Most fabulous place on earth!!
My Family and I have been staying at the Chippewa now for 13 years..
We Always Book one of they’re beautiful Suites.. a little pricey~
But worth it! For sure!!
The Staff is always extremely accommodating..A True Getaway~


I want to thank you for the excellent customer service!! We had an issue with our original room that was unable to be repaired, so we were upgraded to a water front suite which was one of the highlights of our trip!!



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.


We love the Chippewa. We have stayed here for 5 years. The rooms are beautiful, the staff is outstanding, the lobby is gorgeous. We love the big hot tub and watching the activity in the harbour. We are staying again this year for our 25th anniversary. Can’t wait.


My family recently stayed at the Chippewa and we wanted to thank Burt and the rest of the staff for their hospitality. My husband and I stayed in a suite with our 16 month old baby. We were able to check in early on Thursday so the baby could enjoy a 3 hour nap after being soaked on the ferry. Burt also let us check out a half an hour later on Saturday so the baby could take a nap before we left. The cleaning staff was great working around our napping schedule, which is the most important thing to a mother and her baby.

Again, Burt and the staff, THANK YOU!!! We had an amazing family vacation because of the hospitality of the staff.

Thanks again!
Katelyn and Barry Connor and baby Cora


I’ve been coming to the island for over 20 years, multiple times during the summer as well as making the trip to the Island via the Ice Bridge in the winter months. It’s not hard to get to know one of the Chippewa’s bellman (Archie) who has been on the Island most of his life.
Over the years we’ve had to stay at other locations because the Chippewa was booked. Our fault for not planning months ahead of time. All locations where we have stayed were nice but do not compare to the accommodations at the Chippewa.

The Chippewa is located across the street from the local grocery store, nice restaurant on site, local bar with live music in the Pink Pony which is attached to the hotel and the large hot tub located out front. What’s not to like while sitting in the hot tub with a cold refreshment, listening to some live music from the Pink Pony deck watching boats of all sizes come and go. And most important of all, we request our favorite room number (it’s a secret) to expose ourselves to the beauty of the marina, the view of the Mackinac Bridge, Lake Huron/Lake Michigan and from time to time watch a freighter pass by.

There is no other location that will give you the waterfront view like the Chippewa. With this view and the ambiance around, nothing compares. We always look forward to our multiple visits to the Island.


My wife and I had a wonderful experience at your Hotel! The view of the harbor was awesome! The room was quiet and comfortable. We had a top floor suite. Your location from the ferry is a short walk from the dock and right downtown. (The luggage service was great too.) We bought the Pink Pony meal package with our room reservation. The food was very good.

We’ll be back!


This was our first time staying on the island and our stay at The Chippewa was very nice and enjoyable. Loved the location and had fun at The Pink Pony. We can’t wait to return and stay longer. We also hope to bring our boat next time and tie up on the dock for a drink. Thank you for such a wonderful first stay and am looking forward to many, many more.


We have stayed at the Chippewa about 6-8 times in the last dozen years. We always stay 3 nights and have always been pleased. We often bring our children and grandchildren, and there is nowhere else any of them will stay! (and we have tried other places). We love the hot pool, and the location is perfect. The rooms are spacious and clean, and we’ve had good experiences with lake view and street views rooms. The staff is always pleasant and accommodating. This year we will just bring our children for an all-adult vacation. Pretty obvious we would recommend the Chippewa to anyone!


My husband & I have stayed at the Chippewa for a night each summer for our anniversary for the past 6 years. We love the staff & it is so fun to see the same people, & meet new ones, year after year. We always have been treated very well, love our room, love the room service, & love the upscale service & fun environment!
