We went to Mackinac Island to get married. We stayed at the Lake View Hotel and arrived a couple days in advance of the wedding. In advance, we arranged for our wedding to take place at the hotel, indoors or outdoors, rain or shine. It was just the two of us, so we didn't need a big reception hall or large areas. We scheduled with the hotel in advance and they were quick to respond, and upgrade us to a nice room as an act of kindness in celebration of our wedding. First, I have to mention the hotel manager. He was exceptional and exceeded any expectations we had. We had planned/hoped to find flowers locally on the island as we arrived early and shopped, but none were available. The hotel manager arranged the indoor (yes, it rained) location, and even went to call the main land to make sure we had flowers in time for the ceremony. It took a lot of pressure off of us and made our stay VERY enjoyable. The remainder of the staff including the porter and desk staff were amazing. The restaurant in the hotel had a very full menu with lots of choices. I noticed on the island that some of the restaurants had limited menus, but this wasn't the case at the Lake View Hotel.
The hotel was located directly across the street from the ferry, and it literally took 60 seconds to get from the dock to the hotel. Even though the hotel was 100 feet from the docks, they picked up our baggage and then took it to the dock when we left. From there, the ferry crew took care of our luggage, so we didn't have to "muscle" any of it.
I can't begin to thank everyone at this hotel enough for all of help they provided, and the exceptional experience we had. They definitely made this a wonderful, memorable wedding. I might add that I am 47 years old and this is the first time I have ever been married. It was everything I hoped for, and more.
