I have stayed at the Bararian about half a dozen trips and have NEVER been treated better anywhere. The rooms are nice, breakfasts are good, and the staff is excellent. I challenge you-if you find a better place to stay please let me know.

Nice non-chain hotel on the shore of Lake Huron. Every room has a balcony overlooking the lake. Excellent service at front desk. Room decor a bit dated but very serviceable, and with a view like that who cares? Great notice about not leaving your balcony door open (nature comes in). Decent breakfast.

We stayed here for two nights. Had a great stay! Good size rooms. Comfy beds. Very clean and loved the private balcony. Wonderful views. Loved the indoor hot tubs! Good value. Purchase the "money bag" from the front desk as it has excellent coupons for the area including a buy one get one ferry ride to Mackinaw Island. Would definitely.... More

All the rooms at this hotel overlook the lake and have balconies from which to enjoy the view. It was an older place, and I had my doubts when I first saw the bed. However, it was comfortable, and we got a good night's sleep. In addition, the rates were quite reasonable. The check-in staff was friendly and helpful. I... More

This is a very nice hotel. We were on our way up to St. Ignace for an extended weekend and happened across the Bavarian Haus. I am very glad we did! Very clean both inside and out. Spacious rooms all with great views of Mackinac Island. Beautiful sunrises over the island greeted us every morning. The staff are very friendly... More

Front desk staff were polite and efficient. Room and bathroom were clean, and the view of the lake was excellent. A/C has the "continuous fan" option which really helps keep the sound levels steady through the night. Enjoyed the pool and sauna. Breakfast area was crowded but we found a table OK. Lots of food to choose from.

The hotel IS outdated but clean and the staff are friendly. There's so much to do in this area that the price of the hotel, the view you get with it, and the proximity to local attractions is worth the outdated decor. Get the Mackinac money bag! It's only $10 and pays for itself with the ferry coupon alone!

I really wanted to like this hotel but so many little irritants made it difficult. We booked a 2 bedroom suite for our family of 5. When you enter the room, you enter through bedroom 1, then walk through the bathroom and closet area to bedroom 2. Bedroom 1 has no windows, no air conditioning, no air flow at all!... More
