About Island House Hotel

Charming Victorian hotel on the lake, minutes from downtown

4 minutes to the ferry

Island House Hotel puts you in a quiet waterfront location, a short walk from the restaurants and boutiques of Mackinac Island. The ferry that shuttles you across Lake Huron to the mainland is a 4-minute walk, and the hotel will transport your luggage.

Explore downtown, nature

This Historic Hotels of America property is praised for its peaceful, waterfront location, only 5 minutes on foot from the bustle of downtown. You can rent onsite bikes and explore Mackinac State Park, 1.7 miles north, or tour a butterfly conservatory less than a mile away.

Lake views on the porch

You can start your day with breakfast at the water-view restaurant and end it in a comfy chair on the lawn or porch. Fun amenities include bike rentals and a pool house - complete with indoor pool and hot tub. Luggage storage services available.

Quaint rooms with views

Guestrooms feature Victorian touches such as chintz wallpaper and floral window swags, along with the convenience of free WiFi. You can book accommodations on upper floors for peaceful harbor views, mini-fridges, and separate seating areas with sofa beds.

Island House Hotel
The Island House is a wonderful place to stay. My friend and I were extremely happy with our room, the view of the Bay from our windows, the employees were all friendly and helpful (even the young man who brought our bags from the dock to the hotel on his bike), the hotel restaurant is very nice and we had a very good breakfast there. I would highly recommend The Island House for your stay on Mackinac Island.
