165th Anniversary Celebration

Mackinac Island’s Oldest Hotel


Join us in celebrating 165 years and learn more about the long and storied history of what is now Island House Hotel.

This historic landmark was originally commissioned to be a summer beach house by Charles O’Malley an Irish immigrant who came to Mackinac Island via Canada as part of the thriving fur trade. After O’Malley’s death the property changed hands several times making for a 120 years of fascinating history including the bequeathing to a bellhop and former leasers such as Grand Hotel and the Moral Re-Armament before being purchased by Harry Ryba just as the hotel was to be condemned by the state. Ryba restored the building to its former glory & in 1972. Victor Callewaert was the general manager at the time and today owns Mackinac Island’s oldest hotel.
