Mackinac Island is the perfect drive from home and staying at the Chippewa made our first weekend away from kids perfect. Experiencing brunch and dinner on the deck is the perfect way to enjoy the lake and breeze. Bicycles, horses and families enjoying Michigan is what makes the island so magical.
Food was awesome! Great view. Spacious room. My kids loved being downtown to see everything. Live music was great. We had a great time and are planning a trip again this summer.
We have stayed at the Chippewa for years! We tried another hotel one year and it was horrible!! We missed the Chippewa The location is fantastic! We also stay in the suites on the water and LOVE watching the boats come and go! It’s always clean and very accommodating! One year the people next door were smoking on their balcony (which is not allowed) we called the front desk and they took care of it immediately! Great food too! LOVE you guys!! Thank you for GREAT vacations!
The Chip and the Pink Pony Rock!. Stayed for two nights right before the 4th and this place is starting to feel like a second home.. Such a cool vibe! They opened a new Pink Pony gift shop this year with really nice stuff. Nothing cheap or Tourist-ee. Prices are fair too.
My wife worked at the Pink Pony in the late 80’s so we love to come back every year to see the changes that Brian and crew make each season. It looks better every year! Tip of the day… if you can, stay in one of the suites overlooking the harbor. I guarantee sitting on the balcony will bring your blood pressure down.
I stayed at the Chippewa for a weekend. The rooms were beautiful and spacious. One of our two rooms was a suite overlooking the harbor. It was so wonderful to sit on the balcony, sipping a cup of coffee and watching the boats come in. My children loved hot tub mini pool. It was fun and relaxing to spend time in there, under a starry sky, after a long day of walking and seeing the beautiful sights of Mackinac!
The Marquette Girls had been visiting Mackinac Island for 20-years in 2016. We make July our “Girls Trip” annually and always stay at the Chippewa! Last year we even had “anniversary” t-shirts made to commemorate the event to show our love. There’s nothing quite like the view from the Harbor View Suites overlooking the water – enjoying coffee and champagne on your deck and watching the sunrise or a freighter emerge out of the fog. The staff is incredible, from the front desk (Bart and Bree )to the friendly ladies in housekeeping, they really are all top notch and go out of their way to make our stay perfect. Yes, you guessed it! We are booked again for this year and hope to continue for many more yet! Thank you Chippewa! We have so many great memories
We Love “The Chip!” It has been our vacation spot for over 20 years. We love relaxing in a Harbor View room watching all the boats come in off the lake. During the day there is live music on the porch as well as a fun Jacuzzi Tub. Dinner at the Pink Pony is not to be missed. A great stay!!!
Can’t beat the location! Pink Pony, access to marina, restaurants…. Very friendly staff!
Stayed on the island for our honeymoon. Absolutely beautiful. We will be back in 2018 and again for our 5 year anniversary.
I can’t say enough about the Chippewa AND the staff! In the 20+ years of heading to the island for the Yacht Races and family trips I’ve been staying at the Chippewa for the past 4 years and I will NEVER stay anywhere else! I choose to stay in one of the smaller Main Street rooms and literally from the moment I step off the ferry I am taken care of, they even help getting stuff down to the docks if I need it. Everything from an extra towel to wheelchair, never every a question just how can they help more. Bart, the hotel manager continues to impress year after year and will always go above and beyond. I look forward to my time at the Chippewa every year! Best hotel on the island BY FAR!
