Beautiful Hotel at Edge of Town

“This is a beautiful hotel towards the edge of town with nice views of the harbor. Very clean and comfortable. They have bike rentals that are cheaper than most places in town. Nice breakfasts each morning. Staff are very helpful.”
Bruce

Excellent Hotel

“My wife and I booked a two-night stay on Mackinac Island to rest and relax after dropping our kids off at college. It was a last-minute decision and I think the Harbor View Inn had the only remaining room left on the island....and what a pleasant surprise. We couldn't have been happier with our stay.”

Great Stay.

“My mom and I spent a weekend on the island for a mother-daughter getaway. We had a garden view room. We were on the first floor and there was a small patio outside with Adirondack chairs. The complimentary breakfast was nice. The room was clean and the staff was friendly.”
