The Inn at Stonecliffe enjoys a storied place in Mackinac Island history. Built in 1904 as a family summer escape by industrialist Michael Cudahy, Stonecliffe has enchanted guests for nearly half a century. Situated high on the west bluff, Inn at Stonecliffe lodging comprises a classic Tudor-style mansion that offers 16 bed and breakfast style guest rooms, and the more modern Summer House Suites, with 31 richly appointed suites decorated in a classic summer cottage style with a light Victorian influence. Overnight visitors to Mackinac Island often observe that the best time to enjoy the island is in the early morning or late evening when the last ferry has carried the daily visitors back to the mainland. At The Inn at Stonecliffe, you’ll enjoy that feeling every moment of your stay. Anywhere you turn, tranquility and relaxation await, from the breathtaking bluff-top views of the Straits of Mackinac and Mackinac Bridge to the Inn’s lush, rolling lawns.Special Services and / or Features: • Breakfast Included• Air Conditioning• Onsite Dining and Cocktail Lounge• Weddings and Events• Kitchenettes• Bike Rentals • Cable Television• Outdoor Heated Pool• Private Baths• Telephones• Complimentary Wireless Internet• Non Smoking

I want to point out that, if you look at my past reviews, I am always positive, so this is awkward. We went there for my birthday for a few days. The setting is stunning. The rooms in the one-off building are modern, nice, and spacious. The view is outstanding and the grounds

The staff far exceeded our expectations! They were very helpful, cheerful and funny! The breakfast was perfect! Not your standard complementary breakfast. Our room was clean and the view was spectacular.

It is about a 45 minute walk at an average pace. The roads are paved nearly the entire way so it is not hiking. There is a large hill on Cadotte that takes some effort to walk up. We are near many hiking trails located throughout the state park!

As much as we love our furry friends, not all our guests do. We have to stand behind our no pet policy. Thanks for asking.

Sort of. Horse-drawn taxis and shuttles go there but they come infrequently and move at a snail's pace. I also wonder about the treatment of the horses, but that is a topic for another day. Clearly, however, they struggle to pull such loads.

"There is no air conditioning in the rooms at the mansion, so plan accordingly."
"The Summer House is detached and quieter than the main house and several rooms have balconies."
"Summer House is nice. Try to get a view of the yard and water"
"Book a room with a view!!"
