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.

Family Retreat
Lobby coffee is amazing! Don’t change that! My brother is suffering from cancer. I asked for a ground floor room for him. Our day of arrival, I got a call from the property, extending a suite for a little more cost. I appreciate they looked out for us. I believe the guys name was Travis or Tyler, it started with a T. I’ve spoken to him before, he manages upgrades and such. Thank you so much. Our family retreat was full of memories.

Not worth the price
Room was small and not as expected. Could hear people in other rooms and outside. Bed shook for minutes at a time on multiple occasions.

This was a great location on the island. Away from the piers (noise & crowds), but within walking distance.
