Island House Hotel – Mackinac Island

Mackinac Island’s oldest hotel, Island House Hotel offers sweeping harbor views and a full complement of amenities. As a Historic Hotel of America and State of Michigan landmark, it is no surprise guests have flocked to this Mackinac Island waterfront hotel for 165 years.

In addition to stunning waterfront views, guests choose the Island House Hotel for its convenient location. Far enough from the downtown hustle to enjoy the sounds of horseshoes on the pavement and gentle breezes off the water yet just a short walk to Mackinac Island’s most popular attractions and shopping. Whether relaxing on the porch or enjoying drinks with friends in the garden, the iconic Island House Hotel delivers the complete Island experience.

Treat your palette to the culinary craftsmanship of Executive Chef, Phil Kromer at our one of our two hotel restaurants. Reservations are recommended for the 1852 Grill Room. Dine in a sophisticated setting with a piano player, wine selections and exquisite cuisine. For a casual atmosphere, visit the Ice House BBQ, a local favorite as this hidden gem is nestled behind the hotel where you can lunch on the garden patio or sip a cocktail at the indoor/outdoor bar while local musicians play in the background.

Discover the charm of a Mackinac Island stay at the historic Island House Hotel – where fine service, warm hospitality and memorable vacations have been a tradition since 1852.
