Visit our store located inside the Lilac Tree Inn entrance on Main Street on Mackinac Island. We are celebrating over 40 years since the opening of the Island Bookstore!

Our current staff collectively has more than 50 years of experience as booksellers, and far more as zealous readers. Each season you'll find on our shelves dozens of books, spanning a variety of genres, bearing our "Staff Pick" sticker. Previously located above historic Doud's Grocery, the Island Bookstore has been at its current location under the Lilac Tree Hotel for over 30 years, but has been serving the Straits Area for over a decade more.
