I have several copies of this movie. VHS, DVD’s. Have felt lately that it’s about time to watch it again! My favorite place away from Arkansas and 4 generations of my family having loved this place too. Oh my, what memories over the years we’ve had...β€οΈπŸ‘ŸπŸ§³πŸ¦‹πŸ΄πŸ¦ŒπŸΏπŸ’πŸŒΊπŸŒΈπŸͺπŸš²β›΅οΈπŸ˜

Mackinac is a bucket list place for anyone. Visit the Grand.... Go in the fall! Besides the movie being one of the single greatest love stories, the location is magnificent!

My 21 year old daughter and I come here every September for a mother daughter trip and we watch this every night on the local island channel that plays this 24 hrs a day, oh and the music!!!!!!!! Can’t get enough! Mackinaw Island is my happy place!!!!!❀️❀️❀️

This is my all time favorite move ever! ❀️ I love it so much my oldest daughters middle name is Elise

During our "stay at home time" this is definitely the movie to see! Love the hotel &love the movie!!!!

Love this movie! Just purchased it from Amazon, I had to own it. ❀️

Everything about this movie is grand! ❀️πŸ₯° Give me an old fashioned love story any day! ❀️

Such a beautiful movie. The ending really got to meπŸ˜ͺ. The music is so beautiful.

We stayed in the Jane Seymour suite which was outstanding and the view from up there was amazing ❀️❀️

My favorite movie....and the music is beautiful πŸ’•

I love this movie! It's so cheesy, but, oh Chris Reeve!! <3

You just made my day! My very favorite movie!! My birthday is tomorrow and I am so sad not to be able to celebrate so now I am going to watch πŸ™‚

Love this movie - Richard and Elise - timeless!!

Loved the theme weekend there several years ago.

...Time for an updated reboot? could bring in a slew of new viewers and retain older viewers. Best of all you will always have the best, the original with Reeves and Seymour. Did I fail to mention....Awesome Movie

i love the movie but many nights when i cant sleep, i put it on just to fall asleep to the music

My favorite movie! I’ve been to that tree, “is it you?” πŸ₯°πŸ˜

I have got this movie 2 times from the library and will get again .

I went to Mackinac Island because of this movie!

WE LOVE this movie - always have. We missed our trip to the Grand over SIT weekend the past two years, and moving to AZ this year will free up $$ to go again HOPEFULLY this year. WE LOVE it - the whole experience! Thanks for the thought - we will watch this tonight, as the snow comes again, and we are cloistered.

LOVE the soundtrack too!

I would just love a signed copy of THAT photo--you know the one!!!!.

I LOVE TheGrand Hotel and love this movie..I have the DVD

One of my favorite movies of all time. I have the DVD and the CD as well. Love it. Always wanted to visit the Grand Hotel but it is so expensive. That would be a dream trip.

My all time favorite movie! Have it & the soundtrack!❀

I feel terrible for all of the employees that come from other countries, annually, to work at The Grand Hotel. πŸ™ I have been thinking about them, and hope that they will be paid. I am glad that the opening has been delayed in order to keep everyone safe. Well done, Grand Hotel! <3

Understandable but heartbreaking for my daughter who was looking forward to her last MSCI tournament as a senior! The tournament at the Grand is(now was) her favorite. The Class of 2020 has lost so many lastsπŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”.

This is a rational and sound decision which I'm sure did not come lightly, for the safety and health of all concerned. Thank you.

Sad but Very Wise move! Thank you for thinking of the safety of your guests first. We love you and we will be back asap. <3

The grand Hotel is certainly that.A Grand Hotel. I have admired it from Australia for many years. XX

We were planning on coming that opening weekend but the safety of everyone is far more important. You made the right decision, we will see you later on instead, and then in Oct 😘

We understand and appreciate all you do, we would expect no less than that. The thing that hurts our hearts is that only time we are able to come up with our family is in early May, which we've been doing for years, and had reservations for this year on May 17, which is 5 days before you're opening now. πŸ’”

I’m sad about the delay... but completely understand & am hopeful that my friend Barb & I will be able to change our reservation dates. We were scheduled to check-in a couple days before the new opening day. 🀞That everything goes well for your May 22nd opening. Can’t wait to see your tulip display πŸŒ·β˜€οΈπŸŒ·πŸ˜ŠπŸŒ·

And just like that, we are there for your season opener. We are scheduled for Memorial Weekend at the Grand.

Thank you for this posting, I'm sure , other island businesses willl have to post pone opening as well. It willl be a different begining this season. Everyone stay safe

Understand but disappointed because we were coming for the opening weekend this year. Were contacted today it was cancelled! Stay safe!

Appreciate and understand but will miss our Spring Fling Geocaching event, we will be back for the 2021 Spring Fling!

I would expect nothing less from you than putting the welfare of your guests ahead of all else. Thank you.

Everyone’s health and safety comes first. We were supposed to be there May 17th-19th, hoping to rebook for a later date. Stay safe!!

Sorry to see our reservation will be cancelled, but certainly understand. Stay safe and healthy.

Thank you! We have reservations for Memorial weekend! Looking so forward to driving up.

Thank you for putting people first. Everyone will remember your sacrifice of delaying your opening.

Stay well Grand Hotel staff and thank you for taking care of yourself and Mackinac Island as well as all your guests! πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“

Understandable but oh so sad as we could finally stay because of the spring special. Can't afford it during regular season.

