My daughter and I went to Mackinac Island for a mother/daughter trip. First time to the island for both of us. We loved the pictures of the Inn on Mackinac online and were not disappointed by the real thing. The staff was very kind and helpful - very willing to answer all our questions and even printed out our boarding passes for us the day we left. Our room was probably the smallest they have (we were traveling on a budget) but it was perfect for just the 2 of us - a double bed and a nice sized bathroom. We enjoyed the hot breakfast and the afternoon snack of lemonade and cheese/crackers. And the chocolate chip cookies in the evening made us feel special! The warm pool was wonderful after a day of walking or biking.
My daughter and I visited the Grand Hotel one day while on the island and while that is a beautiful hotel, I think if we are ever fortunate enough to visit Mackinac Island again, I would love to stay at the Inn on Mackinac again. It's location was perfect, the staff was very personable, and the price was great!
- 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
