Just walking to the Grand is magic

We come from Minnesota and drive to Manitowac, WI where we board the Badger and sail through night sleeping in our state room. We arrive in Ludington, MI at 6 AM and gradually work our way across northern Michigan through Glen Arbor, Leland, Traverse City, Petoskey, Sault Ste. Marie and finally we sail to Mackinac Island. We always walk to the Grand Hotel and we stop to enjoy a magical garden with hidden objects along the way. Walking up the Hill to the Grand knowing we have the best part of our vacation ahead of us is pure joy. Coming to the Grand Hotel is like coming home.

I remember the First time, as we approached the Grand my heart was pounding in my chest so hard I could hear it in my ears. I started crying and my Husband gave me a bug kiss, because he new how much it meant to me. We renewed our vows for our 40th Anniversary by the beautiful fountain..our next visit was just as amazing... Love this beautiful place. We shall return again..

Beautiful! Just watched "Inside Grand Hotel" on PBS last night...for (at least) the 10th time. G.H. is indeed an enchanted place!!

Looking forward to coming back!😀

Loved my private birthday tour of the island last fall! Such a special place!!! ❤️💖

This is a beautiful pic and it certainly captures the enchanting beauty of Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel. I hope to return again someday.

Sigh... gasping for spring!! 🌷🌿🌺

Grand Carriage is so Romantic💕

Here’s our trip to Mackinac 🚙 ✈️ 🚙 ⛴ 🚲 🐴 ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

You have to see it to understand the magic.

Wow great, love to live and work in Grand Hotel

Beautiful--the entire island!! One of my favorite places in the world💕💕

I agree wholeheartedly!!! Every trip up to Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel is filled with excitement. You would think each time is the first, but it "Never" gets old. The anticipation of seeing everyone and getting the key to the room which has been assigned is always exciting ❤️. I can't begin to put into words how much I love and enjoy staying at Grand Hotel ❤️💕❤️. It is truly a part of my life.😍

Agreed! Can’t wait!🌸

We are coming to Mackinac island again in July. It never gets old and I cry Everytime I see the Grand.

Beautiful hopefully we will there soon

Hermoso Hotel y la Isla Linda!!!

You have to see it to understand the magic.

LOve the Grand! ❤️

So this is your next trip?
