Wow, thank you Kevin and Shawn for your awesome service!!! We were welcomed with smiles and treated with kindness.

We were seeking a good place for our Son and his family to rent a carriage and found Jack's Livery. They were somewhat busy, but took the time to discuss options and explain how we should proceed. They were very kind, and in addition gave my Son a military discount as he is active duty Army. Our Daughter-in-Law knows horses... More

My family rented a self drive carriage, and it was worth the cost. We saw many parts of the island we probably wouldn't have without this. The only negative was that the horse was a bit slow at times, and we weren't able to get her to speed up. But overall, a good experience that I'd recommend.

We rented a four person carriage with friends, and I will say first of all that we did have a nice time and enjoyed doing it. It was nice to take a ride on the island and not be squished into the carriage tour rides with all of the crowds. Our horse was really, really slow, which may have been... More

My husband and I went o Mackinac Island this week and noticed right away how many horses are on the Island and how little land there is. I never once during the day saw a horse getting a drink of water. Just constantly working, puling heavy carriages with a lot of people in them in the hot sun. As we... More

We rented a self drive carriage for an hour trip around the interior. They were spot on with their recommendation for the hour loop and it took us by some of the more classic sites (though of course you can't stop and see them properly). Never having driven a carriage before made it a bucket list kind of activity and... More

Caleb, a long time Mackinac resident, narrated much of the tour, and gave really good insight into the inner workings of this wonderful tourist island. Sam drove the horses, narrated some (he is from Linden, Michigan), and drove us to the interior of the island, through streets lined with gorgeous millionaires' summer homes as well as homes of residents who...

While on our annual girls' weekend out, three friends and I spent a day on Mackinac Island. While we've all been there on numerous occasions, together and sometimes not (we've known each other for 50 years after all), for the first time we decided to take a private carriage ride around the Island and selected Jack's Livery Stable for the...

My husband and I enjoyed our self-driving carriage ride of Mackinac. While you can't go on all the trails or roads, there were a few different options, and we took the lakeshore road to British Landing and then down the centre past the golf course, 1812 battlefield and airport. We were lucky to have Shorty as our horse; he is... More

Our nieces had never been to Mackinaw, so we thought this would be a fun excursion. It was. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. We did the British Landing drive your own buggy tour which, with no stops, took 1.75 hours. It was very leisurely, but we didn't mind. Given the heat on the day we went, we... More
