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.

Summer may be a little different this year but we still look forward to bright skies and longer days on Mackinac Island.

We honeymooned there 25 years ago on June 10. We were really looking forward to celebrating this year with my parents, our best friends, and our teenagers. They all wanted to experience the magic of the Grand with us.😢💐

Love the Grand Hotel, have traveled a lot, no hotel compares to this gracious, lovely hotel. Hello to the friendly staff from Tennessee and we plan to be there in May 2021.

If I could begin my day anywhere in the world it would be here. Thank you for all of the memories over the past. Praying that soon we will all have the opportunity to make new ones! Our Freedom is a cherished thing in this country, Thanks to our Veterans and active Military. Love and miss you GRAND HOTEL 💙❤️💙🇺🇲🇺🇸

So missed going this year! Love it there, many happy memories!🍀😇💚

had a fantastic holiday there in 1887,the opening day was fantastic.

Love this picture Going to the Grand Hotel is one of my favorite Summer Memories .Staying over night and Eating in the beautiful dinning room as a family you can't beat it The views where so wonderful. Touring the town ,eating Fudge and biking the island a fond memory.

Thank you for flying our country's colors. I love it. The flags were decked out last year when we went in September on our Anniversay trip. Wish we could come back this year!! Bob and Jean

Happy Memorial Day Weekend and God bless America! 🇺🇸 Missing being at The Grand Hotel.

Happy Memorial Day and Thank You to all who have and are serving our Great Nation 🙂

We honeymooned at the Grand Hotel 50 years ago. Unfortunately my husband passed some time ago, but I return to the Island savoring the happy memories and making new ones.

It was so beautiful! We enjoyed having drinks there in the afternoons. Would definitely go back

We’ll be missing you this year but already planning next year’s trip-an even longer stay. 😍

A beautiful place! Love the front porch and the geraniums

I have been in 26 countries and this is my favorite place in the world. So peaceful and breathtaking.

Aww, bittersweet memories of my visit in May of 2018🥰. What a magnificent view!! I pray to again visit someday🙏

Beautiful picture. Really loved it there.

Wish we were there right now, had to cancel our reservations for opening weekend this year 😢

Happy Memorial Day!!!

Loved it 30 Wedding Anniversary. Got rollerblades. ❤❤🤔

I have so missed you this past week Grand Hotel 🌷

Sadly we decided to not go anywhere. I would love to be on Mackinac Island but do not want the worry or risk of illness.

Thank you 😊 May God bless Mackinac island...

Waiting for confirmation of my June 28 reservation!

Haven't stayed here yet but its on my bucket list!!!

Grand Hotel

Although our opening date continues to be delayed, we’re making sure guest and staff safety is our top priority.
When Grand Hotel opens this summer, we look forward to welcoming visitors back to enjoy the same excellent level of hospitality our guests know and expect. When everything around us seems to constantly change, there is one thing that won’t change: Grand Hotel. Traditions are here to stay and we can't wait to enjoy summer with you. ❤️

We know it will be magnificent once you are able to open and share the beauty and grandeur with your guests. Wishing you a very successful season despite the late start

My 72 year old dad wants nothing more than to spend the night at the grand. I’m going to keep checking for deals in hopes something comes up we can afford! Such a wonderful place, we got to visit on a school field trip last year and had the time of our life!

Sure are missing being up there this weekend. Would have been our 23 year in a row. I don’t know what people do here in SW Ohio for Memorial Say Weekend.

I am anxiously awaiting my return to the Grand. I would have normally been up there a couple of times by now!

Supposed to go on may 4th for our anniversary/babymoon. Super bummed and sad we couldn’t go.

It is my one and only place that I'm waiting to go to. For years, I've been dreaming and planning and thinking of being there for our 50th wedding anniversary in June. Obviously that is not going to happen 💔. I'm not giving up hope to still be able to celebrate there. After all, anytime that I'm there with family and friends is a celebration. GRAND HOTEL makes everyday Special 💙.

Really missed going to the Titanic Weekend. We were one of the only couples to have attended the event since the beginning. Hope to be able to be there this year for our Anniversary in Aug.

I am encouraged by your promising post. The thing I like best about it is your statement promising that it will,not be changed. Please don’t change a thing about it.

Are you still planning on opening on June 21st or is the opening going to be delayed even further?

When does the grand hotel opening.

So missed my two night stay there for may 19-21. I love, love, love it there.,

Cant wait to return for my second visit with my grandmother and this time my boyfriend wants to come too!❤🖤 hes such a sweetheart!

Love the comfort. And beautiful old hotel.

I copied this from a person's post from downstate: "All of my friends are in bars and restaurants up north and posting pics and saying how it's awesome to be in groups of 40 or more and not be wearing masks. They also pointed out that Whitmer's stay at home has accomplished nothing ... We are still in the top 10 of most covid cases." - This is NOT safe. You will be in a world of hurt if the virus spreads on the island.

Oh how I love it there. And love the tradition!❤️

I want to live on The island and live at the Grand!! That’s not too much to ask!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️

Is the lunch buffet going to be open this summer??

Sad our conference was canceled this year. Won’t be making it there for the first time in 21 years.

I’d loved to be there!

we are looking forward to it!

Hoping to close the grand in the fall 😊

Keeping my fingers crossed for the end of July

Want to visit there before my expiration date.

I really hope you will open as planned

We will see you all soon!
