We recently stayed one night, June 9, at this lovely Victorian house/hotel, during the Lilac Festival. Usually I spend hours online carefully reading all the reviews I can find on a product, but we decided just the night before that we would do this. We never thought we could afford spending a night on Mackinac Island, but The Inn made it very possible for us.
We arrived 3 hours before check-in, but we were immediately given the keys to our room. We were surprised to find we could even see some of the harbor from our "budget" room. The room was spotless, beds and pillows very comfortable. The entire staff was very hospitable and always put their customers first. We loved the new spa pool - a perfect thing to do after biking all day. The "continental" breakfast was a feast, not continental at all! The extra touches like a porter meeting you at the ferry, then evening cookies, and then muffins when we checked out make the customer feel special.
The only problem we had was with the 1-866 reservationist: When we arrived it was found that we had been given reservations for the Murray Hotel (owned by the same management), not the Inn. But the manager quickly put us at ease, made the corrections, and we soon had our room key. We will definitely go back here again.
- 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
