Hotels in Mackinac Island

Aesthetically, there is one big theme to the Mackinac Island hotels, inns, B&Bs and rental condos: lots of Victorian gables, picket fences and a general gingerbread charm. Happily, you can find some diversity when it comes to pricing, and some affordable options. Here are our picks for the best hotels in Mackinac Island:

The Grand Hotel. This 19th century resort is the undisputed queen of hotels in Mackinac Island.  Overlooking Lake Huron, the Grand Hotel plays its old-fashioned role to the hilt, offering lawn games and after-dinner dancing.
Hotel Iroquois. Located on the waterfront, this 46-room hotel on Mackinac Island has spectacular views of the Straits of Mackinac and the Mackinac Bridge.
Mission Point Resort. This is one of the most family-friendly hotels in Mackinac Island: it offers a variety of garden games, an 18-hole putting course, and a museum with the island's history.
The Inn at Stonecliffe. This inn, with 16 rooms and 29 cottage-style suites, sits on the west bluff of Mackinac Island and provides views of the Straits.

Colonnaded 19th-century summer resort, complete with lawn games and after-dinner dancing, on a bluff overlooking Lake Huron. Every couple of year, the legendary 1887 Grand Hotel unveils an addition, such as the Gate House restaurant, where gentlemen can finally dine sans coat and tie.

This hotel earned our T+L 500 award, thanks to its beautiful waterfront location and embarrassment of amenities. Enjoy the gardens!
