Picked this inn based on location, value and Trip Advisor awards -- and was not disappointed. If you want good location in town, good value in an expensive market, and great, friendly service, this is the place to stay on Mackinac Island.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are the smallest but most convenient (no stairs) to breakfast, mid-afternoon hospitality treats and the front door.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Inn during the month of August 2012 and had a great first experience. This was our third year in a row on the Island for vacation but our first year at Cottage Inn. Rich and Marge do an excellent job from the welcoming to the room to breakfast to conversation. We traveled with another couple and this was their first visit to Mackinac. I'm glad our reservations were at the Cottage Inn.

Having visited last Dec., we decided to return again for our 10th Anniversary! We love the island and our stay at The Cottage Inn simply enhanced the entire experience. Rich and Marge are the perfect host and hostess, attentive to every need and helpful to everyone at all times. They are a lovely couple. The breakfast was fantastic and the rooms were very comfortable and clean. We cannot wait to return! Thank you Rich and Marge for making our anniversary celebration so memorable!

We had such a great time and Rich and Marge were great hosts! Each morning there was a an amazing breakfast waiting for us and it wasn't just bagels and toast. We had muffins, fantastic egg dishes, hard boiled eggs and all kinds of great foods. Our room wasn't just clean it was immaculate upon our arrival and because we were there celebrating our anniversary there was fudge waiting for us :) The location was perfect. Close to downtown but very quiet. Both nights when we came back we sat on the porch to relax and could not believe how quiet it was. I would highly recommend the Cottage Inn!

Beautiful and clean little place. Located just off Main St, so it's quiet, yet close to everything. Rich and Marge will suggest places to eat, which dish recommendations, and they have coupons for free appetizers, etc. The room was clean, bed was comfortable, and nice cool air conditioning. The breakfast was delicious and afternoon snacks for free! We will stay here again! Highly recommended!
