Welcome to the Mackinac Island Yacht Club web site.
The Yacht Club, founded in 1937, currently includes 310 members, many of whom are residents of Mackinac Island, Michigan. The clubhouse sits directly across from the Michigan State Waterways marina in the Mackinac Island harbor.

The clubhouse is
open from about mid-May until mid-October. It offers members
use of comfortable living quarters, a scenic porch and serves
members and their guests. The house contains eight second and
third floor rooms that are available
for overnight accommodations for members and their guests.
Please feel free to contact us, if you would like more information about the club.
Our new beautiful landscaping with commemorative pavers! Completed in Spring 2013.
It hasn't been below 0 for a few days now so I think spring is heading our way. There are forecasts of 30 degrees for next week. We will probably lose our snow before we lose our ice bridge!
It's time to start thinking of your summer visit to Mackinac. (Don't forget though that rates are reduced before June 15 and after Labor Day. We have quite a few rooms open in May and early June.) You can check availability by going to the Members Only section of the site. (Call 906-847-3363 or email if you need the login or wish to reserve your room.)
Looking forward to a great summer!
