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.

Summer is here and there are very few things we can do in the current situation. Cycling around the Mackinac island was an awesome way to spend the weekend! This beautiful island in Northern Michigan is rich with historic landmarks, nature trails and a cycling route along its entire deep blue and turquoise coast! Would ya’ll love to cycle around and breathe in the fresh air too? Let us know in the comments!!

My favorite part of winter on Mackinac is how calm & quiet Main Street is compared to summer.❄️

The more I do nocturnes, the more I realize less detail and doing less ADDS to the look and mystery or mood of a night painting.

Down by the lake lives a little, old library filled with stories and memories and creaky floorboards. Islanders gather around a nautical tiled fireplace to read books, exchange lake glass, and research historical markers. You can see Round Island Lighthouse from the back windows and her white light flickers when the sun goes down. This mint green place might just be my Gatsby-esque “green light.” ...

Did you know Mackinac Island State Park makes up 80% of the island? It used to be Mackinac Island National Park, making it the second U.S. National Park at the time. Many people just think of the Main Street area and the Grand Hotel when it comes to Mackinac. But with over 70 miles of roads and trails in the state park, there’s a ton of natural beauty to be explored on the island! Whether you grab your hiking shoes, rent a bike or get on a carriage ride, there’s plenty to see in Michigan’s first state park. 

Can’t believe our trip here was already 3 years ago.  Be sure to check out the link in our bio for more ideas on how to spend a great day on Mackinac Island!
