“Friendly hosts, comfortable and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

We chose this place based on the tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The B & B is comfortable, friendly, and relaxing. It was a short walk to the main street and the dock when it was time to leave. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious. There were books and DVD's in the living area to choose from. Our room had a balcony that looked over the street. It was fun to stand out there and watch the carriages go by. It is very near the Fort.

Room Tip: Get a room that looks out over the street if you want the view. We liked our balcony. Not all room...

We wanted to experience Mackinac Island in all seasons so we decided to attend the annual Christmas Bazaar in December 2010 (the date below is not correct since the calendar did not go back that far).
It wasn't a true winter experience since the island only had a dusting of snow but to be there without all the summer crowds was great!
Our innkeepers at The Cottage Inn were very personable and friendly. The breakfast was wonderful.

Room Tip: Since this was the off season and the first time we have stayed there its hard to recommend a partic...

If you are looking for a quiet, restful winter weekend, then the Cottage Inn on Mackinac Island is just the place to find it. The innkeepers, Rich and Marge, do a terrific job of making sure you have everything you need or want - a sumptuous breakfast - afternoon snacks of Mackinac Island sweets - the always available coffee and tea - popcorn - a good supply of DVD’s to borrow from and wine glasses, if you so desire. They are always ready to help with suggestions for great walks or areas to ski, information on restaurants and anything else that may be available to do on the island while you are a guest. The inn and room was immaculate. We have already shared our experiences with several friends and are looking forward to returning on a snowy weekend in the future when we can again take advantage of the island’s beauty and peace.

We had visited Mackinac Island several summers ago for the day and had always wanted to return for a longer stay. We love snow and planned the come in the winter and while this winter has been much milder than we hoped, we were not disappointed with our trip to the Cottage Inn. Rich and Marge were great and the stay was even more fun than we expected. We will be back.

It has been on our "bucket list" to spend a winter holiday on Mackinac Island. It is hard to put into words how our winter exprience was enhanced because of Marge and Rich the Innkeepers at the Cottage Inn. The Inn is not only beautiful but the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Marge and Rich share the exact right amount of friendliness and knowledge while still giving each guest the exact right amount of space. Waking up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee and delicious breakfast foods is just one of the many things that made our stay the best it could be. The rooms are perfect, nicley decorated and very comfortable. We had such a great experience that we have already booked for the summer and are planning our return trip for the New Year celebration of 2013. Can't wait for our next visit!

Room Tip: It is not possible to have a bad room. There are rooms located on the first floor for people that c...
