“Quick way to educate your kids on how tough their chores could be.”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

This is included in the price of your fort pass. The old house has three areas; crafts, kitchen and blacksmith. It might take a little prompting, but your kids can learn a lot in just a few minutes.

The historical information is worth the visit. There was not one thing I disliked, and would return again.

“Biddle House”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

If you like Williamsburg, VA you will find this, and the other completely original structures on Mackinac Island, delightful.

Plan on spending the night at Stonecliffe, the Island House, or the Iroquois. After the last ferry leaves you will find yourself back in the 19th century for, probably, the first time in your life. It's a beautiful experience you will never forget.

“I knew more history of the Biddles than the people giving the tour.”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

Visit of the Biddle House was interesting, but I knew quite a bit more history of the Biddles, being a descendent of the Biddles. What few questions I did have, they could not answer. I love history and was very discouraged that I could not learn much more here.
