Fabulous shot, I assume from the roof!

when you're in this bar, you're already pretty high.

What! I was there for lunch yesterday! I didn’t know the Cupola bar was open 😢. I guess I better go back for that drink. Lunch was fabulous btw

Loved the Bloody Mary there!

Yep! My favorite spot for a drink (besides the porch!)

I hope you all went up to it when we were there last month.

Great place to relax, have a drink and just enjoy the view !

It is a spectacular view from in there!

My favorite watering hole

Jim McDowell & I on our honeymoon in this most romantic cupola 💞

Best place to watch the sunrise or sunset. Grand Hotel has you covered day or night 😍.

Our favorite place for the sunset!

Been there , done it and got the tshirt!

Must do every year for 36 years and counting!

Love the view from the Cupola Bar!☺

A throwback in time. Just beautiful.

Could not agree more! A special place!

Even in the fog

Indeed it is!

Unique space with great views❤️

Danna Reeves Wolf Cheryl Balconi. One of these days a revisit to enjoy that view.

Love it!🍷

Perfect view every time. Magical ❤️

Great spot

My husband and I loved this movie and we were married on the island. He passed away last year and on his tombstone I had picture of Mackinac etched on it and the words "Somewhere In Time" also above his name. It makes me happy knowing he would love what I did.

To anyone who has never attended the Somewhere In Time Weekend-- put this on your bucket list. This film is so beautiful because it was filmed at Grand Hotel and Mackinac Island! The Weekend is a feast for the eyes, as most of us dress in period (1912) clothing! Staying at Grand Hotel is something you will never forget! Sincere thanks to the Musser family for hosting us for all these years, and giving us so many memories to cherish!

My favorite movie!❤️. I had the music played at our wedding 27 years ago.

I worked at the Grand during filming. Some co-workers were extras. Pretty memorable. Loved the movie.

We traveled there four years ago!

This movie is what has inspired me to want to visit the Hotel! Beautiful

I really want to go there someday!

38th anniversary

I was there during some of the filming. 🙂

Even after seeing it at least 20 times, it still makes me cry! ❤😢

Christopher Reeve was so handsome

Now that music is going through my head...... ❤

Makes me sad to think of Christopher Reeve' enduring, brave, struggle.

That was a great movie.

One of the best hotels we ever stayed at .. love the Somewhere in Time weekend 👍🏼❤️

Love, love, love this movie and Jane Seymour!

This was my favorite movie.

My favorite movie and would love to see the beautiful Grand Hotel ❤️

Great movie, super great place to vist!

I've read the book a couple of times and also seen the movie . . great!!

Love, love that movie!

The best movie EVER!!!

How I would love to be there for that! My all time favorite movie,never get tired of it!

I too had the music played in my wedding!

❤️❤️❤️ the movie and the hotel!!!

Comment on Facebook

This is the room my Mom and I stayed in this week. It was beautiful. So far, we've stayed in the Nancy Reagan, the Barbara Bush, the Jackie Kennedy and I'm going to get her the Laura Bush if I can get her up there,again. She's 88! Lol

We took our kids when they were little to the Grand Hotel. Best vacation ever.

We were blessed to stay in this room, words can not describe.💕

This and every room in Grand Hotel is so beautiful and special. It doesn't matter how many times I visit, I always get excited to see which room I'll be staying in. I love them all, and wouldn't think of going anywhere else to get away from the hectic world we live in. I'm so grateful for each time I get a chance to stay!!! Love Grand Hotel ❤️

Thanks for posting! I so wanted to see the inside of this suite on my visit in May!!!

Does one get to choose their room?

I Love it

Love the memory of our stay in this room‼️💜

So beautiful! All of the rooms are beautiful and special. <3

Very pretty. Gotta our on my bucket list

Loved this room nearly as much as the Betty Ford. And the surprise every year is so so fun!

Loved the Rosalynn Carter suite that we stayed in last month.

Pretty and elegant, rightly so. Personally I prefer the brightly colored rooms though. 😆

I can’t remember which one we stayed in. It was pink with pink and white flowers it was gorgeous. But it’s been 17 years.

What a mishmash of colour! 😕

💙💛

Is there a Grace Kelly suite?

Wonderful! Wish I could afford it!

Beautiful

Sister Sue do you remember our stay here in this room?

Nowhere else but at Grand Hotel!

Thank you for sharing!

Nice but I prefer 15

WOW!

wow!
