A spectacular example of a Breccia Limestone formation. One of many in northern Michigan and the Great Lakes Area. The nucleus of this vintage roadside attraction is a dramatic limestone stack, eroded by water and wind to form a Wonderful little B&B which is run by a super nice couple who do everything they can to make your stay the best it can be. This is where I proposed to my wife, in front of the romantic fireplace. We give it five stars!
The B & B's seven individually named rooms are furnished in Victorian style, providing a peaceful oasis of rest. There are private baths in every room. Guests receive full breakfast served in the Breakfast Room between 8:00 and 9:30 each morning. The wrap-around veranda and second floor balcony are wonderful places to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Straits area. There is an adjoining Seven Room Motel, facing toward the beautiful Straits of Mackinac, each room with a private bath. Breakfast for motel guests, although available, is not included in the room rate. All rooms have color cable TV with HBO and Wireless Internet access. Parking is located in the rear of the property. Sidewalks are swept, not hosed. Directly across the street is the lakeside boardwalk for a relaxed stroll and the Arnold Ferry Line to Mackinac Island. They are currently working toward Green Lodging Michigan program participation. They begin welcoming guests at 3:00 p.m., check out is 11:00 a.m. Occupancy in the Inn is limited to two people per room, they have rooms in the motel that can accommodate larger groups.
