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.
