The inn keepers had just taken over 38 days before we checked in and seemed to have a good handle on the running of a B&B. The inn was extremely clean, beds comfortable and breakfast plentiful. All 11 rooms were occupied and... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated with a warm and cozy atmosphere. Breakfast was very good. The maid did a great job keeping our room clean. We would definitely stay at the Cottage Inn on our next visit.

My boyfriend and I LOVED our stay at Cottage this past week. John and Jean (the innkeepers) were very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The cleaning staff were extremely polite and thorough as well. We stayed in the Revolution Room, which is on the first floor near the breakfast area, but it was never too loud. And the breakfast served was... More

Jean and John were very friendly and accommodating. Bright, clean, nicely appointed rooms - none of the overly decorated Victorian. We were in the Bridge Room. The four poster queen bed was high and the mattress was comfortable. Free WiFi, cable, heat pump cooling. The Cottage Inn is off the Main St. but with in very easy walking distance to... More

This is a great place to stay on Mackinac Island. Jean & John were wonderful hosts and very helpful advising us on the available activities during our two day stay. We stayed in the Garden Balcony room overlooking Fort Mackinac and Marquette Park. The room was very clean and quite comfortable. We enjoyed breakfast which was very good as well... More

We were greeted at the door by the innkeeper.From that moment we felt at home. John and Jean are great. The breakfasts were great and we loved the afternoon sweeties.We felt like we were "Somewhere(back) in Time" but still had TV and WI-FI. We shall return again.
