My husband and I were fortunate to find a place to stay when we decided to get away at the last minute. We were even more glad that the Inn On Mackinac had a room available. We were pleasantly surprised, from the time the porter met us at the ferry dock to our leaving. This is a beautiful Victorian Inn with a friendly, helpful staff, spotlessly clean, well maintained, large spa with waterfall, great front porch to sit and watch the people and horses passing by, wonderful breakfast along with coffee and tea available all day, crackers and cheese early afternoon, and homemade cookies before bed. It is just on the edge of town so easy to get around with just enough activity to make it interesting but without the huge crowds. It has an elevator and good AC. There are lots of little sitting areas along with an outdoor patio surrounded by beautiful flowers. I hesitate to post this because we would like to keep it to ourselves...tried to stay on a second night but they were totally booked. The only thing I can think of to improve on this place is to replace the queen bed with a king...there was plenty of space in our room to hold this.
- 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
