BEAUTIFUL! <3 <3 <3

We were there for a short stay this week and it was Fantastic as usual!!! 17 years without missing a year staying at Grand Hotel.... And for the last 8-10 years I haven't missed a single month that they are open.... It all started about 50 years ago with my first visit to the island...I can't imagine life without Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel ❤️

What a great picture! (both of them)

Lynn Forsythe Sanders let’s go!!! 🙂

Great idea!!!

Loved being there it is a wonderful place

Question: is there anyplace nearby handicapped accessible to have a picnic? Not that *we* know of....just wondering if it has been done! 😊

Good choices on the Cherry Coke & Great Lakes chips!

Want!

Love the picnic lunch from #GrandHotel. Jennifer Kanarr-Hendrick and I have shared wonderful memories picnicking on the Island. It makes me happy =)

I would love to do this.

Best last day event, ever!

Great idea!

I love this place💜

Think I will do that this weekend when we do our bike ride around the island

We did the picnic lunch on our way home, so we had a little of the Grand on the day we left😊

Bridgette Mikeska so Chicago was this past wkend and PH is this wkend right?

My wife and I saw Whitehawk arrive Sunday afternoon from our fantastic Cupola Suite 👍

Welcome sailors, well done!

The Grand always takes super care of the participants in both of the races.

Greta Huizenga have you seen this? Might be something up your alley. We loved staying at the Grand Hotel - don’t know if you’ve tried it.

Rick Sayre

Joel W Paasch if only you had a yacht this could’ve been us buddy

Nick Turney in the house!

Wonderful!

Thanks for a great event CYC and The Grand Hotel!

We were on the island the year that the cable was cut and there was no power. It was so lovely to watch the boats, so quiet

Great pics!

This is my favorite destination. I could easily live there

We were there July 2015 for our 40th Anniversary. We were able to enjoy watching the boats come in from the front porch and our bedroom window...we plan to be be back for our 45th, if God says the same...one of our favorite Hotels and places to be...felt right at home...

We were there many years ago for our honeymoon during the race! Congratulations to the winners! Jacqueline Gillam Fairchild--author: Make Me Over, Estate of Mind, The Scrap Book Trilogy, Greater Expectations
