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

The Inn keepers (Jean and John) are a delight. If you have questions, they will do their best to help. They are not intrusive but always available. The Cottage Inn is a block away from Main Street so you are close the busy part of town, but on a quieter street that offers convenience and a peaceful environment. We enjoyed... More

John and Jean were great hosts at the Cottage Inn. We enjoyed their spirit, their helpfulness, and their knowledge of the Island. The Cottage Inn is very close to everything and yet being on Market Street, it is just far away enough from Main Street's shopping/hotel/restaurant district bustle. A quiet comfortable room with the B&B amenities anyone should expect. The... More
