Travelers' Choice
Pine Cottage is one of Mackinac Island's treasured hideaways, quietly tucked along Bogan Lane just steps away from Main Street, Lake Huron, nature trails, and downtown shopping, dining, attractions, and nightlife. The unique Victorian farmhouse décor and design of each room with rustic hardwood floors lend itself to the quaint cottage's much-beloved country character. Choose from 14 traditional one-queen or one-king sized bed guest rooms with either private or shared bathrooms, including an antique clawfoot tub. One multi-room suite will accommodate up to six guests. Built in 1870, Pine Cottage was one of the first hotels on historic Mackinac Island. Over the years, it has welcomed some famous guests, including writer Ernest Hemingway and baseball player Ty Cobb. See for yourself what's been drawing visitors here for centuries. Reserve your Mackinac Island getaway today!

DO NOT TAKE ANY VALUABLES OR LEAVE THEM IN YOUR ROOM. I placed a ring that was an heirloom from my Grandmother in the back drawer of our room. (It was cold out and the ring was slipping on my finger). We checked out and I was horror stricken to find I had forgotten it. We called while on the Ferry to the mainland and told Andrew & Emily about leaving it and where they could find it and they said they couldn’t find it. I was beside myself. Seriously people! Someone has stolen it and I am heart broken! None of the management mentioned checking into this for me or really questioning the maids. I think this has happened before because most organizations hide these issues from the public. I have reported this as stolen to the police (who have told me Pine Cottage is not cooperating with them) and will continue to make inquiries and will also be coming back to inquire personally because someone is not trustworthy there. I would encourage the management to take this situation seriously because you do have someone stealing on your staff. I don’t EVER complain like this because I’ve enjoyed my stay in the past (stayed with my daughter in July but didn’t have any valuables on that trip). But when management blows me off and says that their employee’s are all trustworthy when my ring was stolen, this is WITHOUT A DOUBT, a company that does not take action for crimes committed on their property. Look into it Pine Cottage! You need to report this to your local authorities as well and show that you are serious about your guests security when they pay to stay with you!

After receiving your call that you had misplaced your ring, we searched your room, checked with the housekeeper, and looked in the lost and found to no avail. Thousands of guests bring thousands of pieces of luggage with their belongings to our property each season without incident. Pine Cottage has one housekeeper who had access to your room. She has been a dedicated and reputable employee of this company for well over a decade. There isn't a sliver of doubt in our minds that your ring was not stolen from your room. We certainly understand your heartbreak in having misplaced your heirloom; however, I can say with the utmost confidence that if someone did found it here, we would have made arrangements to get it back to you. If your ring is found here, we certainly will contact you right away. It would be greatly appreciated if you would let us know if, by any chance, your ring is found in a suitcase crevice or pocket as has happened to guests in the past.

Our overall experience of the Island was superb! But this B&B left a lot to be desired. We recognize COVID-19 has influenced some aspects of this type of service but shouldn’t have affected it to the extent that it did. Dead hanging baskets greeted us...plants around island at other locales were gorgeous! Staff friendly enough but unprofessional. Prepackaged store bought breakfast items left a lot to be desired. Microwave frequently didn’t work (repeated error message). Would be worth it to pay a little more and be satisfied with your experience.

We got to check in early; that was the best part. Trash bags were piled up next to the porch, that never got picked up. We had to wait 15 min in the dining area til our room was ready. We noticed the place didn’t smell great, and the microwave had dirty fingerprints all over it. My husband mentioned to the young lady behind the desk that the trash container by the coffee was overflowing. She emptied it but never put a liner in. She said she didn’t know where they are kept. The shared bathroom with claw foot tub converted to shower was not ideal. The tiny sink had no water pressure, no soap and no towels. So we are handling knobs from guests who haven’t washed their hands after using toilet. 🤮 We fled; went to Inn at Mackinac. Didn’t care if we lost money. It was bad.

We stayed 4 nights at the sister property - The Island House - before moving here for the last night. The Island House transferred our luggage as a courtesy which was awesome. I will say that if you have a wife who packs like mine, a very heavy suitcase and three flights of stairs is pretty daunting. I was offered porter service to the room but opted to be an idiot male and lug the luggage myself. We left early before the breakfast but the accommodations are so cute and clean (clawfoot tub)- even the shared bathroom on the third floor (we opted to go cheap on our last night). We will be returning!

Good -Location is close to downtown, but off the beaten path so low noise -Room was small but clean -Bed was very comfortable -Contactless check-in worked well. Communication prior to check in was good. Bad -Shared bathroom had worlds smallest sink with barely a trickle of water from the faucet. Makes washing hands or brushing teeth difficult -No mirror in the bedrooms (we had to use the camera on our phones for grooming) -Breakfast was bad. I was able to get a 1/2 cup of coffee on day 1, a full cup on day2 but no sugar available. Tea bags were available but no hot water was provided (hint...there is an ice machine by the stairs, can melt ice in the microwave for tea). No juice or water available. Food choices were limited and poor quality. Available were prepackaged cereal, prepackaged vending machine Danish, frozen jimmy dean biscuits, yogurt and bruised bananas. No attendant was available -Cleanliness of common areas was not good. Lots of cobwebs in the stairwell. Bags of trash and cleaning supplies were left in the hallway all weekend. -The shared bathroom is small, but clean. The water pressure in the shower varied from low to zero.
