I brought 4 grandkids ages 10 -14 on my own to the Chippewa Hotel for 3 days and it worked out great for us. Directly on the harbor off the Arnold ferry line, the hotel is friendly and welcoming for all ages. King suite was spacious with balcony/harbor view and sleeping for 5. Kitchenette made in-room breakfast and lunches easy... More

I usually stay at the Lilac Tree so I will be comparing to them. For about the same price I decided to change it up this year and go with the Chippewa instead. I found the rooms to be noticeably smaller, however the decor was similar. The breakfast spot off the back deck is absolutely beautiful so I would highly... More

We stayed at Chippewa for 3 nights in July. Our room was a top floor spa suite which was lovely and spacious. The room was decorated in light blue which seemed different from the dark interior of many of the rooms which we really liked. The balcony is amazing with great views of the town and harbor. Sitting watching the... More

I loved this place. The room was ideal and felt personalized. We had a full view of all the activity on the street and loved it. The nights we were there it was cold and rainy and the room was cozy and comfortable. The food at the Pink Pony is awesome!

This was our first time to the island and we loved it. The flowers were absolutely beautiful everywhere you look. The hotel is conveniently located on the main street very close to the ferry docks. The luggage was handled seamlessly by the ferry (Starline) and Archie, the Chippewa porter. Check in was quick and easy. The room was small but... More

We stayed at the Chippewa for two nights. We had a wonderful stay! We called last minute and were able to get 2 nights, but had to switch rooms. Both were beautiful! Very clean, looked as if they were freshly painted! The staff from the front desk, to the restaurants in & out, to the cleaning professionals, all so helpful... More

Very nice, spacious room on the street. Hotel policy is quiet after 11 p.m. except for hotel sponsored activities like the Pink Pony bar where a nontalentd person identified as a singer bellowed until 1 a.m. thus preventing sleep. Otherwise a nice stay.

Came here with a girlfriend for one night. We booked one of the least expensive rooms, but found it totally charming. We overlooked the town and loved the sound of clomping horses. Town becomes nice and quiet at night after all the day guests go home. Great hot tub ànd had a delightful breakfast overlooking the water. Will definitely stay... More

Our room was comfortable, clean and absolutely charming. Loved the location on the Mainstreet and couldn't believe how quite the room was facing the bustling downtown! The staff was great...courteous, helpful and friendly!

We stayed here two nights last week and it was quite expensive,but superb accommodations. We had a harbor view suite on the 3rd floor and were very impressed with the location, furnishings and most of all the staff. The Pink Pony Restaurant and Bar, along with the patio/deck bar were all great and we enjoyed drinks, dinner and breakfast while... More
