Outstanding Wedding Venue, book here now!
The Inn at Stoneclifffe and their staff were absolutely outstanding. We had to switch our venue last minute (30 days out from wedding date) due to COVID restrictions in our state, and every member of their team made sure everything was handled quickly and done amazingly. Becky was extraordinary in making sure our day was everything we could have dreamed of and more. She was on top of every detail, was extremely quick to answer questions, and always followed through on her promises. She and her whole staff went above and beyond for us. They took what could have been a very stressful re-plan, and handled it with ease. The day of went perfectly. Becky and her staff had thought of everything we could have needed and more. The staff during the reception were incredible and the food was outstanding. We received so many compliments from our guests on the menu, and all credit goes to Stonecliffe. Due to the last minute switch, we didn’t even get to do a food tasting, but we were BLOWN AWAY by the quality, quantity, and flavors of our meal at our wedding reception. They worked to exceed every expectation and made our wedding day perfect. We had so much fun! You should absolutely book your Mackinac Island wedding here! Our vendors: (DJ Brevin with A-List Event Group, Photographer Sara Wright with ItsWonderfulPhotography, and Gabi Bowditch with Mackinac Films). Brevin, Sara, and Gabi worked seamlessly at Stonecliffe and captured every moment perfectly. They all knew the venue and worked efficiently with the staff! I couldn’t recommend them all more. Overall, the day was everything we could have imagined and more.

The most epic celebration!
We could not have asked for a better experience than what we had at The Inn at Stonecliffe! We wanted a smaller, intimate event and it turned out to be everything we had dreamed of and more. Becky was VERY responsive to all of my e-mails and questions. The food was amazing, and the inn itself is stunning and makes for BEAUTIFUL photos. The power went out our first day there and remained off for almost 24 hours, but the staff swooped in to make sure our rehearsal dinner was perfect and our guests were happy! If you'e re thinking of having your wedding at Stonecliffe, DO IT! You will not be disappointed! We will never stop raving, or get tired of listening to our guests tell us how much fun they had!Sent on 06/17/2021

I have been doing weddings at The Inn at Stonecliffe for 8 years and been in the wedding/hotel industry for 10. I love The Inn at Stonecliffe because it is such a unique and special place on Mackinac Island. Being removed from the craziness of downtown is such a relief during the busy summer months. The view is also unbeatable!
My family and I live on the island May - October and I have loved watching my children grow up here.
I hope I can work with you to plan the wedding of your dreams!
