Grand Hotel – Photos

Grand Hotel is situated on the southwestern bluff of Mackinac Island overlooking the Straits of Mackinac and – in the distance – the Mackinac Bridge. From the front porch – the world’s largest at 660 feet – guests can look down at the well-kept gardens and relax and enjoy the ambiance of “somewhere in time”. It is no wonder that hollywood has chosen to come here more than once. Indeed, like a classic movie, Grand Hotel is larger that life.

Still a fair amount green on Mackinac Island, however you can find some great fall color now and more peak color is on the way. #mackinac #mackinacisland #fallcolors

Instagram post 18109231924044679 The Grand Hotel overlooks the Straits of Mackinac sitting picturesquely on beautiful Mackinaw Island, Michigan. It has beckoned its guests to a bygone time since its opening in 1887. It was  advertised as a retreat for vacactioners to arrive by steam ship from Chicago, Montreal and Detroit. The Grand Hotel's front porch is the longest in the world and known for its "Flirtation Walk" for island romantics. Mark Twain lectured in the Grand Hotel in 1895 with the admission fee for his speech being $1.00. THIS TIME FOR KEEPS, starring Jimmy Durante and Esther Williams was filmed on the island in 1947, and in 1980, SOMEWHERE IN TIME, starring Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour and Christopher Plummer was filmed at the Grand. Some say that the hotel is haunted with claims of ghosts being spotted of men, women, boys and girls (but, usually ghostly women) wearing Victorian clothing of the 1800s. A top-hatted male ghost is accustomed to frequent the hotel bar. The Grand Hotel is one of my favorite places to visit and certainly an inspiration for my new book, BITTERWOOD COMMONS. If you haven't read it, pick up your copy today. It's on Amazon and in the Kindle Store.

Instagram post 17853901861611614 I was in a home decor daydream. 
Mackinac Island embodied all things cozy and vintage. Through it's beautiful long porches, neutral colors, and majestic gardens. All the things that make a home haven.

I enjoyed walking in to every store along the lake and picking out cute vintage decor and cozy blankets (because this girl can't enough blankets) to bring back home.
