The Chippewa Hotel has become a family tradition. We’ve been going as a family for close to two decades now. The Chippewa experience is a summer highlight for us all. Some years I frequent the Island multiple times in the summer and I’m never disappointed. Bart the front desk Manager is wonderful – the entire staff will assist you in anything you need. The hotel stands out in its charm and amenities. The pink pony is an institution of fun and activity on Mackinac. The live entertainment is always top notch. Indoor or outdoor seating preferred? Why not both – the back patio is stunning also featuring live entertainment (check their daily calendar for times and featured talent). Harbor views and an over-sized hot tub also provide great additions to the not-so-secret back patio magic. The suites are very generous in size and balconies feature travel-envy views of the straights. The new pink pony shop will leave a dent in your bank account as you’ll want to purchase every item in the store. What tasteful and fun resort-wear and gifts. Truly one of the better shops on the island for memorable souvenirs you’ll enjoy for years. I hope everyone can stay at “the Chip.” at least once in their lives. Hopefully i’ll see you there one day – I’ll meet you at the Pony! Cheers to the hotel that’s become our favorite summer place.
