My husband and I spent two nights in the Cabins of Mackinaw. We stayed in a chalet and it was perfect for us. We caught the off season rate and were thrilled with the value of the room, plus the hot breakfast served next door. The chalet was built in 2013 and was decorated in knotty pine furniture and had...

So my new husband I decided to honeymoon in Mackinaw for the week. When we saw pictures of these beautiful cabins we thought it would be cool the stay. What we found out was that we were actually staying I a shed like building. The inside was nice, the mattress was hard and did not fit properly against the wall,... More

We stayed with our children on a recent trip to Mackinaw and this was one of our vacation highlights! It had a rustic cabin feel and plenty of room for our 3 grandchildren and 4 adults! The staff was very helpful and everything was great! Looking forward to our next visit! Just perfect!

With all the bad reviews I read on here I was a bit nervous to stay at the cabins but with the discounted price after Labor Day I took the chance. I was very impressed. The cabins were clean and very cute inside. Service was excellent although I feel they overwork their employees. I loved the waterparks and the breakfast... More

DANGER WILL ROBINSON! I had the bait and switch pulled on me. And I had to do the job of the housekeeping people. 1) Found used towel in shower when we arrived. No regular coffee either. 2) Came back to room and found no extra towels. Had requested an alarm clock, but none brought. Was told by the front desk... More

Very dissapointed! We booked our cabin online. Big mistake! It said pri vate beach... that you actually share with all the other hotels across the road. The pictures you see are 500 dollars a night. When we booked it said chalet with queen bed which was a full. The shower had mold on the caulking. For 180 a night I... More

I made reservations at the "Cabins of Mackinaw" based on the information on their website. The pictures on the website are of their "two-story cabins with loft". These cabins are in the front facing the road, completely blocking the view of the rest of the "cabins". Unfortunately I did not find the reviews on TripAdvisor until it was too late... More

I really wanted to like these cabins. As a mom of three young children I thought the cabins would be a better option than a hotel room because of the two room configuration plus the water park access. The pictures on the website boosted a spacious, bright roomy cabin, but upon our arrival we were greeted by a dank, dark,... More

My first impression of this place should have been enough to steer me away. Wish I would have listened to my instincts. Walking into the office I was overwhelmed by the smell of burning incense. Really?? Who burns incense these days?? And especially in a place of business. The desk clerks totally ignored the fact that I was at the... More

Lots of broken- outside: door trim and patio chairs. Inside: lamps (fire hazzard), mattress, holes in the sheet, missing bathroom light bulb, flickering television and Wifi that never worked. We found a bug in the bed and lots of stuff was dirty rusty or crusty: the sink edge, behind the bathroom door and bathroom floor, mold around toilet, rusty front... More
