Mackinac Island's Mission Point Resort Changes Ownership, Plans Multi-Million Dollar Upgrade


Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island has been acquired by D&S North, based on Mackinac and in San Antonio, and will be on the receiving end of a multi-million dollar renovation over the next few years, officials announced today.

“A new chapter is beginning for Mission Point Resort,” says Bradley McCallum, vice president and managing director, who will continue his leadership at the property. “This property is a gem in a one-of-a-kind destination and we are greatly looking forward to working with the Ware family to further its success.”

Set on 18 acres of lakefront property, the first batch of enhancements and improvements to the 239-room hotel are expected to be completed by May 1. However, McCallum notes that the improvements will be completed on a rolling basis and this is just the beginning to changes that will include a new, larger spa facility and pool complex as well as improvements to guest rooms.

“Our family loves Mackinac and the Great Lakes region,” said Dennert O. Ware, who co-owns D&S North with his wife, Suzanne. “We look forward to helping this very special property realize its full potential while remaining a time-honored tradition for families to visit year after year.”

In addition to Mission Point Resort, the Ware family also owns Silver Birches on Mackinac Island, a historic, Adirondack style lodge currently under restoration by their daughter, Liz Ware of Chicago.
