Mission Point Resort – Photos

Over the winter Mission Point Resort completed renovations of 133 guest rooms in the Straits Lodge – all part of a multi-year $10 million update of the resort. (Rooms and suites in the Main Lodge were renovated in 2018.) Here’s a photo album of some of the lodging renovations during the last couple of years along with photos we’ve shared previously of the beautiful grounds and gardens of this gem of a resort on the eastern shore of Mackinac Island.

A look back on our 94 Grand Summer Days here at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island! ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Wonderful place to stay on the island.

My mom loved The Grand and was There during the making of the Movie "This Time for Keeps" and Took a picture of Jimmy Durante. One summer mom and I went there and spent the night. What a Magical place The Grand is ! Things change and that was the last time I was there , about 40 years ago. I sure would love to come back before My life is over.

Great memories of a Grand place! โค๏ธโค๏ธ

One spring trip and one summer trip to The Grand this year. Both trips were indeed Grand! Can’t wait til next year!

The Grand Hotel is my very favorite summer...and sometimes fall place!๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Well ... I look forward to my Fall visit in October! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Thanks for the photos this summer. Can't believe it's over.

The new owners will no doubt continue the proud tradition. That’s probably why they purchased the hotel in the first place.

Would be so awesome to have the luxury of spending the whole summer, without having to work of course

Ahhh, so great! Right?๐Ÿ’—

Well, I hope the new owners don’t ruin this glorious hotel.

Great video. ๐Ÿ‘ captures all that makes GH the perfect summer vacation. โ˜€๏ธ

New owners? How did I miss this?

I hope the new owners don’t change it into another commercialized property and lose the special feeling!

So glad nothing will change under new corporate ownership! Oh, except you now allow cars on the island! And the hotel supports breaking the tradition!

Love this video. I come to the GH three times a year now for a State Convention and always look forward to those visits. I trust the new owners in their statements that they plan on keeping with traditions.

I plan to stay in the Pam Maas Grantham and Dan Grantham suite when I’m there!

This is a beautiful place to see. They have the prettiest flowers there and are breath taking anytime we go to the island. Makes me sad another summer is just about over for visiting Mackinaw Island. But there is next summer and I'm looking forward to going back to once again see this beautiful island again.

I was there!!! I saw them film this!! <3 <3 I worked at Grand Hotel that summer and it was the best summer of my life!

A beautiful movie filmed in a beautiful place.

One of my favorite movies, and the music is beautiful! A visit to the island is on my bucket list

Love the movie and the island. Was always part of my family vacation growing up. Can't wait to go back.

Love the Movie ๐ŸŽฅ. My eldest daughter and I were visiting my middle daughter in Michigan. She planned a trip to Mackinac Island and the grand Hotel. We stayed two nights on Mackinac city by the water and not far from the boat that would carry us to Mackinac Island. It’s been many years but it is one of the favorite trips I’ve ever taken. I love the grand Hotel in the small town that surrounds it. I would love to take that trip again. Then my middle daughter and youngest live in Florida now. And we are in Pennsylvania. But if there’s a chance that you could go there and do it. It’s beautiful and serene.

Love the movie, that was when I learned of the Grand Hotel. My Husband and I renewed our vows for our 40th Anniversary by the fountain 4 years ago. The hotel staff, from the florist to the waiter's made our renewal and stay so very very special.

Love this movie, my favorite, I have, sound track, Movie, and the original book story comes from, Bid Time Return, and a post card send to me by a friend that visited The Grand Hotel. I always wanted to visit the place.

A beautiful film. I have been to the island twice. Richard Mathison was a great author.

Great movie ..and I've been there years ago and rented a buggy to go around the island.. beautiful ๐Ÿ˜ can't wait to go back and stay in Grand hotel, back then just took a tour

This movie is in my top favorites. The music is beautiful too โค

I was there that summer and watched the film crew on Main Street. A very fond memory.โค๏ธ

Was there on our honeymoon and watched some of the filming! Loved the movie and all the history about it out at Mission Point!

One of my favorite movies !!! My daughter and I went there because we loved the movie so much. Wonderful vacation.

Great movie! I remember seeing it in 1980 or ‘81 at the theatre.

My favorite movie and music of all time. Went last year for the first time to the island for the Somewhere In Time weekend. Doing it again this year. Hoping it becomes a regular part of my life.

Hope to make it there in the next few weeks! Had the theme song from the movie in my wedding in 1981. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

I love the movie! We were married on the island 12 years ago, because it seemed like the most romantic place for our wedding. We were just there last weekend and spent the afternoon in the Grand Hotel! We also hiked in the area some parts of the movie where filmed. I never get tired of visiting and staying on the island. This picture is at the gazebo called “Somewhere In Time! On our wedding day I gave my husband a pocket watch with the chain like in the movie and had a special message engraved on it.

Used the soundtrack as my wedding music in 1985...my favorite movie of all time โคโคโค Bucket list trip for sure

We stayed at the Hotel for three days in Aug. We had never seen this movie. Had to order it and watched for the first time. So good. We loved out visit there...

We were there when they were filming this movie. So much fun

Saw the movie years ago, and love it. My husband recently found this movie on vhs at a thrift store. Still in it's original shrink wrap. ๐Ÿ˜€

I just ordered this DVD..it tells all the background of movie filming! Im from Mi. Love to visit someday! Live in Wa. Now.

My most favorite movie of all time! Love the music,loved Christopher Reeves,love Jane Seymour!

Thank You so much for posting this. Still watch the movie from time to time. It is my husbands and my favorite to watch together. Always in my dreams. <3

I spent a lot of time during the summer on Mackinaw Island with my grandma & grandpa Bertram. The best time of my childhood.

It's the best! Good food and dining experience!

Oh Grand Hotel how do I sooo love thee...โคโคโค

I loved staying there for our anniversary many years ago

Visited in August. Our boys, (both construction workers) dressed for the occasion, which is rare for them. They are used to jeans, T-shirt’s & work boots. Great time the days we were there. Very relaxing.

Brings back memories. Wish we were there!

One of our favorite traditions at Grand Hotel!

We had our 25th wedding anniversary dinner at the Grand Hotel! We were married on the island at the Windermere by Margaret Doud, the mayor.

Dinner with my daughter this past spring.

Great experience.

Such a great experience and wonderful memories โค

On my bucket list enjoy.
