A trip to Mackinac Island is almost like time-traveling back to a bygone era. Bygone eras, however, lacked certain modern comforts, such as indoor plumbing. Yes, it's fun to return to a simpler era, but with all of today's modern amenities...except cars, sorry, no cars are allowed on MACKINAC ISLAND. The LAKEWOOD is MACKINAC ISLAND's newest and most modern lodging option on MACKINAC ISLAND.


Completely renovated, remodeled, replumbed, rewired, re-everything in 2021, the LAKEWOOD features upscale hotel luxury, with bed and breakfast intimacy. Our internet, wi-fi system is the fastest available on MACKINAC ISLAND.  With download and upload speeds of 100 Mbps, your visit to the LAKEWOOD MACKINAC ISLAND will keep you connected, while allowing you to relax and decompress. And yes, we understand that 100 Mbps may not be the 1000 Mbps you get at home, but this is MACKINAC ISLAND after all, where most of us think fiber optics is a dietary supplement for eyesight.
