I recently retired and my wife and I decided to spend a few weeks traveling to all of the places we never were able to when we were working. The first place we decided upon was Mackinac Island as we have heard so many wonderful things about it from our various friends who have stayed there. We were told there was no better place to stay than the Island House because of the front porch and the restaurant which serves “the best prime rib anywhere.” A few weeks before we were set to arrive I was in a car accident and broke my leg. Rather than cancel the trip, I called the hotel to ask if there was any way they could accommodate me. They immediately informed me they would request a room without stairs and near an elevator as well as explained the different lifts available in the hotel so I wouldn’t have to worry about stairs with my wheelchair. I was very hesitant about how the whole thing would work out but I decided to make it work because we were both looking forward to our trip so much. Upon arrival at the Hotel we were immediately informed that our room was right off the elevator and they even offered to reserve a motorized cart for me to use during my stay. My wife and I had a wonderful time and I am sure our time spent relaxing on the porch had a lot to do with my recovery. I can’t thank the staff enough for making our trip possible and enjoyable.
