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.

Always so welcoming and you know you're going to have a wonderfully delicious meal!!!

Tickets please! Lol 😂

I have never seen this unless it was in the movie. Beautiful <3

From the other end.💗

As many times as I have been to the Grand Hotel, I do not remember this Hall. First floor??

Many fond memories walking into that dining room. Cedric greeting us! Sharing visits w family. Greeting Kenny Loggins and Jim Nabors for Mr Musser. ❤️

The best treasure of living in Michigan!!!

Every meal is delicious! Love hearing “welcome home” when we return each year. 💕

There is absolutely nothing I don't like about the Grand, but mostly I love that porch.

Actually... Having dinner at the very end where the round room is was the highlight of our dining experience

Glorious hotel

Always exciting, every single time we entered for breakfast or dinner. 🙂

Totally awesome!

So many times: greeted by the genteel Kenneth Salmon, served by the ever-wonderful Jafferay Harris

One of my very favorite places!!!

Reservations for two please.

My favorite place to dine!

Walking down that promenade dressed in your finest is one of the best moments of each evening.

An excellent place to eat.....

The best 3 meals a day on the planet, with the kindest waitstaff!👍👍

Manger (eat. dining) see above

So elegant and delicious food.❤

Loved every meal there! Especially the ones with a view! ❤

The dining experience always makes you feel special.

“Yes we would like a table near the window” Actually every seat is wonderful!

Congratulations! I'm glad the new owners are keeping things the same as they have been, including some staff. They deserve the credit for this honor.

Well-deserved—How GRANDTASTIC!!!

LOVE × FOUR 💕💕 Congratulations to the most incredible staff anywhere on Earth!!! GRAND HOTEL is definitely the best place I've ever been to... But without the staff and The Musser family it wouldn't have the Heart and Soul that makes it "Home" to so many of us! 👏🌟🥂🏅🏆❤️

Can't wait to go there

Cobgratulations and well deserved, greatest hotel in America!!!

Visiting here and spending a couple of nights is the #1 item on my bucket list and has been since the 70's. I just have to find the money to make it happen. Congratulations on this achievement!

LOVE the Presidential suites, especially the First Ladies 💗😍💖

I would love to stay at the Grand Hotel, but I don’t care for this room.

That's lovely. <3 What room number is this, #GrandHotel? Is it a lake-view room?

Loved staying in the Lincoln Suite. The chandelier that hangs in the bathroom. Perfect lake views.

In my day we had the Governors Suite and the Presidential suite, one on the first floor and the other directly above it.

The Great Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island.🗽🇱🇷

Stayed in this room the night after my wedding. And again 10 years later. Fond memories!

Love this room.. spent our 25th Anniversary there!

I love this room! It's a step back in time, and it looks out onto the front porch. Ahh, wish I were there right now!

Have spent a number of nights in the Lincoln Suite....... Love it

I stayed in this suite! So wonderful!

Eisenhower would do nearly as well...and just as charming!

My brother and sis-in-law stayed here years ago. We were so jealous! 🤩

I've had the Nancy Regan suite, oh boy!

Beautiful <3 Would love to stay there.

This is where we spent our honeymoon

Beautiful ❤

Can I put a request in for this room during the Knights of Columbus Conference in May?!

So great!


Wish I could pull that one financially!

We had the Ester Williams Suite for our 50th. Second floor overlooking the pool. It was gorgeous.

We love all the rooms we've been in. The Grand Hotel has the most beautiful rooms. ❤

Sandra R Beall-Daniels perhaps we could request this room on our next visit

Stayed in the Lincoln Suite 32 years ago on our honeymoon!