So happy to see you are still opening! Sending positive energy to the Grand Hotel Staff! I’ve been coming ever since I was a kid and knowing there are international staff that have been a part of the seasons for 10+ years and prayerful they are still able to be a part again another year! Might I add, postponing opening day to my birthday which is so fun! Hopefully I will be able to book this year (being a college student and work being set off for now) but still hopeful to come another year! Truly one of the best hotels in the world! πŸ’•

Thank you Mayor Doud for taking all the necessary precautions to protect our Islanders. Are they keeping the ferry's open? What is the protocol at the dock? Are they testing people before the get on the ferry?

Is the Knights of Columbus convention scheduled May 21st to 23rd still on?

thanks for the update looking forward!! πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸΏ

Thank you, Grand Hotel for putting everyone’s safety and well being first. This decision has National, and International impact. Thank you for protecting the people. I would expect nothing less.

I will miss my stay this year but I'm glad to know that you value the health and safety of your staff. I'll be back for the geocaching event in 2021. Have a great season!

You're my Hope in all of this confusion.... I'll be there ASAP...I can't even think about not having the peace that GRAND HOTEL brings to my life. I WILL see you soon!!!❀️

Imagine sitting down on a bench in front of Sadie's at 8:30 in the morning after a night's stay at Grand Hotel. This could be your view! Not to mention the quiet tranquility of the morning hours with birds singing on this island. Truly a one-of-a-kind experience that you have to have for yourself!

Dreaming of a warm summer evening rocking on the porch at the Grand Hotel while gazing toward the Bridge helps me through the day!

Just received the newsletter. You are CHANGING the coffee. Change the wallpaper, paint and flooring. But don’t change the coffee.

Praying so Hard! I must be able to enjoy May at my happy place, The Grand Hotel!

Fantastic place!always a Dream!

We have reservations for Memorial Day weekend. Hope it can still happen!

Be there for Mother’s Day weekend. Hope you will be open!

Grand Hotel is a source of happiness in times like these.

Does this current situation affect your opening day?

I'll planning to be there in August God willing

I will be there in September!

I wish it looked like that now!!

Love the Grand Hotel, we need to visit at some point! Austin Kelley

Happy Spring (we enjoyed the “late” season tulip blossoms 2 years ago). We are praying our June 1st plans at the Grand don’t change with everything going on!! πŸ€žπŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸŒ·

Beautiful. Glad for the steady flow of photo. Will never visit anytime soon.so appreciate the sencery to plant ideas in my little garden.

Beautiful composition of the photograph. I see a truck on the bridge. Maybe it's coming down this way to deliver some toilet paper!

Jane Seymour

Arriving at the Grand Hotel from Somewhere in Time! ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

I love that place. I had been inside. I believe Chris is there in spirit, hence the beautiful flowers. Have fun!

thanks for sharing

Thank you for sharing. .....I came to the island.....because I knew it was Somewhere In Time week. And though not at The Grand....am here to share in the love for Jane/Elise and Chris/Richard....enjoying all the folks in their Somewhere In Time costumes. Am loving all your posts....have a nice time Jane.

I was there while it was being filmed. I got a picture of Jane coming off a carriage to film and I have a picture of Christopher Reeve smiling at me then he winked....I was only 10 years old. What a experience! <3

One of my favorite movies of all time.

My favorite for since the first time I saw it....33 years ago..

That was ONE BEAUTIFUL MOVIE. miss Seymour. Sad, and then beautiful ending....

One of my Favorite Movies ever ! It never played at the Movie Theaters because there was a strike going on the weekend of its release. But about 20 years ago my husband surprised me to a Special Somewhere In Time weekend in Chicago and we all were able to meet some cast members and Watch the Movie on the Big Screen . I will never forget that wonderful day.

SOMEWHERE IN TIME is legendary!!! R.I.P. Christopher Reeves!!! Christopher Plummer is badass in this movie but Jane Seymour is a goddess from another time in this movie!!! Solitaire(Live And Let Die) was sexy but Elise was stunning!!!

Hi Jane would love to have met you today. I watched you and Christopher Reeves being filmed for your wonderful movie. I was born on and graduated high school on Mackinac Island in 1979. Still tear up every time I watch Somewhere In Time. Brings back beautiful memories of a wonderful Summer. Enjoy your visit and Welcome back.

You look the same Jane. I enjoyed being an extra in the movie and hanging out with Reeves and Plummer. Great memories!

Thanks for sharing!

I remember being on Mackinaw Usland when " Somewhere in Time" was filming. My girls & I delivered a " Superman cookie" to Christopher Reeves! Crazy idea hey? We did get a handwritten thank you note from Chris!πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ’₯

I wish Chris was there also !!! I love,love,love this movie

My absolute favorite movie!!!!!! Chris is there in spirit!

The ultimate romantic film.

I would have loved to be there. So lovely of you to share your carriage ride.

My very most favorite movie! That's when I fell for Jane!

As lovely today as she was back in 1979 when she filmed it!

As soon as 'Chris' is mentioned, I teared up. He is definitely with you. Everyone will feel it I'm sure.

This is great! Enjoy and Happy SWIT Anniversary!!!

When i first came up to the Grand, I was playing the soundtrack from the movie and sobbing. I had to call my best friend that I had seen the movie with when it first came out...i was crying and saying I'm here...I finally made it! Took me 30 some years bit I made it! Still one of the most precious moments of my life!

I was just thinking the same of Mr Reeve glad you are there enjoy the beauty wonderful movie Somewhere in timeπŸ˜‡

So lovely meeting you πŸ’—βœ¨πŸ˜

Wish I were there!
