Rich and Marge are much more than innkeepers - they have become friends. They each make everyone feel so welcome and really create an environment so comfortable, like home without chores! This environment has also resulted in friendships with other guests at the Cottage Inn - now we look forward to seeing Rich and Marge and others! Can't forget the... More

My family and I had a wonderful 4-day stay at the Cottage Inn in October of this year. Don & Virginia truly made it feel like a home away from home. We had stayed on the island several times before, but this was our first time staying at this inn, and it definitely won't be our last! To make my... More

I visit the island every fall, yet have never had the privilege of staying somewhere that made me feel like home. From the moment I walked in the door and was greeted by Don till the time Virginia hugged me goodbye, as I stepped out the door to my next adventure. As others have expressed, it IS wonderfully located on... More

After walking the bridge on Labor Day, we went to the island for a few days. We chose the Cottage Inn after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. Don and Virginia were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room (Father Marquette) was clean and well appointed. Loved the breakfasts and truly enjoyed the afternoon snacks. Don was very informative and... More

Loved this place! It was our first time on the island. It was very close to the downtown area and restaurants. Excellent location. The inn keepers Don and Virginia were awesome. Very pleasant. The food was wonderful and she had no problem sharing her recipes. They had a great variety of DVD movies if you wanted to watch anything at... More

This was our first experience staying overnight on Mackinac island and our experience could not have been better. We picked the Cottage Inn based on reviews and we had an excellent time. Location is perfect sitting behind Main Street so very short walk to restaurants/bars. Don and Virginia are perfect hosts and were very accomodating. We stayed inthe Garden Balcony... More

This Inn is very, very convenient to everything, without feeling like you are in a congested area. The rooms are all decorated with a theme, and our room was the "Somewhere in Time" room, which had decor including pictures/posters, of the famous movie made on island. There were even two books about the movie on the nightstand...a nice touch. The... More

I thought a great deal about how to write this review because I understand this is a business, but I decided to tell the whole story because I just did not feel this property should be rated #1 in Trip Advisor for any reason given our experience. I will simply lay out the facts regarding our stay from 9/30 to... More

My husband and I spent a week at the Cottage Inn. It was our first time on the island and we are glad we chose the Cottage Inn. Everything about our stay was perfect. Don and Virginia were the perfect host. The breakfast were delicious and our "Sail Away" room was comfortable and cozy. The location was perfect....close to everything... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here. We had 5 days planned. We were in 3 different rooms. We didn't mind moving around though, it gave us a chance to see all the rod and we got a discount. Don and Virginia were so helpful whenever we needed them. I needed to fax some paperwork for school and he... More
