Cottage Inn B&B on Mackinac Island to open for the holidays and winter season

One of Mackinac’s top rated B&B will be open from Dec. 1 to Feb. 20

The Cottage Inn, Mackinac Island’s top-rated bed & breakfast, will open on December 1 for the holiday season and remain open until February 20, 2011 for the winter fun season. Guests staying at the Cottage Inn are treated to a modern bed & breakfast experience with a deluxe breakfast that includes a hot egg dish, fresh fruit, yogurt, fresh baked goods, and more, plus treats and tea at 3 pm each day.

For lunch and dinner there are three restaurants that remain open throughout the holiday and winter season. As the restaurants are closed on Christmas Day, The Cottage Inn provides a bountiful meal and Hor’s D’euvres. Accommodations during the holiday and winter season range between $95 and $275 depending on the date and type of room desired.

“People come here to experience the Island in the winter,” says Rich Lind, Innkeeper of the Cottage Inn. “The views are spectacular and there are plenty of things to do like cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and visiting a few shops that remain open. It’s really a magical place in the winter.”

Some of the activities available during the holiday and winter season include a Christmas Bazaar and tree lighting the first week in December, a fundraiser for the Island’s three churches, New Year’s Eve parties, winter festival and chili cook off in February. Travel to and from the Island is available via The Arnold Line until January 5th, and then through Great Lakes Air, which makes several flights daily.
