In 2013, Bicycle Street Inn & Suites became the first new hotel on Mackinac Island in more than a decade.

By all measures, the 43 room hotel has been a great success, fueled in part by a strong economy, excellent word of mouth, and a constant upgrading to elevate their guests’ experience.

Led by partners Mr. Ira Green and Ms. Melanie Libby, in 2015 they opened their second hotel across the street, the 13 room Waterfront Collection North. In 2017, they revealed a major renovation of Bicycle Street Inn with a plush, new lobby and mezzanine level with seven guest rooms and two retail establishments: Winchester’s Restaurant with delicious craft food & cocktails, and Sander’s Candy Shop with tasty treats including Mackinac’s world famous fudge. The hotel also boasts a fitness room, business workstation, and guest laundry.

One might think Mr. Green and Ms. Libby would be content to sit still and reap the rewards of their labor. Hardly. The dynamic developer duo just opened their third property in May 2019, Waterfront Collection South, located at Shepler’s ferry dock near the other two hotels.

Waterfront Collection South is a unique 28 room, three story hotel that combines the renovation of an existing historic building with brand new construction built on top of Shepler’s newly expanded transportation center. Decorated with top end furnishings in a contemporary style, Waterfront Collection South will check-in guests at their own lobby and provide elevator service to plush rooms with a long list of included amenities, such as premium pillows top beds, 49” HDTVs, glass showers and granite vanities, and of course, walk-out balconies offering spectacular Main Street and waterfront views.

The three hotels are all just a stone’s throw from each other and have a total of 84 guest rooms in the heart of downtown Mackinac Island. Be a part of a premier vacation experience. Whether you visit for an overnight or an extended stay, Bicycle Street Inn & Suites and Waterfront Collection is confident you'll have all the amenities you need, and immediate access to the island’s best shops, restaurants and attractions.
