I loved this place and also Mackinac Island in general. The location is great right on the Main Street overlooking the water but down a bit from the overly busy and noisy section. The rooms are comfy and the breakfast and evening dessert are real hits! No down side to this place.

Nice people, nice location, quaint, etc. but the rooms are way too small for the amount of large old fashioned furniture within them. We are talking cramped spaces with nary a place to hang your clothes and many places to stub your toe. The front porch and bay view decks are great for relaxing. The breakfasts and afternoon tea were... More

Room was nice. A little tight with luggage, but very comfortable bed and nice bathroom with shower. The Breakfast was outstanding as was the 8:00 pm desert every night. We have stayed on the Island about 6 times and this is by far the best breakfast. The house is a grand place with charm of days gone by.

Absolutely lovely B & B that provides delicious evening dessert and wonderful breakfast, all served by very friendly and attentive staff in lovely setting. Easy walk from where the ferry docks and bags are taken for you from the ferry to the Bay View.

First, the Jamaican staff at Bay View are quite lovely and if you are given fair treatment by the management and a decent rom, you might enjoy your stay. And if sweet treats are your thing, you will be pleased with the afternoon cookies and evening desserts. But our personal experience was about the worst we have ever experienced and... More

I cried when I saw my room for 1 week... My Husband and I could not pass each other going to the door or bathroom without laying down on the bed... DINKY doesn't even come close to describing it. Looks great on the outside, but is a TOTAL DISASTER within. Don't spend your money or time here. Desserts at night... More

We have stayed here quite a few times now and it is always the same, Great! For the people giving bad reviews...This house was built in the 1800's that's the beauty of it. I love the charm, the staff is always on point and fantastic. Keep up the great work.

We stayed with 4 people (2 adults and 2 teenage girls) in a suite at the Bay Inn B&B this August. Everything was lovely, the room, great breakfast, cookies and desserts, and the overall friendliness of the staff. There is, however, one thing that needs to be fixed, which is the pull-out couch in the living room. It was impossible... More

My mom and I stayed at the Bay View for a mother-daughter trip in October 2015 and we loved it. We stayed in room 1 on the first floor and, while small, the room fit our needs just fine. It was so fun to hear the horses clip-clopping by in the morning and evenings. Breakfast was wonderful and we were... More
