A Mackinac Island Bed and Breakfast Inn

Cloghaun Bed and Breakfast is one of the oldest Victorian homes on Mackinac Island. Thomas and Bridget Donnelly left Ireland in 1848 to settle in the US; they completed Cloghaun (pronounced CLAH HANN) in 1884. Cloghaun has been preserved by their descendants to offer guests a tranquil, romantic interlude from the demands of everyday life. As one of Michigan’s oldest family-owned B&Bs, Cloghaun offers guests a truly unique Mackinac Island experience, close to parks, shops, restaurants, and easy walking distance to ferry docks. Eleven guest rooms are individually decorated with antiques from the late 1800s and evoke a feeling of casual elegance and Victorian charm. Modern WiFi is offered throughout the facility and air conditioning for all guest rooms enhance your stay. A full breakfast is also included in your stay. Experience your dream getaway at Cloghaun Bed and Breakfast.

Ranked as a Top 10 U.S. Island by TripAdvisor and USA Today, Mackinac boasts an authentic Victorian atmosphere with horses-drawn carriages instead of motorized vehicles; beautiful gardens; period architecture; a number of taverns, bars and restaurants; and, of course, Cloghaun Bed and Breakfast – just 2 blocks from the ferry dock.​ (This photo is taken from the Inn.)
