“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Wow! We will always come back to this resort. Great beds with sheets and blankets that are so soft and smell so good. Cabin right on the water with a Bon fire every night. Fresh coffee in the coffee house all day long. So much for the kids to do. We can't wait to come back.

We have stayed here before and enjoyed it thoroughly both times. When I called to make our reservation, I asked for the same cabin we had before which we got. When Donna sent our confirmation, she included both my name and my wife's which she had looked up in her records. I thought it was a nice, personal touch. The cabins are quite old and lack modern hotel amenities. However, they are on the beach with an awesome view and perfect "up north cabin" atmosphere. They have a bonfire on the beach every night and coffee in the gazebo every morning. It is just far enough out of Mackinaw and Cheboygan to be in the woods, but close enough for for easy access.

Its a great choice from a sea of options at Mackinaw and most balanced for the value of money. We were 3 couples stayed in motel rooms for 3 nights on long weekend. Owners have done an amazing job at keeping this big property clean and beautiful. the view of bridge and lake is breathtaking from the open area( not a sand beach) near cottages. We walked down to the beach front every day early morning for the spectacular view. They have multiple bonfires every night and the best part was when we wanted start our own bonfire in front of the lakeview beach area and owner helped us get started in a second. Great service. Will definitely come back.

I was very pleased to see that the cottage was much nicer than depicted in the brochure pictures. It was meticulously clean and the owners are very friendly and accomodating. It is obvious that they spend a lot of time doing daily maintenance and everything had a fresh coat of paint. The nightly bonfire next to the lake is priceless! The enclosed gazebo is great for those cold evenings & you can sip on the free coffee or roast marshmallow/hot dogs with the large number of roasting sticks. We decided to use one of the many charcoal grills that even has all of the utensils that you need. The furnishings are very basic, but ample for our needs. The surroundings are very quiet and the view of the Mackinac bridge is incredible.

The only thing that could improve the stay would be a small microwave oven. The fridg & gas stove worked well. We had our own picnic table & the grounds and flowers are beautiful.

The cottages are very rustic, but will meet your needs if you enjoy the country atmosphere. We definitely plan to return ASAP.

I have been going to the Mackinac Motor Lodge and Resort every couple of years since I was a child. This year was the first time I have been there since having my own family and I feel it has gotten better with age! We stayed in a cabin that was clean and nestled among all of their kid friendly toys and activities. Yes, it is rustic and aged, but it was spotless and family oriented, which made it totally worth it. (they did have Dish Network service, very nice to calm my kids with a cartoon at the end of the day!) I love this place and recommend it to everyone!

We rolled into town at 10:00 pm, and all the big name hotels were full up, so we drove out a short way and found this retro motor lodge. The couple who runs it were very nice, and we got a double w/sleeper sofa for $75. The room & furnishings were old, and a little odd (knotty pine paneling, and a modern chrome headboard... oh well) but the place was immaculate.

It's just a short walk (on their property) to the shore of Lake Michigan, and a beautiful view of the bridge. They had two bonfires going, and there were several camping cabins that could be rented too.

Very short drive to downtown, and actually, it was nice NOT to be right in the middle of the crowd. We were only there for the night, but I'd definitely go back for a long weekend.

The view of the lake and Mighty Mac was wonderful! located within 1 1/2 miles of all Mackinac City has to offer. Enjoy a wonderful morning with a warm cup of coffee while watching the sun come up and by evening there is a bom fire with everyone welcome. They pass around snacks and smores to be enjoyed by all.
Plenty of things to keep the kids busy as well can't wait to go visit again!!!!
