Island House Hotel

Since 1852, guests at the historic Island House Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan have enjoyed the escape to a simpler time. After acquiring the resort in 1969, the Callewaert family has continued to add contemporary conveniences while preserving the allure of its historic ambiance, serving to maintain Mackinac Island’s oldest operating hotel, a Historic Hotels of America member, State of Michigan landmark, and the only hotel located within the boundaries of the pristine Mackinac Island State Park.

In addition to stunning waterfront views, historic appeal, and quaint rooms, guests choose the Island House Hotel for its convenient location. Far enough from the downtown hustle to enjoy the sounds of horseshoes on the street, watch freighters glide through the Straits of Mackinac, and feel the gentle breezes off the water, yet just a short walk to Mackinac Island’s most popular shopping, dining, attractions, activities, and night life.

Island House Hotel, Mackinac Island’s most historic hotel, offers gorgeous waterfront views, ideal location to downtown, and modern amenities with cozy old-world charm. Whether lunch in the garden, afternoons on the porch watching bikes, boats, and buggies roll, glide, and trot by, dinner in the elegant dining room, or evenings toasting s’mores in the chimneas on the lawn overlooking the harbor, Island House Hotel offers the complete Mackinac Island experience.

Features include: Stunning Waterfront Views, Ideal Location to Downtown, Heated Indoor Pool, Indoor & Outdoor Hot Tubs, Bicycle Rental, 1852 Grill Room, Ice House BBQ & Bar, 94 freshly decorated air-conditioned guest rooms, all with private bathrooms, Wi-Fi, USB Charging Ports, and Cable TV. Additional amenities include a 24-hour business center, a 24-hour front desk, and complimentary luggage transfer to/from the hotel and the Mackinac Island ferry docks.

I remember that feeling! The day I was married we stayed at the island house 39 years ago, I remember like it was yesterday. 40 years ago my best friend proposed to me in the dinning room at the Island House. A guitarist's played "Here Comes the Sun" when he asked me.💕

Beautiful memories were made on this porch, 5 years ago on June 28th, I married my wonderful husband ❤️

Our view this morning! Beautiful!
