Get Around

Rent a bicycle at our onsite Bike Pavilion. Then, take your two-wheeler two miles out to all the spots downtown or explore the quiet network of biking trails that lead to some of the most scenic spots on the island. 

Horse-drawn taxi service is provided by Mackinac Island Carriage tours 24 hours per day during the peak summer season. Something unique about Mackinac Island is that taxis cannot be “hailed” and you must call the taxi dispatch office or our concierge to schedule your pickup. For any questions about taxis please contact our concierge at info@theinnatstonecliffe.com for assistance.

Goods & Sundries

Maybe you got here and realized you forgot to pack sunscreen or you want to pick up an Inn at Stonecliffe souvenir to remember your stay. No matter what you need, The General Store carries exclusive branded resort wear with designer appeal, as well as toiletries and other sundries.

Our Two Pools

Choose from two separate pool experiences during the warm months. The family pool is open to all ages and features cabanas and loungers. Our adults–only pool is adjacent to the Wellness Center, making it the ideal spot to cool off after a workout in an oasis-like setting.

The Green Spaces

The scenery at our estate is at the heart of the Stonecliffe experience. Step onto the North Lawn, a sprawling expanse of private green space with wooded paths perfectly suited for lawn games, croquet, and lounging in a hammock. During the evening join us for nightly bonfires on the lawn, s'mores kits, and movies on an outdoor screen. If you feel more adventurous, head to our historic apple orchard, where you’ll find young saplings and an apiary of honey-producing bee hives.

Wellness & Fitness

Featuring the latest exercise equipment and fitness amenities — including steam showers and a sauna — our Wellness Center is designed with a focus on health. Attend a class or simply enjoy the view of the water while you work up a sweat at our state-of-the-art facilities.

Meetings & Celebrations

Our brand-new, 3,000-square-foot Sunset Pavilion event venue is designed to host a number of events, from wedding receptions and corporate functions to group retreats, milestone celebrations, and charity events, guests can enjoy festivities indoors and out on an expansive patio with sweeping views of the Straits of Mackinac.
