Just spent a weekend at the BayView for our anniversary. What a wonderful experience! The staff was great! I couldn't do the food justice if I tried, so I will just say one thing...walking in on Friday and smelling the chocolate cake baking for dessert that night sold me right there. I will definitely be back and have told all of my friends about our experience. Great location, beautiful rooms and friendly helpful staff...couldn't ask for anything more.

Our stay at Bay View was fabulous!! It is such a cozy place to stay! I think the thing that stands out to me the most is the food. For the price of the room you get an awesome FULL breakfast, cookies in the afternoon and a very large dessert in the evening. We actually planned our daily activities around the food...:) The veranda/dining room was filled with sunlight and looked over the harbor, a grassy lawn and Fort Mackinac. If you do not want to eat your breakfast in the dining room they will put it on a tray for you to take back to your room. They offer their own blend of coffee all day for free. We enjoyed it so much we bought some to take home. Everytime I smell that coffee I want to go back.

Everyone was very personable and accomodating. We stayed in their cheapest and probably smallest room. We had A LOT of stuff so we were pretty cramped. They did remove one of the chairs to give us more room and that helped. We had plans to stay 3 nights, but we loved it so much that we stayed an extra night and skipped some of our other vacation activities. I will most definitely return. I want to stay at some of the other places on the island, but I love Bay View so much that I just can't talk myself into trying something new. The next time I go I would like to get a bigger room. I would rather stay at Bay View in a small room than somewhere else where I could get a bigger room for the same price. I really can not say enough good things about it!!!

We had stayed at the Bayview 3 times prior to 2005 and thought it to be a great bed and breakfast in a fantastic location. The 4th time, however, we had a problem in our suite that I won't expand on. We were assured that an adjustment would be made. After several attempts over a year's period to get the promised adjustment we finally gave up. We missed staying at the Bayview this year. (See my review of the Iroqois) Prior to this experience we really enjoyed the great breakfast and thought the staff was excellent.

We spent one night at the Bay View Inn and had a wonderful time the staff was very kind and we loved Rosie the cook - the food was delicious from the cookies (hot from the oven) to the great breakfast. We would definitely come again.

My husband and I try to go to Mackinac Island twice a year - once in the summer and again at the end of the season, in October. We always stay at the Bay View. The Bay View is not like most hotels that are the same in every city in the world. The Bay View conveys the character of the Island, itself - unique, relaxed, well-cared for, romantic.
The fabrics and furniture in the bedrooms are lovely. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are the perfect size for snuggling in after a day of activity. The large dining room is a pretty place to eat wonderful food, chat with interesting guests and the staff, and linger over a great cup of coffee.
One of our favorite things - reading on the front porch in the wicker chairs, watching the people and the horses ease on by and listening to the bells ring at St. Anne's.
I can't wait to get back to the Bay View.
