One of us had recently had foot surgery, so it was fun riding the carriage with Babe leading the way for us in October 2016. We saw parts of the Island where we could not venture by walking: the Governor's Mansion, cemeteries, Fort Mackinac and the grand hotel. Friendly staff and well worth the trip. Oh, it was interesting that... More

What a precious experience it was to go around some of the Island on a 'drive it yourself carriage'. I am experienced with horses but have never driven. Our horse Tom was wonderful and knew his job well (he didn't need driving - he knew where he was going). Jim met up with us to make sure we were confident... More

This was a wonderful experience. This was our first drive yourself carriage ride. The trip was well mapped out for us. The employees were very helpful explaining everything that we needed to know and expect from our trip. The marked route was very relaxing and Mabel followed our instructions, making our experience one that we'll remember. We especially enjoyed our... More

My wife and had been wanting to do this the last 2 trips to the island but the weather was too rainy. 9/21/16 was a perfect sunny cool morning so we walked up to Jack's and rented a 2 person buggy. Unfortunately, the road paving project prevented us from doing the LONG route around and thru the park, but the... More

The last week of Aug. 2016 we decided to rent a horse and buggy. It was so much fun. It was great to do something we have never done before. Our horse was Bud and true he was very very very slow but, that was what was nice about it as well. Its like life slowed down for just a... More

If you want the best experience get a guide. Ours was Isaac. He was full of information not only about the island but about horses. We went on some not so well traveld trails. What a wonderful morning. We feel more confident on horses. Staff is personable and friendly.highly recommended family run.

We have rented a horse and buggy from Jack's several times and the owner is great! We go over the horses we have had in the past and he always selects a great one for us. This time we had Ned...he was a beautiful horse and gave us a great ride. This is such a fun and unique experience, always... More

We'd looked up the options for getting around the island before we arrived and thought hiring a carriage from Jack's looked the best bet for the four of us. Glad to say we were right! The horses were obviously well cared for and able to cope with a novice driver - thank you Shorty.

As a professional carriage driver for over 20 years I was bit hesitent to take the drive your own horse and carriage option, but after carefully inspecting the barn, staff, horses, and equipment I felt fully confident that this is a well run carriage tour company and the horses were amazingly fit and well cared for. Our drive it yourself... More
