My wife and I had a week to ourselves with kids and headed to Mackinaw. We stayed in a cottage at The Beach House and really enjoyed it. The cottage was very simple - a bed, small TV and a small bathroom, but it suited us very well. We spent the days out and about so only needed a place to sleep at night. We enjoyed walking on the beach and had a very nice picnic on the beach as well. The staff were very very friendly and accommodating. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows not so much. Good thing we had our own. Getting the temperature right in the shower became a game, but was OK. I you just want a place to sleep at night and a fairly nice little beach to enjoy in the Mackinaw area, this is a great option.

Room Tip: Some of the cottages are right on the beach, some are behind them, landward, so make sure you know what you are getting.

We just had a wonderful time at the Beach House. Roasting marshmellows on the beach, swimming in Lake Huron, wonderful view of the Bridge, clean, owners very friendly and beautiful landscaping. Look forward to going back!

We love this place. This was our second yr to stay. We won't stay any other place but here, have been coming every year to Mackinaw city now for 6 yrs. Have stayed many places but this is the best by far. The owners are very personable and care about your needs and want you to have a good stay. You can build a fire on the beach at night and sit by the water and sun during the day. Shopping is just down the road. Always sad to leave but we know we will be back!

My husband and I try to get up here at least once a year. We LOVE the cottages and the owners are amazing! I almost wonder if some of the "bad" reviews are rival cottage/hotel owners but that's just a hunch. We have come here alone and have also brought family and everyone loved it. I will not stay anywhere else in Mackinaw. I've even passed up a chance to stay on the island to stay here. it's my little piece of paradise.

This places is off the beaten path, the cottages are so charming, the grounds are beautiful ! You have the lake front, fire pit at night and they supply the wood and anything else that is needed. They have a pool and jazzi. Its not the Hilton but if your looking for the laid back cozy feel and not the big corporation. This is perfect! ( and the owners I can't say enough about! the two of them are the most amazing people, so accommodating!) Pricing fantastic!
