    Beautiful Venue

    My husband and I chose the Inn at Stonecliffe for our elopement wedding. All of the staff was on point, professional, and helpful. My only suggestion would be to avoid the Star Line Ferry (the ferry used by Stonecliffe if you purchase the ferry tickets with your room) and choose Shepler's instead. Star Line dropped my husband's suit in the water and then stepped on it, leaving it unusable for our wedding. The staff at Stonecliffe was as helpful as they could be, given the circumstances. I would suggest that Stonecliffe might reconsider their contract with Star Line, as Star Line has not done a thing to help make that situation right, despite several communication attempts on our end.

    The Inn at Stonecliffe's reply:

    Thank you for your review Amy! We were so glad we could host your intimate ceremony and wish you all the best for your new life together! We also appreciate the feedback on Star Line as well.

    Beautiful Venue

    The Inn at Stonecliffe sits up high on the West Bluff of Mackinac Island with breathtaking views of the Mackinac Bridge while overlooking the Straits of Mackinac, making this the perfect location for a wedding. The gorgeous surroundings and sunset views lend the opportunity for an abundance of beautiful photographs. We had the pleasure of working with Becky Miller who was essential to creating such a positive and memorable experience for us, even helping us navigating the postponement of our September 2019 wedding. Becky is excellent at communicating, extremely responsive, attentive, professional, and so easy to work with. The food was delicious, and the service was impeccable! Thank you to Becky and her team for all they did to making our wedding so special in every way imaginable.

    The Inn at Stonecliffe's reply:

    Thank you Elise! We loved hosting your wedding and are so glad you were happy with everything! Best wishes to you and Edward!!!!
