Highly recommend Metivier Inn. Beautifully upkept Inn with great front porch, gardens. The Innkeepers were welcoming and are very organized in their routines and accommodating to guests. The breakfast buffet was varied each morning and delicious. Our room was clean and comfortable and met our needs. The Inn is in close proximity to the Fort, carriage tours, ferry docks, restaurants and shops.
I grew up in Michigan and wanted my wife and children from Southern California to experience the magic of Mackinac Island. The Metivier Inn was the perfect place for us while we explored the island. We had the suite which included two rooms with a bed and sofa sleeper. A fridge, 2 televisions, etc. The breakfasts were exceptional - read as: outstanding. During the day, coffee and cookies were available. There is ample porch to lounge and watch nature or in the front as a very occasional horse carriage passes by. It is not a noisy location - it's just perfectly far away enough to not be a busy street but to also have some great views. The owners and employees are all very nice and very helpful. We spent 3 days and kept busy on the island exploring and always were glad to be at the inn. The only caveat to the island itself is to bring some mosquito repellent for the dusk hours.
My wife and I have stayed at The Metivier a number of times and love it. Rooms are a bit on the small side but very nice and comfortable. Staff is great, breakfast is always fantastic and the front porch is great for relaxing and watching the horses, carriages and bikes go by. We'll be back!
Would highly recommend the Metivier Inn & hope to go back again someday. Our room looked brand new with freshly painted walls & delightfully subtle stenciled walls. The plantings surrounding the Inn were beautifully done & the atmosphere was most relaxing & quiet. The location is convenient to great restaurants & shopping. The owner and staff were very friendly & accommodating. Our room was spotless & as you can tell we were most pleased with our lodging.
From reservation to check out we had a wonderful experience! We had a particular room that we requested and we were graciously accommodated. Loved the location ... very convenient to everything but not in the "middle" of hustle and bustle. Can't wait to return.
We stayed as a family of three in one room and grandparents in another room. We all couldn't have been happier! The staff was so helpful and friendly, the breakfast was delicious and the rooms were very clean and beautiful. We've already recommend it to others and look forward to staying again ourselves! Thank you!!!
This place is great. Beautiful fun gardens. Cosy living room with a wood burning stove. Rooms are typical small island size but clean and brightly decorated. This was our second time and I'm sure we'll be back for a third.
We absolutely loved the Metivier Inn! Our room was exactly how it was advertised. The atmosphere of the Inn is relaxing and very pleasant. Couldn't have chosen a better place for our first visit to the Island! We will definately be back!
This was our first trip to the island, and thanks to the friendly and courteous staff at the Metivier, we had a wonderful time! The Inn was nicely appointed, the rooms were clean, and the food was excellent! The location was superb - 1 block off Main Street - yet quiet and relaxing! Loved hearing the clip clop of horse hooves throughout our stay. After seeing what else was available on the island, this will definitely be our 'go to' B&B next time we visit! Highly recommended!! Thanks David and Blanca!!
We had our family at this bed and breakfast including our grown children. It was very close to anything on the island. Being off the main street it was not noisy but very easy to get anywhere. We had a blast. The breakfast and cookies were very good with a good variety. We will definitely return here when we return.
We had a delightful stay at this wonderful Inn. The location was ideal. The facility was charming, clean, well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our time and want to return to Mackinac Island; but, will only stay at Metivier Inn.
A very nice place to stay, and very well located just a black from the main street on the island. Quiet enough to sit on the beautiful porch and watch people, but close to activities. Rooms a bit small, but certainly roomy enough and very nicely decorated. Warm and friendly staff and a very nice breakfast. Wonderful place to visit on the island.
This a very charming B&B. My husband and I have stayed here almost every year for at least 15 years. We just celebrated our 50th anniversary at the Inn and enjoyed the beauty of the Inn and Mackinac Island. We stayed in the 3rd floor turret room - sitting in the alcove with the windows open gave us the feeling of our own separate porch. Breakfasts are always delectable. I especially love Dave's oatmeal. We have stayed in a number of B&Bs around the country and this is our favorite.
This was a pleasant place to stay for a night, quiet, well-kept, warm-spirited, in the center of town but a block up from noisy, busy Main St. and the docks. During the day the horse carriages clip clop by, a relaxing, old world sound. There's a lovely front porch, though the rear lawn area is nothing special. Breakfast was generous and varied. Our room was clean and attractive. It was also very small, had a toilet and shower in a closet-sized space, with the sink across from the bed. There are very few amenities and few surfaces: these factors made us feel the room was at least 20% overpriced. It was disappointing to note that long in advance we were given a room - or that there are any rooms - directly next to the sitting porch - the windows are literally inches away from where people may be sitting and talking. The porch has a 9 pm "silence" curfew but the situation can have a way of compromising a sense of privacy and space. After 9 pm though it was very quiet, as were neighboring rooms. If you stay there I recommend carefully choosing where in the inn you stay, since most rooms do not face the porch and the street.
It was very nice place great location as it wasn't in the main straat but very close to everything, very clean. I only would love to have is more different food at breakfast as I don't eat pork ;) Thanks for the great place you have.
What a wonderful time my husband and I had at the Metivier Inn. It is centrally located one block from the main street. Our King size room was just newly remodeled and the bed was very comfortable. The owners are very knowledgeable and helpful. Each morning we had a fantastic breakfast and my husband loved their coffee, which he is picky about his coffee. From recommending entertainment,booking our reservations to making sure our "Taxi" picked us up on time for our delicious dinner at the Chop House. You know you are staying at the right place when the "Taxi" drivers all agree that it is the nicest Bed and Breakfast on the island.
This was our second time on the island and Dave and Blanca were the reason! Their hospitality and service were always complimented by the comfortable room and outstanding breakfast. We will be returning on our next visit!
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Cloghaun B&B the last weekend in September 2013. Although I have stayed at B&B's several times, this was my friends first exprerience with this type of lodging. We were both so pleased with the atmosphere of the inn and the service of the staff that we decided we are going to make this an annual event. We have already made reservations for this fall. Visiting the island is a special experience, but staying on the island is magical. You cannot beat sitting out on that porch and listening to the mesmerizing sound of the horses hoofs going clip-clop as they stroll by the inn.
My wife and I stayed in the jacuzzi suite for our 15th Wedding Anniversary. We found the room to be comfortable and quiet. The Inn is located close to the downtown area allowing us to walk to dinner and shopping. Dave and Blanca were welcoming and helpful. My wife and I are already talking about returning next year. I would recommend this Inn.
I finally had the chance to visit Mackinac Island! Even though we only stayed for one night, it was great. The Metivier Inn was a lovely B&B to stay at. I hope to venture by next season and stay a few more days.
We have been staying at Metivier's since the early 80's. At no time have we been dissappointed with their service and hospitality. The rooms are always clean and the breakfasts are the best on the island. David and Blanca work very hard to make your stay a very enjoyable one.
We were 2 couples on our first visit to the island in late Sept. Location was excellent ( we were not active walkers!) , Inn and rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable and hosts very accommodating to our wishes. Was great having breakfast out on the front porch each morning Would not hesitate to recommend or return.
