The positives include the fact that this inn is only a 5 minute walk from the Arnold Ferry. The staff is friendly, and lemonade, cheese, and crackers are available in the afternoon. The warm chocolate chip cookies in the evening were irresistible. Two bike rentals are within a few minutes and it's fun to sit on the porch and watch the horses and bicycles. The morning breakfast includes sausage, eggs, potatoes, and french toast. You can make your own waffle or toast bread or bagels. A bowl of mixed fruit was offered along with yogurt and cereal. The negatives were that the room was very basic and the breakfast foods and dishes needed to be monitored, cleaned up, and restocked more thoroughly. I would have appreciated a trash can in the bedroom and some nicer soaps and shampoos for such a high price.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The year was 1867, an era of horse-drawn carriages and ladies in bustles. Blacksmiths were crafting horse shoes in glowing forges. During this height of Victorian culture, the Inn on Mackinac was built. Known then as Chateau Beaumont in memory of the famous Army surgeon at Fort Mackinac, the Inn on Mackinac has retained its quaint, old fashioned charm. The Inn’s facilities have been updated to meet the needs of the modern traveler while preserving its colorful history. Today, completely remodeled and redecorated, this beautiful Victorian Inn opens its doors, where the very special charm of our family-run Inn awaits you. ... more less
