haha. cute. They're like, "We never get to ride on the ferry and be snowbirds."

Ah..I miss the beauty of Michigan πŸ˜€

Beautiful...

I read they have about 12 horses on the island through the winter. Great shot

"(BEAUTIFUL)"..

I thought the horses were taken off the island for the winter

They're asking "Why did you leave us here in the snow? You trailer your Harley Davidsons south; why not us?"

wonderful

So pretty.

Beautiful picture! Doesn't look like we will be riding our sleds over to the island this winter...That is always my favorite ride of the year!!

Beautiful!

Hope to go in September πŸ˜‰

Great view.

Beautiful

Love

My winter in AZ team

hopefully the photographer will go stand by the steps then, so the horses can see that view too!

Hey Danny!....I remember driving by this house!

That is a beautiful picture of Mackinac Island

Mini Grand with snow.

ha ha ha just got a flash of The Shining...

Very pretty but I'm happy to be in Florida and just looking at your photos!

Tiffani Rae-Schulte and Kristi Dupler: Road trip? Plenty of good rooms available!

A perfect place for a big snow angel!!!! Because it is heaven!

.a beautiful place enfolded in winter's soft white.....somewhere, somewhere in time....

Always beautiful. Worked here for 5 summers, and unfortunately we always missed seeing this island this time of the year since we leave the island after Halloween:(

Now, THAT'S what i call "Pure Michigan". <3

staying on the island, one night looking out our hotel room window there was a truck on the street, I was told there is security and emergencies

The Grand is even grander surrounded by snow

WISH I could afford to spend my summers there!

Now this is where I could take a least one day in this magical place, then back to the sun! 🌴 😎

Oooooohhhhh I see tracks and no grass!

So beautiful. Wish I was there.........

So nice to see my family's house next to the "baby grand" all bundled up for the winter! Thanks for the beautiful photo!

Quiet beauty and looks like Montana snow.πŸ”

Just beautiful wish it was here.Va.Beach,Va

Cars on Mackinac Island ????

The Little Grand in snowy splendor!❄️❄️❄️

What is the name of this home and where on the island is it!!! I can't place it!!???πŸ™ƒ

I just wish I was the one that made that track

Wow! Beautiful after the snowfall. Thanks for sharing.

I love it wish I was there

Grand Hotel

It is starting to feel like winter on Mackinac Island and across the State of Michigan. Sun glistening on the snow in January makes it a Pure Michigan type of day! Clouds and snow showers are forecasted a little later. ... See MoreSee Less

I would love to go in the winter...

I LOVE how that blue ceiling shines in that snow light!

Michigan is the most beautiful state there is. I would have moved back home after I retired, but my Husband doesn't do well in the cold weather. He wants to move to a warmer state, but we are stuck here for now. Maybe later in the future though.

It's beautiful anytime of the year at Grand Hotel! Can't wait for May!

gorgeous pic of THE GRAND HOTEL

We Love all the seasons there on the Island. Do you use horse plows there or engine driven?????β˜ƒβ˜ƒβ˜ƒ

Mackinac, nothing like it no matter what time of the year!

Even more beautiful in the winter!

Oh I love it there! Last time was 45 years ago on our honeymoon! At that time we couldn't afford to stay at the Grand Hotel but we had lunch there!

How do they plow the roads?

Are you open in winter?

The Grand is always beautiful. I've been once but would love to be able to go again.

Wonderful experience - would be cool ( sorry about the pun) to stay in the Winter - but it is not open.

I wonder how the caretaker is doing.

Missing the Grand HotelπŸ’•

Somewhere In Time!!

Is the hotel open in the winter?

Going to Mackinac this summer- think it will look a little differentπŸ€—

So pretty in the snow! Can't wait to see you again this summer!

Is this picture from someone who stays on the island all winter?

Guess I will have to pass , sitting on the front porch today.πŸ˜‘

I am lucky to have been there but not in Winter

Love Mackinac Island!! Would love to live there!

So beautiful! One day I will see the island in the winter.

Miss the trees going up to the GRAND.

Beautiful.I saw a program xmas Mackinaw .

Everybody got to ride their snowmobiles to town.

I've never seen the island with snow. It's beautiful from Florida.

Nicole we should sneak away one winter !

I bet it doesn't smell like it it does in the summer. It will burn the hair right out of your nose.

I hope everyone there enjoys the freedom to zip around the island on your snow machines!!!

Take away those snowmobiles and it could be any year.

Love Mackinac Island. Love Joanns fudge.

This scenery is beautiful:)

Looks like a Charles Wysocki jigsaw puzzle. ........

We haven't been there in years but it is really a neat place.. Beautiful picture!

I so want to snowmobile out to Mackinac Island again, Such a great trip.

Is anything open in winter on the island?

Never been there in the winter, it's on my bucket list.

Is that noisy snowmobiles there on the island?

Hi Linda. It's Olga from California. Thank you so much for posting Macinac with snow. That is so beautiful. Some day we will come to visit snowy Macinac.

the definition of #puremichigan in my heart <3

Looks like snowmobiles have replaced the bicycles.

Can't wait to back there.....so beautiful

Hi, Family and Friends, this is where, Sharon, grew up !!!

The island is a beautiful place any time of year. I really enjoyed visiting there quite often with my husband. A magical place for sure!!!

Mackinac Island is by far the most magical place I've ever been.

Just beautiful ,looks like something out of a story book! Thanks for sharing Terri . I love the pictures you share !

I love Mackinac Island, especially during Lilac Festival!

Beautiful! Looks like a postcard😍

I met a lady on plane to PLN Sunday night from Australia. She was on her way to the Island for New Years eve - hope she has a great tine on her holiday and a warm coat! .

Are there still dock porters in the winter? It was always fun to see how high they'd get the bikes piled with luggage in season.

Wish I was there! Beautiful pictures, it's amazing how it can feel like your in a different world on the island
