we have no complaints with this room. It was clean and comfortable. It rained that day so unfortunately we weren't able to enjoy sitting on the patio. They gave us a king size bed with jacuzzi for a very good price. We got up at 7a.m. to see an incredible sunrise and ducks. The seagulls (ugh) piped in too. But... More

This hotel property is in serious need of updating. Looks on the outside is deceiving. On the inside, it's a much different story. First and foremost, the beds are very old and creak when sat on. You can actually feel the springs. The sheets are NOT changed! How do I know? Well, when I pulled back the covers, there was... More

Whenever we venture to Michigan for our family reunions, we always head to Mackinac as it was our Mom's favorite place. This year, between our Aunt and Uncle's 75th Anniversary celebration and my son's wedding we managed two days of relaxation. We normally stay in Mackinac City, but saw an ad for Bavarian Haus and gave it a try. We... More

You know, I'm thrilled we could live up to your usual stay in Mackinac City. Reading about your evenings sitting on the balcony and watching the meteor showers -- it sounds like you really had a pleasant stay here. Thanks for the rave review -- I look forward to welcoming you back. All the best, Howard Cole, Owner More

We enjoyed a weekend trip, staying at the Bavarian Haus. The view from our room was so beautiful! It is very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Very nice property on the lake. Great indoor pool and 2 hot tubs.The breakfast in the morning was good, and there are many restaurants just down the road for lunch and supper. Village Inn has... More

An older family owned hotel with great view of Lake Huron and comfy beds. Great inland stay for visiting Mackinac Island. Ferry is 5 minutes drive down the street. Pros: friendly service, comfy beds, decent continental breakfast, great view from the room patio, very close to the Mackinac Ferry. Cons: super small toilet seat in the big bathroom (normal male...

Stayed for three nights and were happy with the trip. The room and linens were very clean, king size bed was exceptionally comfortable, and the lake view was wonderful. It's an older building, no air conditioning in the hall ways, but I think they've done well in keeping it up. Breakfast was pretty standard, based on chats with other guests... More

We might be an older facility, but my team and I try to keep things updated. It's concerning to hear that the screen door is questionable, so I'll look into that. Still, glad that didn't stop you from enjoying your visit! From the spacious rooms to the lake view, it's great to hear you felt right at home with us,... More

Had a room with 3 queen beds, fridge, microwave. Beds were firm but comfortable. A/C kept room at refrigerator temps. Large, spacious rooms. Privately owned hotel and people at front desk act like it. They are friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was average and included in the price of the room. Overall, this is a great value and an excellent... More

We were very happy with our accommodations. The room was very spacious, with a microwave and refrigerator and a private balcony overlooking Lake Huron. The price was much more reasonable than any other lakefront/lakeview hotels we checked into. We were able to watch a beautiful peaceful sunrise. The front desk personnel were very friendly and helpful. They helped us get... More

My family and I stayed four nights in the 3 bedroom suite. I think there is only one and you have to request it as it is not on the website. What a great setup! The view (both of them) was breath taking and the amenities great comfort for our home away from home. The housekeeping was thoughtful as they... More
