Just a quick one night stay with my son while touring the U.P. Have always wanted to stay overnight on the island. Last minute reservation. Our room "A" was right off the lobby and you would never have known it. Quiet, overlooked the side yard and the lake. Could hear the horses and the waves. Room was quite large with... More

We stayed at the Windermere Hotel once again earlier this week and as always it was really nice. The rooms are spotless, staff is helpful and friendly and the porch is so pleasant and relaxing. The only thing that's not appealing is the continental breakfast. It needs a little improvement. Cold, hard pastries just don't do it for us. Put... More

We stayed at the Windermere Hotel this past Saturday and it was amazing, room was spotless and the people were very nice and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anybody. We stayed in room B2 which is on the 3rd floor and it's a water view room and it's pretty neat because you can watch the freighters go by.

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
