We have been to Mackinac many times but always stayed on the other end of Main Street. We stayed 2 nights. We were pleased with this location. Bay View Wait staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast, afternoon tea and evening deserts yummy. We stayed in room 104, it was small but common for many historic inns. The bed was comfy....

My wife and I stayed a week here during the Chicago to Mackinac boat race. The place is conveniently located just a short walk from main drag, the food is decent and the rooms are clean. The bathroom and shower were a bit small and awkward to use. But it adds a certain charm to the place, I suppose. Would...

This place is in an exceptional location. It is just far enough away from all of the hustle and bustle of the center of town, yet is close enough that a short walk will get you anywhere on Main/Market Streets in less than 10-12 minutes! There is a wonderful sun deck that overlooks the harbor. It was our favorite spot...

Knowing that Mackinac Island had no vehicles, we wondered how problematic it would be to transport our suitcases to the hotel from the dock. There was no need to worry.  The ferry porters were waiting at the dock to get our bags, they gave us easy directions to the hotel, and we enjoyed a short 10 minute walk to the...

Love it! We have 2 days left and just love this place. Fairly priced for ALL of the value you get here. Ms. Rose is a phenominal cook and bakes breakfast...snacks and dessert from scratch every day. The help here smiles...wants to help and are a wonderdul asset to the Bay View. Try the Bay View...you won't be dissapointed.

Excellent homemade desserts and breakfast. The ambiance and the hostess make everything worthwhile. You can't go wrong on Mackinac Island in general because of its serenity but Bay View was in a perfect location and was exactly what we were hoping for on our Honeymoon. Thank you Bay View!

We only stayed for one night. We found that this B&B badly needs renovation of all upholstery, carpet and curtains. The bathroom was very small, and the wahsbasin is in the room, with a shelf on top that makes its use nearly impossible. The sheets were clean, but very old, with stains. The bed is very soft.The room is very...

Everything you would expect from a B&B, and then some! The staff is hands down the friendliest group of people you will ever meet. We stayed the last weekend the island was "open" and we were treated so great even when most of the guests left on Sunday and everyone was closing down. It is a long season and everyone...

This was our first time on Mackinaw Island and the first time to stay at a Bed and Breakfast. Both were beyond our expectatons. The inn was well maintained, clean and nicely decorated. The big thing is the wonderful breakfast, afternoon cookie break and evening deserts. The staff were friendly and charming. At our opportunity we will certainly return here.

My girlfriend and I had spent a week in Nova Scotia, with a real whirlwind driving tour, and we were ending our vacation at Mackinac Island at the Bay View. With no cars, horse driven buggy rides, a relaxing facial and massage, fantastic food, reading looking over the bay we were ready to go back and face the real world
