Bay View B & B rooms

Is there anyone out there who have rented rooms on the first floor at Bay View B & B. On June 2 we had room 101. To say in a nutshell, it was disappointing and to my husband and myself somewhat overpriced. Tiny sink by door when you come in the room, door for bathroom opens into the bed and shower floor had no protection against slipping.

1. Re: Bay View B & B rooms

We were on the second floor a few years ago. The rooms are small as are most rooms in these wonderful historic buildings. When they were built over a hundred years ago, the livestyles were very different. I believe Bay View added these bathrooms after the home was originally built, and they have done a very good job in making the rooms lovely and comfortable. We spend very little time actually in our rooms, so it was certainly sufficient for our needs.

Mackinac Island is popular for its historic charm, and much of the lodging is a reflection of that history. The expense is something to be expected on an island which only has a peak time of about 2-3 months. However, with the economy as it is, many places are offering great discounts.

I would recommend contacting Bay View about your suggestion to provide some sort of traction outside the shower. The innkeepers would certainly welcome those helpful tips.

My wife and I stayed at the Bay View a couple of years ago, but on the second floor. We were quite pleased with our stay, though I have no idea how the room sizes compare to the one you stayed in.

I too would suggest contacting the owners to let them know your thoughts. Should you ever encounter similar disappointment in the future, I'd tell the manager/owner while you are there so they have an opportunity to make sure you leave happy.
