Spent another week at the "Chip." in September. We met a number of folks who were making their first trip to Mackinac and had the good fortune to be staying at the Chippewa. It was fun listening to them speak of the place as though they had discovered a rare jewel. I'm sure that in addition to the hotel/view of... More

We arrived at the hotel early, but the staff(Bart-manager) was very accommadating and let us into our room early. The room that we got was absolutely gorgeous. It was a corner room with a nice view of the street, and a stunning view of the water. The room was very spacious, and had a large living room space that had... More

We went up with some friends for the Great Turtle race and Halloween with the kiddies. The staff was great. And here is the perfect example: we had a very large group and at dinner one night, we sat about 15 kids at one table. I got lost in adult conversation at my own table, when I looked over to...

The whole crew up there always takes care of us. Conveniently located and with the Pink Pony watched you don't have to leave if you don't want to. The suites are great. They serve milk and cookies to the kids at night and everyone is extraordinarily helpful. Can't wait to head up there next year!

We stayed at the Chippewa for the closing weekend of Mackinac. The Hotel staff were friendly, the facility was nice and we had a great time. Love the Pink Pony and the Halloween decorations. We will stay here again.

As a former Island resident(many yrs ago) staying in a hotel seemed strange but everything about my stays (oct '13 & Oct '14 were a great experience at the Chippewa ! From front desk personnel to housekeepers to your super dock porter Archie, everything was a great experience! See you in May!

My Husband and I spent our Anniversary here and were not disappointed! It's located near Fort Mackinac, the Arnold Ferry Line and is on the Main Street. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and the rooms were beautifully designed.

Stayed for a fall getaway at the Chippewa. Had a top floor suite room. Had a beautiful view, room was huge, clean and guest services were polite and friendly. Was decorated for Halloween, very cute. The only downside was the elevator is tiny - but not a big deal. Great location, grocery store across the street for pop or snacks.... More
