Mackinac Island Vacation Lodging and Recreation

Grand Hotel

Grand Hotel is situated on the southwestern bluff of Mackinac Island overlooking the Straits of Mackinac and – in the distance – the Mackinac Bridge. From the front porch – the world’s largest at 660 feet – guests can look down at the well-kept gardens and relax and enjoy the ambiance of “somewhere in time”. It is no wonder that hollywood has chosen to come here more than once. Indeed, like a classic movie, Grand Hotel is larger that life. The Victorian elegance has been kept intact. Each room at Grand Hotel has been tastefully decorated by New York designer Carleton Varney with its own special character and style. Breakfast and dinner daily are included in the Grand Hotel room rate, and are served in the Main Dining Room. Visit their website and familiarize yourself with the elegance and the history of this magnificent hotel. A stay on Mackinac Island at Grand Hotel is a unique experience and most guests depart to the mainland with memories that last a lifetime.

I love this so much! She is truly GRAND dressed in her winter white!!! So Beautiful 😍❄️💙

Since y’all don’t celebrate Christmas there - you should do a Christmas in July event where you decorate the hotel with Christmas decorations in the month of July to celebrate the holidays and then bring in some “snow”. Just an idea. A fun idea.

What’s it like to live there during the winter months?

Absolutely love Mackinaw Island so great full to live inMichigan👍

Those beautiful Wild Flowers are covered with beautiful snow...

Looks very pretty..postcard material😀! But I say no thanks to snow.

Serene and peaceful. Just Lovely..💕🙂❄️

Grand Hotel is the finest and most beautiful hotel in the world. We absolutely love staying there!

Looks like a good sledding hill.

I wish you would have veterans or military pricing there! I have always wanted to stay at the Grand Hotel. Love love Somewhere in time. Grew up in Lower Michigan..graduated in 1974...Next time I visit Mi, I must do it! Time is marching on! Lovely Michigan!

Gorgeous Grand at any time of the year, but this just speaks volumes as far as pristine, peacefulness and serene❄️❄️❄️. Just wish I didn’t live so far away😢!!!

The color of that porch ceiling pops out 🙂 Love It!

Beautiful and majestic in every season!

Can I just live there all year long?? I would gladly be the hotel caretaker in the winter if I can live in one of the suites over the winter!

It's still magnificent!

I miss the island😟

Jane Horn-just beautiful!

We are enjoying your posts during the off season. Brilliant marketing to keep us thinking about the resort all year and planning our next visits. Gorgeous photos don't hurt either.

It's beautiful there all the time love it there
