I recently saw a documentary on PBS (?) about the Grand Hotel and really enjoyed it!

Your construction crew is the best.... They work wonders!!! I'm so impressed every year that I return to see the renovations and new additions... I believe the Blessings run both ways, it must be a blessing to work for such a great family and Grand Hotel is Blessed to have such a great team! I'm looking forward to all the beautiful new changes ❤️.

Just wondering... Why not use snowmobiles/sleds? Instead of the horses

Love the new renovations. The trelis wallpaper is beautiful! Can't wait to see all the new changes. See you all October 1st. <3

The ferry still comes in the winter?

Is this true Grand Hotel - I was told that sometimes the horses go across the lake with supplies when it’s frozen enough. I thought of that when you posted the frozen choppy waters photo recently. 🐴

We'll be there the 2nd week in May to celebrate our grandsons 21st birthday...We renewed our vows 2 years ago for our 40th Anniversary. Can't wait to see the updates..

Can’t wait to see the changes. Have our dates booked for our second, Grandma, Mom, and Granddaughter trip to the Grand. Last year my daughter was just 5 and half weeks old.

Question: Do you have all the supplies already on the island as the ferry boats are currently not running?

We will be back, if the Grand wii have us.

Hope we can this year for 50th Anniversary

I know they will be just as beautiful as all the other rooms. Looking forward to seeing them.

My favorite place !

Such a beautiful place.....cannot wait to get back!!

The Dibley Family will see you in July! Love From Scandinavias 5 Star Human Potential Brand. The Institute for Human Potential: A 360° Clinic

I will be there in April and can't wait to see all the changes. I always look forward to staying at Grand Hotel.

Absolutely remarkable!!

Awesome

Grand Hotel for the win!
