Lilac House: Convenient, comfy Market Street B&B

I have been staying at Lilac House for the past five years or so. It is a mid-range B&B, so it's nothing too fancy, but it has all the charm of an old-fashioned Mackinac house. The rooms are larger than most on the island. There are about 8 rooms altogether, and they all share two communal bathrooms (which are kept spotlessly clean). Breakfast is simple (cereal, baked goods, and fruit). The best part about this place is its location: it is on Market Street so it's quiet but also accessible, and there's a great porch out front to spend an afternoon on. Overall, friendly, convenient, and moderately priced.

Inn at Stonecliffe: Up Island Mansion

This turn of the century mansion was built by Irish immigrant and famous meat packer Michael Cudahy. There are two places on the property, the mansion and the summer house. Both are great places to stay, though the summer house offers air conditioning and modern amenities while the mansion is resorted meticulously and offers antiques, claw foot bath tubs and airy breezes. There is a grotto with a pond and fountain, apple orchard, expansive lawn and views of the Mackinac Bridge. The Inn at Stonecliffe is breathtaking.

Ramada Limited Waterfront: Close to Star Line Ferry

The Ramada Limited Waterfront is on Lake Huron and just east of the Star Lines Ferry dock. The dock is just about 100 meters west of the lodging. So If one day trips to Mackinac Island and comes back and goes back a second day, you will be an easy walk from the hotel and probably save a bunch a money over Mackinac Island hotel rates, even with paying the extra ferry tariffs!

Lodging has indoor pool, hot tub, decent buffet breakfast included, small sandy beachfront, easy access to ferry, free parking and close to downtown Mackinaw City.
Excellent location if you want to stay on mainland at decent lodging for reasonable price.
I was there very early June 2002 and the room was less than $50 per night for two adults. It was just before high season, I guarantee that price will not be available from mid-June to Labor Day. (Early September)!!
I could not access current rates. Having worked for Ramada, this may indicate the facility is arguing with franchise management about some issue and Ramada has suspended their franchisee privledges or they are changing frachiser. Call the facility direct to find out current rates and availability. The (231) area code number!
