Great location- just a block from the shops and restaurants. Amazing views from the front porch! We were able to walk everywhere yet stay away from the crowds in town. We also enjoyed bikes from the on site rental shop.

Hotel's Favorite
This hotel is right in line with a high end boutique hotel yet retaining the charm for which it is known. The check-in was flawless and welcoming. The room was beautiful, well-appointed and spotlessly clean. The bedding was so comfortable and the shower actually had pressure! There was a refrigerator, coffee maker, ample towels and Beekman 1802 toiletries. The view from our room was beautiful. On the grounds in the evening were two chimera fire pits for people to gather around and the porches with rocking chairs was a great place to relax and enjoy the view of the water and marina. There are bicycle rentals immediately in front of the property. The hotel is an easy stroll to the busy downtown yet situated on the quieter end of Main Street. After staying many places on the Island, we would like to stay here again and will make a point to do so.

The Island House was a class act in facilitating the 2021 CMU Alumni gathering. Great hotel personnel. Comfortable, clean facility. CMU weekend package included utilizing additional Island House businesses that really complimented the program. Hope to have the opportunity to return.

The front porch is ideal for wine sipping and people watching. Pro tip - they do sell wine and porch snacks in the lobby if you don't want to run to the market! Our room on the 4th floor was a bit hard to get to (especially when lugging luggage), and felt like the little attic room it was. But, it's an old hotel so quirky rooms are to be expected. It was clean, and quaint.

This was hour first time staying downtown on the island. The Island House has a great location and view of the straits and lighthouses. Very convenient, yet not right in the center of the tourist activity. Our room was comfortable, though nothing special for the rates that you have to pay on the island - though we had a discounted rate we were still paying over $300 per night in October. We had breakfast each morning (we were there 3 nights) and dinner once. The meals in the 1852 Grill Room were all very good as was our service. The entire staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. We were disappointed that the Ice House BBQ back by the pool had closed a few weeks prior. Also, when we walked back that way toward the pool and the back lawn - the walkway and other surfaces had a lot of moss build-up. This combined with some clutter, etc. just led to a general feeling that there wasn't as much care being given to the property as you would expect for the location and rate.
