The Riverside Inn

We've seen our fair share of nasty this season, but we've also felt a lot of love and support as well. See a note we received below for an example of how kind and appreciative people can be too.

But first, this is Chef Christine Boerma. She became our Executive Chef this spring amid the pandemic, returning home early from her annual winter migration to instruct at the @italianculinaryinstitute in Calabria so she could quarantine before we opened for the season.

We've gotten rave reviews our on food since she took the reins and we want to make sure when you say "please give my compliments to the Chef" you know who she is. Chef Boerma leads with grace and determination and we're so fortunate to have her creativity and experience steering our team.

And now for the note...

"Hi!

We had an amazing experience at your restaurant and I have to tell you how it was the highlight of our weekend away on vacation!

First, please let your chef know that he/she is incredible!! Food was unique, cooked to perfection and unforgettable! Everyone at our table was in love with the food!

Secondly, we loved the service from our waitress Aurelia!! She was very knowledgeable and personable! We loved her name too! She is a beautiful person!

Third, your wine list is fantastic!!!

The patio in the back was so nice to look out at the water. But I just loved the inside of the restaurant too!

Great job to you running such a great staff and amazing food and wine! Restaurant business is tough but know you are doing an amazing job!

Cheers to all of you! You made my summer in one meal and one evening!

God bless!

Elizabeth B."

The Adirondack chairs are out on the great lawn at Mission Point Resort.  A wonderful spot for watching the freighters pass by on Lake Huron. #missionpoint #mackinac #mackinacisland

Some clouds, some fog, some rain and the Mackinac Bridge in the distance. The boat ride to Mackinac Island is always an adventure. (Some whoop-tee-doos too) #mackinacbridge #mackinac #mackinacisland
