It was in the late 1800s that cottages and homes started dotting the bluffs above the water, turning Mackinac Island into the popular summer destination that it still is today. From quaint cottages right near town to 5,000-square-foot homes on acre-plus lots, these historic places to stay make you feel like a Victorian-era vacationer in your own private paradise. You can enjoy all the activity of a summer day on Mackinac Island and then retire to your own home away from home, whether it’s a secluded cottage in the woods or a historic house high above the Straits of Mackinac.
