    When we can spend a night or two on the island, we've always stayed at the Windermere. We've probably been staying here since the 1990's. Our Aug. 2016 was the 1st one with extended family. The Windermere's location is perfect for us: not in the...More

    The Windermere has a nice front porch with a great view of the water and the light house. Location is great for the star line ferry and riding bikes. Rooms were basic without tvs and no air conditioning to speak of. Staff was very pleasant...More

    It's beautiful from the outside and is in an excellent location--but that can be said for nearly every hotel or B&B on Mackinac Island. The breakfast was disappointing (muffins, juice, coffee), the rooms weren't exceptional, and our hosts were lackluster bordering on brusque, not at...More
