On The Island

Learning Your Way Around The Island

When you arrive to the island, we recommend stopping by the Visitors Center or visit the www.mackinacisland.org website. 

Your Luggage & Transportation

Horse Drawn Carriage & Shuttle Service 

With every ferry that pulls into the harbor there is a hotel shuttle that transports guests & luggage to the resort. This service is estimated at $7.00, per person, and cash is paid directly to the driver. For special requests please call Mackinac Island Carriage Tours Taxi at 906-847-3323. This service is not owned, or operated, by Mission Point Resort. The distance between the ferry dock & resort is less than 3⁄4 mile for those who wish to enjoy a leisurely stroll through downtown where shopping, dining & site seeing are flourishing. Luggage items will still be taken to the resort by the shuttle. Please note that the carriage changes horses between 12:30-2pm. There will be a delay in luggage delivery and shuttles will not be available.
