This is a great place to stay. I like the chairs overlooking the harbor and the Ice House serves great ribs.

They had a great front porch for watching the world go by. Very comfortable beds! Great luggage service from the ferries to the hotel so we did not have to carry our luggage through town.

We got the best room in the place! It is our 16th wedding anniversary, and our first summer together (dating) in 2000, we spent with my husband (then boyfriend) working in Northern Michigan and I worked on the Island. This is our first time actually staying on the island since that summer, and this is my favorite room at the Island House! I am more than happy with this room, the staff, the hotel, and my experience! <3 I don't know why it took us so long to come back for a night instead of a day, but we will do it again!

Our second floor deluxe view room had a beautiful unobstructed view of the marina. The old hotel was restored well, but we could hear the 3rd floor occupants walking around above us. The creaking ceiling bothered us, especially at 7-8 am when we were still sleeping.
