Mission Point Resort is a summer resort hotel located on Mackinac Island, an island in the Straits of Mackinac between the US state of Michigan's Upper and Lower peninsulas. It is located on the southeastern shoreline of the island, also called Mission Point.

History

The earliest buildings of Mission Point Resort originated from Moral Re-Armament concepts between Michigan governor G. Mennen Williams and Dr Frank Buchman in the 1950s. Since then, the resort buildings had transformed to Mackinac College in 1966, and then became a religious retreat and educational institution in 1970. In 1972 the buildings had transitioned into a vacation resort property and were eventually renamed Mission Point Resort in 1987.
