The Chippewa, and its Pink Pony bar and dining room, are our go-to places on Mackinac. Located right on the water next to the Arnold Ferry dock and near all the downtown shops and restaurants. Fabulous place to relax and just hang out!

Room Tip: Pay the extra to get a room with a view of the lake - entirely worth it! Rooms to the east end on upper floors don't look down on the roof of the outside dining area.

Great place to stay on the island. Close to everything too. I always get a balcony suite, pricy but worth it for me. Imagine sitting on the balcony overlooking the harbor, watching the sun rise and drinking Mackinac Island Fudge coffee....life couldn't be any better. Friends went this trip, were in another room and were very impressed. The bed is super comfy, room is spotless and it is nice having a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker in the room. I love this place!

Room Tip: Spend the money and get a harbor side room - the view is awesome, especially in the morning.

We had not been to the island for years, and chose the Chippewa based on a friend's recommendation. What a delightful hotel, charming, most caring staff - both at hotel... and the Pink Pony restaurant-bar attached.
The attention, the food, the room and view (we were on the harbor side), were fantastic. A simply great place to stay - at the top Midwest escape location.

Room Tip: We've not tried the Main Street side; the harbor view is a bit more I think....and when we return, that's what we'll request.

Spent 2 nights in late September at the Chippewa in a waterfront suite. A bit pricey but its worth it for the view.

The service was good, rooms clean and the air conditining and heating seemed to work well. Had a problem with the ceiling fan not working, but they solved that by bringing up a box fan. There is no door between the bedroom and the sitting room.

The food in the Pink Pony was good, and the bartenders are great.

Definately a great place to stay on the Island.

We recently spent two nights on the island in a King Deluxe room on Main Street. The clip-clip of horse hooves echoed in our windows from dawn to dusk. So enjoyable! The hotel is steps away from the Arnold Ferry Line. Archie the friendly and smiling bag porter was prompt and cheerful bringing over our bags. The room was nicely furnished with a comfortable king bed for great sleeping. Nice climate control units and I loved the box fan that was an option for cool fall evenings. The hot tub was perfect for the cool evening with a nice waterfront site. We enjoyed our time with you.

Room Tip: If you enjoy Main Street you will like this room...
