My girlfriend and I had spent a week in Nova Scotia, with a real whirlwind driving tour, and we were ending our vacation at Mackinac Island at the Bay View. With no cars, horse driven buggy rides, a relaxing facial and massage, fantastic food, reading looking over the bay we were ready to go back and face the real world

We had a wonderful two night stay last week. The accommodations were lovely!. The breakfast was delicious. A huge unexpected bonus was dessert (included in basic fee) every night at 8PM in the dining room. The first night was a huge piece of cheesecake that was warmed (a delightful touch!). The second night was strawberry shortcake with two huge scoops of ice cream. The staff all were very helpful and very friendly! This B&B is convenient to the ferries. And we were able to store our packages at the front desk after checkout time until we were ready to board the ferry. A delightful experience! We will be back.

Arriving later then expected due to the weather we were very happy for a warm and cozy room. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. The next day they directed us to the bike rental shop next door and off we went on the 8 mile trip around the island which was beautiful.

Best breakfast, incredible desserts every night, quiet and comfy. Gorgeous harbor views, close to town (walking distance) - truly the best place on the Island! We will be back to enjoy Bay View and your wonderful staff. Thanks to Harold - he is the best! Rosie the chef did an awesome job on breakfast; the presentation beautiful; Angie and Arlene happily serenaded us all each morning with familiar tunes!

Just wanted to drop you a note to say our recent visit to Bayview (Sept 3 - 7) was wonderful, as usual. We love Mackinac and staying at the Bayview Inn. Breakfast was scrumptious each morning and waking up to the wonderful view of the harbor from the windows of room 201 was all we remembered.

As this was our 4th visit to Bayview, we just can't seem to get enough. Rose and Howard make breakfast a delight. Dessert is always wonderful and a great time to get to know your fellow guests.

Counting the days til we can return...and make no mistake, we certainly will.

My husband and I were on the Island and decided to stay another night at the last minute and were lucky enough to get a room. This is "THE" place to stay if you want to relax at a nice, clean comfortable place where they totally pamper you. The view of the lake and the Marina is so amazing, you can relax from the balcony as you watch the different boats pass by. The staff is amazing, they are very friendly and attentive to your needs. The food is outstanding..the evening sweets were an added treat. You are close to town but far enough that you are not disturbed by all the activity. We will go back and stay again..and I recommend it if you are looking for a nice, clean comfortable place to stay that is very affordable.

My husband and I stayed two nights and the Bay View the last week in August. Thank you to Becky for making our 25th anniversary extra special. The house is quaint, well maintained, has a beautiful view from the balcony and the dining room. The whole house is decorated in Victorian style which made me feel I was "somewhere in time". The meals were excellent including peach french toast and quiche. The front porch is a wonderful place to sit, enjoy the garden and watch the tourists (and horses) walk by. I would highly recommend the Bay View Bed and Breakfast and be sure to get back home for dessert.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 102. There was no view, but honestly I don't think we needed a view since the...
