This inn was very accomodating when I first booked it months in advance. When we arrived, it was quaint and charming, with helpful staff at the desk at all times. The decor is a lot of antiques that are well maintained, the beds are comfortable and there are plenty of extra pillows. You can hear other room's plumbing at times, but that is a small price to pay for staying at such a great old place. There is plenty of seating on the porches and there is a wonderful "spa" on the back deck. It is heated and a cross between a swimming pool and a hot tub, with a water fall. The free breakfast is like nothing I have ever seen in a hotel. There is the waffle maker, toaster, hot scrambled eggs and sausage, and a chafing dish of real oatmeal served with brown sugar and chopped pecans. Different juices, cereals, and fresh fruit. And yogurt. Hot coffee, tea and chocolate were available at all times and there was a cheese and cracker tray set out every afternoon. Evenings the chamber maids went to each room with fresh baked cookies. Mackinac Island can be quite boisterous down town, but this Inn is just far enough up the street that you only hear the occasional clip clop of the passing horses. I highly recomend this place.
- 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
