Grand Hotel History Weekend – September 21 – 23, 2018
You’re invited to Grand Hotel’s 10th Annual History Weekend with a unique look into the story behind the wood structure built in 1887 as Grand Hotel celebrates its 131st Anniversary in 2018. Bob Tagatz, Grand Hotel’s Resident Historian and Concierge will take you on a fascinating journey through the history of Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel. Mr. Tagatz, named Historic Hotels of America 2014 Historian of the Year, is a natural story teller who will intrigue you with information about the hotel’s 130 year history and how the island and the hotel came to be what they are today. All guests will also enjoy a tour of the Grand Stables with Bob Tagatz and Stable Manager Ben Mosley, evening receptions and a full breakfast and dinner daily as well as the legendary Grand Luncheon Buffet on Saturday afternoon.
Fall is a great time of year to experience the solitude of Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel. We hope to see you for this special event.
