We just returned from a wonderful stay at the famous Grand Hotel. The accommodations were beautiful and quite comfortable. The service everywhere was first rate. The food was also very good.
There were a lot of people around, but certainly understandable. I would recommend the package where you are free for lunch as there are many great places in town for lunch. The bike ride around the island is beautiful and easy. A definite stay for travelers who want to see all the famous resorts.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers. Want to spend time like it was a years Foxglove - Various - Pulse 2 - The 2nd Psychedelic Chapter but with modern amenities?
The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island is the place for you. It is gloriously attractive, the help is wonderful and international and the food was spectacular. It is bar none the best hotel at which I have ever stayed. Add to that, the island, which is open to tourists only during the summer with the exception of hardy souls who spend the winter there and no motorized vehicles with the exception of fire trucks and ambulances, you have something that is special about Mackinac Island.
Stores are restocked by the use of horses and wagons, there are tours of the island via turn of the century conveyance and bike rentals are available throughout the Island. And of course there is the fudge. There is something special about Mackinac Island fudge!
You reach the island by ferries which run on a routine basis from Mackinaw City or St. Ignace on the upper peninsula of Michigan. There are three ferry companies that service the Island. We spent two days at the Grand in late October during the "Somewhere In Time" weekend Hold On To Dream (Club Mix) - Various - Tunnel Trance Force Global 6 celebrates the movie that was shot at the Grand and stars the late Chris Reeves in one of his earlier films.
This event has been going on for 20 years and is attended annually by lovers of the film who dress in early 20th century garb. Men have top hats, spats and canes while women dress in flowing gowns, gloves and large hats.

For a discounted price, we enjoyed this wonderful experience. Before we boarded our ferry to the Island Arnold Line we got to watch while they led off 20 or so of the draft horses that were headed to their winter barns in Please Dont Go - Mehrzad Marashi - New Life UP. I swear each of them swung their magnificent heads around to look at me as I snapped their photos.
Check in was a breeze, and our room was cozy, quiet, and was very nicely decorated. My husband and I enjoyed a talk in the afternoon by the hotel historian, who regaled us with many hilarious tales of the hotel. Our buffet supper Sunday evening was a cornucopia of delights. There were many, many hot and cold selections. The atmosphere was relaxed, and the waiters were charming. While our husbands enjoyed drinks in the Cupola Bar, Saturday evening, my sister and I enjoyed a screening of Somewhere in Time.

We appreciate you sharing your experiences with other travelers, and hope to see you again in ! A dream come true! I feel incredibly thankful and fortunate that I was blessed to have my wedding on the porch at Grand Hotel, and that Marty the wedding coordinator was there every step of the way.
After trying to plan a wedding in my hometown, planning this wedding with her by my side was a piece of cake! Everything went off without a hitch, the weather was perfect, and the grounds, scenery, and the hotel itself were like something out of a storybook. My sister and I spent the morning at Astor's salon where I had my hair, makeup, and nails done. We had breakfast brought to the salon and all the girls were so easy and fun to work with!
Our reception was at The Gate House and our guests were thrilled with their options. The food and drinks were delicious. I'm not exaggerating when I say my wedding day was truly a dream come true, and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.
My husband and I were extraordinarily impressed and hope to make a tradition out of visiting on anniversaries and with our own little family someday! Thank you so much!
