We could not have been more pleased. Our theme room, "Somewhere in Time," was cozy and wonderfully charming and romantic. It was also clean, clean, clean! Service was outstanding with a personal touch. The area was quiet at night and very restful. Yet, we were only three short blocks from the ferry to Mackinac Island, two blocks from the shopping and restaurant area and three or four from the lighthouse and the colonial fort. Everything was super convenient and easily accessible by foot and bicycle, so we hardly used our car.
The owner gave us a safe and secluded place to lock our bikes. But, if I had to find one area for possible improvement, I would suggest a bike rack -- covered would be fantastic! In this very bicycle friendly and accessible city, that would make the Lamplighter just about perfect.
