There are no chain hotels on Mackinac Island. Instead, there are more than 1,600 unique rooms in a delightful variety of hotels, resorts, B&Bs, condominiums, cottages and homes. Each extraordinary place to stay is a one-of-a-kind, family-owned gem. In many cases, the ownership dates back to the 1800s when Mackinac Island began blossoming into a summer vacation destination. The timeless charm from that era lives on to this day through the genteel hospitality of Mackinac Island’s historic places to stay.

Years go by fast. Turning into almost 3 years since our last visit to Mackinac Island! Hoping to fix that this year. Here’s a blue hour shot from a nice calm morning back in the ‘old days’ of 2018.

Mackinac Bridge!  It connects the Upper Peninsula (at St. Ignace) with the Lower Peninsula (Mackinaw City), where all us trolls live.

This bridge post is brought to you by Ruby+Associates, the OFFICIAL structural engineering company of choice of my Instagram account.  Ruby+Associates - when you're here, you're family.

I looked out this morning at a grey dreary day and expectations were low for my first walk with Alfie. Rounding the corner to Arch Rock I could see the vivid color of the water and the watercolor clouds. I could hear the sound of the birds and slight waves on the shore. Surprised and grateful for this peaceful start to a work day.
This is probably one of the most photographed landmarks on the Island. I know I’ve taken hundreds of photos myself. But no moment is alike. The light, the sky, the water are forever changing. It’s like a first portrait every time.

“Lilacs For Anne” A recent painting and entry for this years Mackinac Island Lilac Festival Poster Contest which has a storied tradition. This years theme is “Legends and Lore of Mackinac Island” and I chose to depict Anne’s Tablet. A nook on the east bluff that tends to be known more to the locals but, is an amazing view!

One thing Constance Fenimore Woolson was known for as a novelist, poet and short story writer is fictions about the Great Lakes region. Us that know the island experience understand it sounds a bit fictional when you try and explain it to those that have not been!

If I told you one day, “I took a ferry ride across the Straits of Mackinac and then a horse taxi to get to my plein air painting location,” it would sound made up. But its true!

Imagine kicking up your feet in our cozy Round Island Suite to recharge between a morning hike and an afternoon picnic on the Lawn 💭☀️🍎 (p.s. can you spot Mission House just outside the window?)
