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.

Bob Tagatz is the authority when it comes to the history of historic wooden hotels and of Grand Hotel in particular.

Can't get better than Bob Tagatz. He's a font of information. Just love him.... And Grand Hotel of course πŸ˜‰.

I love that porch. I remember my husband and I sitting there on a rocker a few years ago. Loved, loved it.

I love sitting on the porch all afternoon πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

Hurry, put the chairs out.....

So beautiful. I miss the rose walk and the wedding garden. Lilac trees and peonies. Loved working there. So many years ago now.

The beauty of the island really is astonishing. Each season has it's own claim to fame... I've tried to pick a favorite season to comment on something more beautiful than another... I found it just isn't possible. Grand Hotel sitting on top of the bluff is the icing on the cake, if you will. Each time I walk up the road to the hotel I'm as excited as the first time I stayed. Looking up at this magnificent building never gets old. It's amazing that it can be more beautiful each year. "She" sure doesn't look her age of 130 years. I'm so thankful and grateful to be able to visit often, as I live here in Michigan.... and I can't imagine living anywhere else. Have a Great Season Grand Hotel and Mackinac Island.

Pardon me, but this gorgeous island has Pure Michigan Beauty all year round <3

One of my favorite places to go and sit on the porch. Of course the Breakers front porch is beautiful also

That is the view I hold my breath for every year!!

Be there June 8th! So excited!! First time

Can't wait til July!

My pool πŸ™‚

See you in June... Maybe sooner!!!



Can't wait to be there

I was there during Lilac festival.

We've stayed in this room!! AWESOME!!!!!!

I love this place!


Ahhh ...

Just beautiful !!!!

You spelled "its" wrong.

Do you have accommodations for mobility challenged people?

Linda and Ron - this looks like your room (from the windows) that was redone.
