This hotel is affordable and close to downtown, the park, Fort Mackinac, everything. Its grounds are very well manicured, some of the most beautiful on the island. The porch has a spectacular view, you can even see the lake across the street. Hot breakfast is included, and they even have beverages available all day, cheese/crackers/lemonade in the afternoon, and warm chocolate chip cookies delivered to your room in the evening. The heated spa pool is a great bonus. Parking for your bike on the East side of the building. Porter will help you with your luggage from the dock. Very friendly staff. Rooms are clean but could use some updating, however that is part of the charm of Mackinac. The only problem I have had is that I spoke with the manager about making a room block for my wedding guests this coming year, I also left my contact information and have called and emailed the hotel several times. I had such a great stay, but now I am disappointed that they will not get back with me regarding my block. Therefore I will be staying somewhere else when I come in 2014.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The year was 1867, an era of horse-drawn carriages and ladies in bustles. Blacksmiths were crafting horse shoes in glowing forges. During this height of Victorian culture, the Inn on Mackinac was built. Known then as Chateau Beaumont in memory of the famous Army surgeon at Fort Mackinac, the Inn on Mackinac has retained its quaint, old fashioned charm. The Inn’s facilities have been updated to meet the needs of the modern traveler while preserving its colorful history. Today, completely remodeled and redecorated, this beautiful Victorian Inn opens its doors, where the very special charm of our family-run Inn awaits you. ... more less
