Two years ago I was passing through Mackinaw City, Michigan, and
spotted this lovely, bright yellow, Bed and Breakfast and knew I had to stop
and see what this was all about. I do that quite often as I travel, if I see
an interesting hotel, I will go in and often ask to see a room, for future
reference. In this case, it would be The Brigadoon Bed and Breakfast
of Mackinaw City. I walked in and immediately fell in love with this lovely
elegant place. The lady behind the desk offered to show us a couple of
rooms, one being a private suite not seen on their website.
After touring through the lovely eight room Bed and Breakfast, I knew I would have to come back and stay here one day soon. Well two years
later, I just returned from a two night stay and am totally smitten with
this wonderful place.
Now, if you were driving by this building, wouldn’t you want to see what
was inside, or maybe it’s just me. I love yellow painted buildings, so
this intrigued my curiosity.
The upper bowed turret would be our dining room in our suite, which looks
out over part of the city.
As you walk through the door, the first thing you see is the reception
desk, attended at all times with always a smile to greet you. The staff
was always so accommodating and pleasant.
Turning right from the reception desk, would be this lovely elegant room
with a seating area and fireplace for common use
A dining table and chairs to accommodate an overflow from the dining
An elegant but small dining room, where a wonderful hot breakfast is
served, included with your room. At 3:00 everyday, homemade cookies,
tea, coffee, and lemonade is served here.
Every night at 8:00, a homemade dessert is served. Tonight would be a
strawberry shortcake with ice cream and whipped cream, topped
with a cherry. One night it was homemade lemon cheesecake topped
with whip cream. Amazing.
Another view from the common sitting area. Want to see our suite,

Our dining room set in the bowed turret overlooking part of the city.
The fully stocked kitchen, although we did not cook.
This suite was lovely. The bathroom had a great tub area and shower.
Also attached was another bedroom you could use along with the suite
we stayed in. We did not reserve this extra room,but I do know from seeing
it two years ago, it is also lovely. A large family would certainly appreciate
the extra space.
The Brigadoon offers “old world charms” that everyone would enjoy.
It is spotlessly clean, the staff is great, the three featured meals and
snacks offered are prepared by two ladies from Jamaica who are experts
at their cooking and serving, and adds to the charms of this delightful
place. Breakfast, homemade cookies at 3:00, and dessert at 8:00 is just
an added bonus.
The prices start at $95.00 to $265.00 for the rooms with breakfast and
desserts included. If you are ever in Mackinaw City treat yourself to
a stay at the Brigadoon Bed and Breakfast, I know it will be a yearly
tradition for me.
