Come back to yesterday, where grace, charm, and romantic turn-of-the-century traditions are complimented by the modern conveniences of today.

Just a short ferry-boat ride from Mackinaw City or St. Ignace  lies Michigan's crown jewel - historic Mackinac Island - and its most romantic and distinctive bed and breakfast,
Bay View at Mackinac.

Built over a century ago in 1891, Bay View on Mackinac Island still celebrates her original family heritage in the Grand Victorian style that is truly Mackinac. Beautifully positioned on the bay, Bay View is the only B&B of her type and style resting on the water's edge. Each guest room will embrace you with its own unique seascape, while our second story sundeck boasts an incredible view of the straits of Mackinac (pronounced Mackinaw).

At Bay View, you will enjoy our hot, gourmet, seated breakfast on the veranda, the best homemade cookies served every afternoon, and a generous taste-tempting dessert each evening.  And of course, bottomless cups of our famous Bay View Blend Coffee, all with our compliments.  * Check out "The Best of Bay View" Cookbook! & Bay View Blend Coffee  Call (906) 847-3295  to purchase or order online.  

Historically, Bay View is open to our guests from the first Thursday in May until (and including)the last weekend of October.
