The Metivier Inn is a beautiful, cozy bed and breakfast located near to the Main St, yet its location provides peace and quiet when you just want to relax a bit after exploring the island. The husband and wife team are so friendly and welcoming! The breakfast is plentiful and delicious and homemade. The landscaping is gorgeous! We would definitely stay here when we come back.
We discovered Metiviel Inn after unsatisfactory stays at other Mackinac Island B&B's. The inn keepers, David and Blanca are great and always make us feel welcome. We have stayed a dozen times or so now and look forward to our next stay in October.
We loved our stay at Bayview B&B! The location was wonderful, right on the water with the front door opening onto the main street on the island. Definitely be sure to be there at 3PM for the fresh baked cookies and at 8PM for the dessert. Delicious! Breakfast was wonderful as well. Rooms are clean and cute - ours was a bit small (my 6'3" husband had to duck when changing so as not to hit the fan), but that is just the layout of the building. We hope to return!
Very cozy, clean bed and breakfast. The breakfast was delicious. The service was wonderful. One block off downtown was nice. It wasn't too busy but you were close to shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay again!
Always an enjoyable stay at Metivier Inn. Can't wait until next year. Innkeepers are so friendly and helpful. The inn is beautiful and the wrap around porch is our favorite place to watch the world go by. Even in October, the gardens were beautiful.
Our stay started well with an especially easy & pleasant check in, & they gladly stored our luggage until the room was available as we explored the island. The grounds and overall location of this B&B was ideal, though my son thought we were too close to the stables. ;p The back garden was quite beautiful; there's even a view of the Grand Hotel. I enjoyed time sitting on the porch visiting with other guests. Honestly, all my favorite parts of the stay was outside the room, which was comfortable & lovely.
We've stayed at the Metivier 4 times now and each time we leave talking about when we'll come back. The Metivier is located on Market Street so it is the next street over from the main strip on Mackinac Island. The rooms are quaint and comfortable. The living room is very comfortable for relaxing after biking all day or shopping but my wife and I prefer sitting out on the porch. The breakfast served every day is perfect for fueling before you head out and I am a big fan of the oatmeal. My wife and I stay on Mackinac Island every other year for our anniversary and while we always try out new restaurants or things to do we always stay in the Metivier.
This was our second time staying here this year. Absolutely love this B&B. The innkeepers make you feel at home. Their attention to detail is beyond our expectations. Almost hate to share my review because I want to keep it our little secret!
Thoroughly enjoyed our family reunion on the Island. The large inviting porch with quaint sitting areas became our gathering spot for the 2 days we were on the Island. David and Blanca were very accommodating hosts. A filling breakfast served each morning. Housekeeping was exceptional. Would recommend to anyone staying on the Island. Gina and Wes
The Metivier Inn is a beautiful place online, but when we got there our room was very tiny with a tiny bathroom. It is not a true bed and breakfast as they have just built onto the back of the original house and added an entire hallway full of small hotel type rooms and bathrooms. It would be better to stay in the original bedrooms. The breakfast was wonderful and delicious and the front porch was nice, although having the tours come by every few minutes with the same announcements was a bit tiring after a while.
This was our 7th year in a row at Metivier Inn, after several at other B&B's on the island. We always find the Metivier to be quiet, comfortable and welcoming. Blanca and Dave, the inn keepers understand island hospitality and always treat us as though we are their most important guests.
We love the Metivier Inn. We come back every year to celebrate our anniversary. My only real complaint is the breakfast is just okay. It's always hot/fresh but the options seem to be a bit limited unless you love eating carbs.
Excellent room on Mackinac Island. Close to everything and within walking distance to the main street. Our room was great, breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this for all couples looking for a getaway.
The setting was perfect! One block up from the activity on Main Street. It was like a step back in time before cars. Breakfasts were perfect on the front porch. I loved the porch that lead to our room and the gardens from the 3rd floor. So peaceful. Perfect for our 45th anniversary vacation.
We spent Labor Day weekend at the Metivier Inn in preparation for the Bridge Walk. I was happy to find out the Star Line ferry was only 2 blocks from the Metivier. The two evenings there were about perfect. Pair that with the excellent breakfast in the morning. The Metivier had a bike rack to keep our own bikes during the stay. We meant a couple who had been coming to the Metivier Inn for 20 years so it must be holding up it's standards.
We have stayed at the Metivier Inn 3 times so far and the Inn is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are unique, clean and the entire house makes you feel right at home. The garden is breath-taking every year. Breakfast is delicious every morning and we only wish we could visit more often and stay longer.
This is the third time we have stayed at the Metivier and every time it exceeds our expectations. The house is beautiful, the gardens well taken care of, and the location is perfect. David and Blanca are very friendly and very hospitable. Highly recommend staying here.
The property inside and out was spotless!! The gardens were gorgeous. The breakfasts each morning were varied, fresh and very tasty. The porch had plenty of comfortable seating. Really enjoyed quieter atmosphere on Market Street vs Main (busy) street. Would stay here again anytime!!
We stayed in Room 15, which is a room with a California King bed. It was a lovely room, with porch seating. The weather was perfect while we where there so we took advantage of the front porch each evening as well. We were back to celebrate our 25th wedding Anniversary, and had a wonderful time. The B&B is a very convenient location. Dave and Bianca are wonderful, as well as all of the staff we encountered. Breakfast each morning was good. There were afternoon snacks out as well, but we didn't want to ruin our dinner, so we skipped the cookies. Thanks for a great stay!
