    The check-in staff was friendly and helpful. The room was super, with a great view of the bridge and the lake. There is a nice sand beach, with plenty of outdoor seating. We would have loved to had more time.

    Called same day and got the last king room for the night. Great location, beach right outside the back door of the room. Bonfires and s'mores complimentary. Gluten free options for complimentary breakfast too. Little bit pricey but I would stay here again.

    It's not the Ritz, but everything was spot on for a weekend getaway at Mackinac. The room was clean and kept up, despite a few signs of being an older place. Everywhere were clouds of hydrangeas and other flowers, and the beach is right outside...More

    I've seen a few trying but I've never seen anyone catching anything. I've been told the fishing is good on the Cheboygan River near the dam. That's about 20 minutes south of us. Kim Phillips Owner Clearwater Lakeshore Motel
