We stayed here the last week of August 2016. The staff was really outstanding. I called the hotel at 7:00 PM and asked if they could get us in that night. They said yes and got us in. It was a beautiful place. The restaurant looked out over the harbor. The beds were so comfortable we all slept great. We... More

We stayed here for a 2nd time and it did not disappoint. We did have difficulty being able to book our room early in the year when we were using a gift certificate but once we got that issue settled, our stay was great! We requested a queen room on the 4th floor which requires taking an elevator and then... More

Was wonderful! I would recommend this hotel. Everyone was very helpful and made our stay a memorable weekend. The island is beautiful and the smell of fudge is marvelous. Taste good too! Take a bike trip around the island. It's a must do!

Our family of 7 stayed overnight at the Island House. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was decent sized and with the addition of a foldaway bed, fit all of us. Bathroom was miniscule (which is okay if you're just using it in the most basic of ways). We had two issues with the hotel. First, it was very expensive... More

I've been to Mackinac Island quite a few times and I have to stay this was by far my favorite accommodation!

Stayed here 3 days ago for 2 nts. Older property but charming. We had room 300, which was 'queens with delux view'. And it was a magnificent view of harbor!! Breakfasts were very fine. We would definitely stay here again but would stay more than 2 nights.

This lovely hotel overlooks the ocean and has a large veranda as well as a fireplace on the front llawn to sit by. The rooms are tastefully decoated and the service excellent. We had a great dinner in the hotel restaurant as well. One negative- the pool is in a seperate building reached by walking across a bridge.

We have stayed at the Island house many times. It is a great location. Charming and they serve a wonderful breakfast. Our room had been updated, however, the lobby needs a little sprucing up. Awesome having an indoor pool for the kids.
