Our family has an annual get together on Mackinac Island and homebase is always the Stonecliffe Inn. The inn is located away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, atop the west bluff of the island with sweeping views of the straights. After a scenic ferry ride, a horse drawn carriage transports you (and your luggage) across the island to this timeless inn. Honestly, every time we arrive the setting takes my breath away. The view is spectacular and a perfect place for photos, the rooms are pleasant and varied whether you stay in the inn or the summer house and there is a full service restaurant and bar that serves a great breakfast each morning. The Inn at Stonecliffe is a wonderful place to stay while visiting the island.
