I've gone up to Mackinac Island nearly every year since I was born and have stayed in a myriad of places up there, but this place just rocks. The location is excellent because it's close enough to downtown to still be able to walk everywhere (though I always bike), yet far enough at the edge of town to be quiet at night. It's charming and colorful, like most places on the island are and should be, the staff is friendly, it's clean, and has a POOL, which is rare for most of the island hotels. They also have refreshments (tea, coffee, lemonade, cheese & crackers, cookies) in the reception area and it's nice to get a drink and something to nibble on and sit out on their huge, old porch. Wi-fi was free and the breakfast was great (hot stuff, too!). The price was right and we simply enjoyed every minute.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The year was 1867, an era of horse-drawn carriages and ladies in bustles. Blacksmiths were crafting horse shoes in glowing forges. During this height of Victorian culture, the Inn on Mackinac was built. Known then as Chateau Beaumont in memory of the famous Army surgeon at Fort Mackinac, the Inn on Mackinac has retained its quaint, old fashioned charm. The Inn’s facilities have been updated to meet the needs of the modern traveler while preserving its colorful history. Today, completely remodeled and redecorated, this beautiful Victorian Inn opens its doors, where the very special charm of our family-run Inn awaits you. ... more less
