We came to Mackinac on the 4th night of a road trip for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. My only regret was that we did not spend more time there. We were greeted by a porter at the ferry dock who took our bags and took them to the Inn. When we arrived we were surprised by a complimentary upgrade. The room was roomy and well appointed. We could sleep with the windows open and hear the clickety-clack of the horses hoofs as they passed. We spent a lot of time sitting on the wrap-around porch watching the horses, bikes and people. I liked that it was a short walk away from the busy main street-but easy to get there if that's what you wanted to do. This will definitely be the place I will stay next time we come back to the Island. This was the best I have stayed here. Loved 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
