My first visit to Mackinac Island was May 2012 - stayed downtown and adored our hotel. Decided right then and there to return in the fall and bring my mother and father. While making trip plans, more than anything, I wanted to treat them to a once-in-a-lifetime stay in the Grand Hotel. It was so perfect!! So sweet to photograph them enacting the scene from "Somewhere in Time" where Richard and Elise were reunited.
The staff was attentive, the hotel impeccable, robes were divine, beds comfy. The history displayed on almost every wall is so interesting. I was compelled to write a thank you note months later and even received a reply. There are specials offered at different times of the year that can be taken advantage of to make the stay more affordable. We did the bed-and-breakfast special - thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast buffet, possibly even more than the lunch buffet my friend and I experienced in the spring. The views from the banquet room are simply breathtaking. I had the highest expectations imaginable for our stay at the Grand Hotel and they were all met. Can hardly wait to take my granddaughter one day!
