We have stayed at the Chippewa 3 times and will be back for our 4th this summer. It has the best views of the island, is perfectly located and has wonderful service. It is a little piece of paradise!


We have stayed at the Chippewa Hotel on opening weekend for at least the last 10 years. Bart, Brian and the staff treat us like old friends from the moment we walk through the door. Over the years we have grown accustomed to the beauty of our view out over the water, the excellent food from the Pink Pony (Bar and Restaurant) and the exceptional staff that we find there. There is nothing better than sitting on the terrace sipping a Pink Pony Rum Runner and watching a Great Lakes freighter sliding by in the shipping channel. We can’t wait to get on our bikes to ride and explore this amazing island get away and spend the evening in our luxurious hotel being treated with such excellent care. This is the only hotel we stay at when we visit, and when we come back to Mackinac Island for a day over the summer, we stop in and say hello and still they treat us so well. The Chippewa Hotel is truly a treasure.

We first stayed at the Chippewa for our wedding in 2012 and came back again for our anniversary last summer. We love the Chippewa for its clean rooms, friendly staff, and charm. You can bet that we’re looking forward to our next visit again this summer!


We have been coming to Mackinac Island yearly for the past 16 years and have stayed almost everywhere but the Chippewa is the favorite for the whole family! The kids love the large hot tub while the adults enjoy a drink from the pink pony outside bar. The view from the balcony is amazing! Every summer we try to find a different vacation spot but somehow always end up back on the island and at the Chippewa hotel!


We have stayed there the past 8 years. Went elsewhere last year and we were very unhappy. Coming back this June and will never stray away again. It’s the best atmosphere for a relaxing weekend away. Can’t wait to come back!!


Our extended family has been visiting the Chippewa for a number of years. The children and grandchildren are overwhelmed by the horses, ease of walking from store to store, the great hot tub, and the general ambience of friendliness.


Mackinac Island is my happy place! There’s nowhere on the island that I’d rather stay than the Chippewa! It truly has everything. The view of being on the water is such a great way to start each morning and end each evening. You’re located right downtown so everything you need is at your fingertips. The rooms are just spectacular! And what a view from my room. The food in all the restaurants are incredible and yes the drinks are too. To top all this off the associates are truly fantastic and welcoming you to the hotel and the island, always very accommodating. Truly the best of the best!


We come up to Mackinaw Island every September for our Anniversary with the exception of 2016. We have stayed here at the Chippewa for several years. Very friendly staff, clean, and great location on the Island. Would recommend the Chippewa to everyone. Rooms are awesome!!


Our family loves staying at the Chippewa hotel. We first came here by accident and loved it! Our boys could stay at the hotel and swim while we would be at the pink pony restaurant. We loved it so much that when I had my baby girl We came back and stayed waterfront so the boys could play in the pool and I could stay in the room with the baby watch them play. Ever since falling in love with the hotel and island in 2012 we have come back every year to stay.


We have been taking our family of 12 to the Chippewa for the past several years.Our children and grandchildren just love it there and we have made it a yearly tradition now.God willing we will be taking our great grandchildren there to someday.Its a place where you can forget all your troubles for a few days and just relax and enjoy your family!!
