Having never planned a trip to Mackinac Island before, I had the misconception that the very expensive, well-publicized Grand Hotel was the only lodging. Thank goodness that's not the case because everyone should have the opportunity to spend at least one night on this most interesting and beautiful island. There's a range of lodging options. For the budget-minded who want an authentic old-time experience, I recommend Bogan Lane Inn. The energetic mother-daughter operators do all the work themselves. They're life-long, year-around residents and not only exceptionally knowledgible, but also willing to sit with guests to share their tips. Their home is full of antiques and lots of books on Mackinac's history, flora, and fauna. Rooms aren't pristine, but they're quiet, homey and comfortable. Breakfast is continental and all homemade. With the clip-clopping of horses going by outside and the vintage cottages all around the neighborhood, staying in this inn reinforces the feeling of having stepped back in time. You'd miss that you stayed in one of the more modern, more costly lodgings. It's within walking distance of the docks, the fort, restaurants, shops, and bicycle rentals. I'm almost reluctant to reveal this "find," because next time I want to make a reservation there may be no rooms available!

in the porch room where i stayed, they had very comfy beds. in the morning the breakfast was always wonderful, especially the cowboy coffee cake! i stayed 4 nites in mackinac, which was enough to experience the fudge, fort, and state park. the rate was decent for the expensive island. ive learned after a while you don't notice the smell of the horse poo anymore. my vacation here was very relaxing with the help of bogan lane inn! quick tip: bring bikes with you to mackinac, or else face the wrath of the $5 per hour bike rental fee.

One of many charming old homes on the Island offering Bed and Breakfast. Although there are no private bathrooms, only two bed rooms share. The owner has lived on the Island all of her life and is very knowledgable about its history and culture.

Breakfast is simple, but the rate is what stands out on this very expensive Island. $85 for two per night.

Location is perfect, just East of the Fort and away from the noise of the main street.

You can't beat this bargain.
