Island House Hotel – Photos

On the first days of summer we’d like to present our latest featured lodging photo album – the Island House Hotel. Mackinac Island’s oldest hotel, the Island House Hotel offers sweeping harbor views and a full complement of amenities. From the hotel’s spacious porch, guests can enjoy the clip-clop of horse carriages passing by and feel the gentle breezes off of Mackinac Harbor and the Straits of Mackinac Island. Shopping in downtown Mackinac Island is a short walk away.

The Ryba, The Callewaert, The Island Suite.

Or The Harry, The Victor, The Todd.

Name them after the islands surrounding Mackinac Island

Michigan, Huron, Superior, Suites. Add some art work from those lakes in each.

The Ojbwe, The Odawa and The Potawatomi

Wind Water Sun

Name them after famous sitcom families. Like the Keaton, the Conner and the Brady. Or something like that. Ha.

Opps The Ojibwe

Or local cities the Cheboygen, the Rogers and the Brutus

Yellow . The sunshine room!!!

O'Malley, Van Allen, and the Callewaert or the Ryba Suites

Professor. ..Skipper...Gilligan.

Serenity, Tranquility, and Peaceful Suites.

Bay Breeze, Carriage Room and Divinity (as in fudge lol)

Mackinac. Huron and Market

Lighthouse, Mackinac Bridge and Freighter themed?

White House inspired ... the Blue Room, the Yellow Room and the ???

Ask a native Odawa about the language/translation of the colors...

The harbor the stables the fortress

I like using the great Lakes idea

I would call them: Suite Ethel. Suite Rena. Suite Victor.

After the sights - The Butterfly Room, The Fort Room and The Lighthouse Room.

Mitchimakinak Suite, Little Turtle Suite, Blanding Suite

Island House Hotel

General Manager, Alan Sehoyan joined the Island House Hotel team in 2016. Alan's path to the Island House has been a remarkable one, highlighted with emphasis on family and hospitality. He was introduced to the hospitality and service industries as a teenager at his father's high-end salon and spa in his hometown, Grosse Pointe, MI. In 1996, he joined the Peace Corps, where he helped build and create an eco-tourism lodge in Papua, New Guinea. When he returned to the U.S., he answered an ad for a window washer at the Bay Harbor Village Hotel & Conference Center in Petoskey, MI. Alan noticed this hotel was missing a very important amenity; concierge service. They hired him not as a window washer, but as a concierge. His hard work, dedication, and creativity earned him the role of General Manager just three short years after joining the company. It remains a special place to Alan, as that is where he met his wife, Allison. Together they made the move to Mackinac Island 15 years ago where they now live year-round with their two children. Alan is involved in numerous projects at Island House Hotel where he can be found doing anything from greeting guests to decorating rooms depending on the season. Look for the sharpest dressed man in the hotel and you’ve found Alan. ... See MoreSee Less
