Island House Hotel – Photos

Our latest featured lodging photo album – the Island House Hotel, which completed a $4-million renovation this spring. 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.

Island House Hotel

"In the 1890s, tourists attempted to bring 'horseless carriages' to Mackinac Island, immediately alienating the residents with their noise, spooking the horses and disrupting the island's quiet, contemplative way of life. It rapidly became a safety issue, as well as a lifestyle one. The year-round residents wanted nothing to do with these new-fangled contraptions, so in 1898, the town banned them."

I am so glad that motorized vehicles are still for bidden, except for the islands emergency vehicles. It is still a bit of a step back in time.

We went there on our honeymoon; so clean and quiet.

A couple years ago, I got up early before dawn at Island House to watch the sunrise. Rode my bike to the east side of the island. When i got just past Arch Rock, i encountered an 18 wheeler tank truck on the bike trail! How/what I'll never know, but it tarnished my image s bit.

Brandon and Caitlin's wedding venue!
