Lodging for adults

My husband and I are looking forward to spending our June anniversary at Mackinac Island. We'd like to stay in a place which is reasonably priced, not too loud and there aren't a lot of kids running around. Are there Inns on the island for adults only?

Many of the bed and breakfasts on the Island are more suited for adults. I believe Bay View Bed and Breakfast is specifically for adults only.

That being said, my husband and I go by ourselves every other year (taking our kids the other years). We've never been disturbed by kids when staying at Main Street Inn and Suites or Metivier Inn, either.

Main Street Inn and Suites will provide what you are looking for. Beautiful rooms, great views overlooking either water or Main Street, from certain rooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there last June. Didn't even see one kid there, though I am sure there was. Very quiet. :)

What you have to watch more so than children staying with parents are school and scout field trips. May and early June for schools, but anytime for scouts, churches etc that bring their kids on overnight trips.

We stayed in the Murray in the past and there were dozens and dozens of kids running the halls. Not sure where the chaperones were, but it was very loud. Otherwise we liked the Murray.

I think most of the groups stay at the lower-priced hotels such as the Murray and Inn on Mackinac. .

Look into Hart's B&B. We always stay here and it is reasonably priced. Not super fancy, but clean and pleasant. It is on Market Street, just up French Lane from the Star Line ferry dock. Since it is off the main drag, it is very quiet and I don't recall ever seeing kids while we were there.

Let me sum this place up with one word: INCREDIBLE. If you want details, just email me and let me know. I'll be glad to give you details. Cottage Inn, right on the island. http://www.cottageinnofmackinac.com/
