“Pleasant and a good value”
Reviewed September 9, 2008

My wife, five-year old son and I spent a very pleasant night at Haan’s in the Colonel William Preston Suite on August 25, 2008. Bud and Judy took good care of us, welcoming us to the Inn and holding our bags while our room was made ready so we could go and explore the island.

The Inn is located just a few blocks from the main strip, a short five-minute walk. We found it to be very conveniently located; close enough so you could enjoy town and far enough that you didn’t get all the crowds.

The suite was nice, with plenty of room to spread out and a full kitchen included. It’s up a flight of stairs, so if you have mobility issues, you might consider staying in a different room. They put a roll-away bed in the room for our son and he was pleased with that.

We would have been pleased to stay in that room for a few days as it had many of the conveniences of home. As I mentioned, the kitchen was nice and had a sink, dishware and silverware, a refrigerator/freezer, microwave and a kitchen table for four. One of the little windows in the kitchen looked out on Main Street, so you could watch people go by.

The bathroom had a tub/shower combo and was well lit. Water pressure was fine and there was plenty of hot water.

The sleeping area was separated from the kitchen and bathroom area by the stair well. It was quiet and comfortable after a long day exploring the island.

The grounds around the Inn are well kept and there are nice places to sit and enjoy the sunshine or just watch the world go by. A bike rack is included so you don’t need to worry about parking any rented bikes.

Breakfast was nice, with coffee, juice, fruit cocktail, bagels, cereals, muffins and coffee cake. The best part of breakfast was sitting down at the long table and chatting with the other guests as well as Bud and Judy.

We will definitely stay at Haan’s again in the future. It offers a very good value for Mackinac Island, where many things tend to be on the pricey side.

My husband and I have stayed at B and B's for about 25 years. We have many experience to compare our stay at Haan's to this past weekend. The inn keepers were pleasent but we found them to be unaccomodating to a small need that we had that concerned our religious requirements on a Sunday before attending Mass. The request concerned coming to breakfast at 8am instead of 8:30am. Since they did not prepare a cooked breakfast, this should not have been a problem. All foods were help yourself. We gave them several occasions to meet our need with no consideration. The room was lovely and clean. The location was perfect. Sorry to say that Haan's lost big points with us when it would have taken so little effort to say " come down at
8am, it won't be a problem."

We were very pleased with our stay at Haan's 1830 Inn. When we arrived at the Inn, we were greated by Bud, who showed us to our room, the Governor Cass Suite. The room was clean and the decor was charming. Throughout our stay, Bud and his wife Judy made every effort to make our stay enjoyable for us and our three young children. The price for our stay was very reasonable; the cost was the same or less than what we would have paid in Mackinaw City. Best of all for us was the fact that the Inn was close to town (about a 5 minute walk) but not in town, which kept us away from the bustle and bar noise. We will definitely stay there the next time we go to the island.

A couple of things to keep in mind. There are no hair dryers in the rooms, so if that is important to you, you will want to bring one along. Also, the shower had great water pressure, but it did not have anti-scald shower valves (not sure if it was just this room or all the rooms), so be prepared for some extremes in temperature if another guest is using water at the same time.

  • Liked — The location and the friendly staff
  • Disliked — The size of the bed--I think it was full or queen and I wish it was a king; very cramped

Mackinac Island abounds with B&Bs, and we have stayed at several. Haan's was not the best, but it was quite pleasant and we can recommend staying here. The location is close to the main tourist drag, but far enough away to avoid the major noise and heavy crowds (although outdoor events at the church next door can be noisy, they don't last late at night). The rooms are lovingly decorated and very attractive. The very best feature of this property is the wide shady porches on both levels, where it is very pleasant to sit, read a book, and watch people and horses go by. The breakfast breads are yummy and fresh, although during our stay the fruit was canned, a disappointment. Two minor peeves - no hair dryers in the rooms, and no access to coffee or tea except during breakfast. But the hosts are friendly and welcoming, and provide a good atmosphere.

For ten consecutive years I stayed a weekend at Haan's Inn. The innkeepers became extended family. Each year we were treated like royalty. They went above and beyond to make my stay special. Every day is a beautiful day on Mackinac Island when you stay at Haan's 1830 Inn.

The rooms are terrific and the inn is off of the Main Drag and therefore does not have the noise from the bars.

Make certain to book VERY early in the year. Now that Haan's has hit the web they book in very quickly.

We stayed at Haan's B & B on June 12, 2004. The room was very nice and extremely clean. Some of the rooms have two bedrooms. The owners were great. We brought are two girls ages 6 & 11 and they loved it.

I would have given it five stars, but the breakfast didn't have a hot dish.

Take Arnold's Ferry becasue they will take your luggage to your hotel for you. (Shepler's doesn't)

You have to eat at WAFFLE WORLD!!! (Ask for the WACKY Waffle, it's to die for!)

SPANKY'S CAFE is a cool clothing store for guys and Gals. It has the only car on the island.
