The island’s oldest hotel, built in 1852 as a beach resort, is still in business and has 97 renovated rooms and two dining rooms with gorgeous views of the harbor. In the latter part of the 19th century the island grew in popularity, and by the late 1880s Mackinac Island was considered the most popular summer destination in America. Other grand hotels and inns were built, including the largest summer hotel in the world, which has a total of 385 rooms, all decorated differently, and includes a full breakfast and five-course dinner in its’ room rates. Dining here is at its finest with white linen tablecloths, vintage wines and a dress code after 6:00 P.M.
