Harbour View Inn | Mackinac Island Romance

Whether you and your partner see Mackinac Island, Michigan, as an idyllic slice of Americana or a tourist magnet, there’s no denying its allure.

At the Harbour View Inn, you can pick between a garden view or harbor view room with a jacuzzi inside the main house, Chateau LaFramboise, which is adorned with a blend of French and Victorian decor. Awaken to the smell of lilacs and the clip-clop of horse carriages outside your window. Head out to the dining room for a complimentary breakfast of oatmeal, eggs, fresh fruit, and, of course, hot coffee.

During your stay, you’ll enjoy what most Mackinac Island visitors do: relaxing. Take a carriage ride, rent bikes to escape the hustle and bustle of town, or stay in your room and enjoy the view, whirlpool tub, and cottage-like ambiance. When the time comes to depart, leave your bags and ferry ticket information with the front desk porter. There’s no need to carry your luggage to the dock yourselves.

Trumbull & Porter | Urban Hipster Getaway

Some couples like classic luxury, others crave urban escapes. If you and your partner enjoy metropolitan getaways or mid-century modern digs, it’s time you tried a weekend in Michigan’s Motor City at Trumbull & Porter.

Grab your bags and check in to one of the whirlpool rooms, where a splashy blue hot tub awaits in the corner. Before sinking into the jacuzzi bubbles, head over to Red Dunn Kitchen for quirky bites like mushroom fried meatballs or sweet-and-sour Brussels. If you’d have dinner in bed, keep it fresh with seasonally driven room service menus. Fancy an evening tipple? The hotel bar is open until 11 PM on weekends.
