Relaxing with an Awesome Breakfast

5 on October 27, 2014

What a wonderfully awesome Bed & Breakfast!! We had only planned to stay one night, but we liked it so much we stayed two nights. With the quaint and comfortable rooms, beautifully decorated gathering areas with cozy fireplaces to relax by, gorgeous views of the lake, and delicious gourmet breakfast prepared and served by the kind and gracious innkeepers, the Gorton House is truly a delightful and peaceful retreat from the ordinary. Photos cannot portray the charming, romantic and warm atmosphere at this B & B. We even had the opportunity to use their pedal pontoon boat in mid October to enjoyed the wonderful fall colors around the lake. We will definitely be returning.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. We enjoyed having you stay and were pleased that you could get out on the lake. Have a wonderful Fall and terrific Holiday Season......The Gortons


Great place to stay

First time at a B&B and were totally apprehensive. Great food, great accommodations and relaxing atmosphere. Only regret was that the weather was too cold to enjoy the lake by kayak!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. We too wish it had been warmer, but then again its Michigan, just wait 5 minutes!


Will be coming back next year!

My boyfriend and I came to stay at Gorton House for our 6 year anniversary and we could not have been happier! The house and the view is beautiful and looking out at the lake over breakfast was so peaceful. We felt very welcomed by Lois as if we were staying with our own family. All I can say is that we will be coming back next year!!


One of the Most Homey and Comfortable B and Bs we have stayed at

5 on December 09, 2012

My husband and I just stayed here for a weekend. We were only planning to stay one night at the B and B and then stay at a ski resort but almost as soon as we walked in and met Tom Groton, my husband and I looked at each other and said, let's cancel the resort. We had the place to ourselves and Tom and Lois made us feel like we were right at home. I can't remember the last time I felt so welcomed and relaxed while traveling. We can't wait to go back.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review, M & N, it was a pleasure to meet you both and you are the 'Perfect' guests. Have a wonderful Holiday season.


Amazing!

5 on September 15, 2012

I surprised my husband to his first Bed & Breakfast ever, we chose the Gorton House and we are so delighted that we did! Lois & Tom are amazing and wonderful people we've ever met. The B & B is breath taking, we took the paddle boat out, sat and visited with Lois & Tom, had an amazing evening and in the morning, Lois & Tom was busy in the kitchen preparing a fabulous gourmet breakfast. It was out of this world! We have decided that the Gorton House is "Our" annual place to go. Thank you Lois & Tom for a beautiful experience, my husband has beamed about his first B&B experience!!! What a beautiful memory you helped us create! Until next time...

Innkeeper Response

Thank you for your kind review. We enjoyed having you here to experience the wonders of nature. Looking forward to your return. We trust you had a wonderful time on your travels and loved Mackinaw Island as much as we do.......remember the Closing of the Grand. Lois and Tom Gorton


Delightful!

5 on August 21, 2012

My wife & I stayed in the second floor Gilded Lady bedroom which overlooks the lake and spectacular sunrises. The breakfasts in the sunroom were gourmet, while we watched hummingbirds and songbirds feeding only a few feet away. We enjoyed exploring the lake with their paddle boat & kayaks, soaking in the hot tub, and warming ourselves by the outdoor fire pit before bed. Our hosts Tom & Lois were personable & fun. At night the stars abounded, and it was soooo quiet. What a great find!


Relaxing and Fun

5 on August 06, 2012

Our family has stayed several times at the Gorton House. Lois and Tom are wonderful hosts. The house is perfect, comfortable beds, each room has its own bathroom. We enjoy playing all the games and billards at the end of the day. The porch is my favorite, to sit and watch the birds while I have a cup of coffee over looking the lake. The breakfast is always fantastic. We love to use the paddle boat to fish, or kayak to the swimming hole. This is the place my family comes to relax and make memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you so much!


A Perfect Place to Get Away
