A big thank you to the inn keeper, Kristen who made our stay outstanding. Have already booked for next year. The inn is immaculate and in a perfect area, no noise, but close to the Main Street.
Our room was decorated with lilacs which was perfect since we were there for the Lilac Festival street dance coordinated by the West Michigan Boot Scooters. Wonderful weekend!

Room Tip: Room number 4 has a big bay window and decorated very beautiful, comfortable bed, WiFi and flat screen TV

As all the other reviewers have said, Market Street Inn is outstanding! This was our first stay in a B & B so we weren't quite sure what to expect - we were thrilled. We stayed in the jacuzzi suite and it didn't disappoint. Kristen, the innkeeper, has a delightful personality and is truly an asset to the Inn. Tammy, who is in the hospitality industry also, is wonderful too!

Tips:
1. Free passes to tour the Grand Hotel are available to guests.
2. Free passes to the Butterfly House & Insect World are given to guests as well - loved this place!
3. The Inn's business cards also serve as admission to the Art Museum - didn't have time for this attraction.
4. Make-up removal wipes are available in the room - one less thing to pack.
5. Fudge as well as cookies are available during the afternoon.
6. The Inn is a short walk to the Ferries.
7. The Inn is just around the corner from Doud's Market. We bought delicious hot sandwiches, pesto pasta salad and a bottle of wine from Doud's and enjoyed our meal on the front porch of the Inn.

We usually don't visit the same place twice as there are so many wonderful places to explore, however this will be an exception. We definitely want to return!

As longtime visitors to Mackinac Island, Michigan, my wife and I would classify ourselves as seasoned veterans of the entire Straits area. The location has always been our first choice for vacations.

Our vacation to the island in early August 2013 included a first-ever stay at Market Street Inn. We enjoy the B&B experience; it makes for a wonderful break away from the oft-used chain experience we've all had.

Kristen the innkeeper was a gem! The building itself was just as nice. Our room, #4 on the first floor, was both easily accessible and comfortable. Sometimes at private, family-run establishments, such as B&B's, great care is taken with the decor but can lack a good quality bed. The bed in room #4 was very comfortable -- and quiet.

We enjoyed the inn's proximity to all of downtown. We know well enough that despite Mackinac Island's ban on motor vehicles, Main Street is a major hub of activity with bicycles and pedestrian traffic, especially during the high season! While Market Street is just one block off of Main Street's activity, it is far enough away from the noise yet close enough to get into the thick of it in a very short walk.

Market Street Inn is adjacent to historic Fort Mackinac, which is the source of the cannon fire that 'Eyeisha W' spoke about in her review. Since the fort is a working re-creation of fort life on the island in the 18th century (http://www.mackinacparks.com/parks-and-attractions/fort-mackinac/), it is not overbearing by any means and is a great tribute to those who spent their time protecting the territory. The cannon fire is only at selected times during the day; an equally pleasant sound that comes from the fort at the close of the day's activity is the playing of taps.

At the time of our vacation to the island and to Market Street Inn in 2013, my wife and I immediately considered the inn for our return trip in 2014 to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. I am pleased to say that we are including the Market Street Inn as one of our stays in the area! The inn made that kind of an impression on my wife and me!

As a Michigan business owner and professional myself, I appreciate the hard work of fellow business owners and operators who can work at providing such a high level of excellence time and time again.

We visited May 19-20th for our 25th wedding anniversary. Staying at the Market Street Inn felt like staying with family. It truly was very relaxing, and we felt so welcomed. All the other reviews talking about the food, the clean rooms, the feel of the place are spot on! Kristen is fabulous! I felt like we made a new friend. It was our first experience with a B & B, and we were a little anxious about it until we got there, met Kristin and her intern, Tammie, and both were very nice and gave us lots of ideas for things to do while on the island. We stayed in the Garden Suite with its own private entrance, and just loved it! It's small and cute and fit our needs perfectly! The breakfasts were wonderful, fresh fruit, muffins, cinnamon rolls, juice, coffee, tea. Fresh cookies were left on a plate just inside the front door of the inn every day. Our room came with complimentary passes to the Butterfly House, and the Inn also has guest passes to tour the Grand Hotel, which was a nice savings! The location was great, just steps from the main street, but without the noise. It was a bit cold and rainy while we were there, so we didn't get to enjoy the wonderful looking back garden area, but we plan to return again, so we will make sure to use it then! All in all, a wonderful stay, no complaints at all, and we highly recommend this place! Try it, you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Ask for the Garden Suite, it has its own entrance and is very quiet!

We stayed at Market Street Inn on May 18-19, 2014 in Room 3. We throughly enjoyed our stay and plan to return next year. Kristen (Innkeeper) and assistants provided for our every need and then some. The room 3 was nicely decorated, clean, and super comfortable, plus it was farly large, included a king bed & two chairs & jacuzzi. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The inn is located close to downtown, is well maintained, and the parlor, porch, and large patio were also very nice. We had our breakfast on the patio one morning. We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. One example of many nice touches- it was our anniversary and Kristen had already placed a bottle of champagne in our refridgerator! The late afternoon cookies are also great!

So very glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We were so happy to have you in the Garden Courtyard for breakfast that morning, our first Garden breakfast of the year, (even though it was a bit chilly!) We look forward to hosting you again and thank you for the great picture of the Inn from up the hill. Sincerely,
