“Memories of the Bayview Will Bring Tears to Your Eyes!”
Reviewed August 29, 2004

We honeymooned in the Master Suite of the Bayview June 30, 2002. We visited all the other bed and breakfasts on the island while riding bikes or walking. None of them even came close to the Bayview. Our private balcony overlooking the bay was wonderful for the 4th of July fireworks. We'd open our balcony door in the morning to the sound of horse hooves and the drifting aroma of the anticipated breakfast. On several nights, we bought dinner in town to bring back to our balcony. The friendly staff even provided us with their silver and china and we used my wedding bouquet as our center piece all week. We tossed the flowers off the Bayview dock on our last night. We never missed the nightly dessert, except for the night that a carriage picked us up to go to the Grand Hotel for dancing. Our favorite framed picture from our trip is the one of the two of us waiting for that carriage on a wicker sofa on the front porch of the Bayview. The Grand Hotel was booked the week of our honeymoon....what a blessing that was! Thanks for the memories! Tom and Joni Beicher

Wow! Bay View was everything we had hoped for and more from the staff to accomodations. We stayed in room 207, which overlooked the marina and main street. The balconey was charming and the room was decorated beautifully. The upgrade was well worth the price. The staff was great and the food was incredible. As we checked in we were reminded that fresh cookies were coming out of the oven at 3:00 pm and that dessert would be served from 8:00-9:30. Breakfast the following day was delicious. The Bay View is very cheerful and a great place to escape. We celebrated my wife's 40th birthday in Mackinac Island. Highly recommend!

I've stayed at the Bayview twice, and both times were just wonderful. Actually, during our last stay at the Bayview, in June '03 my fiance proposed on the balcony of our room, overlooking the harbor. It was the most beautiful and perfect spot for it, and I will never ever forget it! We love the porch overlooking the harbor, and the coffee. I make it at home and everytime I smell it brewing, it takes me back to our wondeful times at the Bayview Inn. The rooms are gorgeous, the staff is friendly and helpful...one of the island's best!

Excellent, attractive accomodations. Easy to find, easy walking distance from ferries and main shopping district, tours, etc. Staff were friendly and did everything they could to make the stay pleasant, including accomodating special dietary conditions and adjusting breakfast times to allow early participation in special events. Also were very helpful in arranging the booking of the rooms, as we had one room for only one night and, for that one night, we worked out an arrangment for six adults to stay in 2 rooms. Highly recommended.
