My wife and I had had the wonderful experience of staying at MacKenzie's during the recent Shelburne Whirlygig Festival. We had never been to the area before and this was simply a whimsical, last minute trip for us. When we booked the room the night before our arrival, Sandra our host informed us we would like our accommodations. This was... More

We attended a family reunion with approx 30 people and it was a great time. We had no noise complaints, although we were not rowdy, there was lots of laughter. There was room to set up 3 washer toss games also. I stayed in a two bedroom cottage and the only thing is I wish there was a bit more... More

This is our fourth visit to MacKenzie's and every time is an absolute treat! Sandra is amazing! The first time we stayed here was three years ago and we rented a small cottage for the night. It was very clean and cozy. The second time we rented the suite situated directly off the pool. It has a beautiful king size... More

Mackenzie's was a very nice stay, clean, and well organized. While it appeared to be older, it was nicely renovated and everything worked well. The kitchen had everything for a short stay, the living room had a comfortable swivel rocker and a nice leather chair and 2-seat sofa. There was a hard wood floor in the bedrooms and living room,...

Just a quick overnight but had a great king room upstairs which included a kitchen and large bathroom with a huge tub! Was a bit warm in the night but the bed was very comfortable. Owners were very nice, breakfast was all you really need and good coffee! Would stay again for sure if we are back that way.

We were touring the south shore and stayed at one of the two-bedroom cabins at Mackenzie's. The cabin was clean and comfortable for two couples. The breakfast was adequate and got us on our way. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
