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.

1969 through 1972 we lived in th UP at the Air Force Base during the Vietnam War. We used to go to the Grand Hotel for lunch when we had visitors. We were very young. 1980s we took our three sons to the UP and we went to the Grand Hotel.2009 our son proposed to his wife on the porch at the Grand Hotel. 2020 they went back to the Grand Hotel to celebrate their 10th anniversary.First time I went I was a little girl and there was no bridge connecting the lower peninsula to the UP. We took a ferry. I am 82. It has been a part of our lives. We lived in Ohio.We now live in Florida.

Celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary at Grand Hotel….❤️

Seeing the Grand Hotel in person was impressive! Staying there was awesome! Sitting down at this place setting for dinner was wonderful!

In the fall of 1980, we stayed on the island for our honeymoon, and had a dinner one night at the Grand, then we were hooked. Spring of 1981, we stayed two unforgettable nights. During the Lilac Festival in 2017 we booked the Anniversary package and had my heart almost pound out of my chest, when we opened our door to room 314. I cried when we walked in and looked out at the view, of eight windows overlooking the bridge. We felt so special, from the tea in the afternoon, to the private carriage tour. One of my favorite times, was sitting on the porch, relaxing and crocheting for hours, one afternoon. Thanks to the wonderful staff for keeping my iced tea full and providing snacks while allowing me to people watch, listening to the horses as they went by, all while enjoying the scenery of the round lighthouse, and the bridge. I think maybe it’s time to plan for another trip to the Grand next spring.

The Grand helped me recover from the loss of my late wife. It was our favorite place to vacation. After the funeral, I immediately went for a few days so the recovery would start. It helped so much!

Took the North American up from Chicago, summer ‘53 and stayed a week at the Grand Hotel. Wonderful experience! My grandparents had honeymooned there when it was brand new -

I love it only because of the movie, Some Where in Time.

Was there a few weeks ago for lunch. Loved finding the “Secret Garden.”

Just wrapped up a lovely weekend at The Grand. Our new favorite thing is sharing The Grand experience with our friends. This was the view from our room. #americassummerplace#CYM2022

I loved the dinners and the beautiful plates! Everything about our experience was very memorable!

Being there with my husband,daughter, and her little girl! Sitting on the front porch. Great meals and service!

Rocking on the beautiful 660 foot porch!

Stayed at the Grand for our 54th Anniversary. Private carriage ride around island cool beverage on porch. Stayed there many times but this was special.

We’ve been coming to the Grand for 41 years!

This one right here. Playing mini putt putt with my hubby. ❤️. P.S. I won!😊

One of my VERY Favorite places to go! LOVE LOVE LOVE the Grand on Mackinaw Island!👍❤️🥰👍

You also stare at our house on the other side of the straits!

Fell in love with the hotel when I saw somewhere in time. Found the room Christopher Reeve stayed in in the movie. Stayed there once and went back again on a bus trip and had lunch there and shopped there. We stayed off island as I was on a bus trip.

My Wedding in the Tea Garden . Loved staying there. The food was also fabulous .

Getting one of the balcony rooms and saying “quick….mess it up before they realize they made a mistake!” 🥰😂

I went there in 2009.it was beautiful..glad I went.

Walking up the road and seeing the Grand up close. Also, seeing the Grand come into focus while still on the ferry

My grandparents worked there

Staying at the hotel. Our window faced the lighthouse!

Had a great time, loved it all.

Such a lovely gentleman! We were so impressed with the skills and courtesy of the entire dining room staff!

What an amazing man! Congratulations on his tremendous years of service...Well-deserved recognition!

He served us 2 weeks ago. He runs a tight ship and does a very nice job!

God bless Glendon. Thank you for all the work he has done through the years.

We had the pleasure of being seated in his section over Labor Day. A lovely person, an asset for sure!

I believe he was our waiter for our 40th anniversary dinner on August 7th this year. Great Service!

He is a wonderful, kind man and always smiling! We were lucky to see him twice this year 😊

Glendon is the best. Please tell him his biggest fan from Petoskey says hello.

Can’t wait to see Glen this weekend!

We spoke with him a few years back when we visited. It was after we had gone to Jamaica so we talked about his native country. Nice man.

Kindest soul on Earth. We Love brother B.❤️

Glen is a great guy and always smiling and so kind.

We missed seeing Glendon this year. He is always smiling! Thank you for this wonderful picture. 💕

I worked in the restaurant there in 1991 which would have been Glendon’s first season. We are hoping to visit next year.

He is a wonderful man and a fabulous server. He makes the dining experience at the Grand extra special. He’s wonderful.
