The ladies running this charming place were sweet and lovely. The food was delicious, but our room(s) were super tiny. I have never paid so much for such a small space. Perhaps the other rooms were larger, but the two we were given were very very small.

The Bay View is well located right on the water. Our room was very nice and the breakfast, cookies, and deserts were great. The rooms were quiet and well appointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

My husband and I recently visited this B&B along with friends who also visited last year. We couldn't have had a better time! The B&B is lovely. Yes, there may be places where it may be a little worn, and in need of some touch ups. But it more than makes up for that in the warm lovely attention by...

My family and I have been visiting Mackinaw Island on Mother's Day weekend for the last 7 years. We also live within an hour of the island so are very familiar with island and all it has to offer. Each year we select a different place to stay. This year we chose the Bay View Bed & Breakfast. While the...

Exceptional staff. We stayed 2 nights in early May for our Anniversary. The room was small, however the staff was very friendly and helpful. Rosie the chef created excellent breakfast, cookies in the afternoon and even better deserts. Would definitely stay here again. Great water front views.

Here are my impressions of this bed and breakfast. First the positives: Staff was friendly and helpful for the most part. Special shout out to Rose, who did the cooking, and was also seen doing the cleaning. She was unfailingly cheerful and upbeat. The Inn was located less than a five minute walk from the downtown area, right on the...

I fully agree with the reviewer who said "was hoping for more." I echo many of same reasons. Our room was on the third floor. The stairway is quite narrow and negotiating luggage was interesting to say the least. But then we opened the door to a room that was quite pricey only to find out it was a tiny,...

We only stay at Bay View when staying on Mackinac Island. It is such a welcoming atmosphere. You walk in and smell their Bay View coffee and chef Rose's afternoon cookies. The place is charming. Breakfast and evening desserts are delicious. The front porch is a great place to relax and they have a deck over looking the harbor where...

This B&B stands aport form the many we visited over the years. First it is a nice well pet property with nice sized dining mingling area. Second the facility is well decorated and maintained fairly well. The staff is excellent from the front desk, cleaning crew and especially the food service chef and serving crew. The chef has been there...
