My husband and 3 kids visited Stonecliffe for 2 nights this summer. We stayed in the Summer House. The room was great, had a lakeview suite with a huge balcony, not to mention the air conditioning! Very comfortable beds and up to date decor. Every morning there is a complimentary continental breakfast. All 5 of us ate there and enjoyed our breathtaking views overlooking the bluff and Mackinaw Bridge every morning. The food was excellent. We spent most of our day at the outdoor pool. Stonecliffe is the only resort besides Mission Pointe that has an outdoor pool. Huge Complaint (and probably the only one) ---Seems like a lot of younger Island workers took up most the sun chairs and were smoking and drinking at the pool. It was a little uncomfortable at times with my young kids, I still do not understand how they allow these kids to hang out at the pool as if they are on Spring Break!
There is a great little poolside bar for drinks and food while swimming. My husband and I ate at the restaurant one night outside on the patio. It was beautiful. I think it is the most awesome view in Michigan. We each had the filet and were very pleased. The sunsets are just something not to miss while up there.
To be up on the bluff is great because you are so close to the bike trails, golf course, airport, and many other attractions near the top of the island. The grounds are so well kept and just beautiful to walk around.
The ride to the Inn from the town takes about 20 minutes on bike. But well worth the time. The scenery is amazing. You can also take a horse drawn taxi to town for around $7 pp one way.
Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and would return again. The staff is overly friendly and so willing to please.
