Jackson Harbor Inn
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Two of the rooms are dog friendly, which we really appreciated. Our room was actually more of a small suite with a balcony outside from which we could see Rock Island. Just across the road is a nature preserve with a trail that goes out to a spit of land into Lake Michigan. Very charming, comfortable and no fuss.

This is the second time we've stayed here, and we highly recommend the rooms and especially Pam Young, the innkeeper. We had one of the four newer bedrooms in the Harbor Haus, and loved the big picture window letting us see the moon reflected on Jackson Harbor. We had a fireplace (good for colder weather), and a frig and micro. Our king-size bed was comfortable, the towels thick and fluffy, and the room was beautiful. The grounds are also love, with many tables and chairs to enjoy the beautiful flowers. Last year, we stayed in a room with shared bath in the main house. This, of course, was much nicer, but the other is a good choice for budget-minded stays. As mentioned by other people, this is on the northeastern side of the island. Across from the driveway is a Ridges Preserve and trail. We went from here to the Rock Island Ferry (could have walked), and spent several hours on Rock Island State Park.
This is where we'll stay next year!

Room Tip: We took a room upstairs because you can see Jackson Harbor and the window views are great. There ar...

My wife and I stayed for a quick getaway this Summer. The rooms are nicely updated, clean, and comfortable. The location is close to several attractions including schoolhouse beach, the ferry to Rock Island, the observation tower, and the hip little pub called Fiddler's Green with live music and a great beer selection. The grounds are beautiful with meticulous gardens and located in the quaint Jackson Harbor fishing village. With an island of this small size, everything is only minutes away, so do not feel limited to staying near Detroit Harbor.

A beautifully peaceful setting. Private rooms with very comfortable beds, coffee maker, bathroom with shower, small refrigerator and microwave. Comfortable chairs make for taking in the great view through large windows. The bathroom includes big fluffy towels, a hair dryer and night light. Located within walking distance to the Karfi ferry that takes you to Rock Island. Not far from restaurants/bars. There are no televisions, but they do have a lending library of books and board games.

I stayed for two nights for business on the Island. This was my second stay on the Island and can recommend the Harbor Inn over other accomodations on the Island. The pictures provided on their website are true to what the room looks like. Fireplace is available in certain rooms for heat. Everything looks and feels like new! The only negative I can say was that there wasn't a TV or phone available in the room and being there for business left a bit of a boring evening. Wireless internet was provided, but was not able to provide enough bandwith for two computers to stream shows. Next time I'll plan on bringing my own DVDs as entertainment. Also as a note, due to the location on the Island, cell phone service is a bit spotty, was able to make phone calls outside, but not inside my room. The mini fridge was great for storing snacks. Thanks for a great stay!

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights in July as part of our honeymoon. The owner Pam was warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. The room we stayed in was gigantic, there was one king size bed in one room and another queen bed in an adjoining room. This room would be great for a family to share and yet still be together but sleep separately. There was a medium sized kitchenette area in the room with a refrigerator and microwave and a smaller sit down table. There is also full use of the main kitchen downstairs with access pretty much everything in the kitchen. My only slight disappointment was in the size of the bathroom and the water pressure. All in all though it was adequate and cozy it just didn't seem to match the rest of the of the room. The view of Jackson Harbor from the attached porch off the room was amazing. The morning sunrise's were incredible! We plan on staying here many more times in the future. Washington Island has become a new found treasure for my new husband, this was his first experience there and he is definitely hooked! Please give Jackson Harbor Inn a try, Pam is wonderful and you couldn't ask for a better place to stay.

I have put up friends at this wonderfully well run Inn on Washington Island.
The rooms are well appointed and the view of Rock Island is spectacular!
Pam has worked hard to make this place the best on the island!
