“Mackinac home away from home”
Reviewed March 16, 2010

My husband and I have stayed at Bay View three years in a row now. Last October, we shared our love for Mackinac and Bay View with two other couples...it was the best!. The staff , the food, and overall hospitality could not have been better. We organized our own golf tounement and plan to do it again this year. Head chef Rose, prepared a special surprise reward cake for the winning team and all helped celebrate. Bay View and the entire staff went overboard with southern hospitality. We can't wait to return again this season.
Thank you !

Hy husband and I were very excited because we were going to be able to spend an entire week on our favorite island! The year before we checked out a room at the Bay View to make sure that it was nice. We were shown a good sized room and were assured that all the rooms were "wonderful". Well we ended up with a room that was about ten by ten. It was too small for the owners to have actually called it a "room". Closet would have represented it more accurately. Luckily we kept busy out of the horrible room and found things to keep us busy outside.DO NOT STAY here if you spend a night on the island. We have stayed at quite a few hotels and and have NEVER had this dilemma.

Great location, right on the main street, next to a park and only 1/4 mile wallk to the commercial area of the main street We had the largest room in the place with a kitchen area, private porch, and a hottub, and overlooking the harbor. It was lovely. Outstanding, gourmet breakfast. We looked at a couple of other places while we were visiting, and concluded that we would return to this one.

We chose Bay View for our late September wedding and could not be happier with that choice. The B & B was beautiful and the staff was wonderful. I arrived the night before the wedding quite late in the evening with my 15 year old daughter and there was someone waiting there for us. The next morning we went down to breakfast and were served immediately. They serve you quite a lot of food which was delicious. The day of the wedding I found that my wedding dress was wrinkled. Rose and Wendy were wonderful and borrowed a steamer from a dress shop and steamed the wrinkles out of my dress for me. The morning after the wedding my husband and I were served breakfast in bed!!
We are planning on staying there again when we go back to the Island for our anniversary.

This was a nice, clean hotel. It is close to downtown. It is easy to get to whether you walk or ride. People were very nice and friendly.

My sister and I stayed at the BayView for our "sister" trip In June. It was the most perfect location, right next to the Marina. The rooms were small but had all that you would need. The help was fantastic and very helpful. The breakfast was the best I have ever had. Each evening they make a delightful homemade dessert. Make sure you are "home" in time to enjoy that. I would stay again without hesitation.

Our Suite had an awesome view of the marina. We had great breakfasts, cookies and lemonade in the afternoon and the piece de resistance was the desserts every night.
