The week of Oct. 19th, we were making good time on our way back from Niagara Falls, Canada, and decided to see if we could wrangle a room for one night on Mackinac Island. After calling several hotels with no luck, we almost gave up but we made one more call to the Chippewa Hotel and got a $70 room.... More

Pink Pony restaurant was very good and easily assessable. Bike ride around the island was enjoyable and tea at The Grand Hotel was a... More

The Chippewa Hotel is fantastic!! A beautiful refurbished boutique hotel with all the amenities! Stayed here for the first time one year ago, and didn't hesitate to return to the same location again this fall. The rooms are very cute and the restaurant and bar are top notch. I also love the Island Schrimshander gift store in the lobby. Everyone... More

Fabulous location, fabulous room. The restaurant has always been our first stop on the island (it has the best view of the water and a great staff...thanks Aaron our personal breakfast waiter!), so we were excited to stay here this trip. And we were not disappointed! The double-twin room was perfect for my sister and I, with comfy beds (and... More

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. We went up to Mackinac for a benefit for my wife's brother who was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. The benefit was held in the Pink Pony Bar & Restaurant which is located in the Chippewa Hotel. Everything was top notch. Family members received reduced rates at the hotel. The bar... More

Although we have traveled to mackinac island for years, we have now stayed ON the island for multiple nights, two years. Both times we enjoyed harbor-view stays at the Chippewa Hotel. You simply cannot go wrong. The staff, amenities, accommodations are all spectacular. If you're planning a trip - don't hesitate to book with at the Chippewa Hotel.

The view from our room (419) was gorgeous overlooking the fort and the water. Beautiful - clean - comfortable room. My husband and I both noticed how sparkly the light fixtures in the hallways were. Excellent hotel and wait staff. Food is great - fish/cheese chowder to die for. And hanging out in the Pink Pony - say no more... More
