Our stay was in a room with a single queen bed and our 15 month old was along and was provided with a pack and play to sleep in. The inn is a beautiful Victorian style building and decor, over all it was not fancy place but well kept. The best part is the second story balcony with seating for about 30 people. The location is just outside of the downtown area only a 5 minute walk.
The walls are a bit thin so you can hear other people in their rooms and walking down the hall. It's not enough to keep you awake but is there. The bathroom floor was very slippery when wet and was a danger for our son. I am 6' tall and had to bend down to get under the shower head.
Each morning a full breakfast was set out Buffett style. The food was mediocre and nothing special ( all food service frozen type food ) but worked out since we did not have to find breakfast in town.
Overall it is an average hotel but take into account the location and the front porch takes it up a couple notches. We would stay again just for those extra benefits.
- 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
