“Great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We stayed at Brigadoon for two nights. We had a room on the first floor with a queen bed. The room was beautiful and fit perfeclty with the feel of the city and island. The room had a fireplace, queen bed, and jacuzzi tub. The only item from the description that I thought was far fetched was that each room had a balcony (I guess ours was a small porch off the back side of the hotel, maybe used for smoking). Breakfast was good, they serve excellent cookies with tea, lemonade or coffee in the afternoon, and dessert at night. The staff was friendly and helped with everything we needed. Do remember that this is an old building, you will hear creeks and other guests but the owners do a great job keeping everyone comfortable and not defacing this beautiful location.

My husband and I came here to celebrate our 1st anniversary and it was great! Nice staff, excellent food, beautiful house and great location! Walking distance to everything in Mackinaw City and the ferry to the Island so it was very easy to keep busy. We used a b&b coupon, otherwise it would have been too pricey for us, though. Our only complaint was that the bed was pretty uncomfortable--very solid-feeling.

We were on our first visit to Mackinaw City (Michigan as a whole) and very much enjoyed our stay at the Brigadoon. The staff was exceptional and added that 'something special' to the stay with their attention to detail and kindness. The food was exceptional - beyond our expectation. Each morning we started out with a great cup of their own Bayview Blend coffee and then enjoyed a hot, gourmet breakfast. We looked forward to taking a break each afternoon to enjoy freshly baked cookies and drink. We skipped dessert each night at dinner so we would have room for whatever wonderful treat the staff had planned for dessert that night.

The staff was also very helpful in providing suggestions for local activities and dining. We especially enjoyed our dinner at Legs Inn (about 30 min drive from the B&B). The location along Lake Michigan was amazing and we enjoyed a wonderful meal on their outside dining area.

Without a doubt, we will look forward to staying at the Brigadoon the next time we are in the area and will highly recommend it to any friends or family visiting the area.

We loved the Brigadoon! It is beautiful, quiet, and perfectly located. The breakfasts were gourmet quality, and the afternoon snacks, and evening desserts were always a special treat. The staff is friendly and eager to be helpful. The Brigadoon is a bit pricey, but it was absolutely worth the splurge.

Room Tip: The second floor rooms have private balconies which are great to relax on, but the stairs are quite...

Went to Brigadoon B&B for our 25th anniversary. This was our first B&B ever. The house is beautiful outside including flowers and gardening (even had baby bunnies living under the bushes). The room was just as described. Large king size bed, sitting room with frig, micro, and 2 wine glasses and very large bathroom with jacuzzi tub. We were in room 101 - the basic and cheapest they offer. The front desk staff was very nice, friendly and helpful. (although could have had better knowledge of area restaurants when asked for recommendations.) The ladies in the kitchen were the BEST! Breakfast, cookies and dessert are out of this world! It was our anniversary but I think my husband would have married one for her cooking! LOL The oatmeal pie was to die for. The convenience of walking distance to shops, Sheplers Ferry, and beach was wonderful. A great weekend away!

Room Tip: We were off the lobby but there was no noise, you do hear the water when run above you, but not wort...

The rooms are large and clean. We had a large suite with large bathroom. Staff are exceptional! They were very friendly, but not intrusive. They served a good breakfast and wonderful dessert in the evening.

I stayed in Rm 301 and paid a premium rate. The house itself is beautiful. It is large and very visually appealing. When pulling up the first thing we saw was a worker outside wearing very tattered clothing, so it wasn't a great first impression. The bricks leading up the the office were not maintained and had weeds in between them. The lady behind the counter was very sweet and helpful. We had to climb up a lot of stairs to get to our room and found our room without AC turned on. With it being on the 3rd floor, it took a little while to cool down as it was just a small window air conditioner build into the wall. For the price of the room, I was not impressed. It did have a fireplace, jacuzzi, and private balcony. However, we saw two bugs on the bed, the smoke detector was detached and laid on the counter (leaving a nice hole in the ceiling), there was a picture hiding something on the wall (however it wasn't hiding it all the way), and the sprinkler system piping was run open along the ceiling (a cosmetic bummer!). The bed was pretty hard and we didn't sleep well at all. The bathroom was very clean and modernized and the jacuzzi tub was great! We had to mess with the cables on the TV to get the fuzz out of the cable and the TV was an older style unit. The room also has a weird shaped ceiling and makes it a tad bit difficult to get from the turret sitting room (which was awesome!) to the rest of the room (you have to watch your head). Breakfast was a peach stuffed french toast with fresh fruit, coffee/tea, and some delicious sausage. It was all served to you as you sit and was very quick! The breakfast was by far the best part of the stay. The location is GREAT! located basically in downtown Mackinaw City and right around the corner from Sheplers fairy docks. My problems were mostly of value. I was charged a very premium price for a room that was not up to par in quality. If you're going to offer a room that expensive, on the third floor, at least turn on the air! All in all, I would stay there again if the price was better. The staff was VERY nice and added a friendly atmosphere.

Room Tip: Did not feel rm 301 was a premium room.
