TILL NEXT TIME

Just one of the magnificent homes on Mackinac Island. Many people have asked to see more of The Grand Hotel. Since we were not staying at the hotel this trip, we could not get to those areas. There won't be any photos of the lobby, rooms (incidentally, they have 385 rooms and no two are alike), or other areas of the hotel. Should you want, however, you may see more on Flickr or YouTube, just click one or both of the links to be magically transported to their site. You can book a special internet rate of $149. per person. This includes your breakfast and dinner as well as discounted ferry tickets. Should you still be hesitating, there is no tipping within the hotel. It may not be high season but, Fall is beautiful and it is The Grand. Really, not a bad deal.

  1. That's okay that there are no interior pictures. It leaves much to the imagination. I enjoy this style. It reminds me of the world of the Great Gatsby.

  7. The idea of decoraing 385 rooms differently makes me dizzy. ;-)

    Sounds fun but I think I'll be viewing the autumn colours from a more affordable place this year: Chez EG Tour Guide.

  12. I've stayed on the Island once, and it is lovely, we had a great time. This is a wonderful shot. I love that there are no (or extremely few) motorized vehicles there.

  13. The homes look as spectacular as the hotel. The old Victorian era hotels, like the Grand, Mount Washington in Bretton Woods, NH and even the Tampa Bay Hotel have to be experienced to be believed. Their idea of luxury cannot be surpassed and is still so unbelievable today. I appreciate your shots of Mackinac.

    Nice post!

  15. This image conveys a traditional feel. BTW, $149 is surprisingly moderate for such a splendid location.

  16. So are the Snowbirds flying away??? Have a safe trip home. I'm sure your summer has been wonderfully cool and delightful. I'm glad. See ya back in Ft. Lauderdale where it's still a bit warm. :)
