We have been vacationing on mackinac island every 4th of july week since 1996. Until this year we had only stayed on our boat at the marina, however, we sold our boat with sleeping accomodations at the end of last year and were going through island withdrawl so decided to take our small 18 foot boat to the island for 3 nights starting on labor day. I am so glad we chose to stay at the Chippewa! We stayed in the cheapest room, however, it was perfect. . . bright, clean, cold, a nice view of main street, flat screen tv, wifi, coffee maker, iron and board, hair dryer, and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. We, also, loved the hot tub and close location to the marina and our boat. I would, definitely, recommend this hotel and will stay here again.
