Stayed at the Market Street Inn on a recent trip with my Mom and sister. Neither of them had experienced a bed and breakfast before and Kristin exceeded our expectations. She was very kind from the booking process through our departure.

Located just a block off Main Street it is close to all of the restaurants and shops yet very quiet. We enjoyed both the gorgeous garden setting as well as the lovely front porch.

I have stayed at several bed and breakfasts and this is one of the best. Kristen has set very high standards and I highly recommend Market Street Inn.

Kristen will make you feel like you are her best friend and welcome you by name when you arrive. Every guest is treated like a celebrity. Market Street Inn sets the standard for Bed and Breakfasts. You won't find anything better! The rooms are very nicely decorated, exquisitely cleaned, have the most comfortable beds you will ever sleep in, and breakfast is awesome and served when and where you choose. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here. We never consider any other B&B on the island. This is the place to be!

After our recent wedding, we wanted to take a road trip honeymoon and stumbled upon Mackinaw Island. When we began researching accommodations, the island's main attraction is the Grand Hotel. While it's a large, historic hotel on the island, we wanted the intimacy of a bed and breakfast. That's when we found the Market Street Inn.

The Inn is located near the island's downtown area. Kristen is the innkeeper and she has a small, incredibly friendly staff. They were very welcoming and made our stay memorable. Kristen knew our names. They took the extra step of providing us with a small bottle of champagne to celebrate our honeymoon. They even accompanied the champagne with a small box of chocolates (although it seems everyone gets the chocolate but it was an unexpected treat).

We stayed at the Market Street Inn for three nights in what I believe was "Rose Room". It was a cozy room with a firm queen sized bed, TV (with basic, local cable), and a surprisingly good-sized hotel-like bathroom. We filled a breakfast sheet every morning where we were able to select from a list of breakfast items (bagel/muffin/cinnamon roll, coffee/juice, hard boiled egg, fruit/yogurt). We were also able to pick where we wanted to enjoy our breakfast (parlor room, garden backyard, or room service) and Kristen was nice enough to bring it out on a tray between 8-930am.

The parlor is a perfectly decorated sitting room that also has a sink with hot water, a cabinet filled with goodies (teas, hot chocolate), and a mini fridge for guest use. The Inn has a nice front porch where you can sit and relax. It's also just a few minutes walk from the island's fort, downtown areas, and ferry docks so you won't feel like you're away from the action.

Overall, we had a great time staying at the Market Street Inn and look forward to returning in the future.

Traveling with a group of 4 couples could have been a challenge but we had such a wonderful experience here. They were very accommodating for our large group. Everything was neat and clean wonderfully decorated. All the extras made our trip special. Very nice front porch and large back patio were great for relaxing between adventures and after a long day. Thanks Kristin and staff for a great stay.

This was our third visit to Market Street Inn and we have never been disappointed. We stayed in room #8 which is smaller than the two other rooms we've stayed in for our first two visits but still very cozy and comfortable. It didn't matter what room we reserved, we knew from experience that it would be great. The Inn's location is perfect, sitting one street back from the main thoroughfare where all of the hustle and bustle is found. The grounds are beautiful, the garden patio in the back is secluded and serene and a perfect place to have your breakfast served if you so desire. Kristen (Inn Keeper),Tammi and Paula were wonderful and ready to make every guests' stay as pleasant as possible. My wife and I were welcomed as old friends (even though a couple of years passed since our last stay. Sorry Kristen). Certainly amenities are important to a good B & B experience and Market Street Inn exceeds the grade on all of those. But what draws us back to the Inn is the personal and sincere attention we receive during our stay and the true feeling of friendship from Kristen and her staff. We highly recommend Market Street Inn. We are planning another visit in the fall.

The Market Street Inn was everything we had hoped for and more! Our host Kristen and the entire staff were the absolute best! We had a small birthday party for my 16 year old son while he was on the island and, since it was raining, we were all invited to use the parlor for our small party. This inn is the epitome of graciousness, complete with a gorgeous garden area, delicious breakfast choices, cookies in the afternoon, and several tea or coffee choices offered anytime your heart desires! Our room was beautiful and the authentic Victorian wood staircase and antiques make this bed and breakfast a wonderful place to stay.

This was a wonderful place to stay! Kristin greeted us upon arrival and was so cheerful and helpful. She and her staff are a great asset! She gave us passes to The Grand Hotel, Butterfly House, recommended restaurants. She is very knowledgeable about the whole island which is so helpful to first time visitors. Our room was very nice and quiet. The bed was so comfortable with its down topper; also very clean. We had breakfast in the garden area which was delicious. The muffin was delicious which Kristin had recommended. Can't wait until we can come visit the island and this B&B again!
