We had a wonderful stay on Mackinac Island. The Cottage Inn was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Jean and John were gracious hosts and also provided helpful guidance for making the most of our time. The breakfast was delicious too. We will certainly recommend the Cottage Inn to friends who want to stay on the island.

Sharon was turning 70 and she decided for her present from me she would like to go to Mackinaw Island. Since the driving distance was further than we wanted to complete in 1 day we decided to split the trip up. Day 1- We arrived at the Little River Resort and Casino, Manistee, Mi. We enjoyed our stay and met... More

This quaint b&b sits one block off the main street and was so quiet and relaxing. The sunny balcony felt private. The room was pretty and very comfortable. The managers were uber friendly, responsive and accommodating. Breakfast was tasty and love the fresh fruit. We would definitely stay there again.

This was our first time staying overnight on the island, and it was wonderful. John and Jean made us feel so welcome; it was like visiting your favorite relatives. The sitting room was a great place to unwind after a day of walking and biking.

I have stayed in several hotels on Mackinac Island but this is the first one that I definitely plan to return to. Everything is completely renovated (a lot of the hotels are very outdated and have that musty, antiquey smell that I don't love). John and Jean were so helpful and friendly. Everything was spotless, the beds were comfy, rooms... More

The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing and delicious. The Inn is located on a quiet street, but... More

John and Jean went above and beyond to ensure our visit was perfect. Their B&B was spotless. The flowers were meticulously cared for and made a beautiful entrance to their lovely B&B. We would give them a 5 star!

Over the past 27 years we've developed favorite places to stay on the island. This year we decided to include the Cottage Inn B&B for the first time and we're glad we did! John & Jean were very friendly & helpful innkeepers. Good food, clean rooms. We stayed in the Victorian Turret room and the Lighthouse room. Both were very... More

From the moment we walked through the doors, John and Jean made us feel like family. They helped us settle in and made several suggestions about the sights we wanted to visit. Our room (The Father Marquette room) was cozy and very clean. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the rain shower head. The breakfast was nice and we... More
