We've visited Mackinac Island dozens and dozens of times in the past, but on our most recent trip, we had two firsts: 1) We visited just before the Christmas holiday 2) We stayed at the Cottage Inn. Although I had my doubts about travelling to the island in December (I envisioned a ferry ride that could suffer from the fate... More

Great experience staying at Cottage Inn having one of the best B&B breakfasts outside on the front porch. Loved the cozy "Bicycle Room" with its the high comfy bed with good linens. Rich and Marge, our enjoyable hosts, were very helpful and humorous. Most importantly on the day we were to depart the island, we left our baggage at the... More

This was our third time staying at the Cottage Inn off season. The Inn was again a wonderful spot to stay and relax. W missed not having snow, which makes it very magical. It was still worthwhile as the hosts Jean and John are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfast are great!

We choose to stay at Cottage Inn because friends told us what a great place it was, and reading the great reviews here on Trip Advisor. It has lived up to each of its Wonderful Reviews. We visited the Island for the Christmas Tree Lighting and Bazaar. We received an upgrade in our rooms due to a cancellation. Beautiful Rooms,... More

Our third stay at this lovely B&B was during the off-season in December. Located on Market Street, it is close to everything yet quietly tucked away from all of the hustle and bustle of Main Street. John and Jean are gracious and knowledgeable hosts, and we were warmly welcomed immediately upon arrival. A personal tour of the clean and well-maintained... More

We loved another visit staying at The Cottage Inn. We came for the annual Christmas Bazaar and had a great time. Our accommodations couldn't have been better! The rooms are immaculate and the breakfast is always delicious. It's located a short walk to the docks, Douds grocery store, and the bazaar at the community center. Also walked to a beautiful...

My sister in law and I stayed at the Cottage Inn last month. It was our first trip to the island and John was wonderful pointing out all of the highlights and places to eat. The Inn was beautiful. My only issue was we stayed in the A moment in time room which is right on the first floor. Since... More

My Fiance and I stayed in the Victorian Turret room, and were thrilled with the accommodations. (There was a mini-fridge in the room which was a great surprise since we had packed lunches to reduce our eating out.) The proprietors were always on top of things, making sure we had everything we needed on and after race day. The breakfast... More
