of a special the Metivier Inn was offering for a two-night stay. It was our first time to the island and boy did we luck out! The Inn was a great place to stay. We were on the third floor and had a lovely, very clean... More

We met our friends for 4 nights on the island. We were so lucky to have reserved rooms at the Metivier Inn. The rooms were spacious and immaculate. They faced Market street so we were able to wake up and go asleep to the clopping of the horses. The bed was very comfortable. We can't say enough about our innkeepers... More

This was our tenth stay on Mackinac Island, and the past nine have been at the Metivier Inn. The first year we stayed for only two nights. This year we were there for five! Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Innkeepers Dave and Blanca are wonderful hosts and their staff are extremely accommodating. Breakfasts provide ample fare for all tastes -... More
