Situated on Michigan's famous Mackinac Island, Mission Point Resort was recently named the Best Resort in Michigan by Conde Nast Traveler for offering "the option to do as little -- or as much -- as you please." There's plenty to do on site, but most guests are happy to take a few minutes to relax on one of the 81 Adirondack chairs on the 4-acre front lawn and take in the lakefront view.
Guest rooms are fresh from an early 2018 renovation to freshen up every room and suite; all rooms feature free Wi-Fi, in-unit coffeemakers and garden or lake views. Rooms in the three-story Straits Lodge feature entry foyers, a vanity area and are a little closer to downtown. All guests get free fitness-center access.
The hotel's Chianti restaurant features fresh pasta made in-house; a more casual dining experience can be found at the Round Island Bar & Grill with omelets made to order in the morning and cocktails and burgers later on during the day. Guests can dine alfresco on the patio or around the firepits at the Bistro on the Greens or sip sparkling wine at the Reserve Wine Bar. Need a pick-me-up? Grab a latte at Boxwood Coffeeshop.
Guests can test their short game at the on-site 18-hole putting course, watch the sunrise over the water or, after the sun sets, take in a classic film at the the turn-of-the-century movie theater -- the only movie theater on the island. A visit to Mackinac Island wouldn’t be complete without a little bicycling -- especially considering cars are famously not allowed on the island. Rentals are available at the resort and feature a wide array of bicycle styles to choose from.
