We loved our 24 hours at this inn. We were impressed that our luggage was checked at the ferry in Mackinaw City and sent directly on to the inn. We could have taken a carriage but instead chose to walk from town, up the Pontiac trail alongside beautiful old "cottages" and up the bluff to the inn. Trails meander through the woods and you feel lost in time as you hear the clip-clop of horses wafting through the air. The inn has beautiful grounds and a nice pool. We rented bicycles for a wonderful ride along the bikes only "highway" that circles the whole island and enjoyed exploring the trails around the inn. We had an excellent dinner in the dining room and enjoyed the breakfast buffet on the patio. The staff was friendly and helpful. The inn is secluded so people looking for nightlife or touristy attractions should stay elsewhere. If you are looking for a serene, beautiful place to relax, this is it.
