If you are looking for a fancy, high class hotel..this isnt it. However, if you want to pack the kids and dogs up and have a 'camping' feel without the tent, this is the place! My husband and I have been going for years. We take our golden retriever who loves to play in the lake. We make a fire,... More

Had a standard cabin with two queens, fridge and microwave...this was not a full kitchen with stove, which was irrelevant for my needs but surprising in a cabin. Reasonable price and decent setting. Not right on the beach,but just a two minute slow walk. The beach was narrow compared to many waterfront properties, but certainly wide enough for relaxing and... More

When we come to Mackinaw, this is the place that we stay! Usually our entire family stays but it just didn't work out this year. My husband,my son and his dog, and myself stayed this year for the weekend of September 12-14. Russ and Maxine are wonderful people. Maxine even remembered some health issues that I have and asked how... More

Started by being greeted poorly. Went to the cabin and it was smaller than expected. Dirty bedding. Mold in the bathroom. When we spoke to the front desk about getting clean bedding she was rude. The only kind person there was the maintainence guy. We came here looking for a nice place for our family. Did not get that!

I am sorry you were not happy at the Beach House. After checking in you tore the beds apart and complained of dirty linens. When the head housekeeper came to the room to see what the problem was all that was found was lint on the mattress pads which were replace and the beds remade. The carpets had been cleaned... More

We pulled in here on a whim as we loved the look of the pretty individual cottages clustered by a stretch of sandy beach. We were not disappointed as it well lived up to its initial promise. Our cottage was really clean and also cosy (as it was unseasonably cold that day). We looked straight out onto the beach and... More

Spent a week at the Beach House, and will definately go back if we are in the area. Wonderful couple running the place. Fresh muffins & coffe in the office every morning with a chance to chat with the hosts & other vacationers. Laid back sort of place, not big, or fancy, but it provides you with everything you need.... More

We spent three nights at The Beach House and enjoyed it. The beach is fantastic, a beautiful spot with plenty of seating options and a fire pit too. We ate dinner on the beach one night and enjoyed some afternoon down time there as well. The grounds were great as well. Our cabin was small, the bathroom very, but we... More

On the spur of the moment, we extended our recent "Pure Michigan" vacation by one night and, on a whim, decided to stay in Mackinaw City. We drove around in search of a hotel on the beach. We stopped at three places to check prices and setting. The Beach House, hands down, was the winner. Great price (pay the extra... More

In the day to day i spend over 200 nights a year traveling for work I.e. Internationally five star hotels. For a vacation it was wonderful and a complete surprise to stumble across this Mom and Pop hotel. Pet friendly, individual cabins right on the beach!! Accommodation is a throw back to yesteryear, pre mid century. Rooms are very clean... More

This place was exactly what we wanted. I personally hate hotels. I wanted the up north feel that I remembered as child. Little cozy, very clean cabins. The staff were wonderful!!! Very welcoming and informative. Location was just off the busy path. And the beach was one of the best in the area. Well taken care and groomed. Bon fire... More
