My husband stayed at the Inn at Stonecliffe the last week in August and had a great time. I chose this hotel b/c my husband insisted on staying somewhere that had a pool. We stayed in the "summer house" which is off to the side of the mansion and is more modern and air conditioned. Our room was spacious and had a nice view of the back of the propery, the lake and the Mackinac Bridge. It is a little ways from town which we thought was not going to be a big deal as we brought our bikes and expected to be biking a lot. What I didnt expect was the steep hill in front of the Grand Hotel that we had to walk our bikes up to get to where we were staying. Going down the hill was big fun, going up not so much. So I guess we got our exercise!! My only regret is that I didnt browse around the property more. The back yard had chairs facing the lake and a wooded area as well as a beautiful porch to relax on. The breakfast buffet in the morning was small but sufficient usually eggs, sausage, waffles, and danishes, which were all very good. Maybe some cut up melon and berries would have been nice instead of grapes and bananas in a bowl?
