“Very Romantic Hotel”
Reviewed July 5, 2005

We loved the Inn on Mackinac (The french write it Mackinac, the English write Mackinaw...) When we got off the boat, the hotel had an attendant get our suitcases and bring them to the front desk for us. It is a short walk from Arnold Ferry to the Inn. Regarding the hotel: the reality is better than the pictures in the brochure! The wallpaper is red floral, the furniture is antique, they even had a sitting area in our room #501!! We took so many pictures of this romantic room! The bathroom is painted a soft sky blue with tiny gray birds painted on, the pedistal sinkS were new, they gave us tons of towels, the room was clean. We enjoyed the package deal, the carriage ride was interesting and fun. (Don't sit in the front row, the horses can stink! Remember that Seinfeld episode?) It was most enjoyable to relax in the tub after the last boat of tourists left and just hear the waves coming in and the clip-clop of the horses (no motor vehicles are allowed on the Island.) Main Street can be busy and crowded during the day so it is nice to experience the peace and quiet of the evening and morning here. On the second floor is a porch to watch the water or read, they also added on the third floor a large jacuzzi with a waterfall! We received in our package a discount of 10% to certain businesses, including French Outpost, their food is fresh and delicious! They have live music, feel-good music that we enjoyed immensely! Their dried cherry cobb salad is great!! The hotel's continental breakfast is cereal, hard boiled eggs, toast, bagels, yogart. It was fine. The hotel also sells fudge, the peanut butter and chocolate one is so good! They are old-fashioned and romantic, yet the elevator is quick and the bathroom has a heat light and modern conveniences. There are only 4 stations for the tv, but there is so much to see and do here that it does not matter. The hotel likes to add little surprises here and there and are friendly, looking for ideas on how to improve, we couldn't think of any improvements. Enjoy your stay! It is worth the price to get the GOOD room!

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
