Cloghaun is now my #1 choice of B&Bs on Mackinac Island. It's priced reasonably for the island, especially if you go early or later in the season. The front porch really makes this B&B special. Spacious, great comfy furniture, excellent people and horse viewing, a slice of a water view - it's just a perfect place to while away the time and drink some wine. The breakfast was great. Most rooms have private baths. We had the Anna - two double beds. The two rooms with shared baths did look quite small. The other rooms I saw looked lovely. Common areas are spacious and clean. Hosts are nice and professional. Most guests are older and the B&B is very quiet, especially in the evening. You can get a great night's sleep here, and feel quite pampered.

Room tip: Rooms with shared baths are small but the least expensive.

We're sorry to hear you didn't completely enjoy your stay with us at Cloghaun B & B in June. We strive to provide an authentic Victorian experience for all of our guests, but understand this may not be what all island visitors would embrace. For those looking to get away from the outside world for a short time, historic Cloghaun fits the bill perfectly! The oldest family owned B & B in Michigan, Cloghaun will continue to provide a positive experience for all of our guests that may last a lifetime. We thank you for your perspective on Cloghaun and hope that you will stay with us again when you visit Mackinac Island!

Really having no experience with B&B's ... this one was very sweet. We are not really B&B-ers, so we pretty much kept to ourselves. We only stayed one night but I guess check-in ends at 9pm and we came just a little after. I felt awful, but the lady there (not the innkeeper) stayed late waiting for us and took time to show us around when we got there. The room was a bit small but expected for a B&B but the bathroom was very large and had a heater which was a pleasant surprise. The breakfast didn't have a huge selection but everything that was out was good and you could go back for seconds. I don't think we'll be back to Mackinac (not really our thing) but if we did we would stay at Cloghaun again.

Beautiful Historic B&B on Mackinac Island. We stayed in October 2015 for a fall get away and had a wonderful stay. The Cloghaun is located on Main Street, an easy walk from the ferry dock. The breakfast was good, a combination of homemade treats and cereals, fresh juices and coffee. We were there in October, so there is less hustle and bustle on the island. I would stay here again.

We stayed at the Cloghaun for two nights and loved watching the carriages and people from the porch. You could even see the water from some chairs. The breakfasts were egg casseroles and a variety of continental breakfast food, so there was plenty to eat. If we decide to stay on the island next time we will stay here again!

The Cloghaun is clean and has unique antiques. There were no safety bars in the tub and a steep staircase up to the majority of the rooms. The Inn's location is close to town and ferry dock but on Market Street which is a 24 hour carriage route.

Having visited many b & b's, our expectations of the innkeeper were higher than we experienced. Upon arrival mid afternoon, we had to track down the innkeeper who never introduced himself.

No information about the area or home itself were offered. We had to ask specific questions. The innkeeper's interactions with us were minimal.

The food was good but breakfast was serve yourself and nothing going more remarkable than a hotel's continental breakfast. It was virtually the same both days. The innkeeper was not present to ask nor were there labels which might help those guests with food allergies. Coffee was first available at 7:15, but breakfast was 8 to 10 am which was somewhat late for daytime activities on the Island.

The second day, a new gentleman appeared during breakfast preparations and the meal, appeared to be an innkeeper, yet had no interaction with guests and texting on his phone.

Our room was comfortable but common areas were lacking. The library with the only tv was only available limited hours.

As we left breakfast the last morning, we asked the innkeeper where we should leave our key, which he answered but never inquired as to how we liked our stay.
