“What better way to spend your time on beautiful Mackinac Island?”
What better way to spend your time on beautiful Mackinac Island than in one of the older family homes? Our house was built in the mid-1850s during the period when the Mackinac Island fishing industry was expanding. The industry was developed by the many Irish families who came as a result of the potato famine. The home was left vacant for a period of about forty years, ending when a new foundation, heating system and bathrooms were installed in 1957. We include with our rooms a continental breakfast served in our family dining room. Hot mugs of coffee or tea, freshly baked pastries, and ice cold juice provide a delicious beginning to your day. The conversation offers a chance to learn more about the island and its history. The house is off Huron Street, up Bogan Lane, just east of the Island House Hotel, providing a relaxed atmosphere in which to rest between forays to historic sights, quiet walks in the woods, or hectic conventions at the Grand Hotel. Bogan Lane Inn is also haunted! Staff and sometimes guests as well have seen and heard the ghost of a little girl with long hair here. She has been seen playing the piano and has been known to tell folks that she wants to go home. Weird!
I stayed there this July, and was visited by what I believe to be the spirit of that little girl. My shoes were being moved around when I wasn't looking, I heard a very clear and loud "um" in my ear one night when it was dark and quiet, and I even got video of some weird, bright orb shooting across the room right after the voice...it was dead silent when I took the video, but when it's played back, there's a banging noise throughout the whole thing.
