Best vacation ever. Hotel room was very clean. The food was excellent. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. Would love to go back someday. The fudge is second to none and you must visit Sadies ice cream parlor.

My husband and I took a day trip to Mackinac Island and made a point to visit the Grand Hotel. As with most other people (particularly women) I've been wanting to see the Grand Hotel every since I saw Somewhere in Time. Pictures don't do it justice. It is a magnificent place. I was a little annoyed that we had...

The moment you step on to the world's longest wooden porch, you are stepping back in time. The atmosphere is relaxed, yet refined. The hotel's interiors are colorfully designed by Carlton Varney. We love that there is a dress code after 6:00 pm. There is live music throughout the day in various spots, and the gardens are magnificent. It is...

We knew from the minute we left the car, and luggage, and boarded Shepler's Ferry Boat for Mackinac Island, it was going to be another memorable trip! Even though this was one of many trips, for us, it still remains very special. What a view we got as the big boat went closely by the Mackinac Bridge, and then to...

Had an absolutely outstanding one-night stay with family here recently. Our bags were transferred easily from the ferry to the hotel, so we enjoyed our 10 minute walk in nice weather. The hotel grounds are beautiful, they have staff located on the walk up to the entrance to ensure that only hotel guests (or paying guests) are allowed in, which...

Hands down my favorite vacation!!!! We go every year. This is a staple for our family. Great as a romantic vacation or a getaway with children of all ages. My favorite time to go is in the fall because of all the beautiful colors but, even Mother's Day in spite of the cold weather was a memorable trip. Negative aspects...

Mackinac Island is wonderful, and the experience of crossing on the ferry, being picked up by the hotel's carriage, and being in the location of "Somewhere In Time" was outstanding. The exterior of The Grand Hotel is just like all of the photos you have ever seen - absolutely overwhelming with its long façade, white rockers, and American flags. The...

If you ever saw the movie "SOMEWHERE IN TIME" then this is the place you must see. The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island was at the very top of our list. Hate to say this was the best with the years we traveled but it was right up there. We did other states that year year but this place made...
