PEDIS-n-PASSPORTS | The Magic of Mackinac Island & Mission Point Resort


We recently headed to Mackinac Island for our very first time. From the moment we stepped off the ferry, we felt like we had landed in a magical fairy tale land in the Caribbean.

Choosing the right hotel for our stay was just as significant as the trip itself, and honestly it was the resort, which in fact, allowed our family to reconnect and experience the perfect balance of tranquility and quality family-fun-time we greatly needed. In fact, after now touring Mackinac Island and seeing many of its hotels, Mission Point Resort will forever be our only choice.

Besides the expansive 18-acre setting and sheer elegance of the resort, the entire staff was so welcoming and helpful, making our stay flawless. Mission Point is a seasonal resort open from the end of April through the end of October. The feel of the resort is charming, elegant, cozy and relaxed. You will see families sitting by the fireplaces playing Backgammon and cards, reading books from the library, or sunning on the Great Lawn with its breathtaking views.

The Resort has 241 rooms, three full restaurants, a beautiful wine bar, an adorable coffee shop and cafe, a health club and gorgeous full service spa, a turn of the century movie theater, an arcade, bike rentals, an outdoor pool and hot tub, a kids club, an 18-hole-executive putting course, tennis courts, a classy boutique, and a massive 38,000 square feet of event space. Mission Point Resort holds close to a hundred weddings per year and we can clearly see why. This is a dream wedding location. In fact, Brooke said when she marries, this will be the venue. It is also the ideal spot for corporate gatherings and conferences--talk about an unforgettable event for guests/clients. There is just too much to list about this resort, but we hope you see that there is truly something special for everyone here.

During our stay, we biked the entire island, experienced the most beautiful sunrise kayak tour, played golf and tennis, hiked, visited Fort Mackinac and Arch Rock, ate more fudge and ice cream than we have in an entire year, and enjoyed the beautiful lilacs bursting in full bloom all over the island.To get full details of Mackinac Island and Mission Point Resort, head to Without question, Mackinac Island is our favorite US destination and Trip Advisor just named it the #1 Summertime destination in the US. Why we waited so long to visit, I’ll never understand.
