Beautiful Condo, 2 Bedrooms and a sleeper sofa, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6) Great views
We love having our "step back in time" getaway on historical Mackinac Island. We are a monthly rental only. This is actually due to city code and zoning. Our building is zoned for residential and not commercial. If your busy lives allow for a month long getaway you wont be disappointed with your stay at Heroes Retreat. We are a patriotic family with Michigan roots residing in Virginia. We only get to enjoy the place once a year so we thought we would share the beauty and memory making of Mackinac Island with you.
Jen purchased this Condo in 2008
What makes this Condo unique
We enjoy having a top floor view of Main St. We are across from Mission Church and have seen quite a few weddings go by. Mission Point's Bistro on the Green is a great spot that we love to go for tapas, a drink, live music all with a water view. In the summer there is even glow-in-the-dark putt-putt. The park next to us has adirondack chairs and we love to go there and relax. We are a ten minute walk to bustling Main St where there are countless fudge, souvenir, restaurants, bars and ice cream shops. We love being able to hop on our bikes to do all of those things. The paved loop around the island is 8 miles. Take in some time to enjoy the history of the island at Fort Mackinac.

Beautiful condo, awesome location
This is a beautiful condo in an awesome location. The beds and sofa sleeper are incredibly comfortable, and Jen is extremely gracious and responsive. One improvement I would suggest is to have additional comfortable seating in the living area. Thanks, Jen!
Great location, generally nice
We enjoyed our stay very much. A couple of things would have made the experience in the condo more enjoyable.
I would suggest removing some of the very large decorative items to make more room for comfortable seating for conversation and lounging. Although sleeping for six, really only one couch for two or three in a squeeze to sit and converse or even watch television. This is important for the required month long stay. Remove the large ( useless) table under the television and add a comfortable reading chair.
Bedside tables or at least reading lights.
Clear instructions about garbage, not just link to city site. Where do you put it, does it go to curb on a certain day?
Overall very nice.
This condo is the most well-appointed vrbo we have ever experienced.
Excellent location - close to downtown but just far enough away to avoid most of the crowds. Very clean, comfortable and spacious for a rental. Kitchen is both well and quality equipped. We have already made our reservation to return. Ed & Diane
A Most Spectacular Place to Stay!
I rented this wonderful condo for the month of June (2018), and had the most amazing time on Mackinac Island! It felt welcoming the minute I walked in, had all the comforts of home, and was just perfect for me and my guests.
Charming and clean, with a great view from the balcony, it was exciting to watch the sleepy island awaken with activity each day! And located near Mission Point with only a short walk into town, it offered the perfect balance for quiet reflection (as the horses clip-clopped by), or immersion into the small town feel of historic Mackinac. It was a very healing experience for me!
Jen was the most pleasant and considerate owner, checking in every once in a while to see if there was anything that she could do to make my stay more enjoyable! She also informed me about the activities and happenings on the island while I was there.
Thank you, Jen, for sharing your beautiful island getaway...I definitely plan to return to this lovely place!
Slice of Heaven
We stayed at Heroes Retreat in May 2018. We found Jen’s condo to be perfect for the two of us and our friends as they came to visit during the month we were there. The condo has everything you would need for a month long stay, plus it is so peacefully located on the island. Close enough but not to close. Thank you Jen for your quick response to our questions and for the crockpot 😃�😃� I’m sure other guests will also enjoy that. Mackinac Island is a dream come true.
Great condo and location. I really can't think of anything that would make this a better rental. Jenn was extremely helpful and responded quickly to our questions. We would definitely recommend this to anyone.

There are no cars or motorcycles allowed on Mackinac Island and that is what makes it so special. You get around by bike, horse drawn carriage or by foot. There is a miniature golf course just a short stroll next door at Mission Point. There are so many things to see and do.
