The Cottage Inn was a beautiful Bed and Breakfast. Our room was very cozy and had everything we needed during our stay. The managers, Jean and John Hudson were so polite and personable. We really enjoyed the wonderful breakfast that was served to us each morning. We also appreciated the special snack they served us each afternoon. We would recommend... More

Let me start by saying that this was the trip I got engaged but it was made so much better because of this inn and the staff. When we arrived to the island, we knew we couldn't officially check in to our room being that it was really early in the morning. We did stop by based on reviews of... More

We stayed in the Bridge Room on the third floor. ­­­The room is located on the top most floor - quiet and peaceful for a good night sleep. The Inn keepers John and Jean are nice and friendly hosts. We are ovo-lacto vegetarian and Jean ensured that there are breakfast items without meat in it. The Cottage Inn is really... More

We had a great weekend on Mackinac Island staying at the Cottage Inn. One of the owner's, John, was super friendly and hospitable. The cleaning staff was also very friendly and good at keeping the place spotless! Breakfast was great. Room was clean and comfortable. Location can't be beat! A word to the wise: The Arnold ferry schedule changed the... More

What a wonderful bed and breakfast. Our room was very nice and clean. The whole place was lovely, from he inside to the front porch where we sat and had a delicious breakfast and coffee every morning. Located on Market street is a bonus! Nice and quiet but still close to downtown. Jean and John were wonderful hosts making our... More

Staying at the Cottage Inn has become an annual ritual for us. It is perfectly located, very attractive, and warm and friendly. New hosts John and Jean are warm, good people, giving us great advice on little known or hidden secrets to be enjoyed while there. The building is very well maintained, and housekeeping is excellent. Thank you Carmen. Breakfast... More

What a pleasure to stay at a B&B where the hosts are eager to help you make the most of your visit. My husband and I just completed a 4 night stay at the Cottage Inn. I checked out the Mackinac Island tourism site before booking, so I had a reasonably good idea that I had chosen a charming place... More

This was the first trip to the Island for me and my husband. We chose Cottage Inn based on the reviews and are happy to say it exceeded our expectations. So much so that we decided to get married there! The location is perfect, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast is delicious. Jean and John are fantastic as Innkeepers... More

This charming Inn is a perfect place for a girls' getaway. We were pleased with the short walk from the ferry, proximity to the shops, and were happy to be tucked away on a quaint and quiet street. The Innkeepers, Jean and John show exceptional attention to detail, from their vibrant flowers adorning the yard, to the delicious breakfasts, and... More
