I stayed at the Island House recently from May 17-19, 2013, and had an amazing vacation! Our room had a spectacular view, was clean and very spacious compared to other hotels on the island. We booked a package that included two breakfasts and one dinner, and the food at the hotel was fantastic. But the best thing about the hotel...

The Island House Hotel is absolutely beautiful! Its old fashioned feel is perfect for its Island setting. Although my stay was short, I truly loved the experience we got from staying at this hotel. Located conveniently close to many of the shops and dining experiences, we were not a far walk from the action of the Island. The view of...

We have been most pleased with the Island House and have returned 3 times in the last 2 years. Each time we have had excellent service and a wonderful experience. I still have our bag tags hanging by our computer as a reminder of our last trip. We have likewise been impressed by the large porch, breakfast buffet, availability of...

I was on a business trip and was orignally scheduled to stay at the Grand Hotel. Unfortunatley, a few weeks before the conference the conference was changed to the Island House. I was disappointed, but it wasn't my call. The Island House was historic (old), cozy(much smaller), but certainly a step down from my original "Grand" expectations. When I arrived...

When I am on Mackinac Island for business, I often stay at properties managed by Island House. Specifically Harbor Place apartments which are right on the harbor near the Shepler's ferry dock. I always appreciate the no nonsense coordination of my room with the Island House staff, the convenience, cleanliness and thoughtfulness of the facilities. I have stayed with them...

We had been wanting to spend an overnite on Mackinac Island with friends since our last adventure to New York City last January. Which by the way was just so much fun! This was a wonderful adventure that started with a great offer of tickets for the ferry, breakfast included room price (not just a continental breakfast but eggs pancakes,...

I was traveling with my sister who found a great deal for the end of season on travelzoo.com For a fantastic price we received four hours of biking, two night stay, fifty dollar dining credit and a 1/2 pound of fudge. The weather was not ideal while we were there, but we still enjoyed the four hours of biking around...

My husband and I recently returned from a two night stay at the Island House Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan. While this is the oldest hotel on the island it has clean comfortable rooms. Our room was small but pleasant, and reasonably priced. The bed was very comfortable and provided a great night's sleep. The hotel rents bikes and is...

This was our second visit to the Island House, but our first with our kids. Yet again, we had a great time. LOVE the location just outside of the "main street" chaos, yet still close to everything. The view and the porch will keep you coming back. Highly recomend. We will be back!
