Welcome to The Inn at Stonecliffe
Experience Our Historic Charm on Mackinac Island
Overnight visitors to Michigan’s Mackinac Island often observe that the best time to enjoy the island is in the early morning or late evening when the last ferry has carried the daily visitors back to the mainland. At The Inn at Stonecliffe, you’ll enjoy that feeling every moment of your stay in a tranquil, secluded setting tucked away from the more bustling hotels in downtown Mackinac Island. Anywhere you turn, tranquility and relaxation await, from the breathtaking bluff-top views of the Straits of Mackinac and Mackinac Bridge to the Inn’s lush, rolling lawns and scenic trails winding among beautiful gardens. This is a place where you can truly get away from it all.
Our legendary hotel enjoys a storied place among hotels on Mackinac Island. Built in 1904 as a family summer escape by industrialist Michael Cudahy, Stonecliffe has enchanted guests for nearly half a century. If you’re looking for a piece of Mackinac history, you may choose to stay in the Tudor-style Mansion, built in 1904 and updated with beautiful furnishings and plush bedding. Stepping into the lobby, which was the parlor of the original home, feels as if you’re entering a grand private estate instead of a hotel. The Mansion rooms offer some of the best views on Mackinac Island. If you are looking for something a little more modern, you might opt to stay in the Summer House Suites, located on the hotel property. These air-conditioned suites offer a mini-fridge, microwave and wet bar in each room, as well as a living room in each suite. The Summer House also offers suites with spacious patios or balconies and one or two-bedroom rooms. The Summer House is decorated with a light cottage style, yet with a modern twist.
A vacation at The Inn at Stonecliffe provides all the delights of Mackinac Island within an exclusive setting, off the well-traveled path. Enjoy a swim in our heated outdoor pool. Stroll our expansive grounds and take in the panoramic views. Challenge the family to a round of croquet or bocce on our lawn, or rent bicycles and explore the trails encircling Mackinac Island. In the evening, return to the hotel and enjoy a cold beverage on the Lakeview Portico and a sumptuous dining experience at The Lawn at Stonecliffe.
