Mackinac Island’s Lovely Victorian Homes

Victorian Home MemeLast month I escorted you on a brief cyber tour of Mackinac Island: A Victorian Oasis. However, my tour of this old-fashioned paradise was a smidgen incomplete due to the fact that it was rather impossible to condense the whole of Mackinac’s beauty into one reasonably sized blog post.

Hence, this secondary post showcasing Mackinac Island’s Lovely Victorian Homes!

Fetch your hat and parasol, dears! We’re off for a quaint stroll.

One can almost imagine a Victorian Snow White residing in this cottage with a collection of eccentric dwarfs.

This porch is perfectly suited for rocking chairs and early morning conversation!

Victorian Yellow

I adore this home’s name—Windermere. *le sigh*

I’m of the opinion that every home, great or small, ought to be named.

Victorian Sky BlueAwww…I do believe this one is my favorite! The sky blue hue, the lush flowering garden, and a white picket fence, too. Let us end our tour here and enjoy a spot of tea whilst reclined on those periwinkle chairs.
