The old-world elegance of Grand Hotel envelops you the moment you step onto Mackinac Island and board a horse-drawn carriage taxi or stroll the short distance to the hotel. Either way, your passage will be peaceful; cars aren’t allowed on Mackinac Island--one of the many traditions that still reign from the opening days of Grand Hotel back in 1887. This Victorian-style hotel possesses the world’s longest veranda--a 600-foot porch that stretches the full length of the property, one of Michigan’s oldest golf courses and a wide variety of leisure attractions.
The property has been a venerable icon of summer resorts since it opened, but the Grand achieved cinematic fame when the 1980 film Somewhere in Time, starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, was shot on location. But don’t let its turn-of-the-century facade cast the impression that the property itself is antiquated. The slower, more leisurely pace of the past merges with all the amenities of the present to make your stay memorable.
Guest rooms are individually appointed, while the elegant suites include antiques and rare memorabilia. Six of the suites are named for first ladies Jacqueline Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson, Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter, Nancy Reagan and Barbara Bush, who were all consulted in the designs. A variety of special package deals like the Murder Mystery Weekend and Somewhere In Time offer a variety of ways to enjoy the distinctive property.
And just beyond the hotel grounds, the island offers numerous other diversions, including Fort Mackinac and a historic village with quaint shops featuring Mackinac’s world-famous fudge.
The film "Somewhere in Time" (1980), starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, was shot on location here.
