Everyone was so friendly and I loved our room. I never thought I would find a nice hotel that would fit into my budget . The owner waived the roll-away bed fee so that really helped. Mackinac Island is so beautiful!

The Windermere is in a perfect location - at the very end of town so close to everything but quiet even during the hustle of midday. We had a room overlooking the gardens - 2 queen beds with an en-suite bathroom. Exceptionally clean room with big windows to allow the breezes in. Very friendly and efficient staff. Quaint Victorian accomodations.... More

We stayed her 6-11 thru 6-13. We had a great time. Really nice big front porch to enjoy the evenings with a great view. Rooms are good size. We will definitely stay here again. We were able to enjoy the Taste of Mackinac during our stay.

My husband and I just returned from Mackinac Island, and had a pleasant stay at the Windermere. When I called to book, I selected a third floor room with a lake view, which was awesome! Our room was small - just enough space for a queen size bed, dresser, chair, and a private bathroom with shower stall - but we... More

We had a wonderful 1 night stay at the charming Windermere. We booked reservations online line and found check-in to be a breeze. Robert, the porter, obtained our luggage from the Arnold Line docks and carried them up 2 flights up stairs while giving us a brief history of the hotel. Our 3rd floor room was fresh, airy, and immaculately... More

We stayed at the Windermere for 2 nights with our eight month old baby. The porch is wonderful! It looks out over the water, and the street traffic of horses and bikes are right in front of you. We even watched the bridal carriages drive by. The lobby was very pleasant and serene, and our room was clean and comfortable.... More

Even tho it was 45 degrees and very wet outside, the Windermere was beautiful, warm and charming. Lovely Victorian decor, no TV or phone in the room, which becomes a Good thing once you get used to the idea. Room heating was uneven. Nice views from our 2 rooms, one of the water, one of the horses. It was too... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights, booking it relatively last minute and finding it one of the only places with which we could do so. The reviews, we found, were pretty much spot on. We had a room facing the harbor and it was wonderful to wake up to the sound of horses walking on the street... More

The hotel is in a prime position with great views. We were rather taken aback by the gruff reception we received on check in and unfortunately this set the scene for further contact with staff at the hotel during our stay. On checking out our money was taken without any thanks for our custom. Our room was lovely with a... More
